Well, my sister and I got some rulebooks and the 4th edition starter set, and we tried it out today. (I considered buying the 5th edition one, but considering shipping fees and the month-long wait due to port congestion made me rethink the matter.)
We used a dice app, papers, and pens, and used the character sheets provided. It was a nice foray into the game, even though my sister and I died in our first encounter. (Oh, and the repeated going over of rules and pages was really rather headache-inducing at first.)
It would actually be cool to play this with more people. (Hint hint: roll20.net) I have once said that I wanted to be DM, but I realize that it would use a lot of brainpower and time to craft a game. Well, maybe I'll get there eventually.
