Amazon Prime Day has been good to board game lovers these past few years, and the most recent round of discounts from October Prime Day is no exception. Polygon has pored over the entire website looking for the best deals. Whether you’re looking to pick up a few new titles or completely renovate your entire collection, now is a great time to roll the dice on a new title.

Highlights for October Prime Day include Star Wars: The Deckbuilding Game, a solid little card game that isn’t collectible — everything you need is right there in the box. You’ll also find Robo Rally, a beloved game about programming cute little robots, which has a great new reprint available from Renegade, its new publisher. You can find the smash Kickstarter hits ISS Vanguard (great for Mass Effect fans) and The Witcher: Old World — the deluxe edition, no less! — for a steal. And if anyone in your family has picked up the chess bug, then we’ve found a few handmade sets that will help elevate their game.

If you’re looking other ways to expand your tabletop collection, we’ve rounded up the best Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and more tabletop deals of Prime Day 2023.
