Did someone just roll a natural 20? Because something wonderful has happened. The Dungeons & Dragons Core Rulebook Gift set is now (almost) half price on Amazon. You won’t have to depend on the basic rules PDF anymore, because with this collection, even a seasoned Dungeon Master can enhance their D&D setup. Usually priced at $169.95, it’s now only $87.23, saving you a whopping 49%.

If you’ve never played before, no problem, as this is a great way to get your adventure started. It’s a set that will appeal to those who have always wanted to try Dungeons & Dragons, as well as those who have been playing for years, but never got their own books. These beautiful foil editions would also give your game nights more gravitas than a much-loved but slightly tatty print-out, or a dog-eared original 5E rulebook.

As we approach the holiday season, you’re probably going to start thinking about presents for your friends and this could be an excellent gift idea for a fantasy fan. On top of that, the weather’s getting colder and you’re going to want more indoor activities. And with campaigns lasting anything from a few weeks to literal years, this could be the gift that keeps on giving?

In this set, you get three books:

  • Player’s Handbook: It contains all the rules of Dungeons & Dragons, encompassing character creation and a directory of hundreds of spells.
  • Dungeon Master’s Guide: If you’re looking to DM for the first time, this book will tell you everything you need to know, enabling you to weave together an exciting world for a great campaign.
  • Monster Manual: A Dungeons & Dragons bestiary, full of fantastical creatures and interesting characters. An endlessly inspiring pool for you to dip into whenever you’re crafting a new world.

That’s not all either. In addition to the books (which constitute all three of the core rulebooks), it comes with an attractively foiled DM screen to keep your cunningly devised traps and strategically placed orcs hidden from your players. It’s unclear how long they’re going to keep this deal going, so act fast if you’re keen to buy it.
