Black Friday 2019 iOS & Android Sales29 Nov 2019 1
It’s that time of year again - the time of crazy deals, stupendous sales, and apparently something to do with Thanksgiving. As a Brit I don’t really understand that last part, but luckily the ‘cheap’ part of Black Friday has invaded the UK like a hostile virus, so we get to benefit from another sales event.
It makes Christmas shopping easier, that’s for sure.

Other General Alerts
The above is by no means a comprehensive list - some publishers/developers have got deals across their whole catalogue but we wanted to keep this list a little bit concise. For the sake of keeping you informed, however, here's a list of companies that are having sales so you know what else to look out for:
- Nomad Games (all of their Talisman releases)
- Asmodee Digital (A lot of their digital board games)
- HexWar Ltd (Pretty much all their games, although we've only highlighted one)
- Ironhide Game Studio (Kingdom Rush mainly, plus others)
- Acram Digital (Entire catalogue)
- Handelabra (Aeon's End has a small discount)
Remember, since Apple stopped their affiliate scheme (Google’s never had one) we don’t get any money for recommending these to you so go nuts.
Black Friday 2019 Hardware
It’s not something we really look at here on PT, but Hardware’s just as important to mobile gamers as consoles and PC parts are to our brethren in the rest of the gaming industry - we often have to pay a lot more! As an experiment this year, I’m going to list any hardware deals (probably tablets) I spot that seem good, or at least note-worthy.
Note: I’ll probably end up sending you to Amazon, since we’re affiliated and get some money if you buy.
iPad 10.2 Inch (2019) - $279/£299
I'm constantly looking at iPads, both new and second hand, because I think it'd be a good idea to invest in one eventually both for the work we do here but also for my daughter's development for she's old enough to warrant using a device like this. As such, when a deal turns up on one I definitely pay attention.
Heralded as one of the best tablets for its price-range, Apple's newest 10.2 inch iPad sports some decent specs and a solid design, and is currently available for $279/£299 via Amazon, which to me seems like a pretty good price for an apple device of this calibre. One potential drawback is the the cheapest model only has 32GB of storage, so it may not suit those who will be downloading lots of apps or planning to store a lot of media on it, but I suspect it'll suit everyone else fine.
The version we've linked is a Wi-Fi only model with 10 hours of battery life. There are options for a Wi-Fi + 4G as well as one with 128 GB storage.
