New use of DF !! yep ! 3 Years, 7 Months ago  
As you may know, last year WOTC USA launched "D&D Castle Ravenloft".
In february 15, 2011 the second box "D&D Ashardalon" had been released and each box is a seperate & complete boardgame.
You can mix each box (42 figurines each one !) but you play on a ugly tile system.

I realized that DF suits perfectly to this boardgame !
Here's the dunjeon as it appears once I have finished the first quest (randomly generated) :

Very cool! I've been wondering if DF terrain could be used for these games.

However, when using the DF pieces instead of the cardboard ones, how do you know where one game tile ends and another begins? Since most monsters behave differently depending on how many tiles they are away from the PCs, this seems like an important issue.

Do you build two maps simultaneously, one using the cardboard and one using the DF terrain?

No need.
"tile" are squares of 4x4 Df pieces so it's easy to check it.

Looks really cool! Thank you for posting! DF = best way to play D&D.

Do the miniatures have a good quality? I'm thinking of buying the games and repaint the minis.

That looks really cool, it's a good game, we played 'Wrath of Ashardalon' last week.

You would need some way of noting the little black and white arrows though as they are used for some monsters.
