A board game sale is a rare thing, so when one is happening I like to shout about it quite loudly. Consider this an almighty bellow, then, as Amazon US is offering up to 25% off across a range of tabletop hits.

Over 50 games in total are included in the offer, so to whittle down some of the choices I’ve picked out a few of the biggest or most popular games that have seen the biggest discounts.

First up is everyone’s favourite social deception game in which you get to eat your friends or try to find out who the cannibalistic canines are amongst the pack. The Ultimate Werewolf Deluxe Edition is stripped down to just $9.38. The game can support up to 75 players, though I’d feel sorry for whoever has to moderate that mess. Still, on a smaller scale, this is easily one of the best games out there – especially if you’re a fan of Avalon or The Resistance.

Jumping up a little in terms of complexity, you can also get Forbidden Island for $11.99. This co-operative game sends players hunting for hidden treasures across a slowly sinking island. It’s a fun and tense challenge as you’ll need to think fast and move smartly in order to escape in time.

Taking it even further than that, there’s Eldritch Horror for $36.53. Another co-operative adventure, in this you’ll be taking on the role of investigators as they travel across the globe to uncover weird goings-on, fight otherworldly monsters and try to stop the rise of an elder god. All in a day’s work, eh? It’s a tough and heavy story-driven game but one that can create some thrilling survive-by-the-skin-of-your-teeth moments.

There are many more that I could easily pick out as good as, if not better, than some of the above choices. Perhaps your best bet is to go to the Amazon US board game sale page yourself and have a scroll through everything on offer.
