A new season of Stranger Things isn’t the only special treat we’re getting from the 80’s nostalgic franchise this year – they’re about to release a Stranger Things Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.
The Stranger Things D&D Starter Set is reminiscent of the old version of the red-boxed game, but with two Demogorgan miniatures (one of which is left unpainted for you to customise). Just like the usual game, it’s got a slim manual, a handful of pre-made character sheets, an adventure for the Dungeon Master’s eyes only, and a set of polyhedral dice. If you’ve ever been to the Phandalin and back, you’ll know exactly what to expect.
The game’s got all the bells and whistles of the original D&D, with a small twist: the content itself is pulled straight from the opening scene of Stranger Things, where the boys play the game in Mike’s basement.
“Experience the D&D adventure Stranger Things character Mike Wheeler has created for his friends. Pick your character — will you be Will the Wise or Dustin the Dwarf? Get your fireballs ready as you investigate the mysterious castle and battle the ferocious Demogorgon. Prepare for just about anything, because the game just got stranger,” reads the official product description.
The Stranger Things D&D starter set is available for pre-order on Amazon now, and will be shipped May 1.
