    All about the tokens

    This D&D starter set is meant to start people out with the new 4th edition rule set and at that it does a decent job. If you really want to play this game (and play it to its full extent) your gaming group needs to invest in (at least) the three core 4th edition books and a sack-full of assorted dice. (and yes, sack-full is the scientific term)

    Priced at $17 though, this starter set really shines in value. It comes with the bare-bones basics (excuse my alliteration there) that you need to play D&D with a simplified version of the players handbook complete with some stock characters for your use, as well as a similarly lobotomized (in a good way) copy of the Dungeon Master's guide. Also included is a set of sturdy dice (d4-d20), a basic compilation of the dungeon tiles needed to create your play-space and a set of cardboard, punch-out tokens that can be used as placeholders for those groups who don't want to invest in the costly miniatures that are out there (the other starter set for 4th Edition comes with some minis, but its a limited selection that narrows your play a bit if you want to use 'em).

    The aforementioned punch-out tokens are really the only reason I bought this set (Having already geared myself up for playing as the Dungeon Master [okay, that came out weird]), because, like most geeks/nerds/gamers out there I simply can't afford EVERYTHING they put out for this game (At last count its over a dozen books at around $35 a pop as well as an equal number of premade Modules and uncounted numbers of minis booster packs.) But these tokens really sold me on this product. They're sturdy, double sided and can work as great placeholders when you need to swarm your players with a goblin-zombie horde. There are even some bigger tokens if your needs extend towards the more hulking beasts found in D&D (like a composite zombie-goblin flesh golem perhaps! [think voltron, only with dead goblin bodies!])

    All and all I'd fully recommended this product for any group wanting to start off their journeys in D&D or perhaps to those who just want to get a taste of the geek lifestyle. But for those who're looking for the true D&D experience I still recommend looking into getting the three core books which are probably linked somewhere close by this product.

    When the DM smiles, it's too late!

    I have a friend who was interested in D&D but couldn't comprehend the PHB well enough to feel comfortable playing with experienced players. I suggested that he purchase this product. He spent about 30 minutes reading the material and then we set up the campaign. A few buddies jumped in, and within an hour he understood well enough to play other campgaigns. I recommend this to anyone learning this game and, for the fact it comes with 50 tokens. To me, that was worth the price.

    Simply Outstanding!

    I bought this 3 months back during a camping trip I thought " why the hell not?" After i bought it i gathered a few people and we began to Read up the rules. 25 minutes later. we were playing Dungeons and dragons. it was epic. we had 5 players and one DM ( me.) and we had a blast. Everyone kept asking for more and more adventures and i kept giving them more and more adventures it was 3 hrs and almost 10 O clock when they had to go back home. Overall its amazeing!!

    The player handbook comes with 5 ready to play players. and it includes quick play rules.
    ---
    The DM handbook is packed with so much good knowledge it has 50 monsters ( or so...) and it has rules/trap discriptions/ and a redy to play quest. I highly reccomend this for newbies to the D&D series HIGHLY!!!!!!

    This is for Beginers

    The previous review slammed this product for being a simplified version of D&D. But that is exactly what is good about it. The whole purpose of this product is to make D&D accessable to beginers who may be intimidated and confused by the core rules books. Remember, even 1st & 2nd editions had "Advanced" and "Basic" games. I for one believe that this product revives in a great way the old Basic D&D boxed set. The hope is that new young gamers will put down their "Magic" cards and pick-up some dice. Then learning the full game will come in time.

    OK, so this is the "new" Dungeons and Dragons?

    If you wish for a game that middle schoolers (and possibly gradeschoolers) can get in a few minutes this is for you. When I read about what Wizards of the Coast was doing to D&D, I bought the 3.5 rules the minute I got to a game store. Wizards of the Coast decided to cut off all support for 3.5 in favor of this dumbed down version of Dungeons and Dragons. If you like to buy expensive miniatures, use cards and exgage in lots and lots of square based combat, this game is for you. I you want a ROLE playing game and not a ROLL playing game, this game is NOT for you. Gygax has GOT to be rolling his grave.
