Dungeons & Dragons Stranger Things Box



Tonight, my buddy AJ was the DM for the DnD Stranger things Box. AJ did a great job, but what bothered me is that the adventure in the box wasn't very strong. It works as a good, quick intro adventure for newbies, don't get me wrong. However, the original DnD 5E Starter was exceptionally good and provided a group I played in six months worth of campaign and we were a mixed party of newbies and veterans. 

I won't lie, I wanted something as good as the first 5E Starter. In fact, we deserve something that good, again.

I'm sad that more thought wasn't put into this adventure. I mean how many people picked this up and it's their first exposure to DnD? It's a missed opportunity.

I was really disappointed. As you said, the first Starter Box was great and provided months of gaming, this gave you a night. I do like the official Demogorgon and Upside Down stats and the minis, but they don't really do much for someone just learning to play.
