One Night Ultimate Werewolf box and components on a black table Polygon

If your board game nights are getting repetitive, you might want to check out Monday’s Gold Box deal at Amazon. For 24 hours only, the retailer is discounting popular strategy board games by up to 60%.

This sale seems tailor made for board game fans looking to try something new, since many of the titles are sequels, expansions, or spiritual successors to some of the most popular games of the last decade. King of New York, Richard Garfield’s follow-up to his bestselling, kaiju-inspired game King of Tokyo, is on sale for $28.61 ($21.38 off.) Eldritch Horror, inspired by the Lovecraftian game Arkham Horror, is down to an all-time low price of $36.52. Pandemic creator Matt Leacock also designed the co-op game Forbidden Island, on sale for $11.99 ($6 off.) And several games in the One Night Ultimate Werewolf family, which can be played on their own or as Werewolf expansions, are discounted.

There are a few stand-alone games worth checking out as well, many of them appealing to a specific fandom. The DC Comics Deck-Building Game is $19.87 ($25.12 off) and several of its expansions are discounted too. Fans of Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles can pick up a real life copy of Tak, the game Kvothe learns in Vintas.

Check out the rest of the discounted games at Amazon. As with all gold box deals, the sale runs for 24 hours only. This deal ends at 3 a.m. PT on Tuesday, July 30.
