If you are a gamer then this holiday season is looking really good. The gaming companies are offering free games and big discounts to try and make this vacation a little more fun than last year. We’ve covered some of the great things on offer so far, but let’s take a look at even more fun things to keep us all happy over the holidays.
Let’s start this new list with some amazing offerings from the aptly named Free League, a publisher and distributor of some of the newest and most advanced role-playing games on the planet.
This year, Free League is not kidding, with discounts of up to 50% on several of their award-winning tabletop role-playing games, including the incredible RPG ALIEN, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying, MÖRK BORG, Things from the Flood , Tales from the Loop, Forbidden lands, Symbaroum, Coriolis – The Third Horizon and Mutant: Year Zero.
According to the Free League, they’ve grabbed their magical swords and slashed the prices of an abundance of RPG base books and several add-ons. Here is a wonderful opportunity for players to go to places you haven’t yet dared to explore. A chance to travel to the 80s and 90s, walk around the post-apocalyptic zone, explore dark forests where strange creatures lurk in the shadows, walk in unknown lands brimming with magic or even to travel in the vastness of space where extraterrestrial things await your arrival.
The 50% discount applies to ALIEN – The Official Roleplaying Game, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying, MÖRK BORG – A doom metal album of a game, Forbidden Lands – Roleplaying in a Cursed World, Symbaroum – Roleplaying in a Wonderous World, Mutant: Year Zero – End of Days RPG, Tales From The Loop – 80s RPG That Never Was, Things from the Flood – 90s RPG That Never Was Summer and Coriolis – The Third Horizon – Role-playing game in the darkness between the stars
Fun games and games
The eternal bad boys of the game development industry, Running with Scissors, is celebrating over 20 years of games and controversy with major postage game discounts. They even offer a huge package of vacation fun on Postal Gear.
The Gorgeous Collector’s Edition includes a finely crafted Collector’s Edition box, Postal DVD XX, which includes all the games we made and a horrible one they didn’t, as well as the Postal Movie. They have also created a beautiful little art book that contains various postal artwork and photos from 20 years of RWS Magic. There is a POSTAL XX sticker, an RWS temporary tattoo and last but not least the official Krotchy Nut Rag. So enjoy it.
And if your interest is more in line with making a small bet to try and win some extra holiday money, or just to take a break from all that holiday shopping to play a few hands or spin reels of slot machines, then many of the best high quality casinos are happy to play with you this year. You’ll need to bring your own eggnog and luck, but the games are warmed up and ready to go.
Look, we can’t play games all the time. Sometimes we have to sleep, or maybe at least relax and watch movies. For that, Red Box has you covered this year with free vacation-themed movies as well as plenty of other movies to stream, rent, and enjoy.
The holiday fun so far includes:
- Holiday favorites at the booth: The Polar Express, Bad Moms Christmas, Office Christmas Party, Dr. Seuss’ Grinch and more!
