Besides the books, power cards, and character sheets, the D&D Essentials comes with a one-page ad for other Essentials products, a card with a redemption code for another solo adventure (yay!) a two sided dungeon/wilderness map, and tokens for PCs and all the monsters in the DM book.
Each monster type comes with four tokens, identical except that they’re numbered 1 to 4. I’m seriously considering using tokens from now on, instead of minis, and it’s solely because they’re numbered. We always have a problem matching identical monster minis with their HPs. “Which hobgoblin did you hit?” “The one who is to the left of the hobgoblin who is next to the fighter.” We’ve tried putting numbered scraps of paper under the minis, but that’s cumbersome. We’ve tried replacing the minis with dice, with the pip number representing the monster number, but dice get rolled, and you do NOT want to roll some hobgoblins.
Each of the PC tokens can be flipped over to show a red-ringed Bloodied version of the PC. If you flip over the monster tokens, they just turn into different monsters. It would be nice if there were Bloodied versions of the monsters too, but if a goblin turns into a swarm of rats when bloodied, that will add an interesting new dimension to combat.
