Humble Classic

If you were previously subscribed to Humble Bundle before it became Humble Choice, you were grandfathered into this option, which lets you choose 10 games out of any Humble Choice bundle, which one more than premium.  I personally have this subscription.

I decided to exclude My Friend Pedro as I've played it before through Xbox Games Pass for PC, and also it's predecessor the flash game.

And of course, I will be opting out of choosing the Programming Puzzle game, as I did last month.

Humble Premium

This subscription level costs either $19.99 a month, or $179.99 a year (which equates to $14.99 a month)

It gives you the ability to choose 9 games out of each month's Humble Choice selection.

Biggest Savings

If you just want to go for the highest value and therefore the highest savings, these are the games that you should pick:

EXAPUNKS, 198X, and Etherborn are currently the lowest-priced on Steam.

The remaining games are currently worth ($280.90) altogether, so you would save ($260.91) or ($265.91) with the monthly or the yearly deal respectively.

Humble Basic

This subscription level costs either $14.99 USD a month, or $134.99 USD a year (which equates to $11.25 a month).
It gives you the ability to choose 3 games out of each month's Humble Choice selection.

Biggest Savings

If you just want to focus on savings, the games you would want to pick would be "Planet Coaster" (+DLC) and "F1 2019". The third game would be either "Battle Chasers: Nightwar" or "Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark" as both are currently the same price.

Either combination has a value of ($150.96), so you would save ($135.97) or ($139.71) with the monthly or the yearly deal respectively.

In Conclusion

So, that's the rundown for March's Humble Choice selections. I hope that I was able to provide some useful information once again  Lemme know what your choices were or would be!
