You like sales, then this is the week for you. We've got a bevy of great options including a bunch of board games. Check it out and find something fun to play this weekend.
Handelabra's game of superheroes and villains is three years old and is celebrating with a sale. The base game is on sale for just a buck and the expansions are all discounted. This is a game with a great deal of content and hours to play, if you dig the superhero genre now might be the time to get in there. Read our review if you're not sure.
Codito Games (iOS Universal): $.99
Codito Games recently updated their entire catalog for iOS 11, that whole 64-bit thing. Now many of those same games are back on sale for just a buck.
- A Brief History of the World
- Le Havre
- Reiner Knizia's Ra
- Reiner Knizia's Tigris & Euphrates
- Reiner Knizia's Medici
Adventure board game Tokaido is more about the journey than the destination. The digital recreation has left a lot to be desired but hey, it's on sale!
Fantastic card-drafting, civilization-building game Age of Rivals just got a content expansion—more on that in Out Now in a bit!—and is on sale to celebrate. Pick up this game-of-the-year contender for two bucks.
Demon's Rise (Android): $1.99/$1.49
Wave Light Game's excellent tactical fantasy RPG is back on sale on the Google Play Store. If you don't have this one pick it up now and give it a shot. It's been updated in the years since its release to get all the new goodies of the sequel so it stands up well. At the time of publication, DR1 seems to have disappeared from the iOS store. Nick's original draft stated that the iOS version was on sale too -ED
Bottom of the 9th (iOS Universal): $3.99
This fun and compelling dice game plays out the critical half inning of a baseball game between a massive payroll mega-team and a scrappy underdog looking to squeak out a win at home. It's very well done and a buck off right now, in the heart of the MLB playoffs.
Steamworld Heist (iOS Universal): $4.99
One of the biggest and most fun games of 2016, this one earned four well-deserved stars from JP. It is on the higher end in term of iOS price tags at $10, but is on sale for half off right now. If you were holding out on this one go get it!
Planescape Torment (iOS Universal): $6.99
Classic post-apocalyptic RPG Planescape Torment got a special "enhanced edition" back in April for both iOS and Android, among other platforms. This edition includes remastered music and updated graphics and user interface. Now it's on sale for the first time for $3 off, although not on Android.
That's all for this week's sales round-up. Let us know if you spot anything else in the comments, otherwise enjoy your weekend!
