Bookish Gift Guide: RPG Edition

RPG (Role Playing Game) gamers love to lose themselves in fantastical worlds for hours at a time. In most cases, these people are just as imaginative and fun as their sessions. They’re itching to know what will happen next in their story, and they probably obsess over their games a lot more than they’d like to admit. You may or may not know the all details of these games, but what you do know is that you want to get something special this holiday season for your RPG-loving friend. There are lots of little things that gamers want, but it’s sometimes hard to justify spending the money on fun things.


Whether it’s Dungeons & DragonsFire Emblem, Pathfinder, Edge of the Empire, Shadowrun, Vampire, or you have no clue what your buddies are playing these days, these gifts are sure to please!

You’re not really a gamer without dice. Gamers need dice and most long-term gamers I know collect the things like crazy, especially pretty or unique ones. You can find unique and fancy dice at Shapeways and Awesome Dice or you can get custom ones from Chessex for a reasonable price!

Unique Dice Bags


In addition to needing dice, every player needs a sweet bag to hold them. NerdandNeedle from Etsy has some great options, like this Legend of Zelda Triforce Drawstring Bag or the Harry Potter Boy Wizard Drawstring Bag, both for $15.00



Miniatures are a great way to visually enhance the gaming experience. Not everyone uses them, but they’re pretty fun to have. Miniature Market is a great online source for them, but you might want to check and see what your loved one wants first.

Game Boxes


Elderwood Spellbook Game Boxes are as beautiful as they are customizable. Choose a color, wood, and design to make something personalized for that special gamer in your life. You can order yours at Elderwood Academy.

Nintendo 3DS XL & Fire Emblem Awakening


If you want to give the gift of unlimited portable RPG fun, then look no further than the Nintendo 3DS XL and Fire Emblem Awakening. Awakening is the crown jewel of the portable RPG games in the Nintendo 3DS library – you can read my full review of the game here. It is a must have and a must-play for any RPG fan!

Settlers of Catan

The Settlers of Catan

The Settlers of Catan has become a bit of a classic in the strategy genre of games. You play a small colony on an island and you need to keep your wits about you to gather resources and defeat the other occupants of the island.

Hopefully that gives you a few good gift ideas. If you have any other ideas, please leave them in the comments below to help out others!
