Play Unplugged gives us a look inside the new starter set for D&D 5th edition.



From the post:

It’s finally here! Fans of Dungeons & Dragons have been waiting for what seems like ages for the first official release for 5th Edition, also known as D&D Next. Play Unplugged’s Enrico Nardini delves into Wizards of the Coast’s first new D&D product, The Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set.

    Yeesh, what a crap box design. It’s almost as if they were trying to hide the name of the game. Small red logo on green?

    Really…..thats what in the box…2 booklets….cheap blue dice and …. several character sheets……Next!!!

    I have played D&D for 30 years since the little white box…..have 1st 2nd and 3rd editions….this is very disappointing….glad i went paizo….since the start…..

    hoping some figures….miniatures would have been cool….the dice look retro from the red and blue box days……whats the hype of the dragons then….

    3rd was your symphony…….

    reminded me of 1st edition with a hemi under the hood
    this is a tricycle……

    Does anybody actually do critical reviews anymore?

    I’m going to say no, when reviews range from ‘pretty good’ to ‘really good’

    At least in the video game industry, I know reviewers are totally purchased by game companies.

    Play Unplugged is hardly the only one. But this boxed set looks like laminated pity. I wouldn’t want that for $20, and I can’t imagine anybody opening up that boxed set without being disappointed.

    Except for a game reviewer.
