Tabletop gaming tends to be a pretty geek-friendly pastime, so it's no surprise that there is a bunch of games out there that cater to fantasy and sci-fi nerds. After all, if you're into the obsessive world-building of Settlers of Catan, you're probably also into the obsessive world-building of George R. R. Martin and George Lucas. And for the month of April, Game of Thrones and Star Wars fans who are also into games of strategy are in luck: Walmart is having a big sale on games, including some fantastic titles based around the iconic franchises. Below are some of the best deals, which will last until the end of the month.

1. Game of Thrones Monopoly; $23 (Regularly $30)

Forget Park Place—in this version of the classic real estate game, you’re playing for Winterfell, the Cave of the Three-Eyed Raven, and other key places within the Game of Thrones universe. You’ll accumulate Gold Dragons and Silver Stags to buy up holdfasts and castles, pledge your loyalty to one of the Great Houses, and try to outlast your fellow players.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.
