Quick Take

Pretty good board game choices for this bundle, although I would have liked to see Catan and Ticket to Ride at lower levels than the ones they’re at now, as both are fairly entry-level board game titles. I am interested to see what other titles will be featured in the $3 tier, but there’s a good mix of titles people are familiar with, as well as some classic games people should enjoy.

What are your thoughts on this Humble Bundle? Do you think you’ll purchase some of the mobile board games, and if so which ones? Let us know in the comment section below.
