Cheap board games at Target

I saw this deal on MoneySavingMom about some cheap board games, so I thought I’d give it a shot. It has been a long time since I’ve stacked coupons anywhere (a store coupon with a manufacturer’s). I printed the coupons Crystal linked to and decided which games I wanted:

Chutes & Ladders $1.79 ($3 off Target printable coupon, $3 off manufacturer’s printable coupon). A different design from when I was a kid. The classic is better (always!) but I can’t argue with less than $2 for a brand-new board game.
Operation: $16.99 regular price, $3 off Target coupon, $5 off manufacturer’s printable making it $9. Batteries Not Included (4 AAA needed).

This game is updated from the version I had as a kid. Wacky sound effects, including some bathroom noises. Several modes of play. Silly. Johnny had fun tweezing the ailments out of the guy, and making the buzzer and sounds go off. Didn’t have the heart to tell him to not make the sound — that can come later.

Simon Flash: $15 -$5 manufacturer’s coupon -$3 Target coupon = $7. Haven’t tried this one yet. It’s for ages 8+ so I’m sure it will be a challenge for me.

Play-Doh Swirling Shake Shoppe: Regular $12, on sale for $9.99, used $3 off printable manufacturer’s coupon for final price of $6.99. There was a $3 Target coupon available for awhile but that’s gone. This set was a bit of a dud. Hard to get it to work. At least it came with 4 tubs of Play-Doh and some stampers, but overall I wouldn’t recommend this piece. Use the $3 off printable coupon for a 24-pack of Play-Doh instead.

I love board games, card games, and making up games as we go. We don’t have many for Johnny yet since he’s only 3, so I’m glad to be able to add some fun ones for cheap!

  1. I did the same deal for a friend of mine and her kids now have Battleship for 5.00, Chutes and Ladder (1.79) and Candyland (1.79). I got Scrabble Flash (5.00) and Monopoly Electronic Edition (5.00). Plus when you buy the the games that are 10.00 and over before coupons you get a free card game. Awesome deal!

  2. It’s nice to know that you can get them so inexpensively. Operation was fun!

  3. Those are some cheap deals! Wish we could get board games for that cheap in our country. (UK)
