Want to try your hand and running a tabletop RPG with your friends? These starter sets have everything you need to get going.

'Dungeons & Dragons' Essentials Kit

D&D is certainly the best-known RPG system in the world, and the fifth edition is easy to love. Even if you've never adventured before, this kit will help everyone get right into the role-playing experience.

'Pathfinder' Beginner Box

Of course, D&D isn't the only fantasy RPG on the market. Pathfinder has done an incredible job of carving out its own niche, so the Beginner Box is an excellent alternative option.

'Star Wars: Edge of the Empire' Beginner Game

If your crew really loves Star Wars, here's your opportunity to tell your own story in this setting. If you were disappointed in 'Rise of Skywalker," making something cool with your buds is a great palate cleanser.

'Call of Cthulhu' Starter Set

Prefer an RPG that's a bit creepier? Try out some cosmic horror with your group. Explore dark mysteries with your crew, and create new, exciting nightmares together.
