If you hate free time and love to have an abnormal sleep schedule, you'll be glad to hear that the Stardock themed Humble Bundle has now arrived. As you might imagine given Stardock's involvement, the bundle is filled to the brim with all sorts of strategy and management games, everything from the excellent Sins of Solar Empire: Rebellion to the somewhat flawed Offworld Trading Company.

The bundle features a couple of games less than what is considered 'standard' at this point, but given their length and replayability I don't think that's going to be too big of a deal. And speaking of the games, here's the full list of them, as well as the tier they appear in:

Pay $1 (about €0.85) or more:

Sorcerer King: Rivals

Fallen Enchantress

The Political Machine 2016

The Corporate Machine

Pay more than the average of $8.17 (about €6.95) to also unlock:

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

Galactic Civilizations III

Fallen Enchantress Ultimate Edition

Pay $15 (about €12.76) or more to also unlock:

Offworld Trading Company

Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade Expansion Pack

Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation

This is one of those bundles where recommending a specific tier is incredibly difficult. If you're a fan of strategy games, especially those that allow you to go on a grand scale, then feel free to go for the highest tier as most of these games are enjoyable in their own unique way. You might end up disliking some of them as they do have serious flaws, but for $15 I'd say this is definitely worth the trouble.

If you want to be a bit conservative with your money, however, the second tier will do just fine as it offers a nice mix of strategy sub-genres. Have fun, and make sure to keep an eye on the clock or you're going to get yourself in trouble!
