Get the scoop on the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game from Wizards of the Coast and how fun it is to learn to play D&D!

It's December again but there's no new Lord of the Rings movie to fill movie theatres with elves, dwarves, orcs and heroic sword-swingin' fantasy action. But, there's Dungeons & Dragons - a game full of fantasy adventures, horrible monsters and heroes. The Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game is all about showing you how to play Dungeons & Dragons so you and your friends can kick orc butt. Here's the scoop.

The Basics of the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game

In the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game box you get a bunch of plastic monsters, weird dice, maps of dungeons and some books. The books tell you how to figure out if your brave fighter can thwack the goblin with his sword, what happens when the sorcerer casts a spell and the rest of the 411 on how to play the game. Plus, there's a beginner dungeon to get you started on adventuring.

Heroic Coolness in the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game

The trickiest thing about the Dungeons & Dragons game is learning how to play, but the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game explains everything so it's easy to get on with the monster bashing. The plastic monsters are cool too, especially cuz they're the same as the creatures from the Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures game so you can use all those monsters in this game.

The Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game's Ugly Monsters

Stomping orcs isn't easy and, even though the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game makes it pretty simple, there's some reading to do before you can play the game. Plus, if you dig the game and want to try the full Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game from Wizards of the Coast, there's even more to read.

Is the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game Good Fun?

If you're interested in role-playing games, but haven't played one before, it's a solid start on learning how to play Dungeons & Dragons. And, once you've learned D&D, there are a bajillion versions, including the Star Wars roleplaying game, that you can play!

  • Battle orcs, goblins and dragons as heroes!
  • Learn to play easily.
  • Cool plastic monsters!

    Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game Thumbs Down:
