How many Cavern Passage sets do I need compared to Cavern room sets?
I was going to go for 3 Room and 2 Passage sets, but now that I'm looking at it, it looks like the passage set only has 1 straight hallway tile... Is that right?
What would you guys suggest?
Cheers,
Sam

I love the Cavernous Passages set. It's a great choice for doing explorations in the mines. The number of sets you need is however many will fit your vision and your playing space. I'd recommend three of them if you can afford them, but your needs will determine that.

Good luck, and happy playing!

I would agree with Kradlo that 3 sets is the optimum buy. I have 3 sets and rarely wish I had bought more.
Perhaps another couple of 6" long individual pieces would be useful - once they're back in stock!

As has been said, it really depends on what you do. I have only one complete set, and a few singles of other sections, and those I only got for decorative reasons, not for particular needs.

I tend to make my caverns wide and expansive, but I like having the passage elements to make things more organic, more varied, and more fun. I usually don't use the passage pieces right next to each other, making long curving mazes -- I make regular caverns, and then occasionally have one curved piece or one intersection just to break things up. It gives the expansive cavern a few "holes" and it gives me MAXIMUM space for gaming/display.

Sam,

Are you talking about CAVERN sets or DUNGEON sets? I ask because it sounds like DUNGEON, but you stated CAVERN.

In CAVERNS, 3 room to 2 passage is close to right; you might actually want to go even up. Cave systems tend to have lots of rock between chambers, since they are usually naturally-formed. Chambers and passages tend to be what Mom Nature abhors, a vacuum - at least as far as holding up the ground is concerned.
In DUNGEONS, you will probably want 3 rooms to EACH passage, because you'll use a LOT of room pieces to fill in between passages, or corridors. DUNGEONS are usually artifically-constructed, and humans tend to build a big, empty space, then fill it with walls, even when excavating underground. What we don't fill with walls, we fill back up with dirt. But digging then refilling with dirt wastes a LOT of effort in digging, so we subdivide holes whenever possible to get max usage out of them.

Of course, YOUR Mileage May Vary, so take this advice and make your own decision of how much of it you're going to follow. Most important of all,

HAVE FUN!!!!

Welcome to the hobby and the forums!

See ya!

As a side note, it looks like there are only 7 Cavern Passages sets left in stock at the moment.
I'm not sure if that's true, but if you want them before the next container it might be a good idea to grab them now.
Cheers,
