#UnboxingDay ~ Numenera Starter Set from Monte Cook Games
Overall, the execution of what’s in the box is gorgeous, well-written, and targeted at the appropriate player level (knows what an RPG is but needs some hand-holding through the Numenera rules).  Comparing this starter box to recent boxes from Pendragon or Shadowrun or Runequest however, shows how incredibly limited this package is.  It’s basically a one-shot adventure with a few more rules references, but almost nothing in here to play more than just that single scenario. DCC does basically the same thing in a single book2 and for about 1/5 of the cost.  How ‘worth it’ this package is depends on how much you’re wanting to tackle the Numenera system, but in that case, just go grab the full book instead of this attractive-but-limited box.
