I hate to phrase it like this, but... yes. :)

The set isn't exciting for current DF fans, because it is basically a Room Set. However, it's really important for three reasons:

1) It's cheaper, and I know I could use some more Basic Dungeon tiles.

2) You have the option of getting them unpainted, which many people wanted, which also makes them even cheaper.

3) This is the most important: It helps get Dwarven Forge to people who couldn't afford it or didn't know about it before. As its popularity spreads, it will get Jeff and Stefan more money, and it will also get more customers for the traditional DF lines. The influx of new customers will want more interesting sets once they see how cool the Game TIles are, and Dwarven Forge as a whole will be able to keep selling quality stuff, and maybe branch into new territory (coughStackableCastlescough)

I can totally understand being disappointed, but all I can really say to that is, "wait and see."

The initial set of pieces didn't strike me as a tremendous value either, but as stretch goals continue to be added, the value is going up. It's not inconceivable that by the time this is over, the per-piece cost will be down to $1 or less, painted (it's at about $2 right now, depending on your pledge level, which is slightly less than you'd pay per piece for the existing room set.

I think what will make it exciting is when stretch goals include new pieces, rather than just more of what we've already seen. At the pace we're seeing, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the entire campaign raises more than $2 million, which means another 15-20 (or more?) stretch goals. At that point, I'm hoping that we'll have another 4 or 5 new pieces in the mix (like curved walls, diagonal walls, ruined walls...all the cool stuff we've seen in other DF sets over the years.) If that happens, the value will be amazing, and it's going to be really exciting.

I hope you are right VC, but I think the stretch goals will just more and more and more of the same pieces. I REALLY hope I am wring, but I have seen nothing to make me believe otherwise yet.

We shall see. I'm REALLY hoping for diagonal walls at the $150K level.

As a 'New Style' room set. It is great value. It Looks different but fully compatible.
I plan to use them to differentiate areas in a dungeon etc. IE - A whole level/part of a dungeon. or a special 'Throne room' / 'treasure room' etc. It enhances what there already is.

But agree with some of the previous comments. Would like to see 'some special pieces'.
I LOVE the new doors - happy to trade the 'stretch' 4 additional straight walls for 1 more door. (As a simple example of a different stretch.)

Great idea to get more people to use DF. But I have one question:

Will DF still make the more traditional type pieces, or are all new sets going to be made like this?

Catacomb 2 is in development and I expect it also before Christmas. This is a classic material set.

Actually I hope the success of the KS will help to make more restocking possible in the US.

I guess I can't resist a Kickstarter campaign. I'm in for five painted sets.

I've been looking at the DF site and products with lust in my heart for a long time now, but never made a purchase. I'm stoked to get in on this great opportunity and bought in for 3 sets! Good luck, Stefan & Co!
