The best tabletop RPG deals this Black Friday
Dungeons & Dragons 5E isn’t the only pen-and-paper roleplaying game on the tabletop. There are endless inventive tabletop RPGs, from brilliantly original indie creations to roleplaying games that expand the settings of well-known universes like Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who and Judge Dredd.
This Black Friday, British roleplaying publisher Cubicle 7 has dropped the price of books for its The One Ring and Adventures in Middle-earth, its RPGs set in the Middle-earth world of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. We mention this in particular because it’s potentially the last time you’ll be able to get hold of the books at all, following the recent news that both games will come to an end in 2020.
