The Prime Day board game deals have ended in their official capacity, but we’re still seeing a lot of great discounts across a whole range of board games. If you’ve missed the sales event, or are just casually looking for a deal, then you’ll still find some good price discounts – and absolutely good enough to jump on immediately.
Prime Day board game deals still on sale
Sure, you may think the 48-hour Amazon Prime Day event and its fallout is just about laptops, Kindles, or TVs, but tabletop gaming gets its fair share of attention too. Last year’s Prime Day offered discounts on everything from well-known classics to the best board games, for example, and this year saw some similar action – action that has continued, too. In fact, we’ve been very pleasantly surprised by how darn great some of 2022’s offers have been so far and still are. When you combine that with how expensive most tabletop games are at full price, those Prime Day board game deals that are still going represent even better value.
GamesRadar’s team knows their board games, so we’ve included useful tips on what the games are good for, and more all here on this page. Read on for everything you need to know to make the most of the Prime Day board game deals that are still available.

While this is now a bit unlikely to grant you access to any special deals now that the event has finished, it might be worth it to save on shipping still and you’ll also bag the extra benefits like video and music streaming and Prime gaming. Just remember to cancel it before the $14.99/£7.99 per month cost kicks in if you’re not interested in fully signing up.

$39.99 $24.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £18 – We have a real soft spot for the Villainous series, so seeing the strategy game come down in price for the Prime Day board game deals (not something that happens all too often, by the way) isn’t an opportunity to miss if you ask us. It was a dollar cheaper yesterday on day two of the deals, but this is still an excellent price.
Terraforming Mars |
$69.95 $47.11 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $31 – As an eternally popular game that always hits top 10 lists, we’d highly recommend grabbing Terraforming Mars while it’s less expensive – it was lower over the past few days, but this is still $22 off.

D&D Starter Set |
$19.99 $13.29 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Codenames Duet |
$24.95 $13.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Prime Day board game deals still available – UK
£44.99 £22.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £21 – OK, so the theme is a bit on the nose considering the last few years. But Pandemic existed long before COVID and is one of the best games out there, so seeing it drop to just five pence off its lowest ever price is pretty stellar. Trust us, it’s a must-play.
Disney Villainous |
£39.99 £29.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £10 – This is comfortably one of our favorite board games, and it’s so rare to see it on offer. With that in mind, you shouldn’t miss this low price. It’s not the cheapest we’ve seen Villainous, but it’s still pretty good all-round.
Exploding Kittens |
£19.99 £14.40 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £6 – Want an awesome party game? Exploding Kittens will never disappoint. Accessible, bizarre, and quick, it’s a great way to start the Prime Day board game deals.
7 Wonders Architects |
£39.99 $28.90 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £11 – The original 7 Wonders is excellent but complicated, so seeing this streamlined, bite-size version drop down in price is an early highlight of the Prime Day board game deals. It’s actually one of our top games of 2022 so far.
£22.99 £16.60 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £5 – This is one of our new favorites when it comes to parties. Splitting your group up into two, it makes each team figure out the connection between four seemingly random words. That makes it a superb ice-breaker and a good option if you’re playing with lots of people at once.
The Mind |
£10.99 £8.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £2 – This is a game that feels like it shouldn’t work, but it really does. Challenging players to put down number cards in the correct order without saying a word or gesturing, it forces you to come up with a new way to communicate and is a lot of silly fun as a result.
Bunny Kingdom |
£49.99 (opens in new tab) £37.57 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save £12 – If you assumed this would be a cute and sweet game, you thought wrong. It’s a delightful strategy epic in which you have to conquer the kingdom, so seeing it drop in price for the post-Prime Day board game deals is great.
Prime Day board game deals – FAQ
Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of reductions here and there. Some savings do go live for all Amazon users during the event. Plus, it’s worth noting that the competition (like Best Buy and Walmart) get in on the action with price cuts of their own.
What to expect from Prime Day board game deals 2022
Much like Prime Day video game deals, tabletop doesn’t always make the biggest wave during this sales event; many of the offers won’t stray far from discounts we get all year round. However, that isn’t to say you can’t save a good chunk of money if you keep your eyes peeled. A saving is still a saving, after all.
As an example, you’re practically guaranteed a win with classic board games such as Catan, the Pandemic board game, and Ticket to Ride. Even though they enjoy a reduction on the regular, we usually find their Prime Day prices to be better than usual.
Similarly, good parent-present candidates like Wingspan or Azul tend to be more affordable during sales like Prime Day as well. Because these can clock in at $50+ normally, it’s a good time to invest.
All the same, we’d recommend keeping the closest eye on premium hobby games such as Terraforming Mars, Disney Villainous, Twilight Imperium, Gloomhaven (not to mention its smaller prequel, Jaws of the Lion), or Scythe. These also have their prices cut during sales events, and while most record lows are saved for Black Friday, you can still get the likes of Villainous – which doesn’t normally enjoy a reduction – for much less than normal.
It’s a great opportunity to pick up cheaper party titles by studios like Big Potato Games, too. Examples such as Blockbuster: The Game can come crashing down to a mere handful of dollars during events like this, reducing them to impulse-purchase territory.
Naturally, Prime Day board game deals aren’t the only things worth looking into. The sales event also has a lot of other tech at massively reduced prices, including Prime Day laptop deals and Prime Day TV deals. If you want to keep your focus on tabletop though, don’t miss the top board games for adults.
