Re:Should I purchase some of the Kickstarter sets? 1 Year ago  
Like a lot of other people at first I was just going to support DF with a small donation as I have plenty (is that possible?) of basic pieces. But the ability to get some unpainted sets is the clincher. I would like to see more unpainted options in the furture. Keep up the good work DF!

You can also support DF by posting in forums you're already part of, attending boardgame Meetups and using DF tiles in dungeon boardgames, posting reviews of DF products and mentioning the KS, showing off DF sets at your FLGS, etc.

If you're in a forum thread and are a DF veteran, you can promote the stretch goals by posting photos of dungeons from your DF tiles that match those at, say, the $120 stretch goal! That'll help n00bs get a better idea of what they can build and how many tiles they will need to pledge for!

I ended up pledging for 2 sets. It was the stretch goals and the prospect of getting a whole bunch of floor tiles that sucked me in.

Well, that and the fact that I accidentally paid off a credit card twice...

The best reason to support the ks is because Stefan and Jeff and the df staff are some of the nicest guys in the industry.

I know I hum'd and hah'd about it for about 20 mins, especially when considering the S&H cost to Canada. However, this is a great opportunity, so I tossed in my $300+ bucks for three sets. Looking forward to it!

My next though though is if I should pick up any of the Diagonal Wall Sets...hmmm...

I've got a bunch of sets (Dungeonstone & Hirst Arts) already, but the thing that really makes this Kickstarter worth jumping in on is what the tiles are made of. A rubbery substance that is hard to damage is great - especially if you ever travel with them to a friend's house or gaming store.

That durability will be very nice - even more if you have clumsy friends. ;P

I'm most interested in them because I'll be able to let my son play with them without having to hover over him the whole time or have a heart attack if he drops one on the floor.

Ok, I've pledged for 10 of the KS sets and I'm debating if this will be enough for really large builds or if I should get some extra sets. Anybody want to convince me that this is enough or try to convince me to get more?

Are you getting the add on sets too? If so, and provided you have the kind of table space that Tom and Sorn has, that should do you for the basic sets. I assume you have some of the classic dungeon sets already. That will more than cover a table and combined with accessories and specialty pieces, give you a lot of setup possibilities.

Just make sure you get enough of the add on sets. At least a couple of each.

But of course there is no such thing as too much Dwarven Forge! So go wild if you feel the need. You certainly can't beat the price.

Thanks to JGardner buying my Den of Evil Room & Passage Set, so I was able to get 3 painted sets. I will most likely get the diagonal add-one as well. I don't need the walls or corners, but I do need all the floor pieces.

Arcarius,

Thanks, I agree with your advice about what I should pick-up from the KS! :)
