Here at Polygon, we’re all about deals and horses, and we’re all out of horses. Thankfully, there are still plenty of awesome deals to check out this weekend, including discounts on Pokémon TCG box sets, and a free two-month subscription to Apple TV+.

Below we’ve included some of our favorite deals this week from the worlds of gaming, horses, and entertainment, along with some of the best selling products that have made an appearance on Polygon at some point.

The best gaming deals this week

Right now, Amazon is offering a $20 discount when you purchase $100 worth of eligible Pokémon TCG sets. This deal features several Collector’s and Elite Trainer Box sets, including Scarlet & Violet Paldea Evolved, and Shining Fates. Prices and contents for each box vary slightly, but each set includes a combination of booster packs, energy cards, card sleeves, and other essentials to get you playing right away (nuggies not included).

Celebrate sticking to the shadows with the Steam Stealth Fest. Through July 31, you can save on a number of titles that are all about being a deceptive little sneak. There are hundreds of discounted titles, but some of the highlights we’d recommend checking out include Hitman World of Assassination, Mark of the Ninja Remastered, and the Metal Gear parody Unmetal.

If you prefer the sun to the shade, the Epic Games Store is also offering some excellent deals as part of its summer sale through August 3. In addition to the advertised discounts on games, you’ll also get double rewards, giving you 10% back on any amount you spend at the Epic Store to apply to any future purchase. Even games that aren’t discounted will earn you 10% in rewards, including Payday 3.

Some of the titles we’d recommend checking out as part of this sale include System Shock, Kerbal Space Program 2, Lego 2K Drive, and Return to Monkey Island.

If you spent way too much time designing your own ship in Starfield, you might want to check out Kerbal Space Program 2. While it’s still in early access, the game offers an already amazing number of parts to build your own extrasolar vehicles including rovers, rockets, spaceplanes, and more.

Humble has made another excellent bundle, this time benefiting Active Minds, a nonprofit organization promoting mental health awareness and education for young adults. The Baldur’s Gate & Beyond Bundle lets you pick up eight classic D&D titles for just $12.

Even with the frankly staggering number of gaming deals and sales going on, there are still plenty of games you can pick up for the low, low price of absolutely free. Amazon Prime members can currently pick up Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition, Wytchwood, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and more for free, in addition to a number of in-game bonuses and cosmetic items for other titles.

However, if you’re going to pick up one free game to play over the weekend, I’d recommend heading over to the Epic Games Store, which currently has the Homeworld Remastered Collection available for free until August 3 at 11:00 a.m. EDT. This collection bundles the original releases of Homeworld and Homeworld 2 with their remastered versions, which feature graphical updates and a wealth of quality-of-life improvements.

To celebrate the release of the Stephen Curry documentary, Underrated, new and returning Apple TV+ subscribers can snag two months of the streaming service for free.
