This year has been a year I stocked up on strategy board games, playing with the boys a whole bunch, and even with my friends online when available. There are a ton of board game deals today (Prime Day) on Amazon, I’m sharing links below to some of my personal picks. Great to stock up for Shabbat, chagim, or future quarantining.
Most of these games are great for adults and older kids (my 1st and 5th graders are able to grasp the most complex of these games).
Note: if you don’t have Amazon and want to make purchases today for Prime Day, you can try the Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial here.
