Hi all, sorry for the late post. I've mostly been playing Hearthstone, Resogun, and Knack. Not exactly tactics games, but it's good to have some variety sometimes. Believe it or not there's still tons of tactics game news every month, especially on smart phones. Hard to keep up sometimes.

Could you give some advice about which slitherine game available in the holiday sale should I buy ?

Battle Academy if you want an entry level tactics game, Panzer Corps if you want something heavier. Unity of Command is also fairly complex. I'm not really familiar with Field of Glory.

Also try they have the same games at different prices sometimes.
