Give the Gift of Adventure
With this gift set and a handful of dice, a gamer has everything they need for a lifetime of Dungeons & Dragons role-playing.
In Dungeons & Dragons, a group of friends coauthor their own legend. They create characters and play their roles in a story, rolling dice and navigating maps as they unfold a tale as limitless as their imagination.
All the books they need to do so are in this gift set. Inside are foil cover editions of the three main Dungeons & Dragons books—the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual—plus a Dungeon Master’s Screen, also with foil treatment.
The Player’s Handbook is the essential reference for every Dungeons & Dragons roleplayer. It contains rules for character creation and advancement, backgrounds and skills, exploration and combat, equipment, spells, and much more.
Dungeon Master’s Guide
The Dungeon Master’s Guide teaches how to run D&D adventures for the other players how to give them monsters to fight, mysteries to solve, and fantasy worlds to explore.
The Monster Manual allows the Dungeon Master (the game’s narrator) to fill Dungeons & Dragons games with monsters—to populate the game with pesky goblins and mighty dragons for players to battle or beguile, outwit or outrun.
Dungeon Master’s Screen
The Dungeon Master’s Screen helps the Dungeon Master (the game’s narrator) keep die rolls and notes hidden from players. Plus, the inside is filled with at-a-glance references for the most relevant and commonly used in game information to help keep the game running smoothly.
An innovator in providing contemporary fantasy entertainment, Dungeons & Dragons is the wellspring for the entire modern game industry, digital as well as tabletop. Fifth edition D&D draws from every prior edition to create a universally compelling play experience, and exemplifies the true spirit of a game that holds captive the hearts and minds of millions of players worldwide. The core rulebook series consists of three books: the Player’s Handbook, the Monster Manual, and the Dungeon Master’s Guide.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The Player's Handbook occasionally suffered from some very slight blurring on some headings, aside from this I have found no issues.
The Dungeon Master's Guide was actually in very poor condition, the binding was flush with the bottom of the cover rather than being centred (this caused rubbing if inserted into the accompanying case or a bookshelf); the fabric spine of the book stuck out and was not secured at the bottom; headings suffer the same issue as the Player's Handbook; the book has a black stain on the bottom (most likely caused by rubbing against the case); the last few pages have been dented and the last-most page has a small tear; the cover has an indentation, it looks to have been caused by a price tag that was there previously.
The Monster Manual came in perfect condition and I have no issues with it.
The Dungeon Master's Screen was in acceptable condition, although there was some slight creasing in the paper layer at the foldable sections.
The slipcase was actually surprisingly useful. I almost always carry around my items to my D&D events so having the option to restrain them together is a great option to have. The carboard it's made of is also fairly stiff so it is also fairly protective.
EDIT: After a couple of month I have noticed that all the items are prone to two things; crumpling and rubbing.
The paper covers were all about half a centimeter off from the actual book, this caused it to easily and irreversibly crumple under light pressure.
The paper covers were also susceptible when rubbed against other objects (including the other items when placed inside of, and retrieved from the slipcase. This caused the items to gain several blurred and grey splotches scattered across them. I have markings from inside the slipcase from the books rubbing against it.

Nor do you get any special artwork found on limited edition printings. You do get foil copies of the normal covers. I can understand some folks being underwhelmed by these, but they are definitely better than the basic books I have held.
Print quality seems very good. Through out the books there is full color artwork. Tables and layout make this a very readable edition.
The box and screen also are of good quality. I expect them to last for a good while.
For good reviews of the information inside I suggest you reference the individual books. Many find 5E to be the best ever edition. I will let you judge for yourself.
Bottom line: Do you "need" this edition? Not really. But, this three book foil edition is a nice upgrade from the normal mass printing if you have a few extra dollars to treat yourself.
