The Cost of D&D
To say this game is meant to be accessible to everyone and require no more than dice, pen and paper, to do it properly is incredibly expensive!
I’m gonna be honest and not pretend that I haven’t been using a dodgy copy of the Players handbook, DM guide, etc for years, but today I decided to invest and actually buy the genuine articles (finally, a semi local shop that sells such things!)
The three core books (players, DM, monsters) set me back £120!!! That’s like $155! I was also planning on buying some official WotC miniatures but they were crazily expensive! No chance.
They are books of exquisite beauty but still… Ouch my wallet.
