Online giant Amazon is back with its second massive sales event of the year. Prime Early Access Sale 2022 is brand new for this year, and is effectively the retailer’s follow-up to its Prime Day event which took place over the summer.

Like Prime Day, the Prime Early Access Sale will see hundreds of products discounted for a limited time. Also like Prime Day, the event is only available to Amazon Prime members - but you can grab a free 30-day trial if you’re not already signed up.

Among the Prime Early Access deals and offers are board games and other tabletop products such as Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon cards, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back as we keep it updated with the best Prime Early Access board game deals for 2022.
