Dungeons and Dragons to Launch Stranger Things Starter Set in May
Hasbro announced today that Dungeons and Dragons would be launching a new starter set based on the popular Netflix show, Stranger Things. It makes sense, too, since Stranger Things and its 80s setting heavily references the game and is, perhaps, what introduced some players to the game in the first place.
In the show, a kid by the name of Mike Wheeler runs a game for four other heroes. This starting set is meant to emulate that and players will be able to take on roles like “Will the Wise” and “Dustin the Dwarf.” Fans of the show might also be expecting a Demogorgon to make an appearance at this point. Spoiler: it does.
The full set, which is due out on May 1, 2019, will retail for $24.99 and include an exclusive Stranger Things Adventure book, a rulebook, 5 character sheets based on the shot, 6 dice, and a paintable demogorgon figure.
