Well folks it’s time for a universally recognized and nationally celebrated holiday – Veteran’s Day! Thank you all for your sacrifice and duty, today we honor you.

But also, there’s also this thing being referred to as 11.11, which is slightly more up our retro handheld alley. Many of our favorite manufacturers, and maybe a few of our least favorite, are taking today as an opportunity to have their own kinda-sorta early Black Friday to take advantage of the start of Holiday shopping season. We’d like to try and help give you some guidance to some of our favorite deals, and see if we can give you a good starting point for checking out this sale. So join me as we go tumbling down this rabbit hole together.

Alright well hopefully that will get you off to a good start. I encourage you all to trawl a bit, as many of these sites can be fairly dense with products. You may just find a hidden gem down a back alley, or maybe just some cheap plastic junk. You’ll never know until you look.

Until next time, this is Retro Handhelds reminding you to stay hydrated, and have a lovely Veteran’s Day.
