Under the insert was a small handbook of basic rules, very much like the one that came with the original 5th edition starter boxed set, only with Stranger Things illustrations, some examples of game play using Stranger Things characters, and a bestiary of normal D&D monsters except for the addition of the demogorgon (Stranger Things style, not classic D&D) and the thesselhydra.
Also included were a few pre-made character sheets that would match the ones in the show, and a module that ostensibly the one being played in the show. There is some mention of the Upside Down in the module though, so it's not too faithful to the idea of being the exact module played by the characters. The adventure is very basic and short, but it should make a good introduction to totally new players to D&D.
So it's really not a bad set for the price, but it's not the cool package of Stranger Things neatness that I had hoped for.
Oh, and the two demogorgon figures are soft plastic. One is unpainted and one is supposedly painted, but the only part I could see that was colored was some basic red inside the mouth. Otherwise the two figures were identical. Another disappointment.
The dice and the starter rules are nearly identical to the official D&D starter set items. The rulebook has some Stranger Things images and flavor, along with the additional monsters for the adventure, but other than that, it is the same as the other box.
The two miniatures are soft, bendable plastic. That okay... I guess, but if you wanted to paint them yourself I don't know how the paint would handle the fact that the plastic is so malleable. The "painted" figure is pretty much identical to the unpainted once, except the inside of the mouth is red. They are pretty cool moldings though. It is a shame they did not include a larger Thessalhydra mini for the price though.
The adventure itself is probably my biggest disappointment. It is straightforward, but the books is uninspired. The text is presented as pencil on lined school ruled paper as though handwritten by one of the ST characters, but that is all it is. There are 3 or 4 rudimentary maps, and 3-4 simple black and white drawings, but other than that almost no artwork. There are a couple of puzzles and riddles, and mostly just a straight forward adventure. Bizarrely, the monster stat blocks are not in the adventure book, but only in the appendix in the back of the rules, which doesn't make much since since you are likely to have the adventure book already open in front of you.
Overall pretty disappointed with the contents. I will try the adventure with a group in the next few weeks and may update the review then if they are really wowed. I'm not feeling it so much on first reading.
The two minis are made of a very soft rubber. The base is made of the same bendable soft rubber. The "painted" mini is barely painted and I have doubts on whether the un-painted mini can hold paint well due to how soft and bendable the material is.
Being marketed as a Start Box, I was expecting the same quality of adventure. This is not the case. The included adventure is made to mimic someone's hand written notes in a note book. In no place is it printed to look like a standard D&D adventure format. Very inconsistent with what has already been published. The basic rules and dice that are included are the best part of this box set. The dice are the same color as those found in the original 5e Starter Box.
In conclusion, I would not recommend this to someone looking to get into 5e D&D, get the original Start Box instead, which does a much better job at helping new DMs.
The Good – The box set contains a 50 page rule book, an fairly short adventure book, some pre-filled character sheets, some dice, and two figures of the Demogorgon. The figures are nice --- there is flavor test alluding to the world of Stranger Things scattered throughout.
The Bad – There is a serious deficiency of value in this box set. Overall there are less than 100 pages of rules and adventures. Hasbro provides the bare minimum in content. The adventure is short – even the flavor text says it is good for about an evening of play. Hasbro could have at least provided a map sheet for the two smallish maps the adventure contains. The actual connections to the show is minimal – you are playing an D&D adventure allegedly written by one of the characters. The only real connection to the show is that they plays D&D and Demogorgon was a major enemy.
The Conclusion – I was excited when I saw this starter set was coming out. After receiving it, I am not sure who this is made for. If you wanted insight into the world of Stranger Things, this starter sets fails to deliver on all counts. If you want to learn to play D&D, there isn’t enough content to justify its price tags. Ultimately, this is a cash grab. A complete disappointment.
