More and more Dungeons & Dragons groups are moving their weekly game online these days, but the physical books themselves are still best-sellers. That means there are always a lot of them in the warehouse for Amazon’s Prime Day sales, and this October Prime Day is no exception. What’s unusual, though, is just how many books are available at a good price. This is actually well more than was available in July, or during the holidays last year. The discounts even extend to D&D’s deadliest adventure of all time. Here’s our picks of what to look for, plus the complete list of all the titles on sale through Oct. 11.
D&D rulebook, starter set, and setting book deals
First, if you’re new to D&D you can’t go wrong with the Dungeons & Dragons Essentials Kit, which even after several years on the shelf remains our go-to solution for new players. Inside you’ll find dice, blank character sheets, a softcover rules reference document, and handy index cards — plus rules for sidekick characters that can help fill out a smaller party.

D&D adventure anthology deals
If you’d like a challenge for your group, snag a copy of Tales from the Yawning Portal. That’s where you’ll find the 5th edition remaster of The Tomb of Horrors, the deadliest dungeon in D&D history.
