Used this as my first time DM'ing, in a group with 3 never player before players.
Was PERFECT for both instances. It was an awesome lay out i found incredibly easy to run. Even helping out with rules, making allowances for newbes (including me in a way) and DMing, it was challenging and fun and gave them a perfect mix of problem solving, cause and effect, combat and RP.
Cannot recommend it enough for a simple 1 shot to ease into 5E, whether DMing or playing with new players
