Several books for Dungeons & Dragons 5E, both physical and digital versions, are currently on sale.

Various rulebooks, sourcebooks and adventure books for the tabletop roleplaying game are available at a discounted price via Amazon US and D&D Beyond, the online platform that features a library of digital Dungeons & Dragons books and materials.

Currently on the US version of Amazon, several key books for D&D 5E are discounted – including the Dungeons & Dragons 5E Player’s Handbook,which players can get for almost half price at $26.10 (£20), rather than the usual $49.95 (£38.83). With the Player’s Handbook, players can learn how to create their D&D characters – choosing between the various classes and playable species, as well as equipment and spells – as well as how to play the TRPG itself.

Another key D&D book currently on sale at Amazon US is the D&D Dungeon Master’s Guide priced at $27.97 (£21.74) instead of $49.95 (£38.83) - which is the essential tool for people looking to run a campaign for the fantasy tabletop RPG. With the DM’s Guide, players can learn how to plan, organise and run a D&D 5E game: including devising story-beats, playing characters, making and using maps and managing combat encounters.

Other notable Dungeons & Dragons items featured in the current Amazon US sale is the D&D Essentials Kit – a boxed collection of everything a group needs to get started with Dungeons & Dragons, such as a rulebook, adventure and character sheets – now priced at $16.99 (£13.21) instead of $24.99 (£19.43), as well as more recent additions into the D&D catalogue such as the sourcebook Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons, currently available for $27.02 (£21.07) instead of $49.95 (£38.83), and Candlekeep Mysteries: a collection of short adventures priced at $24.05 (£18.70) rather than $49.95 (£38.83).
