Galaxy trucker and ticket to ride plus " Many more portable games
to chase away your board-om!"

No price as yet but they're usually very cheap.

This is a sneak peek, they sent the newsletter out early. The current mobile bundle is up for another 19 hours so that is the likely time frame for when this deal becomes active.

*edit: Just in case it's not clear these will be apps. You need to download the humble bundle app (free) and it will admin any apps you buy in future.

**edit: You no longer need to down the humble bundle app (thanks ThomasAH)

Just to clarify: You do not need the app, you can download everything via the web interface, too. But the app makes this very convenient.

HB negotiate with publishers for some games/software/media to give away, then you pay whatever you want for the bundle and choose how much goes to the publisher/HB/charity.
You can pay a dollar for the minimum bundle or if you pay more than the average, you'll get a few more items (N.B. The average rises the longer the bundle is running).
Typically, bundles end after 14 days.

I got that email too and eagerly hit the button, only to be greeted with a blank page.

I think I got all of them in their last board game bundle, but I'm curious to see if there's anything new.

Looks like they made an error and sent the newsletter out early.

Should be live tomorrow, if anyone hasn't used humble bundle before it has some really good offers/deals/bundles and a lot of the money goes to charities and you can even specify the split of the money.

There is a account page for past purchases for downloads or keys etc so quite easy to manage. They currently have a RPG book bundle if you want to check that out while waiting!

I assume this is going to be Android only?

The last time they did a bundle for boardgames, it was for android, windows and Mac - I remember picking it up and getting Ticket To Ride, Talisman and a few other things which I redeemed through Steam and play on my PC.

Hope it will work in the end.

If it is a mobile bundle the current one ends at 7pm GMT so I guess that would be when this one starts.

Yes the current one has 6.5 hrs to go. This one probably won't go live until then.

Thanks for that, maybe they've changed things since I bought my first Android app. I'm pretty sure back then you had to download their app (but then it was easy to find back then too).

A quick question for those who might know...

If I get the bundle but already have some of the games can I gift the ones I have to someone else and keep the ones I want?

For PC game bundles you get individual keys for each item in the bundle and can do what you wish with them, redeem some and give/trade others etc.

Yes - what usually happens is that in the claim page on Humble, you'll have the option to get keys for the games, which you can pass around if you're so inclined, or to generate a link that can be emailed to a friend that'll allow them to claim your key instead.

Also, there are trading groups on Steam where people will swap keys for things they already have/don't want for keys to other games, although I tend to just give my spare keys to friends I think will like the games.

These are apps not steam keys. I don't think they work the same.

Someone please clarify for me if these are board games or mobile games? The title of the thread is confusing.

Both! They're mobile app versions *of* board games.

I apologise if I confused anyone - the last time I bought a boardgames bundle on Humble, the games were all PC-compatible. This time, it looks like they're all Android games.
