As you’re searching for Black Friday deals on things that plug into your PC, don’t forget the value of unplugging for a while too. Leaving your desktop and playing a game on your dining room table is a great way to spend a few hours, especially if friends or family are visiting. And the board game business is booming like never before, meaning lots of exciting options to choose from.
Many of those games are pretty darn pricey, however. A big board game can cost far more than even a new triple-A videogame. So Black Friday is a good time to look for a deal on a discounted board game to ease the strain on your wallet.
Below we’ve picked a bunch of our favorite board games that are on sale for Black Friday. Whether you’re looking for long strategy sessions, games you can finish in a quick 30 minutes, or something in between, all the games on our list are smartly designed with enough depth to play them again and again.
Not every board game we love is on sale for Black Friday (unfortunately). Some of our favorites haven’t been marked down at all, and others are discounted but not as much as we’ve seen in the past. The ones on our list below are genuinely good deals, though, and you’re sure to find something you like.
We’ve noted how many players each game is intended for, and roughly how long it’ll take to play them.
