Summer time is almost here (okay, let’s all agree that it is here), so what better time to head inside and play some board games? Some of you might not be as board game focused as I am, as I’ll never turn down an opportunity to play some board games, but the summer is still a great time to get your game on, even if it is after a day out in the sun! What else are you going to do at the cabin (cottage for those east of Alberta), trailer, or even in your own home in the evening?

What’s that? You don’t have many games to play? Well, you’ve stumbled upon the perfect contest then, haven’t you? Best Buy’s Plug-in Blog is giving away oodles of top quality board games! Now, I’m not just saying they’re great games and then actually giving away board games based off of 1990s TV shows—no, these are legitimately awesome games.

Here are some examples of the great games you could be playing this summer

And then we throw in a couple of Monopoly games for the traditionalists (Han Solo Monopoly, and Game of Thrones Monopoly), an adults-only Trivial Pursuit game, and some party games (Speak Out and Fake News)! What more do you want? Oh, you want the rules on how to win? Right.


Entering to win one of these board games is simple, but you can only enter once. Leave a comment at the bottom of this article with the name of a game that you would love to try this summer and why.


At the end of the contest, we’ll choose 5 winners from all eligible entries. Each winner will win one of 5 board game prize packages (complete prize package descriptions are shown in the rules and regulations).

This contest runs from June 1st until June 18th.

Remember, you can only enter once. However, you can share this as many times, and with as many people, as you like. Challenge your friends to share too. Make a game of sharing this post, and you never know, someone in your social circle might win and invite you over for a fun summer game night.

Good Luck.

  3. Love to try Sushi Go Party because I have the smaller deck of Sushi Go and love it! So cute and easy to pick up to play.
