If you've never tried any of the various Paradox grand strategy games, but you have at least some passing interest in them, you're in luck as the latest Humble Bundle is full of some great examples. It features strategy games such as Crusader Kings 2, Europa Universalis 3 and Stellaris, as well as slightly different but still enjoyable games like Pillars of Eternity and Magicka 2.

You'll find the full list of games, as well as the tier they appear in, right below. Before you do so, it is worth mentioning that the bundle also includes a 10% off coupon for the Humble Monthly Bundle, something that might be of interest to you given that this month's featured game is Civilization 6. With that said, here's the list:

Pay $1 (about €0.81) to unlock:

Cities in Motion 2

Magicka 2

Majesty 2 Collection

Pay more than the average of $7.36 (about €5.96) to also unlock:

Crusader Kings II & The Old Gods DLC

Pillars of Eternity

Hearts of Iron III Collection

Europa Universalis III Complete

Pay $12 (about €9.72) or more to also unlock:


With most bundles I would recommend going for only the first tier or two, but with this one I honestly think it's worth grabbing all three. For $12 there is an absolute ton of playtime to be had here, and even if you're not a fan of grand strategy games I would say Pillars of Eternity and Magicka 2 alone are probably worth the asking price. And if you are a fan of grand strategy games, then you're probably going to get months and months of sleepless nights out of the ones here, so in that case I'd say it's 100% worth it.

Have fun, and here's the Stellaris trailer, just for good measure:
