A new introductory boxed set for Dungeons & Dragons is on the near horizon and Target stores will carry the release exclusively for over two months. The Dungeons & Dragons Essentials Kit features a new starter rulebook as well as a fresh introductory adventure, Dragon of Icespire Peak, designed for character levels one to three. While it doesn’t appear dice are in the set it does look like there is a DM’s screen. The D&D Essentials Kit will carry an MSRP of $24.95 and be available at Target on June 24th and everywhere else on September 3rd.
From Wizards of the Coast:
UNLEASH YOUR IMAGINATION!
Everything you need to create characters and play the new adventures in this introduction to the world’s greatest roleplaying game.
Dungeons & Dragons is a cooperative storytelling game that harnesses your imagination and invites you to explore a fantastic world of adventure, where heroes battle monsters, find treasures, and overcome quests. The D&D Essentials Kit is a new introductory product meant to bring D&D to audiences interested in jumping into a fantasy story.
This box contains the essentials you need to run a D&D game with one Dungeon Master and one to five adventurers. A newly designed rulebook on-boards players by teaching them how to make characters, and the included adventure, Dragon of Icespire Peak, introduces a new 1-on-1 rules variant.
