Amazon’s massive strategy board game sale ends today. Here are the best deals

Amazon’s video game sales are notable and fairly frequent, but that isn’t the only type of game you can save on through the retailer. Amazon is currently offering big savings on some of the most popular strategy board games around, but the deals are only good for today. We think it would be a wise strategy to take advantage of them before they’re gone.

Ultimate Werewolf Deluxe

Among the biggest board games being offered through the promotion is Ultimate Werewolf Deluxe Edition, which can be played with up to 74 other people. In the game, you attempt to deduce who among you is an evil monster and must choose someone to eliminate — just hope you don’t guess incorrectly. The Deluxe Edition pack includes expansion with further roles for werewolves and hunters, and a timer app is available to help keep the action moving. The game is normally available for $25, but you can buy it right now for less than $10.

Boss monster 2

For retro video game fans, you can’t go wrong with Boss Monster 2. Acting as a standalone game and an expansion to the original Boss Monster, the sequel has you build traps and dungeons for unsuspecting heroes to discover, and it draws heavy influence from NES-era titles from the ’80s. Typically available for $25, it’s available today for $16. An expansion is also available for roughly the same price.

Post-apocalyptic games: so hot right now. If you’ve been itching to dig into something a little bit meatier while you compete against your friends, then consider Colony. Decades after humanity was nearly decimated, it’s up to you to rebuild civilization with specialized buildings and resources. Dice themselves are a resource in the game, but the basic gameplay loop is simple enough that inexperienced players will still be able to enjoy it. Normally $60, it only costs $29 right now.

These sales are only available until the end of July 29, and we highly recommend taking advantage of at least one. Even if you primarily play video games, you never know when your power might go out, and if you head somewhere without an internet connection, you’ll want to make sure you can still enjoy yourself and have fun! However, if you can’t catch this board game deal, you can always wait for Black Friday deals to leverage from the fantastic discounts.

Amazon Games will publish the next Tomb Raider title
Rise of the Tomb Raider

Amazon Games today announced that it will publish the next Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics.

Crystal Dynamics first teased this new Tomb Raider title during an Unreal Engine 5 showcase in March. Shortly thereafter, Square Enix sold Crystal Dynamics -- as well as its sister studios Eidos Montreal and Square Enix Montreal -- to Embracer Group for $300 million. This obviously left the new Tomb Raider without a publisher, and rather than self-publishin,g Crystal Dynamics has decided to partner with Amazon Games.

These are the best PS5 game Black Friday deals to shop today
Side view of Ellie from The Last of Us Part I.

As someone who collects physical games, I love Black Friday. It’s an easy way to boost my gaming library by picking up a batch of games at a discount. This year’s sales extravaganza is an especially exciting one in that regard. Last year, we were only one year out from the PlayStation 5, so Sony was a little more careful about its discounts considering how light its library of big console exclusives was at that point. With a more robust PS5 library in 2022, Sony seems much more generous about slashing prices this year.

If you’re looking to build your PS5 library, you might want to turn your attention to Best Buy’s Black Friday gaming deals. Tons of titles are discounted this weekend, and that includes most of the PS5’s first-party exclusives. Here are five deals that need to be on your radar, whether you’re a PS5 collector or a new console owner looking to build a backlog.

Home screen for Games on Fire TV

Amazon Fire TVs are getting their own cloud gaming hub dubbed Games on Fire TV. The app is similar to the Samsung Gaming Hub, though its focus is specifically on Amazon Luna rather than other streaming services.

According to a blog post that Amazon published on Wednesday, Games on Fire TV allows players to stream cloud games from their TV. If you're already subscribed to Amazon Luna, the company's cloud gaming service, you can stream games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, play a rotating selection of games for free every month on the Prime Gaming Channel, or download games from the Fire TV app store. The games that are currently available on the Prime Gaming Channel include League of Legends, Fallout 76, Total War: Warhammer II, and Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
