About compatibility 2 Years, 9 Months ago  
The description of the new ice cavernous set indicates that it has been specifically designed to be compatible with the standard cavernous sets. I am a bit confused by this as the color of the new ice cavernous set seems very different from the standard cavern set. Won't you get very abrupt color mismatches when you put the the two different types of cavern sets together. I mean, wouldn't you get a checkerboard pattern if you mixed and matched ice cavern floors and standard cavern floors. I could understand mixing and matching more effectively if there existed some transition pieces (i.e., pieces that have the color of the standard cavern but transition to the white color of the ice cavern). Am I missing something?

BTW- Don't get me wrong, I love the ice cavern set, but I wanted to see if I was missing some obvious way to use it effectively with the standard cavern sets.

Yeah i agree they dont look like you could use them side by side but i can see the Corner and twisted conversion pieces seem to be faded to the normal cavern/dungeon colour.

I think that Jeff is refering to the size being 4"x 4" same as the Cavern set, and in fact it pretty much IS the Ice Cavern Set after being frozen over either by natural OR un-natural causes...the transition pieces lead to the regular dungeons...

By the way, we had a delay in the newsletter which should go out early tommorow morning...Jeff had to rush off to see his daughter perform at her school play tonight....it's my fault that the newsletter is late, I insisted he make some last minute changes...please dis-regard the Photo in the product page as it shows some wrong pieces in the photo...the Set will not include the tall Stalagmite, that comes as a bonus piece, and I think there is also an extra medium floor piece as well...a new picture will be up tommorow...bear with us folks, this is what happens when there are only two employees in a company and they live in two different cities....sigh.
