Introduction & Disclaimer
- Someone who has heard of D&D but never played, and is intrigued by the Stranger Things connection.
- Someone who may have played many years ago and is thinking of trying D&D again after having watched Stranger Things.
- Someone not as familiar with Stranger Things, but heard of and recognized the D&D brand at a large chain (like a Target, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, etc).
- A D&D enthusiast who collects various books, sets, memorabilia, etc...
I've read and re-read the Stranger Things D&D Starter Set with the goal of the review in mind: Is this a good introduction for a new D&D player who was attracted by Stranger Things?
I will also compare and contrast the box contents against the original D&D Starter Set for 5th Edition. There will be some mild spoilers in this review and I will further warn the reader of any major spoilers this post may contain.
