When will the Cyber Monday board game deals start?

The Cyber Monday board game deals are now over for another year, but that isn't to say you can't save a little money. Despite officially taking place on November 28 (note that they always occur on the first Monday after the Black Friday board game deals), the savings tend to carry on until the end of November at the earliest.

Where will I find the best Cyber Monday board game deals?

If you're trying to hunt down the best Cyber Monday board game deals, Amazon should be your first port of call. It's consistently been at the top of the pile in terms of variety and discounts, so we don't expect 2022 to be any different.

That isn't to say other retailers aren't worth bothering with, though - Walmart and smaller stores like Wayland Games in the UK can have some good price cuts to offer as well. They're just not quite as good as Amazon's.

Cyber Monday board game deals - what to expect

Although the best offers are usually reserved for Black Friday, the Cyber Monday board game deals still have a few tricks of their own. As an example, 2021 saw big hitters like Pandemic strike their lowest ever prices. Basically, don't count out the sale ahead of time.

Generally speaking, the best Cyber Monday board game deals tend to be on family-friendly games like Catan. These already-affordable favorites are knocked down to an even more tempting price, and they're perfect options for get-togethers over the Holidays.

The significant price cuts they enjoyed during the sales period were more than a little eye-catching

However, that isn't to say it won't be a bumper sale for hobby games (such as the best cooperative board games). They received the most tempting discounts back in 2021, so we anticipate a repeat this year. Because they're usually on the expensive side of things, the significant price cuts they enjoyed during the sales period were more than a little eye-catching.
