Amazon’s annual Prime Day event is set for June 21 and 22, and is sure to include tons of deals on board games, card games, and tabletop role-playing games. This year’s promotion will also include the ability to support small businesses that partner with the online retailer. The announcement was made early Wednesday morning in a new release.

“Prime members will again be able to support small businesses this Prime Day,” Amazon said in the news release, “with more than a million deals from small and medium-sized businesses. Members can shop across local Black-owned, woman-owned, military family-owned, and many more small businesses. For Prime Day and throughout the rest of 2021, Amazon will spend more than $100 million to fuel the success of small businesses selling on Amazon, including promotional activities to encourage customers to shop with them.”

Here at Polygon, we’ll be putting an emphasis on rooting out the best Prime Day deals in tabletop gaming. For the last several years Amazon has made an effort to stock the most popular hobby board games, card games, and role-playing games. Past Prime Day promotions in that category have included deep discounts, buy-two-get-one-free promotions, and more.

Those who are interested can get a head start. According to Amazon, on June 7 through June 20 Amazon will offer a $10 credit for future Prime Day purchases. All you have to do is spend money during that period of time on “select small business products and brands based in the U.S. Amazon store.” Expect more information as the promotion kicks off.
