The Best Black Friday Board Game Deals

best board game deals black friday cyber monday australia

Been holding out on bigger board games like Fallout: The Board Game or Blackout: Hong Kong? Good thing the Black Friday sales have started, then.

More retailers are jumping on the Black Friday / Cyber Monday discount period this year. There'll be plenty in earnest from next week onwards, but a few have already started offering between 20 percent and 75 percent off some pretty big name board titles. I'll come back and keep updating this post throughout the course of the next week or so, but for now, let's begin with the deals.

Advent Games

The Sydney-based board game vendor — which is running a three-day event this weekend to preview games fresh out of Essen — has kicked off their storewide bargains already.

Discounts range from 20 percent off to about 75 percent off, but you can find some really solid bargains on games like Luxor, Penny Arcade's Thornwatch, Fallout: The Board Game, the recently shipped Escape Plan, and Adventure Land.

Correction (1550 AEDT): Due to a miscommunication, the store has advised that the checkout code is no longer active, although the original discounts still apply. I've updated the pricing below - apologies for the error.

If you want to look at everything with a 50 percent or greater discount, there's a full listing here, and anything discounted between 25 percent and 50 percent can be found here.

We'll keep updating this post with more deals, but if you spot something that should be included, get in touch or let us know in the comments!


    That listing for Eldritch Horror at Book Depository is just the Forsaken Lore expansion, not the base game.

    For a moment I was unreasonably excited.

      Ditto. That would be a proper black Friday special!

    will end on Sunday, November 1, 10pm AEDT.

    Dang, wheres my flux capacitor

    These seem like pretty average “deals”... Picked up root from Games World for $79 as the regular listed price.
