Amazon Prime Day includes tons of great deals on board games Amazon

It’s Amazon Prime Day, which means tons of deals on thousands of items across Amazon. While we’ve already covered things like PS4 games, Switch games, gaming laptops and even UHD Blu-Ray movies, it’s time to go analog as we highlight some of the best board game deals with Amazon Prime Day.

Disney Villainous

Disney Villainous allows players to break away from being the good guy and really embrace their evil side. Up to six players can take on the role of some of Disney’s most iconic villains, including Ursula, Jafar, Captain Hook, and more. Interestingly, the game features asymmetrical gameplay, meaning players are more or less racing to complete their own goals instead of competing over one shared goal. 

Jumanji: The Game

You’ve seen the movie, so now it’s time to experience the game of Jumanji all for yourself. There’s no better time than now with an Amazon Prime Day sale going on and the new Jumanji movie releasing in December. While the game itself is somewhat simple, and doesn’t suck you into a horror-filled world of wild animals and deadly hunters, it’s still a fun experience to live out the action of the movies in your living room.

Betrayal At House On The Hill

Few things need to be said about Betrayal at House on the Hill that haven’t already been mentioned by board gamers worldwide, but this modern classic is a great way to dip your toes into the wider world of board games beyond the classics. Players start on one team, exploring the mysteries of an abandoned mansion, until something happens that causes the game to plunge into chaos.
