Digital versions of board games on sale (expires about 4 days from time of posting):
(This requires the Steam game platform.)

https://www.humblebundle.com/games/asmodee-play-with-friends

$1 (or more) gets all of the following:
Carcassonne*
Potion Explosion*
Patchwork*
King & Assassins
Small World 2
Love Letter

$10.23 [or so] (or more) adds:
Splendor and 2 expansions(*)
Mysterium
Twilight Struggle
2 Small World expansions
2 Carcassonne expansions

$12 (or more) adds:
Scythe
The "Lord of the Rings" Adventure Card Game
a Small World expansion
a Splendor expansion
2 Mysterium expansions
3 Carcassonne expansions

The ones with asterisks are ones I've personally played (physically, that is)
and would recommend (Splendor less highly than the others). Other notes:
You might not consider the art in Love Letter or Small World appropriate for your
household (and I haven't seen the LotR game's art). The same goes for the concept
of Mysterium, which is that one player is a ghost attempting to convey who murdered
them to the other players. Scythe, Twilight Struggle, and probably the LotR game
are far more complicated than the others.
If you find an in-game tutorial insufficient, you can probably find a video
explaining how to play on YouTube (the channel WatchItPlayed is good for this).

The Epic Games Store summer sale ends at 11 AM today. Some of the puzzle games on sale are:
Superliminal (uses forced perspective and optical illusion)
Kine (3D puzzles)
Manifold Garden (involves Escherian geometry or something)

Also, there's a giant-robot time-travel turn-based tactics roguelite called Into the Breach
(I bought it) and the not-for-children civilian-in-a-wartorn-city survival game This War of Mine.

They actually automatically refunded me for it. That was nice of them.
Currently free on EGS are a strategy game about building a railway empire and a
wander-around-Depression-era-America-hearing-stories thing (some kol isha on
the soundtrack depending on which part of the country you're in - I watched a
gameplay video of it a couple of years back).

The Epic Games Store is currently having a sale and giving away a different free game every day or so.
The sale includes a coupon for $10 that can be applied to any purchase of $15 or more and then comes back,
or in other words, you get $10 off any game you buy that's over $15. (I'm sitting this out;
I don't think I've played any of what I bought in the last sale other than Into the Breach.)
