Seems like you may not have played D&D tabletop game before?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dun...y_overview
The only items required to play the game are the rulebooks, a character sheet for each player, and a number of polyhedral dice. And of course the dice can be share by all players.

One person will be the Dungeon Master (DM) which pretty much like a story teller. The results of the party's choices and the overall storyline for the game are determined by the Dungeon Master (DM) according to the rules of the game and the DM's interpretation of those rules. The DM selects and describes the various non-player characters (NPCs) that the party encounters, the settings in which these interactions occur, and the outcomes of those encounters based on the players' choices and actions.

Only DM will need to read the Adventure Book (the story) and the rulebook. I guess non-DM player should also know the rules also but can always ask DM about it since the assumption is DM should know it or know how to find the rules since they are going to control the game based on the rules.

So for each non-DM player, all you need is a copy of character sheet which is provided in this set. This set has enough for a beginning Dungeon Master to start. But most likely DM will need the complete D&D player handbook also in case need to search for rule that is not in starter rulebook.

This set only come with a "starter rulebook" which may not be enough to resolve more complicated actions. The good thing is DM can made up any rule that is not in starter rulebook so I guess DM can just come up his/her own rule as it goes if they don't have the complete rulebook.

The problem is finding the players that has time and also interested to play D&D.

Seems like there are two most talk about Virtual Tabletop that people can play with each other online (which can be anywhere in the world). One is "Roll20" and the other is "Fantasy Grounds"
And looks like both have this starter set (Lost Mines of Phandelver) available as an additional content.

The good thing with Virtual Tabletop is can easily find and play with experience GM when playing online.

Good set. I used this with some new adventurers to get them familiar with D&D. Everything you need as a starter DM is also there as well.

Was $10.70 last year right before Christmas but still not a bad price for the intro set to D&D 5th edition.

I'm interested in D&D. Played it once and ever since I've been wanting to have one set. Does this include a map? I'm not too knowledgeable about this.

Everyone can use the same kit but you may need to photocopy the character sheet. There are also blank sheets and pre-made sheets on the D&D website.

For player, "Roll20" Virtual Tabletop is mostly free if don't need the extra feature.
And can signup for a free online account and find a group that play this starter set (Lost Mines of Phandelver) online at the time that you are available and join them.

Example of how the Lost Mines of Phandelver Roll20 game would looks like
(Spoiler for people haven't played this starter set yet since it contain the map/story of Lost Mines of Phandelver) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dduGRIsHpnM

Thank you. I had heard of D&D prior to 2016, but barely had an idea of what it is until I watched Netflix's Stranger Things (I think it was also mentioned in Big Bang Theory, but I only watched a bit of that show). I've since been wanting to read more about it, but keep forgetting about it. Your response was perfect for what I wanted to know.

Thank you,
Tofu Vic

To answer your question more directly, no. This kit is enough for the whole group.
