Holiday Gift Guide, Part 8 – 3 for 2 sale at Amazon!

Well, about a month ago, we (as a group) had a great idea to get a bunch of things written down and provide our readers with a nice gift giving list.  Welp, let’s just say that we didn’t get our you-know-what together…  So, instead of a big list, I have decided to just make some shorter posts with things that catch my eye (or things that I notice to be on sale).   As I make these impromptu posts, I will try to stick to things which can be delivered prior to Dec. 25 — this likely means that they are things in stock on Amazon Prime.  (All the Amazon links here are affiliate links, and the Opinionated Gamers may earn a commission if you buy from those links)

You know, some days you just want to share a good deal that you found.  This morning, I saw that there is a 3-for-2 sale (i.e. buy three things, get the cheapest one for free) at Amazon.  They don’t say how long it’s going to last, so if you’re interested, I wouldn’t sit too long on this.  Also, quantities appear to be limited on some of the games.

There are pages and pages and pages of games in this offer, and frankly, I haven’t found a good way to search.  But, after a good fifteen minutes of doomscrolling, I have picked out a number of games that might interest readers of our blog.  I have briefly categorized them below (and if the name of the game is highlighted, you can click on that to see our review) – so as you can see, while the list of games is quite varied, we are familiar with most of them and can definitely recommend them!
