Fallout The Board Game is an overlooked gem from Fantasy Flight Games’ back catalog, and it’s on sale for Amazon’s Cyber Monday board game sale this year. It makes a great gift for fans of the series, as it leverages Bethesda’s penchant for telling interesting stories in the wastelands. Meanwhile, Target is running a rare buy two, get one free sale on mostly classic board games — but with a few key exceptions, including Star Wars Villainous.

Back at Amazon, Fast & Furious: Highway Heist is also on sale. It’s a sleeper hit from Funko’s crack team of designers, and it’s just as ridiculous as the movies with characters leaping between vehicles as the action careens down the endlessly unfolding roadway. I defy you to find more fun for $11.98 this holiday — a big drop from the launch price of $30.

For those new to modern board games, or looking for something active that everyone can enjoy throughout the holidays, look no further than Castle Panic’s new second edition printing. The “big box” edition bundles together all of the game’s best expansions for a stunningly low price of $76.53 (down from a launch price over $120).

We also have a few other pages you’ll want to check out to tick off your tabletop shopping list: D&D deals and Magic: The Gathering deals. For the Warhammer 40K fan in your life (even if it’s you), check out these impressive deals on Joytoy action figures.
