Getting deep into Dungeons & Dragons carries a substantial price tag. But today, the entry fee for getting some great books for the popular TTRPG is just a little bit lower. Altogether, the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual cost a total of $67.58, which is the lowest price we’ve seen yet for the collected volumes.

While you don’t technically need all three books to play D&D, these hardcover tomes cover everything you need to get your own campaign up and running. Each 5E volume normally costs $49.99, but you can currently pick up the Player’s Handbook for $26.10, the Dungeon Master’s Guide for $24.99, and the Monster Manual for $16.49, if you need just one of the trio.
