Love turn-based games? Well, now is your chance to stock up on a few and wishlist what might look to be some great upcoming games for you in the #TurnBasedFest on Steam.
Nowhere near as big as the Valve-run stuff directly, but these smaller events run by others are still a great way to discover some new favourites. The event runs until December 12th.
Valve still need to do better at promoting these smaller events. I often miss them completely, because they just don't actually show up anywhere on Steam that I look. Hopefully Valve will make them easier to find.
There's some absolute gems included that are on sale like:
