I need help deciding how many sets to get 12 Months ago  
Hi, everyone. I'm a new forum member. I've been enjoying reading over old posts for about a month. I have a couple of questions. I jumped in on the KS for 10 sets unpainted.

Question 1: If I pledge for a 10 grey set, is it okay pledge-wise to switch to 5 sets plus some add-on packs? As long as I keep about the same or a little more of the pledge dollar amount? Or, is it expected if you pledge for 10 sets you buy 10 sets?

Question 2: Those of you who already own multiple sets may be able to help me with this one. I have a table that's 40" wide by 72" long. I want to be able to fill it. I need to keep to about the $500 mark. Is 5 sets with multiple add-ons enough? Or will I need 10 sets to fill the table?

Question 3: What do you pro's think of this mix of add-on packs? 2 each of the floor packs, 2 each of the dungeon dressing packs, 1 each of the 2 Wall packs, and 1 Chamber of Sorrows. Should I do more or less of any of the packs?

Thanks very much for any help.

Answer 1: I don't know. This is my first (or second) KS. But I don't see any way to change your pledge amount once the KS ends and they collect the payment. You can, however, change your pledge amount before the KS ends, and I am fairly sure you can change your pledge level as well to change the number of pledge-sets vs add-ons.

Answer 2: 612 pieces will cover that table solid, leaving a 2" border around the edges. That's a building-type setup, no gaps. For a tight dungeon-type setup with passages and space between rooms, cut that number in half. The basic pledge-set is 32 pieces, and the diagonal and curved wall add-ons are 16 pieces. I leave the math to you.

Answer 3: This is a highly subjective question, but I think that's a good mix. I'm getting one diagonal wall, one curved wall, and two dressings. I'm not getting enough pledge-sets to need the floors, and CoS isn't my cuppa.

Regarding question 1, if you pledge for 10 sets, you will be bound to buy 10 sets. If you pledge for 5 sets and overpledge, you will have to specify toward which product you want your overpledged money to go to, which could add-ons and/or more sets. If you want to maintain low price per Sets, include the total # of Sets you want in your pledge level to take advantage of wholesale values. This is because 10 Sets is cheaper than two times 5 Sets.

I think the best price point is at five sets. It starts at $65 for one. Lets forget that, everybody needs to go for at least two for $60 each. They get to $52 each at five sets. (Aim ignoring stretch rewards for simplicity since i am on a thread mill.) Ten sets only gets you to $50 each.

Our beloved business partners want volume, so they rewarded us to the point they can maximize the numbers of sets. They probably would have been at risk until $1MM with the five set price. Hopefully they are safe now. ( This is a huge assumption that the cost curve was flattenning. i am a treadmill for goodness sake!). Painted sets are probably the icing on the cake for DF since material is 40% of cost in manufacturing.

They might even give you some gray paint and a cheap brush when they sell unpainted game tiles in stores. I assume that is the point of this. DF should be in stores next to dice and the D&D books to go main stream. Then you go online to buy Chamber of Sorrows Wicked Additons 3!!!

Hi, guys, Thanks very much for all of the help. I did the math (with Jackattack's help) and it looks like 5 sets (plus all the freebies) will be plenty to cover my table. That will let me get some of those sweet add-ons for more variety. Also, it sounds like it's okay to drop from a 10 set pledge to a 5 set pledge prior to the end of the KS. I still intend to keep the same monetary value of the pledge, I'm just going for more different stuff.

This is exactly the information I was needing to know! My table is almost the exact same size, and I was worried that 10 sets would be way too much.

Dropped the sets down to 5 but increased the amount of addons instead. Thanks much for this helpful post!
