Video of Game Tiles from Gencon (pre-order prices) 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
Here is a vid I found from Gencon showing Game Tiles & Chamber of Sorrows! While quite blurry, I deciphered some of the prices. But those may be off as well as it is really hard to read in this low-res footage.




Dungeon Gray Game Tiles
???/1 set
$175/3 sets
$215/5 sets

Deluxe Painted Game Tiles
???/1 set
$235/3 sets
$335/5 sets

Dungeon Gray pack (Accessories)
$45/set
$100/3 sets

Deluxe Painted Packs (Accessories)
$70/set
$135/3 sets

I don't know about everyone else, but i am very happy with the pricing.

Seems like the sets are basically the same as the kickstarter (minus all the stretch goals which means those of us with the green blob made out like bandits!) while the accessory packs are slightly higher. If you get a three pack of the accessories it gets down close to what we paid during the kickstarter, which is good because i couldn't afford to buy all the add ons i wanted.

IMHO the best of both worlds. The pricing is still attractive and not prohibitive for purchasing more and i still feel like DF treated those of us in the kickstarter to an amazing deal!

Thanks Stefan & Jeff you always do things right!

I do not work for Dwarven Forge, and if these numbers are wrong I apologize up front.

From the video (max size, frequent viewing, and finally getting lucky with the PAUSE button) I get:

Dungeon Grey Set for $55 ($175 for 3, $215 for 5)
Deluxe Painted Set for $85 ($235 for 3, $335 for 5)
Dungeon Grey Pack for $45 ($100 for 3)
Deluxe Painted Pack for $70 ($135 for 3)

Free shipping on orders over $100.

After viewing, I would agree with you on the Dungeon Grey set being priced at $55 for one set...but that doesn't make any sense at the 3 set level. Why buy three sets for $175 when you can buy 3 single sets for a total of $165?

I'm guessing that one set of Dungeon Grey is $65 if you pre-order at GenCon.

I agree it doesn't make a lot of sense, but if you freeze it at 14 seconds (or at the right spot between 13 and 15 seconds) it looks for all the world like $55. The second two characters (after the dollar sign) are the same, angled at the top left and no closed loop at the bottom left.

Frankly, I'm a lot more confident about the $55 than I am about the $85.

Bottom line, if I read it wrong it isn't binding on DF. If the sign is wrong... Perhaps someone who is/was actually at GenCon can post to clear this up.


For that matter, why are they giving away a free Deluxe Painted Pack when you buy 3?

And why weren't GenCon pre-order prices posted on the forum, or sent out in a newsletter? That's the sort of thing that generates word of mouth and sends more customers to the booth.

Oh don't think I'm disagreeing with you jackattack because I too will swear that it looks like $55 on the sign. I'm just saying that it doesn't make any sense.

Hopefully we'll get a GenCon field report from a trusty DF forum member soon to clear it up for us less fortunate to attend :-)

On a side note, congrats on hitting 1800 posts!

Oh wow, I didn't even notice. Thanks!

Didn't mean to sound defensive, just showing my math. Sometimes that makes it easier to find any mistakes.

And can you believe how inexpensive GameTiles are? Don't get me wrong, I'm a resin set fan to the bone, but DF at this price is a good thing for DF and for gamers. Especially when someone who acknowledges that they are "not something I'm usually into" calls them "freakin' awesome" and posts a quick video review.

DF should put "freakin' awesome" on the main page.

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

I just came across this: Stefan seeing the Game Tile GenCon booth for the first time. The video doesn't add too much to what's already been posted...
BUT the Chamber Of Sorrows is fully erected and looking marvelous :-)

One thing is very apparent: Game Tiles fit very nicely together! The upgrade in casting looks to have certainly paid off with smoother seams and tighter positioning of material.

I took a gamble and put in for a week of vacation the third week of October. If I'm lucky my order will arrive right before then and I'll have that whole block of time to swim in 500+ pieces of awesomeness :-D

Love the video of Stefan. One of the most endearing things about DF is Stefan's childlike enthusiasm for the product and his seeming amazement at the fact that so many people love it so much.

Stefan has been a stalwart in this industry from the beginning. It would be understandable if he were arrogant or jaded, but every time i see him he has the same joy in his voice that i felt as a 12yr old in the basement with a bag of chips and dice (the kind you had to rub with crayon to read the numbers - white for 1-10, black for 11-20!)

It is awesome that Stefan (who lets face it probably has as many dungeon walls as he could ever need) is just as excited to see the game tiles as i am waiting for my very first DF to arrive in my october shipment.

Thanks for sharing
