Dungeon Tiles Reincarnated

How very interesting - we bought a ton of those during 4E, but used them far less than I expected we would. So hard to separate and organize for quick grabbing. But man I loved the prettiness of 'em.

I'll probably pick up the tiles if they're still decent quality. The sets we had from 4e era got water damaged in a basement flood, so we've been using a wet erase Chessex battlemat like a bunch of peasants! The 4e dungeon tiles and even the Pathfinder tiles are all ludicrously expensive and PDFs are a pain (primarily when the printed output doesn't have consistent square sizes).

As a retailer, I can confirm it causes confusion. I have to display these products with some distance between them. It's a very frustrating decision.

Me too. The biggest issue I had was storage, and then once I did have a scene planned/set, how to place it on the table without it scattering to the four corners... sigh.

It always struck me that you need some of that blue-sticky-stuff whassicalled "Fun-Tak". You buld the thing and stick everything down.

I've picked all but the city set of these. Haven't had a chance to compare them to see if it's just reprints yet though...as there's a lot of sheets in there! Probably use them in a session or two coming up!

Let us know how you like them? Is 16 (well 32) really enough to be as flexible as you'd want?

My comic store guy talked me into buying a set of these last night. (And by talked me into, I mean, "Hey, we got these things in. Want one?") I'm going to see if they're any help for a game tomorrow.

I love dungeon tiles. They are useful, no matter what edition you are playing. My group plays 3rd edition, but we'll happily buy a new set of dungeon tiles.

I picked mine up opened them and was about to compare them to dmdavid.com's tile site since it has excellent photos but got called away to travel/work. If no one else posts pictures by next weekend, I'll snap a few.

I use these in conjunction with other terrain items, such as laying them inside rooms I created with mage knight 3D dungeon floors and walls. Looked great and had the players guessing with different things I placed around the room and walls.

What I really want is an overhead projector shining straight down on a white table, and then just use roll20 with their fog of war tool.

Our group had that exact set up but used it to just project the maps onto the white table. We used a whiteboard 7x4 on top that was could use wet erase markers on...neat set up that worked for 3 or 4 years for us. I know used FG to show the maps on a 42"tv on the table plus still using things like the aforementioned dungeon tiles and mage knight tiles, dungeon rise terraclips and such.

A much better deal this time around than in 2010 for the sets. Back then 10 double sided for $20, now 16 double sided for $25.
 
I just un-boxed mine yesterday! I'd report that there isn't anything "new" in reference to art or pieces. Seems as if they just recycled some of the more "popular" tiles for redistribution. There are 8 sheets of dungeon tiles and 8 sheets of cavern-like tiles. The one bright spot was the inclusion of circular tiles. There are about 2 sheets of these, enough to build 1 round room that would be roughly 12" x 12". I'm not disappointed, but would have preferred some new art.
