The board game (and board game-related!) news that caught our attention for the week ending November 23, 2018.
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.
Games we’ve reviewed this week here on GeekDad:
- Jonathan Liu reaped the rewards for Root.
- Simon Yule took a look at The ABCs of D&D and The 123s of D&D.
