Amazon running 99-cent Kindle game special

Games are dominating the Kindle best seller list as Amazon has discounted several titles to 99 cents for a limited time (until March 27).

Amazon is discounting several Kindle games to 99 cents until March 27. Amazon

Not too long ago, I wrote about the rise of the 99-cent e-book. Now Amazon's pushing 99-cent Kindle games as part of a special sale.

Amazon lists 12 games as part of the sale and they're climbing the Kindle best seller's list fast. As David Cassel, the editor at the Me and My Kindle blog, points out, "Six of the 10 best-selling items in the Kindle store are now games." Mind you, some of these are merely discounted from $1.99 to 99 cents. But oh what a difference a dollar makes.

Here's the full list of specially discounted games. The offer ends March 27.

  • Scrabble
  • Chess
  • Sudoku Unbound
  • Solitaire
  • Mahjong Solitaire
  • Texas Hold 'Em
  • New York Times Crossword Puzzles (two sets of "easy" and two sets of "challenging" puzzles)
  • Hangman for Kids
  • Triple Town
