Remember the thrill of facing down a fearsome dragon, the satisfaction of a perfectly-executed plan, the camaraderie of your adventuring party? Ah, the cherished recollections of role-playing game Dungeons & Dragon…This year signifies a remarkable milestone for the role-playing game—five decades of epic adventures, from humble beginnings to a global phenomenon. To commemorate this golden anniversary, gaming publisher Wizards of the Coast has unveiled a treasure trove of goodies for fans of all levels.

 

LEGO® Builds Your Next Quest

The most talked-about item is undoubtedly the incredible 'LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragon: Red Dragon’s Tale' set. This isn't your average brick set! The massive 3,745 pieces fan-designed 'Red Dragon's Tale' set brings the iconic D&D experience to life with intricate details, fearsome foes (including a red dragon), and a customizable dungeon layout. It even includes six LEGO minifigures—an Orc Rogue, Gnome Fighter, Elf Wizard, and Dwarf Cleric, plus brick-built monsters—so you can build your party and conquer the dungeon! It's the perfect way to combine the creativity of LEGO with the thrill of D&D adventures.

 

Gear Up for Adventure (Beyond the Dice Bag)

But the celebration doesn't stop there! D&D fans can express their love for the game with a variety of cool merchandise. Show off your allegiance with the limited-edition D&D Converse collection featuring iconic characters and spells on classic Chuck Taylors.
