This morning, Wizards Of The Coast officially put the D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Kit on sale for the public to purchase. This set was made to celebrate the fifth anniversary of 5th Edition, as well as 45 years of the game existing. The set will run you $300 if you wish to purchase it, which you can do here. No word yet as to when they will ship, but it’s a hell of a set if you’re a hardcore Dungeons & Dragons player.
It’s been five years since Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition launched, and the explosion of D&D’s popularity since then has been a wonder to behold! Now fans can celebrate D&D through the D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set, available directly from Wizards of the Coast. The set commemorates both #5yearsof5e AND forty-five years since D&D’s first publication in 1974. In honor of the original release year of Dungeons & Dragons, 1974 sets of this custom-crafted treasure will be available to the public for this special occasion.
“When the D&D team realized the sapphire is the traditional anniversary stone for both five years and forty-five years, and that adding a laboratory-created sapphire to a twenty-sided die wouldn’t jeopardize the integrity of a roll, we couldn’t pass up the chance to make something really cool to celebrate the milestones” said Nathan Stewart, VP of the D&D Franchise at Wizards of the Coast. “The team put together a fun product for our fans that includes art and newly updated stats for sapphire dragons, making these classic dragons ready for play in your next D&D session.”
