When it comes to the Steam Deck, it's nice to be able to sit back, relax, and take my time with the games I play. A couple of genres perfectly fit this bill, and one of those is turn-based titles. So, when I see a sale that is filled with these titles that are great for portable play, I knew I had to check it out, and there are some amazing deals here!

The Turn-Based Thursday Fest is a sale on Steam that highlights current titles and upcoming ones, giving the genre a chance to shine. The fest, which started from a group of 5 volunteers, works to highlight awesome indie titles, which I couldn't be happier to see! So, with this in mind, I wanted to find some recommendations for games on sale, games that aren't, and upcoming games which I highly recommend checking out.

So, here are the games we recommend checking out as a Steam Deck owner:
