RPGFan's Guide To Black Friday 2012
Because we all need to increase our gaming backlogs, amirite?!
11.22.12 - 4:02 AM

So it's almost Christmas shopping season and what better (and by better I mean worse) time to start than on Black Friday?! And this year, the outlets can hardly wait until you've digested your Thanksgiving dinner: Some US retailers, like Target and Wal-Mart, begin their sales Thursday night, while others start on Friday.

Like in previous years, we compiled a list of what's on sale that RPG fans might be interested in. This is just what's known and been advertised - there could still be some surprises on Black Friday (or Cyber Monday) itself.
