Holiday Dungeons and Dragons Gift Guide 2019

What a huge year it was for D&D fans, as Wizards of the Coast had a mammoth amount of releases to celebrate the 45th year of Dungeons & Dragons in 2019. I think I managed to review most of these throughout the year with few exceptions. And in addition to the 45th anniversary of the world’s greatest role playing game, it was also the 5th anniversary of the 5th edition of the game. So lots of celebrations and a veritable goldmine for fans of the game.

If there is a tabletop gamer in your life, I bet you can find a little something for them from this list. Here’s the 2019 Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2019: Dungeons & Dragons Edition.

Dungeons & Dragons: Eberron: Rising from The Last War
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: November 19, 2019

Well met, adventurers! I hope this day finds you well. Our discussion today revolves around a world that has been around for well over a decade but has been revamped for the current incarnation of Dungeons & Dragons. I speak, of course, of Eberron: Rising From The Last War. A unique fan favorite, this release has a load of previously unavailable material for this current edition of the world’s greatest role playing game.

I am aware that there was an online supplement that introduced Eberron to the world of 5th Edition, but this tome is so much more. Whereas the other release was a constantly evolving set of documents, this new adventure book is all of that and more. If you will allow me a few minutes of your time, I will tell you all about it! This is most definitely not your standard fantasy setting, folks. Not by a long shot.

Box Set
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: November 19, 2019

Okay, folks. I just wanted to drop you a quick note about this new box set that Wizards of the Coast has put together with help from Adult Swim. It appears to be a hilarious take on the worlds greatest role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons. I present to you: Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty!

A perversion of all things D&D, this entry-level box set is Rick-diculously entertaining and twists things so much that even the most sullen player will be guffawing within minutes.

Release Date: October 22, 2019

Can you believe it has already been five years since the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons hit shelves all over the world? Not only has it become the most successful version of the world’s greatest role playing game, but it has become so inclusive that friends that never showed an interest prior are now playing the game. I’m looking at you, Lisa! This newest release, Tyranny Of Dragons, compiles the two original adventures, Hoard Of The Dragon Queen and The Rise Of Tiamat, into a single volume. I remember writing several articles back then about these upcoming releases from Wizards Of The Coast. You can journey back into the past and read one of them here. But there are some additions and changes that make this a worthy purchase; keep reading to find out what those are!

Dungeons & Dragons: Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: September 17, 2019

Well, what in the Nine Hells has Wizards Of The Coast released now, you might ask. Okay, so if you literally phrased it like that, then you pretty much answered your own question. Because the newest Dungeons & Dragons release is called Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus and it is all about making your way from one of the most notable cities on the prime Material plane to the first layer of the Nine Hells. This journey is obviously dangerous, but few understand exactly how perilous it can be!

Dungeons & Dragons: Essentials Kit
D&D Accessory
Boxed Set
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: June 24, 2019 (Target exclusive release) September 3, 2019 (worldwide release)

So, truthfully, this is less of a review and more of an alert. The Dungeons & Dragons Essentials Kit is effectively what it says it is, the essentials to play the game. Is it everything you will ever need? Probably not for most of us. But for the casual player, perhaps. Wizards Of The Coast seems to be doing everything they can to make the world’s greatest roleplaying game accessible to everyone. And for a game that has always been diverse, this inclusiveness is heartwarming.

Dungeons & Dragons: Monsters & Creatures
Dungeons & Dragons Young Adventurer’s Guides
Hardcover | Kindle
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: July 16, 2019

I am of the opinion that Wizards Of The Coast is doing something amazing these days. Access to Dungeons & Dragons was so restricted when I was growing up due to the stigma it held at the time. But now that everyone has (finally) realized that playing is not going to damn their souls, Wizards has opened the floodgates of marketing and has begun creating some amazing books for younger potential gamers. You may even have seen my review of the The A*B*Cs Of D&D and The 1*2*3s Of D&D that I wrote earlier this year. The newest releases are focusing on the intermediate age bracket with the Young Adventurer’s Guides, one of which is Monsters & Creatures. So let us discuss it, shall we?

Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors & Weapons
Dungeons & Dragons Young Adventurer’s Guides
Hardcover | Kindle
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: July 16, 2019

I can barely contain the excitement that this series causes me. The Young Adventurer’s Guides are aimed at the intermediate level readers and are definitive primers for the world’s greatest role playing game, Dungeons & Dragons. The book I am reviewing today, Warriors & Weapons, is geared towards character creation for these younger readers. These are more advanced than The A*B*Cs Of D&D and The 1*2*3s Of D&D, which I reviewed back in February, but are not quite at the level of the core rule books. That said, this book was quite informative and a fun little read. Allow me to elaborate!

“Well met, fellow adventurer!” says the odd-looking little human in front of you. “Are you tired of always risking life and limb in dark, dank dungeons with little return?

Well, my friends, you are in luck! Acquisitions Incorporated is a playbook for those adventurers who want to not only make their lives better financially, but also improve their home/work balance. Sound great? Well then, just keep listening, for it gets even better!

Dungeons & Dragons: Ghosts Of Saltmarsh
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: May 21, 2019

It was just yesterday that I was making pirate jokes and telling my wife she needed to get an eyepatch (full disclosure, she had allergy issues). But today I am all about the seafaring adventures detailed within Ghosts of Saltmarsh, sans pirate jokes. In fact, this compilation holds the keys to almost endless possibilities.

When we talk about Dungeons & Dragons we seldom think of anything on the high seas, but the modules have long been available for play. Dungeon Masters the world over have delighted in sending player characters to their doom, er, I mean on adventures.
