No pardoning that bird

Sales to choke down with your turkey

While App Store sales and Uncle Ed getting hammered on blackberry brandy then clumsily groping Aunt Elle in front of you and your cousins are both expected on Thanksgiving Day, only one of them will require years of therapy to unravel. We’re going to focus on the one that doesn’t require professional help: sales. Click beyond to see all that we’ve found on the App Store and Steam this holiday weekend. I’m sure we’ve missed a bunch, but there’s a therapy session we need to attend.

Hopefully you find something worth picking up, and if I missed a sale you’re aware of, please post it in the comments so others can jump on it as well. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone, and I’ll see you back here on Monday.

Asmodee Digital

Asmodee isn’t having a sale on the App Store this weekend, but they are putting a few of their Steam apps on sale.

Acram Digital

These apps won’t update or go on sale until this Friday, but they’re pretty great deals so we’re lumping them in.

Roboto Games

Only one game, but it’s a doozy.


We’ve already mentioned a few Playdek titles, but they’re under the Asmodee Digital umbrella now up above. Two other Playdek titles that remain published by Playdek are on sale:

Button Mash Games

These guys have only put out two digital board games, but they’re both pretty great. They’re also on sale.

Tin Man Games

Thankfully, they didn’t put all their gamebooks on sale this year. I still have cramps from a few years ago and having to cut/paste links for all their apps.

Temple Gates Games

Sure, they’re the new kids on the block but they made quite an entrance:

Matrix Games

These are all either on Steam or Direct Downloads. Where there’s a Steam link, I’m only including that one.

Nomad Games

Sure, Asmodee has taken over publishing duties for Talisman and Smash Up, but Nomad has plenty on their own.

Czech Games Edition

No luck on getting Through the Ages any cheaper, but the excellent Galaxy Trucker will be going on sale starting Friday.

    I wonder if the Race for the Galaxy sale is the cause of their servers being offline since 2 days.

    It’s driving me crazy.

  2. Yomi is on sale for the first time ever for 50% off. Worth it? I seem to recall @rinelk being a big fan. I’m just not sure the iOS version survived the appocalypse …

  3. I cannot for the life of me get in to the game. It seems overly-complicated for what it is. I like the idea of decks that represent characters, each with unique play styles, but there are just way too many conditionals in the rules for me to care.

  4. Other than their most recent releases, pretty much the entire Matrix/Slitherine catalog is on sale. Also on sale on iOS:

    Friday (the solo card game) ($1.99)
    Sushi Go (not quite a Stately Play-level title, but a good “gateway” game) ($2.99)
    Mini Metro ($1.99)
    Demon’s Rise 2 ($0.99)
    Galaxy of Pen and Paper ($2.99)
    Monument Valley 2 ($2.99)

    And for those in the States, Target and Best Buy are selling the basic iPad (32GB) for $249.

    Thanks for taking the time out from Thanksgiving to make this great post- there were a few sales listed I wasn’t aware of.
    For those celebrating, Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Can’t recommend Friday enough. Definitely one of my favourite solo games.

    I liked it a lot, although it is a better cardboard game. Biggest killer for me was the sync only play, but the game definitely doesn’t lend itself to async.

  7. Man, Jade Empire needs to price drop. It was such an excellent game but I just don’t like plopping down ten bucks for one title, especially one I have played through several times in the past.

  8. Kolbex says:

    I have two of the physical decks, and I like it as a face to face game, but I have a hard time buying it as a good game against faceless internet strangers.

  9. Other Android sales:

    All Beamdog titles (Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment):

    Two titles (boardgames) from Queen Digital at $0.99:

    and some other apps:

    Warhammer Quest

    Galaxy Trucker

    Hero Generation

    King of Dragon Pass
