I can tell you're looking to lose this entire weekend to an endlessly-compulsive strategy game, so why not make it Civilization VI, the latest in the classic series, which is currently entirely free? Check out this offer and more in our roundup of the five best deals we found over the last 24 hours.

Top PC Game Deal
Sid Meier's Civilization VI for PC
Store: Epic Games Store
Price: free
Lowest By: $15
Expiration: May 28 Let Sean Bean's soothing voiceover guide you through the classic Civilization 5X gameplay – eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate, and eXtensive nights spent having one more go instead of sleeping like a responsible adult. This most recent instalment in the series (somehow already almost four years old) was called the "ultimate digital board game" by PC Gamer, and has benefited since from two massive expansion packs, which sadly aren't included here, but give you something to look forward to if you enjoy the base game.

Top Book Deal
"Punjabi Style Recipes" Kindle eBook
Store: Amazon
Price: Free
Lowest By: $3 It's almost a cliché to delve into baking sourdoughs by now – instead, take the plunge into delicious Indian cuisine, and make yourself a breakfast roti flatbread and watch the Instagram likes come pouring in (then slow, then turn into a vicious backlash over cultural appropriation). This free eBook has 30 recipes, including classic curries and samosas, as well as five dessert dishes.

Top iPad Deal
Apple iPad 10.2" 32GB WiFi Tablet (2019)
Store: Best Buy
Price: $249.99
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $29
Expiration: May 26 We all know what an iPad is and does, so once we establish that this is within a buck of this 32GB model's best-ever price, this basically takes care of itself. That lets me instead use this space to mention Scroll Down to Riker, thus restoring this roundup's natural balance of unnecessary and context-free The Next Generation references.

Top Phone Deal
Samsung Galaxy S10 128GB Android Smartphone
Store: Samsung
Price: from $340 w/ trade-in
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $410 If you're more of a Samsung person, you can still save big today by trading in your old phone towards their one-generation-removed flagship.
