Every time I try to explain RPGs to uninitiated friends, I focus on the idea that it is “shared storytelling,” with a group of players getting together to help develop an epic tale of excitement and adventure. When I’ve had people interested in actually playing, I try to do my best to get them up to speed without letting them see the 300+ page rulebook, stacks of sourcebooks, and mountains of options for their characters. It would be nice to have everything a prospective player and group needs in one handy box, wouldn’t it? Enter the Starfinder Beginner Box from Paizo Publishing, which promises to bring new players into the world of their hit space-based role-playing game.
The Starfinder Beginner Box is a space fantasy roleplaying game for 2-6 players, and includes a scenario designed for solo play. The Starfinder Beginner Box plays best with 4-6 players.
