Okay for what it is but not really a "Starter Set".,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dungeons & Dragons Starter Box (D&d Boxed Game) (Misc. Supplies)
As a starter box this is inferior to the Pathfinder Beginner Box; as a game system I'm still in two minds; as a boxed fastplay scenario it seems pretty good. Whether its worth while all depends on how much you pay for it and what you want from it.
If all you want is to try out the new edition then its probably fine, if you actually want to start playing then I would advise that the free basic Rules from WotC's website are essentially and this box probably isn't, there are plenty of compatible scenarios that will probably cost you less.
If you already play and are looking to upgrade to the new edition, I would wait until the Core Rulebooks are all out and buy them instead.
