Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This starter set is 5 times better then the D&D 5e one, get it as you can use the maps and pawns for D&D 5e as well. That aside Pathfinder is a great game and worth playing as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Awesome I love this kit. You can use this as a stand alone game or use the items in this kit to enhance your Dungeons and Dragons game. Great graphics, well thought out, very nice starter kit, lots of characters and creatures (on chip board cut outs). Nice dungeon 2 sided map. I purchased it on sale, to enhance my Dungeons and Dragons game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for beginners If you're new to formal role-playing games, this set is absolutely perfect. The information is pitched to the beginner - this isn't one of those overwhelming tomes full of rules. Rather, the GM book is fairly thin, and the player books are more like pamphlets. The kit also includes cheat-sheets for the major classes to help guide players in filling out their character profiles. The set also comes with a table-top playing mat and a number of cut-out figures for characters and monsters. The set even includes all the dies you'll need to get started! So if you have a kid you want to introduce to table-top RPG playing, or if you're just getting into it yourself, this set is absolutely perfect. I also found the price very reasonable for the contents!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent starter box Great manuals, maps, and character folios inside. Includes dice and paper pawns. I use the GM book when I travel as it has great tables and GM info within.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I didn't know what to expect before trying Pathfinder. I love it and I'm hooked. It's a great game to play with the same people regularly so that you can develop and strengthen your characters evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Introduction to the RPG for beginners Beginners Box is a well made product all around.Paizo didnt spare expensive. The focus is rightly on the 4 core classes: Fighter,Mage,Rogue and Priest.It takes you step by step in creating a player character.The combat rules highlight the most crucial rules.The transition book is a nice addition,guiding new players into their journey beyond 5th level and into the Core Rulebook.I would really suggest players new to roleplaying and those not familiar with the Pathfinder system to get their feet wet first in this boxed set.Jumping into the Core book and the supplementary books can be overwhelming.For a new GM you will find the GM's guide helpful in designing your first Adventures and Campaign.The same goes for new or inexperienced GMs.Start with this set first and then move to the Core book.This boxed set gives players and GM's enough to play the game without drowning them in details.The dice are okay.You can get higher quality dice,but you don't really need them.The Character and Monster pawns give a nice 2 dimensional flat stand effect.More than enough to start off.Don't lose the bases! You get enough detail about each character class,without the full load of the Core book.Try playing each class,to get a feel for what suits you.Be advised that the Priest is a much more complex class,especially as fully detailed in the Core book.There are many more classes in the game,but they all are derived in some form from the 4 core classes.Simpler is often better.If you don't feel sure about your ability to play a class:start with Fighter.For new GMs start with small one off adventures(players really appreciate the ones you design) and gradually move to linked adventures and then a full campaign.Sandpoint is a good starter base for the party.In later adventures you may want to expand it or create your own.The Wilderness area around can be fleshed out as needed.This is a well made and well thought out product that I would really recommend to novice or inexperienced players and GMs.Even experienced gamers can find this a useful preview to the Pathfinder system.
