As if the Fall Sales weren’t enough, I decided to see what were the sales for the Steam Winter Sale. My personal rule is to never buy anything unless it’s at least 50% off, and I think I got some pretty good steals. So let’s begin my haul overview.
JackBox Part Pack 3 + Fibbage XL + Drawful 2
I’ve played many a JackBox game in my time. I’ve played live demos at Cons and many rounds with friends. So I decided to get it for myself to play with my “real life” friends and my family. So far it’s been a hit over the holidays with my family.
I got the Party Pack 3 specifically because Quiplash is my favorite, and Guesspionage and Trivia Murder Party are also favorites personally. You can get Fibbage XL and Drawful 2 as individual games, and they are also a good time.
Reigns: Her Majesty
This game released in December of last year, so it’s a fresh game. I saw it going around on Twitch a little bit as well as one of my favorite creators Jesse Cox’s YouTube channel (a lot of the games I find are through him and his Fan Friday episodes). It seemed straightforward enough as a game, it’s in it’s simplest description a royalty simulator where you play as the queen. But, it definitely has some dark lore.
Burgle Bros + Paperback
I love me a board game, even a digital one. So I was skimming through the board game tag and this pack of games came up, with Burgle Bros and Paperback. In Burgle Bros, you assemble your Ocean’s 11-like team to plan and execute a robbery using stealth and puzzle solving. Paperback is a word game, where you work to finish your novel. Both seem like the interesting digital version of the original board games.
Another game found through the board game tag search, Unreal Estate is a city-building card game. You have to build a city with the building cards in your hands, but the city council can reject your plans.
Yes, ANOTHER game from the board game tag, Gremlins Inc. is an intense strategy board game in a steampunk world of corrupt capitalist gremlins who compete for money, political power and prestige. The art and concept brought me in, and we’ll see how intense the strategy is.
Elder Sign: Omens
This is one of the first games I picked up, as it’s been on my wishlist for a while. Based on the original Elder Sign board games, you control a team of agents who must investigate clues in order to prevent the ancient monster from coming.
Roller Coaster Tycoon Deluxe
Yes, this is the old Roller Coaster Tycoon from 2000, and yes I bought it. And I have played over 20 hours already. The nostalgia is strong, and it’s a great way to pass time and relax at the end of the day.
