I ordered a pair of Wyrmood's "Homevrew collection" of made-at-home-during-covid-19 series of dice vaults. So $101-$200.

Oops, I misread the title as gaming product, skipping over the RPG part & said 1k+.

That 1k+ purchase was an extremely large, extremely well painted, army for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. I have used parts of it for D&D over the years if that counts....
 

I just spent about a 100 bucks on 3 books for third edition, which are in perfect condition. One of the books I tried to get was ironically Oriental Adventures (topical!), but someone else already bought it. :LOL:

I've also spent about 200 bucks buying minis in bulk.

The slip-cased set of D&D4e PH, MM and DMG. I think it was about £70. It was one of my biggest disappointments: I was about 20 pages in when I realised I really didn't want to play this game. I gave it away.
My experience exactly. Only I paid in euros, and had to wait an extra 3 weeks because shipping was delayed.

Single costliest RPG thing I've ever bought was City State of the World Emperor maybe ten years ago, set me back a bit over $100 US (about $130 Cdn at the time).

But I shudder to think how much all the "lesser" purchases - books, minis, adventure modules, etc. - add up to. :)

A full case of minis of season 7 and I still had to buy on the secondary market to get all the minis. I think that was $400. Books are over $50 here with tax.

Woa, that sounds like a treasure trove of minis. Got a picture by any chance?
 

I know Ive spent quite a bit on some out of print boxed sets, books and minis over the years but nothing over $100 USD that I can recall. As far as I can remember brand new single product was the original Ptolus in 2006.
 

Beadle and Grimm's Silver edition of Ghosts of Saltmarsh would be the most I've ever spent on a single product. Runner-up would be the deluxe re-release of OD&D Wizards put out a few years ago.

I imagine with COVID lockdowns, we are seeing a lot more $100+ purchases from people who are buying the book packages on platforms like roll20 or D&Dbeyond.

Don't remember the exact price, but want to say $75 for the 1st printing of Deities and Demigods several years ago.

I backed the Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperboria 2e game at the PDF level (which was $15 IIRC), then after it was done realized just how foolish that was and spent another $100+ on a hardcopy of the book.

I spent $169 or so on the Altar Quest boardgame, which I feel counts mostly because I'm trying to fill my HeroQuest Jones with it.

But I feel I'm small potatoes in this crowd :)

If I set aside Miniature purchases (damn you Forgeworld!) then the most expensive single RPG book I've ever purchased would be the pre-release copy of Swords of the Serpentine I bought a couple of weeks ago. The book itself is reasonable for a hardback, but after shipping to the godforsaken place I live it was like $90 CDN. A small price to pay though, for what is currently my favorite game.
