I purchased the rules expansion set so that I finally had Tasha's and Xanathar's, not to mention the fantastic GM screen that came along with them, so technically, I got MotM. I would not have purchased it solo.

I'm curious about Radiant and Dragonlance, but not urgently so.

Everything but DragonLance.

I found Monsters of the Multiverse to be good on mechanics but really lacking on lore- it stripped out a bunch of the lore from the Volo's/MToF versions; Radiant Citadel to be very disappointing, with a bunch of anemic adventures without much meat on their bones and no real sense that any of them would be very challenging; Spelljammer to be, again, lacking, especially the adventure (or at least the first chunk of it, I didn't even finish reading past the halfway point, because it was so boring, uninspiring, and railroady); and Call of the Netherdeep to be pretty satisfying, but not great- I'd give it a B or B- grade. It didn't have the level of Far Realm connection I had been expecting, but it was the best of the bunch.

I'm not a fan of DL but I may still end up with it if it sounds like the wargame that is supposedly included is flexible enough and to my liking. I don't have a lot of interest in it otherwise.
 


I bought Monsters of the Multiverse purely for the updated PC races, though it was a bit of an impulse buy long after release. Bought Spelljammer on day one, and found it sadly lacking in meat. I don't normally buy adventures, but I'm going to pick up Dragonlance when it comes out in print next week, because I have a big ol' soft spot for the setting and I'm thinking about trying to start up another group to run it.

None. Interested in Radiant Citadel, but I’m not currently DMing and there’s more chance that I’ll get to be a player in those adventures than that I’ll run them.

I'm going to buy Dragonlance because they have convinced me it's worth the money, which I sadly cannot say for anything else they've put out this year.

For perspective, I've bought three WotC books (including Dragonlance next week) and backed thirteen 5th-ed-based RPG kickstarters this year (and there's another two, possibly three, that I'll probably back before the end of the year). And most of the kickstarters are pushing double the price or more of a typical WotC hardback release once shipping etc is included.

Bought Mord's and will be buying DL. None of the others interested me at all. I do have nostalgic feelings for DL, which is why I will purchase it, but I doubt it will actually see much use with my group.

I bought Mordenkainen's thinking I would use it but there it sits basically unopened on my shelf. Granted, if I had also bought theFantasy grounds version it might have seen more use but I am tired of buying stuff two or three times.

Thats a lot of likely large books.

Shockingly, I have not purchased any of the books this year. I kept up for the most part up until recently. I will be skipping DL too.

I think part of this is I am waiting for D&D1 to drop officially. I might pick up an adventure in the meantime.

Considering the ongoing success of the main 3 books, I was looking at things which are supplemental to that. Not sure if I misunderstood what the starter boxed set was though?

I don't think you should have skipped the starter. It has its own adventure, and therefore is a supplemental product like any other. Sure, us "hardcore" D&D-players have less use for it than we do other products (generally), but it's still a pretty major product. (For example, I sold more of them at my FLGS than I did of Netherdeep, and the new starter is still relatively young!

Ah my bad, I'll add it!
 

Skipped Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse because I already have the original books they draw from and the accompanying monster card sets. Further, from perusing reviews I don't particularly care for most of the changes they make, especially not enough to stop using the monster statblock cards I have.

I know there as been a lot of Doom and Gloom about D&D products on these boards, but I didn't even realize until this poll that I had my most active purchasing year of 5e! I bought everything except the CR product and I even purchased 2 starter sets for presents! I don't think I have every spent so much on D&D in one year (and that is not including the WizKids Tiamat I gifted myself).
