Let's not beat around the bush here. Eight-Minute Empire is one of the best board games to come out on the App Store this year. And right now it's had a quid slashed from its asking price. That's not too shabby if you ask me.

The game sees you building your own empire in a short amount of time. You're competing with AI or other real-life players to make the best empire in the time allotted to you. Get the most victory points at the end of the game and you'll be crowned the winner.

You can click here to read our review of the game, but summing it up we called it "a bright and super smart board game adaptation that won't suck hours out of your day," and gave it a shiny Silver award.

If you'd like to take advantage of the sale, then you should click this link right here to head to the App Store and get the game this second.
