Earlier this month, pre-orders for the Rick and Morty Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set dropped to $17.99 (40% off) for one day before retreating back to 20%. Today, the 40% discount returned. Reserve a copy here on Amazon while the sale lasts. Note that you won’t be charged until the set ships on November 19th, and you’ll automatically get any additional discounts that occur during the pre-order period (if you’ve already pre-ordered, you’re covered). It is highly likely that this is the maximum discount, so lock it down while you can.
If you’re unfamiliar, Wizards of the Coast and Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty Dungeons & Dragons crossover adventure starter set was created by the same minds that brought us the Rick and Morty vs Dungeons & Dragons comics – Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles), Jim Zub (The Avengers, Wayward), and artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas). The set includes a 64-page rulebook annotated by Rick, a 32-page original adventure for levels 1–3, a 4-panel folding Dungeon Master screen featuring new art, 5 ready-to-play character sheets, and 11 dice.
On a related note, the Dungeons & Dragons Essentials Kit was recently released, and it might be the easiest way to get started with the game. Unlike the original Starter Set ($11.99 – 40% off), the Essentials Kit focuses on character creation, and the Dragon of Icespire Peak adventure that’s included in the kit introduces new “sidekick” rules that make it possible to play the game 1-on-1. In other words, you don’t need to organize a group of five or more players to start your adventures. One DM and one adventurer will do nicely, and the adventurer can use the sidekick rules to recruit townspeople, animals, and other creatures to join in on the quest.
At the time of writing, the Dungeons & Dragons Essentials Kit is available to order on Amazon for only $12.55, which is 50% off the list price and an all-time low. The kit includes everything you need to start your adventures: blank character sheets, dice, a 33″ × 8.5″ Dungeon Master’s screen, cards for magic items, a double-sided poster map for use with the Dragon of Icespire Peak adventure, a code for 50% the digital version of the Player’s Handbook, and access to supplementary content, including additional adventure materials to continue the story into higher levels of play.
