There are a variety of items that are either required, or simply nice to have when entering the tabletop gaming hobby. Most board games will provide the dice you need to play their games, but many people prefer to play wiht their own and RPGS and miniatures games expect you to purchase them on your own.
Along with this you need a good table to play on. This can be seen as a status symbol among gamers, having space at home to play is a sign of dedication and affluence. Many game stores will also provide table space for free, or for a fee, depending on the shop.
