  1. Nicky

    Came with everything shown. Everything I need to get started with D&D!

  2. Customer

    I bought the Starter first planning to play with 3 players. The Starter box is a barebones starting point and the adventure is designed for 5 adventurers. Going through the directions and researching online, I realized that there were many things missing from that set that would be helpful.

    This Essentials set makes up for everything that feels shorted in the Starter. You get full instructions for character creation, a full sized map of the area & town, side kick characters for 2 players, a DM Screen that is very helpful for the DM running the adventure. You also get some extra dice and tons of cards to represent items and quests in the game.

    Thankfully both the Starter and the Essential set take place in the same place, so everything in this Essentials set can be combined or reused in that adventure. One thing to note is that some reviews claim that the DM Screen is paper thin, but mine was actually cardboard. It is not thick cardboard, but it holds itself up fine.

    Exactly what I needed to bring some friends into the dnd fold

  4. DavidJG

    It is definitely well worth the price for what you get!

  5. Dale Gribble

    I love all that comes with this. Plus the art on D&D is amazing!

  6. William S Cooper

    Great present for my little brother! I had played with him a couple times before, but moved away and he didn’t know how to DM. This set came with a campaign and dice and everything! The perfect setup.

    Timely for the situation couldn’t weight to play

  8. Emilie

    Has everything needed to get a game going within minutes of opening the box.

    The dice are nice, and I’m a fan of the 4d6 and 2d20. The DM screen is just cardstock but it works fine,with all the usual stuff printed on it. Haven’t run the adventure yet but honestly it seems like a better one for new players than the one you get with the Starter Kit. And you should have enough with just this box to start playing immediately.

  10. Donald Feaster

    This is a great buy. Not only do you get a rule booklet, a campaign booklet, a map, and some dice, you also get a really beautiful DM screen and tons of game cards for spells, abilities, and initiative. This is a great way to get back into D&D if you haven’t played since 3.5 (like me) or if you’re introducing new players to the game. It’s an amazing value for everything you get. Best bang for your buck purchase I’ve seen in a long-ass time.

  11. Annie

    Some fun add on resources for 5th edition gameplay.
    As for the seller, Everything was exactly as described, and quickly handled.

  12. Bree73

    Great product! Very pleased. I think this is an even better starting adventure than the starter kit. And I thought the starter kit was good. The extra dnd beyond content puts it over the top.

  13. Kam Labyrinth

    Very cost effective. Decent adventure, not may races, classes or backgrounds. Would also need Player’s Handbook to really make it come together. Superior to Starter Kit.

  14. Ettelson

    I have never been a D&D fan but mu kids are loving it during quarantine. Playing for hours and acting out the scenes. Pretty entertaining to watch.

  15. JTP

    Great way to get my girls into D&D!
