The Silver Edition will have a lower price point and have an open production run. Both can be pre-ordered now at www.beadleandgrimms.com/spelljammer with a release date targeted for October of this year.

Built around the newest adventure from Dungeons & Dragons, these products are a must-have for creating the ultimate tabletop experience.
“The Spelljammer campaign setting is such a unique opportunity to curate a box that feels different than anything we’ve ever done before. When the design team at Wizards shared their vision for a pulpy sci-fi space rock opera we immediately responded: we’re IN.” said Bill Rehor, Beadle & Grimm’s lead on Spelljammer: Adventures in Space Platinum and Silver Editions.
The Beadle & Grimm’s editions of Dungeons & Dragons’ Spelljammer: Adventures in Space will be available in two editions:
1. Platinum Edition: Limited Edition of only 1,000 – $499

The Platinum Edition is packed with exclusive items, including, but not limited to:
● A TUBE FULL OF MAPS
A hallmark of Beadle & Grimm’s boxed sets are the beautifully rendered battle maps and area maps, and the Spelljammer set will continue that tradition, including but not limited to battle maps of key spelljamming ships
● PRE-PAINTED WIZKIDS MINIATURES
Exclusively included in the Platinum Edition are 20 pre-painted miniatures specially selected from the Spelljammer: Adventures in Space series from WizKids. Curated by Beadle & Grimm’s, this set provides the DM with key monsters and NPCs included in this adventure.
● IN-WORLD PLAYER HANDOUTS
When the players receive a hand-written invitation, find a mysterious note, or discover a key written clue, the DM can actually hand these beautifully designed pieces to the player instead of simply reading them.

Each Platinum Edition will contain several expertly crafted key artifacts, including important objects the players are searching for, custom tokens for use as gameplay aids, and jewelry players can wear.

● BONUS ENCOUNTERS
Additional encounters created exclusively by Beadle & Grimm’s to take advantage of areas, elements or themes of this adventure, these short encounters can be dropped in by the DM to further immerse the players in the world and expand their game experience.
● SPELLJAMMER: ADVENTURES IN SPACE
The contents of the complete published books from Dungeons & Dragons are included in soft cover form, including sections designed exclusively for the players’ eyes.
● PLATINUM EDITION BOX
The most luxurious adventure set could only be delivered in the most luxurious box available. The Platinum Edition box is the perfect storage for all the unique elements for this adventure as well a necessary addition to any gamer’s shelf.
The Silver Edition is priced to appeal to a wider range of tabletop roleplayers and includes many, but not all, of the elements that come in the core Platinum Edition box, excluding minis and map tube. Fitting into a smaller box the Silver Edition includes fewer maps and artifacts, but it does include all the adventure booklets and bonus encounters, Encounter Cards, DM screen, and many of the original maps created exclusively for Beadle & Grimm’s. Previous Silver Editions include Ghosts of Saltmarsh, Descent Into Avernus, and Rime of the Frostmaiden.
“Spelljamming ship maps, space horrors, intergalactic political intrigue… I mean, what’s not to love?! Long-time Spelljammer fans, and those DMs new to the setting, are going to have a blast immersing their players in Wildspace,” adds Matthew Lillard, actor and co-founder of Beadle & Grimm’s.
