Re-Roll: This Week’s Tabletop Game News for Week 46 of 2018

Reading Time: 1 minute

Happy Gamesgiving!

The board game (and board game-related!) news that caught our attention for the week ending November 23, 2018.

Gaming News

A quick summary of this week’s board game news:

  • The big thing this week, of course, is board games on sale.
    • Miniatures Market started their sale last week, but it continues this week. They are also advertising so-called “MAPP amnesty,” where they are being allowed to sell products at prices much lower than manufacturers usually allow.
    • CSI has some great deals as well.
    • And of course, Amazon’s Black Friday deals include lots of temptation for us gamers.
  • Keyforge’s randomly-generated decks have generated some non-random concerns.
  • The most important news of the week, though, is that The Primary is now in the hands of its Kickstarter backers and can be pre-ordered for those who missed it. It’s hands-down my favorite game of the year, and so obviously our featured image this week.
