When will the D&D Black Friday deals start?

If there's anything we know for certain about D&D Black Friday deals, it's when they'll happen. The year's biggest sales event always takes place after Thanksgiving on the final Friday of November, so 2022's discounts will occur today, November 25

Savings aren't limited to this single day, though, with this year's deals popping up earlier. In addition, the reductions won't end at midnight, either. They'll roll on into the next week, at which point they become Cyber Monday savings.

Where will I find the best D&D Black Friday deals?

It may sound like a cop-out, but Amazon (opens in new tab) is your best bet during the Dungeons and Dragons Black Friday deals. It seems to get the most consistent discounts during the sales period (and long afterward, to be honest) so should be your first port of call if you're hunting down offers.

That said, it's worth keeping an eye on Walmart (opens in new tab) as well. It offers good deals that often go under the radar, so it's a prime candidate for savings during the Black Friday Dungeons and Dragons sale.

D&D Black Friday deals - what to expect

Even though you can bet on accessories like dice being slashed in price for this year's Black Friday Dungeons and Dragons sale, rulebooks and adventures tend to steal the spotlight. That's because they're often discounted by 50% or more, giving you an opportunity to build up a killer library for much less than normal.

But what will the 'best' offers be? Well, that'll depend on your level of experience with the game. For beginners, any saving on the Starter Set, Essentials Kit, Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, or Monster Manual should be at the top of your agenda - it's by far the best time to stock up on these. And because we've yet to see a Black Friday where they weren't discounted, you can count on a reduction.

Meanwhile, veterans should check out rules expansions like Tasha's Cauldron of Everything or Xanathar's Guide while they have the chance, not to mention chunkier adventures like Rime of the Frostmaiden. The former can really enhance your game with clever quality-of-life features, while the latter gets you dozens of hours of play.

Upcoming launches like the return to Dragonlance are likely to get a price cut

The reductions aren't limited to older books, though. If previous years are anything to go by, recent releases are also sure to fall in cost (namely, the horror-tinged Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft from early 2021 dropped by more than half last Black Friday). That means Spelljammer: Adventures in Space is probably going to be hit with a cut now that it's a few months old, and we anticipate Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel being in the same boat.

Even unreleased titles are in line for a saving. For instance, we'd put money on the upcoming return to Dragonlance being included in 2022's D&D Black Friday deals. Judging by 2021 (where something similar happened with Call of the Netherdeep), we can expect at least $5 / £5 off Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen.


Want to make sure you're ready for Christmas with awesome gifts? You should check out the Black Friday board game deals and Black Friday Pokemon card deals. It's worth checking in with the best Cyber Monday board game deals or the latest Cyber Monday Lego deals after Black Friday is over, too. Of course, we're also rounding up everything we expect to see in this year's Black Friday video game deals as well.
