Pathfinder's Beginner Box is an excellent introduction to RPG's and the Pathfinder RPG ruleset. I bought a copy at the beginning of december hoping to get a chance to play with my brothers and sisters over Christmas break. Long story short, I'm the nerdy older brother who brings home a new board-game whenever I go home. This game was by far the best success I've had from a whole huge list of board games I've brought home. The box contains everything you need to play (except for some wet or dry erase markers). Given the board-game elements and the very streamlined rules, it was very easy to introduce the game. The box also contains a really good starter dungeon. My siblings went off the side of the map, and I ended up slotting in a dungeon made by Chris Perkins (google DnD Robot Chicken) into that blank space. By the time they finished the dungeon, they managed to kill a whole tribe of goblins, fight their way through a small army of skeletons, and several giant spiders. They had a ton of loot, and ended by driving off a young Black Dragon. About half of them converted up to the full class options available in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Core Rulebook
, and we had a ton of fun. The rest of time over break, the perpetual question was "Pathfinder?"
