You definitely need two starter sets. That's a good minimum -- I think DF made the $50 sets to make it possible to add on in small increments, but there's no way starting with only one set will work. (you COULD start with 1 starter and 1 passage set, but 2 starters will give you a lot more flexibility)

Two starters gives you enough for several rooms and a good sized space for battles -- but it won't be nearly as big as the map that comes with the SWM Starter Set. If you have the money, I recommend getting 1 Alpha expansion too, just to spice things up and add floor space.

When you want to add more, I suggest adding the starter sets and alpha sets in twos, not one at a time. Passage sets you can use at your discretion -- but the starter sets are very, very flexible, and those corner and wall pieces come in very, very, very handy.

As many as you can get ;)

2 of each of the basic seemed pretty good, adding the floors (2) was great, lots more area, and a third Starter was great for more walls...

3 Sets of something should be a good start, 2 rooms and either a floor or passage.

My answer has always been "As many as I can get my grubby little hands on."

Of course, that's no help. Right now, I only have one of each Sci-Fi set, probably with more to come after Christmas. If you get the Alpha set, there's practically no way to build rooms with it unless you have 3 or more starter sets. I'm going to end up with 2 alpha, 4 starter and 2 passage as soon as my wallet allows, and then re-evaluate my needs from there.

Of course, my priority is getting stuff for the D&D game I run, and right now that means more cavern sets. So I'm guessing it will be a while before my sci-fi setup is up to snuff.

No the Great YC must buy more Sci-Fi, Buy more Sc-Fi...

If there is the passages still hanging around my FLGS after Christmass i will likely get it. I need more. While they are in some senses my least favorite of the sets... They do have there uses. the cross pieces make excelent bases to put the big floors on, the passagesaren't bad and when we get curved etc they will be much nicer...
