This Prime Day deal isn’t exactly the Bloodborne you’ve been waiting for, but it’s the one you’re getting. Bloodborne: The Board Game has weird monsters and weird weapons just like FromSoftware‘s action RPG. And, right now, it’s the only way to play Bloodborne on your “desktop.” (You know, like on your desk.)

In this tabletop version of a game everyone still desperately wants to come to PC, you (and up to four other players) take on the role of a hunter in the cursed city of Yharnam. There are secrets to find and grotesque beasts to fight, and it’s a race to cleanse the city before the Blood Moon rises. All the action happens via a complex combat deck that mirrors the game’s satisfying, transforming trick weapons.

Bloodborne: The Board Game typically costs around $87.99, but is on sale for $76.99 for Prime Day. It’s still more than a full-priced videogames, but it’s something you could potentially spend many hour-long sessions with, and you get miniatures

And while you’re on the board game hunt, you can pick up two of the best board games available now: Cosmic Encounter and Star Wars X-Wing. 

Cosmic Encounter, which is currently $21 off its usual price, is for anyone that wants to become an alien god and fight their friends. There are powers, like one where you get to swap your hand with another player, that intentionally break the game so that no game is the same.

Star Wars X-Wing is down to $33.24 for Prime Day and is a game for glorious sci-fi ship battles. It’s a miniatures game like Warhammer 40,000, but doesn’t take forever to play. It’s defining feature, the FlightPath system, has every player command their ships in secret and then forces everyone to reveal their calls at once. Strategy only goes so far if you can’t predict what your move your enemies will make next. The game’s clever rules and short play time make it one of our favorites.
