Re:Soon... 1 Year, 8 Months ago  
Let the rampant speculation, er, continue!

Well, I'm guessing this involves the kickstarter. When that was being discussed, I seem to recall Stefan saying that die-hard old fans probably wouldn't be as interested, and this would be something mostly to bring people in.

My guess is that it's a variant basic dungeon set, with maybe a few elements (like this door) that we haven't seen yet, but mostly very similar to what old fans would already have. Sure, completists might want to make sure they get every possible door that DF ever releases, but it won't have the pizzaz that Hellscape or Catacombs have -- because we already have a basic dungeon set.


I know I have to be missing SOMETHING, though, because a basic room set already exists. Maybe the components are more catering to newbies? Not sure how that would work. I was gonna guess "DF is returning to retail!" but I'm not sure how kickstarter would help with that.

Hmmm...

looking forward to seeing what this is about. Kickstarter is costing me a lot recently (Zombicide, Sails of Glory, Smallworld) but i have some aside for DF though.

Man, that picture is... so vague.

I can't for the life of me think what it would be, but I assume the reveal date is still March 18th.

EDIT:
Okay, so after considering... Perhaps it's a new way of producing DF sets in greater detail, and it wouldn't interest long-time collectors because they have the sets already (much like the switch from bowties, no reason to re-purchase every set you have)

It could be a newer, cheaper material to bring in some new potential collectors. Though I certainly wouldn't bet on that idea- going cheap is kind of the antithesis of what DF is all about.

Perhaps its kind of a "greatest hits" set? Something not as open or versatile as the R&P set, but containing the basics plus a few cool elements from some of the WA, AB & Fantast Floor sets.

Or maybe I'm totally wrong and its neither of those things lol

I'm really looking forward to seeing what new hotness is forthcoming, but I also hope they continue producing many existing designs. I've only recently made my first DF purchase and am eager to get my hands on a number of sold out sets.

I just want to reassure everyone that they don't have to worry - the existing sets will be continued and also new sets are being produced. I would be devastated if this wouldn't be the case.

About all the other speculation here - I hope you understand if I don't say if/what/who is guessing in the right direction or if you are (all) partly/completely wrong.

Just one last bit - I'm not sure if it slips a few days after the 18ths. I'm still waiting for my own sneak preview and can't wait to see the video and the final pieces.

Great looking door. Solves many of the problems.
The door itself is 'Sealed' within the frame side. (and not removable.) (Still can be opened / closed.)
When open - people can 'walk' figures through and even in the doorway.
Very nice!

BTW - I want ten of those new doors ASAP..
Did I say 'want', I meant NEED.
;)

My guess?
It is a set that helps people move from 2D to 3D.
A combo of great quality printed rooms etc / card stock etc and some 'real' elements.
Like doors. Like fireplace. Focus on moving parts. To get people into the hobby and using 3D pieces and then looking to go the whole hog into our 3D word that is full on DF!
The images may even be only of the existing sets so that that they can then slowly buy the same in 3D.

I am voting with the greatest hits idea - something like a base set (like the old Starter Set?) with some extras thrown in. More and more extras thrown in as each successive stretch goal is reached?

I'm thinking maybe it will be about just bringing up their stock levels so stuff doesn't run out as easily. Or maybe to start offering all pieces 'ala carte' so that a new collector could buy little bits here and there. This would also be good for long time collectors to get their hands on pieces they want more of without purchasing the whole set. An example for me I want more portcullis pieces but don't need more WA sets. I had five at one point in time and when I moved four of them got broken so replacing just those pieces would be awesome.

Hmmm.... Note the absence of the floor grid.

That's not a full tile attached to the door, it's just a base to keep the door standing upright. Those have never been gridded.
