What to get next? 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
Here is what I have:

2 Classic Room and Passage Sets
1 Ruins set

1 Medieval Building Set

2 DoE Room Sets
1 DoE Room and Passage Set
1 DoE Wicked Addition Set
1 DoE Expansion Set

2 Cavern Sets
1 Cavernous River and Walls set
1 Cavernous Lake Set
1 Cavernous Passage Set

I am thinking about adding two more sets to my preorder but I can't decide between:

Wicked Additions 1,2,3 , Advanced Builder Set 1, Narrow Passage Set

Eventually I will get all of them, and probably duplicates. Also, I use Hirst to make big rooms to fill out my dungeons so I am looking more for utility which makes me think the Advanced Builder Set 1 is the way to go but to be honest, from the photographs I am having trouble seeing what it allows me to do. What do you guys think?

I would get ABS1. The abiliy to place doors in new locations using the half wall pieces is great and the one inch wall and floor pieces are also very useful with odd size rooms. Since you cast Hirst, you can make those but they will not match as nicely. And who can't use 6" corridors? After ABS, I would go with Narrow Passage set. That really is handy for adding more flexibility to classic dungeons. Twisty narrow halls, little alcoves, cool ways to connect rooms...I really love this set. Plus, check some of Kronos' pics for how he incorporates Ruins and Narrow Passage pieces. Some very cool synergy there.

I would agree ABS1 is handy.

I would probably favor the wicked addition sets, either one or two.
The alrger floor tiles are very handy for multi level layouts.
And the characte pieces, do just that. The curved passages help breakup the 90-degree bend syndrome a little too.

The narrow passages are nice. But you often only use a few pieces at time I have found, as "inners" for rooms. Good to get, but i would favour the longer wall and the larger floor pieces.

I have to agree with the strong ABS1 recommendations - you won't know how you lived without it until you get one...and then you'll want another!

Since you cast, the need for long walls and large floors is less, and you just made a kick ass pool, so maybe you don't fancy the Fantasy Floors set either? How about a MBS expansion set to make your MBS set much more useful?

If you only have 2 room and passage sets and a ruins set for
the classic dungeon line I would get WE1 &2. The advanced builder
set is cool but without more of the core pieces I doubt it
would see that much use. It's a good 6th set or later choice.

Okay so I think I am going to get the Wicked Addition Set 1, Wicked Addition Set 2, and maybe the Advanced Builder Set 1. One of these days I will add a Room set, Narrow Passage Set, and a Wicked Additions 3 set.

Good choices. Btw I stayed away from the narrow passage pieces for a long time for some reason but now they are one of my favorite sets. You
have a nice balanced collection growing there. Good gaming sir !

Can't go wrong with any of those...SO, I'd say go Hellscape for two reasons:

1 - its a limited edition set

2 - there is a Hellscape 2 that is due to come out late this year/early next year!

The woodland set is also a limited edition and I think there are only 1000 of those being produced instead of the 1500 many of the other sets have. The ice cavern set is pretty amazing to.

Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of these sets so just pick the ones you would enjoy the most.

Something nice for your girlfriend?

Barring that, I'd get ABS1 and ABS2 -OR- two sets that are from any DF line except standard dungeon.
