So I got the Red Box yesterday...
I am actually pretty excited about the rest of the D&D Essentials boxed sets, but this one is of little use to me as a player. As a way to introduce a new player to the concept of the game, it is pretty cool. It introduces character creation through a choose-your-adventure type format; you run through the solo "adventure" in the player's book and by the end you have filled in your character sheet along the way and learned the basic concepts and vocabulary of D&D 4e. Haven't had the time to read the DM's book or the included adventure, but it was nice to get a box with dice, tokens, character sheets, et al. Thanks WOTC for the review material!
A more detailed review will be posted soon at the Eye of the Vortex.
