This movie set hasn’t dropped so low in price since, well, last Black Friday. Rather than waiting for commercial breaks to finish watching the series, or streaming from dubious sources on the internet, own the movies for yourself.

We at WIRED love this movie. In fact, it’s one of our favorites to watch this weekend.

Santorini Board Game for $15 ($15 off)

Amazon, Walmart

If your family plays board games around the holidays, you can add this one to your collection. The strategy-based game revolves around building a 3-story structure, and whoever does it first wins.
