The Force Awakens has created a place where new fans can hop on the Star Wars fan bus. And with gaming being more mainstream, that means more people interested in getting involved with the RPG opportunities that are out there. Fantasy Flight Games has made it very easy to get started with their Beginners Game Box that is coming out soon.
This set is designed to get you and your group of friends into the game as soon as possible. There are 8-page character bios for all of the pre-generated characters in the box. There's all the dice you'll need. There's a map of the galaxy (far, far away). And there's a book for the GM to lead you through the action which parallels the events in the movie.
The set is due to arrive at retailers early next month. So keep your eyes peeled.
