Cheap board games are always a good way to kill time if you're stuck inside, but a discount on Disney Villainous, Betrayal at House on the Hill, 7 Wonders, Ticket to Ride, Catan, and beyond? That's not bad at all for some of the best board games (opens in new tab) around.

More specifically, Amazon has the best range of cheap board games right now and that includes the ever-popular Disney Villainous. This ode to the bad guys has dropped in price to $29.93 (opens in new tab) instead of $40. As we mentioned in our feature on why you should play it (opens in new tab), it's an excellent strategy game with unique and dastardly gameplay, gorgeous artwork, and great theming (it's genuinely one of the prettiest board games I've played, right down to its intricate movers). However, don't think it's just for children. If anything, it's a board game for adults (opens in new tab) because it's a more layered and strategic experience than you'd think. There are a few Disney Villainous expansions (opens in new tab) to enjoy once you've mastered the main game, too.

At the other end of the scale, horror epic Betrayal at House on the Hill (opens in new tab) has tumbled to $29.49 at Walmart (opens in new tab) instead of $50. That's a bargain for such an engaging, replayable game. As we mentioned in our review, it'll give you more than a few stories you'll be recounting with your friends for weeks to come.

Meanwhile, the classic Catan is also a good choice - it's been at the top of many players' lists for years. It's now $42.48 for the standard version (opens in new tab) or $43 for a Star Trek equivalent (opens in new tab). Beyond that you'll also find a reduced Ticket to Ride Europe that's $39.97 (opens in new tab) instead of $50. 

As for 7 Wonders, it's a great resource management game that has you seeking dominance over rival cities by building one of the seven wonders of the world. It's just $41.28 (opens in new tab) at the moment, saving you $8 overall.

You can see the best of the rest below.
