In D&D, you create characters and play their roles in a story. Choose from a halfling rogue, seeking revenge against a traitorous ally. An elven wizard, called to duty by the god of knowledge - altogether five characters are ready for adventure, and great models for future characters.
Explore The Lost Mine of Phandelver
The Dungeon Master is the game’s narrator and referee. You’ll play the roles of the monsters and villains your players encounter as they battle and plunder their way through Neverwinter in the The Lost Mine of Phandelver adventure.
Weave Legendary Stories
In D&D, the story is guided by your actions, and your actions are guided by the rules. Harnesses your imagination and invite your friends to explore a fantastic world of adventure, where heroes battle monsters, find treasures, and overcome quests.

5e comes with some pre-filled character sheets, an extremely basic rule book with no real explanation to anything other than when to take your turn and a campaign book you can play through to understand how DMing works. Once you've finished these two pamphlets you're on your own. Oh and you get some dice.
This set is adequate for players who are already familiar with D&D, but if you're already familiar you'd be better off spending your money on the Player Handbook (not included) and printing off some blank character sheets from the internet. The fact that you can't create your own character using anything in this starter box should be enough to point you towards something better.
The starter pack contains a few guided character sheets (which we are using for our first quests to get the hang of the rules), a DM playbook and rule book, and a set of nice navy marbled dice for the DM. The best part of the set is the pre-made quests: it allows the DM to get the hang of their role and start storytelling and embellishing whilst also giving some guidance and an end to the quest.
Me and 3 of my friends have played for a few hours each time and are finding the starter kit really helpful - though I also recommend printing or downloading the player rulebook guide that can be found on the DnD website (it's much more helpful for accurate magic rules and how to play as a magician/elf/etc.).
Really glad we bought this - hours of fun ahead!
My experience is two booklets and some character sheets in a box, several hours watching youtube video, rereading the booklets, trying to play the mission, getting stuck and then rereading the booklets, then going online to buy the 5e Dungeon Master book, and then watching more videos, and rereading the booklets - seriously, I think we got through three bottles of scotch on holiday trying to work out this cursed game. The amount of studying you need to do is on par with a level 6 undergraduate assignment. It'll take you a week to understand 'combat', and another week to understand 'weapons', and a month to work out 'resting'. Jesus! Find a dungeon master and learn from them instead - whoever came up with the idea of a 'starter box' for this turgid monstrosity of a game needs it inserting in their behind.
This box is padded out with a large card insert and contains only a stripped down rule book some character sheets that anyone could print off at home and a pack of generic cheapo dice, the sort you can buy for about two quid.
for 5gbp I could go to my local print shop and have a higher quality version of these rules printed on a pdf, buy more dice, and still have some change left over.
If you are looking to start D&D this box is more or less a con, and your better off looking up a PDF of the rules and printing a few character sheets untill you can afford the full books.
Having said that, after watching hours of tutorial videos on the side, I feel confident enough to play the story with friends. The story is well written and exciting so makes for hours of fun.
This really does come with everything you need (except enough dice, you can never have too many dice) & is excellent. I've role played for years, but never run a campaign & this really does give you everything you need to run one.
Can't recommend it enough
