Splendor: Marvel is reduced to just $28, which is 44 percent off the original price. It’s essentially a reimagining of the original Splendor board game with the Marvel Universe.

Dixit’s latest update for 2021 is currently priced at $25, which is 36 percent off list price. This game is fantastic for parties as it seats three to eight players and is very lightweight. We’ve also found that it works for both kids and adults. In it, players take turns choosing one of 84 dreamy illustration cards and creating a story based on it. The rest must then choose a card that best fits that story. All the cards are shuffled, then they have to secretly vote on which card the narrator chose. The game is fun and fast, and the graphics are beautiful too.
