Gloomhaven has tumbled to a record low price in time for the Black Friday board game deals. This isn't a drill, people - the popular mega-adventure has fallen to just $84.99 at Amazon in the USA (down from $140) and £74.90 (was £140) via Amazon UK. That's a ridiculous discount for what is easily one of the best board games on the shelves right now.
However, you'll need to move quickly. Gloomhaven always sells out fast at this price, and we've literally never seen it cheaper than it is in today's Black Friday board game deals (it doesn't usually dip below $100 / £100). Plus, the offer ends today for US readers and on Sunday for UK gamers. If you miss it, you're probably not going to get another chance in 2021.
Want to avoid spending quite that much? It's worth noting that the smaller Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion game has also been reduced in the Black Friday board game deals. More specifically, this more affordable version is $31.99 instead of $49.99 at Amazon right now.

While Jaws of the Lion is fantastic, we would recommend considering the full-fat version of Gloomhaven if you can. As we mentioned in our Gloomhaven review, it's the best at it does; an intricate fantasy adventure that offers a storyline which builds on the consequences of your actions, it provides hundreds of hours of play. Because the sequel - Frosthaven - isn't going to be with us until 2022, this first instalment is still your best bet if you want an immersive tabletop experience (without resorting to the best tabletop RPGs or Dungeons and Dragons books, anyway).
It's worth considering the equally excellent Descent: Legends of the Dark, too. An RPG board game that introduces a companion app that dictates what happens next in the story, it's dropped by 17% to $145.18 on Amazon.
Unfortunately for our wallets, this is just the start of the Black Friday savings. Everything from strategy classics to family favorites have been slashed in cost, and hits like Twilight Imperium (a deeply tactical sci-fi epic) have fallen to $119.99 on Amazon from $165.
