If your board game closet is looking a little empty these days, Walmart has you covered. The retailer is taking 20 percent off several popular strategy board games and expansions, including a few Game of Thrones-themed games, just in time for the show’s final season.

Polygon has previously highlighted many of the included titles, both in our board game roundups and on our board game show, Overboard. There are the classics, like 7 Wonders and Ticket to Ride, that make for great introductions to Euro-style tabletop gaming. We also love the kid-friendly versions of Catan and Ticket to Ride, which are discounted as well. For those who prefer to work together, Pandemic is the big name in cooperative gaming. It’s only discounted by 10 percent, but the campaign edition, Pandemic Legacy, is on sale for the full 20 percent off. And Mysterium, seen on Overboard, is like Clue meets Dixit.

Of course if you’re just here for the Game of Thrones, there’s plenty to check out. The best Thrones-themed tabletop experience is the aptly titled A Game of Thrones: The Board Game. It’s not only an accurate representation of political struggles in Westeros, it’s also just a good strategy game. For something a little less intense, there’s a cute little card game called Hand of the King. Two Thrones-branded editions of existing games are discounted as well — though A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch, in which players protect and develop the North, is vastly superior to Game of Thrones Monopoly, a superficial reskin of a bad game.

The full list of board games discounted at Walmart is below.
