* Not in the "Dungeons & Dragons Game" category

Excepting the ones from outside the D&D category, this lines up pretty well with the category rankings, excepting:
  • The DMG edges out the MM
  • Ravnica is ahead of the two adventures for 2018
  • Baldur's Gate is ahead of Saltmarsh
  • Rick and Morty is ahead of Acquisitions Inc
  • 2021 completely reshuffles, again, with Ravenloft now on top
I also added the star rating, for reference - D&D books have on average 4.8 stars, the exceptions being:
  • 4.9 stars: core rulebooks, Volo's, Curse of Strahd, Xanathar's, Mordenkainen's, Wildemount
  • 4.7 stars: Starter Set, SCAG, Princes of the Apocalypse, Stranger Things, Acq Inc, Strixhaven
No 5.0 ratings, and nothing below 4.7.

Heretic of The Seventh Circle
It's a common assumption that's always proven wrong. It's not D&D fans plus MtG fans that picks these up, it's the subset of people who are fans of both.
Not really. Most people I know who bought the MtG setting books don’t play MtG. They picked them up to get more tools for a certain type of dnd game, or because they liked what they read about it online, or because of the art, or because they really wanted to play a centaur or whatever.


I crit!
