Starfinder: The Beginner’s Box Lands Today

3 Minute Read
Apr 28 2019

Get started with Starfinder, the science fantasy game of action, adventure, aliens, monsters, and dragons…in space. Now’s the perfect time to get in, the beginner’s box has arrived.

The wait is over–assuming you were waiting for the Starfinder Beginner Box, which you probably were considering you’re reading an article about it. But even if you hadn’t heard of it before, the Starfinder Beginner Box is sure to make a splash at your table. It’s the perfect way to check out Starfinder. Step into a world of science-fantasy action and adventure with just one box. Everything you need to get started playing, and we do mean everything, is inside: player rules, gamemaster rules, pawns for villains and heroes alike, a solo adventure, an intro adventure–everything you need and then some.

It’s an important step for Starfinder. This is a ‘run the game out of the box’ kit, and this is what Starfinder’s been needing for a while. The system is great–but it’s obscured a little behind perceived barriers to entry–things like learning a new system make it hard to drop in. But that’s where the Beginner Box has your back, friends.
