$29 according to BoardGamePrices.com (27% discount on Amazon.com, lowest ever)
Set in a harsh future where only the strong survive, Arctic Scavengers pits the last remaining tribes of humanity against each other in a contest for survival.
Arctic Scavengers is a card game in the style of Dominion or Ascension, but with the player interaction turned up to 11. Send your people to scavenge for precious resources in the arctic wasteland, covered by sniper teams or perhaps wielding a precious hunting net… but your opponents want a slice of the snowy wastes just as much as you do.
This bundle comes with both the HQ and Recon expansions; the former adds extra win conditions and the ability to build structures and to recruit medics, while the latter provides a complete set of replacement cards for the original game that can be mixed and matched as you so desire.
With so much replayability and content crammed into one box, this is the definitive edition of a game that sparkles with genius. Check out this iconic review if you’re still on the fence, then come back and take advantage of this historically low price.
