Have you ever wanted to find out what playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) is all about without having to buy it?  Here's your chance!
 
You can now borrow one of two role-playing sets for up to two months, giving you plenty of time to learn the rules of the game and complete an adventure.
 
The D&D Starter Set is perfect for beginners aged 12+, offering five pre-generated characters, rulebook, four sets of dice, and a full-fledged adventure that's been crafted for you.  Great for 3-5 players.
 
For those who are familiar with the game but want more freedom to create your own characters and adventure, the D&D Essentials Kit provides everything you need to know to get started, including an introductory adventure, Dungeon Master's screen, map, four sets of dice, and 81 cards for magic items and sidekicks. Ideal for 2-6 players aged 12+.
 
Stop by our Main Floor Desk to ask about our kits or take one home using your library card.
 
 
These kits are made possible through CARES Act funding to Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
