Dungeons & Dragons’ newest starter set goes on sale Wednesday. Titled Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle, the title and pricing were originally unveiled by parent company Hasbro in February. The boxed set will be a Target exclusive until October 4.
Images show that it comes with an introductory rulebook, an adventure book for Dungeon Masters, a set of blue plastic dice, and some pre-generated character sheets.
The original 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set came with pretty much the same amount of stuff. It was released in 2014 and has a list price of $19.99. It’s currently going for just $13.29 on Amazon. Meanwhile, the excellent Dungeons & Dragons Essentials Kit is exactly that — essential for getting started with the game — with rules for sidekicks, a double-sided paper map, dice, and 81 cards for tracking magic items, conditions, and more. When that launched in September of 2019 it was priced at $24.99. You can find it now on Amazon for just $18.99.
