It’s the end of Gamescom week, which more than many weeks before it, has brought a batch of discounts and offers on everything from fancy new tech to pre-orders of upcoming games. Let’s take a look at this week’s best gaming deals, as found on the information superhighway.

As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.

Google Chromecast

I don’t think I’ve watched live television for at least seven years.

Not even a month after I mentioned Rick and Morty Monopoly being a thing, here we are again, staring at the latest thing that the marriage of pop culture and consumerism has birthed – Rick and Morty Clue. That’s Cluedo for everyone reading this outside of America, by the way. Either way, this is most definitely also a thing and it can be yours for 40 bucks via ThinkGeek.
