If you’ve previously been frightened off by the price of Civilization 6 on Switch then a new deal over at Amazon US could be awfully tempting.

In a negotiation worthy of the best diplomats out there, Amazon has taken a huge 50% chunk off the full price so that you can get Civilization 6 for just $29.99 on Switch.

4X fans who have whiled away many hours on Sid Meier’s compelling mix of strategy, diplomacy, cultural growth and warfare will be fully aware of how enticing a version of Civ to take on the move can be.

As for this Switch version, it’s been received reasonably well. It’s worth pointing out that it is missing the expansions released for the PC so you’re going to be light on a few features if you’re coming from that edition. However, a number of additional civilisations and scenario packs are included. Online multiplayer is also not supported, but three others can join your games over a wireless LAN connection.

With all that time spent taking just one more turn, you’ll probably want to think about grabbing yourself an Anker PowerCore 20100 Nintendo Switch Edition for $61.88. That sale price at Amazon US is a little over 30% off the usual cost for this power bank. It’s a quality choice from a decent brand too and can refuel your Switch up to 2.5 times on a single charge.

Of course, even with the Switch branding, it still functions as a normal power bank for mobile charging and other uses.
