Ran my first DnD game last night. If anyone has never tried it I recommend the Starter Set. Its reasonably affordable and the pre-created characters in it do a decent job of explaining the character concepts to players. Though I would recommend you pick up at least some extra D20 dice if you want to have it with the group of 5 people. Otherwise I recommend having a computer handy to quickly look up different rules (that go beyond the provided rulebook).

      I also used these with using washers taped to the bottom (to prevent them from blowing around). Just a fairly cheap form of miniature. You can also use coins.
