Fans of Netflix’s Stranger Things, rejoice! Cos’ the home-brew Dungeons & Dragons game you seen Mike Wheeler and his friends played in the first episode is now a real life board game. Announced at the New York Toy Fair 2019, the Hasbro Stranger Things Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game Starter Set is based on “Hunt for the Thessalhydra” and it includes five Stranger Things character sheets, rulebook, six polyhedral dice, and perhaps more crucially for the Demogorgon-loving fans, it comes with two Demogorgon figures, one of which is paintable.
Official description tells that the set is suitable for both players who are new to Dungeons & Dragons and experienced players. If you are a fan of Stranger Things, you should have already seen this coming and come it did, as the set will be available starting April 22, 2019, but if you want one, we’d advice you to secure a copy by pre-ordering it on Amazon or Entertainment Earth for $24.99. Somehow, we have a feeling this is going a fast moving Stranger Things-themed product and so, if you really gotta have it, you better jump on the pre-order fast.
