All of these are turn-based strategy games (TBS) and are acclaimed series on their own.

The Disciples series starts off at the dawn of a new age filled with strife. Of course, the usual cliché of having some age old prophecy will come to pass in this game’s story as well, and hence it does happen. However, the game is astonishingly well-balanced for its different races/factions. Each level-up is game-changing and a small group well trained troops can take on the enemy horde much larger than them with ease. The second game brought a long campaign and the same great gameplay to make a great series!

Guns! Cash! Insane Fun! The Jagged Alliance series is, for all its intensely action-centric game-covers, a very strategic game with its rewards. The first game, made way back in 94 is well made where every move you make has deadly (and frustrating) consequences. When Deadly Games released, the graphics were a big joke but the gameplay with its solid multiplayer component made for an inherently enjoyable experience. Jagged Alliance 2 dropped the top-down perspective for an isometric one and took on squad-based TBS to a great new level. For all I know, it’s still unrivalled.

So are you going to buy the Disciples and Jagged Alliance games for 50% off?
