You then roll five dice and have three rolls to get the highest score in one of the aforementioned score categories. At the end of the game, whoever gets the highest point total on their sheet wins.

Did you know that Rummikub won the most prestigious board game of the year award, the Spiel Des Jahres, in 1980 when it came out? That is like winning an Oscar, and unlike many others on the list from back then, this title has not faded into obscurity and presses on hard. Ask a family what their traditional game during a holiday and they will probably say Rummikub. This board game deal is not as big of a drop as the others, but the game is so great you should really take the opportunity to put it on your shelf, or give it to absolutely any person of any age for a last-minute gift.

#01 IMHOTEP (Family)
If this list was “best games for families of 4” this would probably be the best possibility ever. Players become builders in Egypt who want to emulate the first and best-known architect there, Imhotep. Over six rounds, they move wooden stones by boat to create five seminal monuments, and on a turn, a player chooses one of four actions: Procure new stones, load stones on a boat, bring a boat to a monument, or play an action card. While this sounds easy, naturally the other players constantly thwart your building plans by carrying out plans of their own. Only those with the best timing — and the stones to back up their plans — will prove to be Egypt’s best builder. Very rare deal right here.
49% off to 20.49 | Buy Imhotep via Amazon
[no longer active] #02 5 Second Rule: Uncensored (party)
This discount basically makes the game basically free. It is the original 5 Second Rule meets Cards Against Humanity. It seems easy to name three uses for your tongue, but can you do it without getting tongue-tied or flustered? Everyone’s watching you, wondering what exactly you use your tongue for, and time is twisting down-you only have five seconds to dig into the smutty corner of your mind and just spit it out!
69% off to $7.83 | Buy 5 Second Rule: Uncensored
#03 Machi Koro Legacy (family / engine-building)
The Machi Koro mechanic is where you roll dice and get coins if you have buildings that match that number and then you use that money to buy more buildings. Legacy builds on top of the original Machi Koro with lots of new bells and whistles that have all been VERY WELL RECEIVED by the public. A great board game deal right here. Everyone says to go straight to Legacy, it is that good. Whether you are new or you love the series, this is for you.

[no longer active] #01 Azul (puzzle strategy)
*BIGGER % DROP THAN BEFORE* This award-winning strategy game is definitely worth a purchase. Sure the 34% discount is not huge, but the game is so good that even a 5% discount should make you run and get it. In the game Azul, players take turns drafting colored tiles from suppliers to their player board. Later in the round, players score points based on how they’ve placed their tiles to decorate the palace. Extra points are scored for specific patterns and completing sets; wasted supplies harm the player’s score. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. This is one of the top board game deals happening right now.

#01 Kingdom Builder (strategy)
A quality game with 50% off is not something we have seen a lot of in the last two days. This is a great deal and on a Spiel des Jahres award for 2012 (the most prestigious board game of the year award, it is like a best picture Oscar) to boot. This is a strategic territory control game based on the ancient board game “Go”. The board and the objectives change every game so you can play over and over again. This was an instant classic when it came out and still is today. There is a reason it is one of the few to win the most prestigious award in all the land.

#02 Arkham Horror: The Card Game (thematic adventure)
HISTORIC LOW!! In the game, you and your friend (or up to three friends with two Core Sets) become characters within the quiet New England town of Arkham. The basic mode of play in Arkham is not the adventure, but the campaign. You might be scarred by your adventures, your sanity may be strained, and you may alter Arkham’s landscape, burning buildings to the ground. All your choices and actions have consequences that reach far beyond the immediate resolution of the scenario at hand — and your actions may earn you valuable experience with which you can better prepare yourself for the adventures that still lie before you.
42% off to $22.99 | Buy Arkham Horror: The Card Game via Amazon

This one is a bit random but come on, it is about half off! You can get a classic game which will bring hours of fun for the cost of a large latte. It is a two-player game and each person has a board with pictures of many different people. Each player has a secret character and you need to guess things like “are you a girl” or “do you wear a hat” to eliminate people and get the answer before the other player. This is a classic for kids up there with Hungry Hungry Hippos. For this price, why not. Such a great gift option.
46% off to $6.99 | Buy Guess Who via Amazon
[no longer active] #04 Escape Room in a Box: Flashback (escape room)
This is not a “run as fast as you can” to get it deal, but it is good enough to mention. There are four names in the escape room board game and this is one of the better one. The others are more straight forward while this newer release is more hip and stylish. This “flashback” version of the franchise has really cool style. If you like escape rooms, this is a great one to check out.
33% off to $20.00 | Buy Escape Room in a Box: Flashback via Amazon
[no longer active] #05 Dixit (party / family)
Dixit is one of the most imaginative games to ever come out and it is great to see this one on sale. Dixit is the game of visual storytelling. One player is the storyteller for the turn and looks at the images on the 6 cards they have. Choosing one, they make a sentence. Each other player selects the card in their hands which best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others. The storyteller shuffles everything together. All pictures are shown face up and every player has to bet upon which picture was the storyteller’s. There is a lot going on. A very fun game.
40% off to $20.99 | Buy Dixit via Amazon
#06 Betrayal At House On The Hill (thematic adventure)
This title goes on sale pretty often so don’t think this is an incredible deal. What is incredible is the amazing thematic journey you get to go on in this game.

Betrayal at House on the Hill is a tile game that allows players to build their own haunted house room by room, tile by tile, creating a new thrilling game board every time.

Can’t go wrong with 50% off Catan. The 1995 euro strategy classic that single-handedly ushered us into the modern era of board games. If you are looking to put one game on your shelf that is not Monopoly or Trivial Pursuit THIS IS IT. Start here and then move on to the hundreds of great new games out there. This is a great gift to get anyone, the stigma is a bit nerdy (you are trading grain for example) but it IS NOT and EVERYONE loves playing this unless they are very anti this kind of thing, which is rare. A modular board changes every game with a mixture of five resources and numbers. You roll dice to get resources and you build up your civilization in strategic ways to get more and more resources, and ultimately be the first to 15 to win. 25 years later it is still amazing.
