The really rather excellent Eight-Minute Empire is on sale right now for just £2.99 / $2.99.

So if you've not played the mobile adaptation of one of the most interesting empire-building games in recent years, now would be the perfect time to go and pick it up.

The game is broken up into ten turns, and each playthrough really does last just a handful of minutes. But there's a lot crammed into that time space. Don't think that you're getting a shallow experience, because that's far from the case.

At review we gave the game a Silver Award and called Eight-Minute Empire "a bright and super smart board game adaptation that won't suck hours out of your day."
