As November draws to an end and the snow begins to fall in Canada, it's starting to feel like the beginning of the holidays. For many people, Christmas is all about spending time with friends and family, and there's nothing like a good game to get everybody into the holiday spirit! Luckily, an Amazon Canada sale on games and puzzles has landed, and it's here just in time for the holidays.\nNarcity may receive a small commission if you buy something from this article, which was created independently by Narcity's editorial team just for you.\nWhether you love getting into the Christmas spirit ASAP or you refuse to get festive until mid-December, board games and puzzles are a super traditional way to entertain your friends and family during the holidays.\nThat said, they can be pretty expensive to buy brand-new. The most popular ones can sometimes retail for nearly $70.\nThankfully, Amazon Canada has launched a brand-new sale as part of their early Black Friday sales, and select board games are now up to 40% off!\nWith everything from Space Cowboys Jaipur to Ticket to Ride and Catan, there's something for everyone.\nAll games and puzzles are listed as the "deal of the day," meaning they’re only going to be discounted for 24 hours.\nSo, if you find an awesome deal during this sale, don't wait, because it probably won't be around tomorrow!\nTo help you get the biggest savings possible, here are some of Amazon Canada’s best deals on right now.\nSpace Cowboys Jaipur - New Edition\nView this post on Instagram New game alert - we picked up #Jaipur yesterday from @travellingmanuk as we were after a light travel game for our trip to Scotland next month. In Jaipur, players are merchants vying to become the Maharajah’s personal trader by earning the most money. You do this by selling goods from your hand in exchange for tokens of diminishing value - with better deals rewarding you with bonus points. However, you must be careful, as taking a card from the market at the wrong time might make available something much more valuable for your opponent. The winner each round gain’s the Maharajah’s seal of excellence, and the first to get two of these wins the game. Not only are the components in Jaipur just beautiful (look at those cards!) it’s also a whole lot of fun. There’s a great tension each turn between taking more cards to build up a better deal, and selling what you have right away to stop your opponent getting the top most valuable tokens. You also have to be mindful of the market, as picking up that profitable fourth spice will mean a new card is drawn to replace it, which the other player will get the chance to take before you. You could instead exchange multiple goods or camels from your herd, stopping new cards from being drawn, but doing so risks breaking up a potentially valuable combo. It’s also crucial to remember that the player with the biggest camel herd gets five points at the end of each round - a fact that can (and has) swing the game. We’d definitely recommend Jaipur to anyone looking for a quick two-player experience with a surprising layer of strategy for something that comes in such a small box. Or just for anyone who really likes camels, because I swear there’s like 100 of the valueless creatures in this 50-card deck. #jaipurgame #boardgame #boardgames #boardgamenight #boardgamer #boardgamegeek #boardgamegeek #boardgamesofinstagram #cardgames #twoplayergame #twoplayergames A post shared by Adam & Gemma’s Game Nights In (@gemma_adamgames) on Jul 14, 2019 at 9:50am PDT\nOriginal Price: $29.99\nSale Price: $20.99\nWhy You Need It: Jaipur is a fast-paced card game that combines a blend of tactics, risk, and luck.
