I saw this at a book store yesterday. Almost picked them up but hadn't heard anything yet? Anyone have these and have a positive or negative review of them?
Now that we finally got ours in at the office ( ) I've gotten to use them a few times and I've found they work fine without any covering, just like Dungeon Tiles. However, if you have a kind of slick surface on the table you're using, you might consider putting down a battlemat if you have one underneath. I found that doing so prevents your map from sliding around or getting broken apart as easily when people move their minis.Ki Ryn said:Someone who has used these tiles - are they rigid enough to use on their own or do they need a covering? I guess I'd toss my sheet of plexiglass overthem regardless, just so I could use the markers.
I'd figure they work as well as any of the various D&D tile packs would work together, if they are both set for the same size square (1 inch, which I believe they are).Insight said:I haven't tried this yet, but I have a bunch of the D&D tile packs. Assuming I'm running a SW game where some of the D&D tiles make sense, I wonder how well the SW and D&D tile packs work together...?
I have to agree with Scott. The tiles are good, and i'll certainly use them, but a lot of them are big blocks of empty, and not really that much more interesting than drawing a square on your battleboard with a marker. Some do have tie-fighters and stuff though. I'll be using them in conjunction with maps from the SW minis game (which i like better for big set pieces).arscott said:I have them, (though I haven't had a chance to use them yet--last week's game got cancelled). My one complaint is that they're a little bit boring--the dungeon tiles had cool stuff like inns and campsites, but the only cool things that the galaxy tiles have are a couple of pits and a tie-fighter.
