A Sharp's King of Dragon Pass [$9.99], one of our favorite games about tribal politics, is now 30 percent off for the next three days. The headline gave it away, but A Sharp is doing this in celebration of selling 30,000 copies of the game on the App Store, which is a lot of shipped product for a niche game that usually sits at a very premium price of $9.99.

As we've covered in our extensive review, Dragon Pass is a deep and slow-paced strategy game where your choices actually mean something. Making a successful tribe is hard, but it's an ultimately rewarding task if you've got the patience and smarts.

Anyway, you can grab the game on the cheap for the next couple of days. If you've been wanting to play it on PC, you can swing over to GOG and grab it for $5.99. We like it on iPad the best, if you're wondering.

    Still my favorite iOS game. Wonderfully deep and engaging. Definitely not for everyone, but I thought it was a bargain even at $10 for the amount of time I put into it. Congrats to A Sharp!

      Might just do that…

    On SALE for 6.99? Wow

      Niche games like this often cost more since they're likely to be sold to fewer people. The trade-off is that people who are into a game that's entirely text & menus like those kinds of games enough to pay $10 for a really good one.

        Especially when it also includes award-winning art.

      • KenGriffeyIII

        I dunno what "award-winning" anything really means anymore but yeah the art really is fantastic. It's not even really necessary since the writing is so good it's easy to imagine these things happening in your head. It's kind of like a bonus to an already great game.

      Worth every penny at full price.

      I would rather pay $7 to have a complete game than half a game with microtransactions where spending $50+ won't even get you everything.

    Well, you should mention that iOS version is extended and still in development in terms of adding new content.

    I bought this when it first was released and try as I might, just couldn't get into it.

    Easily my favorite game on iOS. Incredibly deep and time consuming. I've probably sunk 100+ hours into this.

    I bought it a few weeks back after it was mentioned in a dev post for The Banner Saga. I've read the manual and cannot wait to get into the game. Just waiting on some spare time. Congrats to A Sharp for reaching this milestone!

    Very good game. I bought it at $10 and didn't even know what it was. Just saw the reviews and it was a game I would enjoy. I don't play that much now but once you start it's very entertaining. I never thought I would spend $10 in a phone game but I bought an itunes card for cheap, which ultimately got me to buy this game. All I can say is that it was well spent if anyone know some games like this please tell me!

    Waiting for a price cut 10:49 is too much
