Narrow Passages Add-On Corners? 7 Months, 1 Week ago  
This question came up in the KS comment thread a few times (only sometimes due to my instigation) but it isn't very visible there so I thought I'd come out of lurker mode briefly to ask the question here:

Could the Narrow Passages Add-on pack come with more Corners 'B' instead of Corners 'A'?

My thought is that if you want to maximize the appeal of each add-on pack, then 'A' pieces are a bit less appealing than others due to the following sort of psychology:

"Well, I already have a ton of 'A' pieces from my base sets. I feel bad getting even more of the 'normal' pieces instead of the 'special' ones."

Pretty clearly, Corner 'C' isn't going to fit here, but it seems like 'B' could be used for a narrow passage corner. Even though 'A' is going to be the most commonly used tool for this, everyone considering this Add-on is starting from a position of having 4x as many 'A' as 'B' or 'C' already.

I agree too. I think the set could include both "B" and "C" (even though "C" is obviously not ideal for the narrow passages, at least if you want the boulder to roll down 'em). I doubt there will be anyone at all who will pledge for the add-on without having at least one base set, which means at least 8 of corner "A". And since they've evidently covered the molds for "B" and "C", might as well add a few more of those into the mix.

My voice was one with Lork... and that was the change i expected... i was blown away (and thrilled) with the addition of two pieces, a new sculpt and a great deal of versatility to the set

don't get me wrong - i still want more corner B pieces - i like interrupting large rooms, cover makes any battle much more interesting

That being said i am in agreement with what Lork said in the comment sections... something to the effect of "and here i was worried about different corners..."

If you take a giant step back - these sets are put together as they will be sold post kickstarter - these passages are meant to connect multiple caverns (on a more or less open field of play) so having corners in the pack with a 2x2 footprint (meant to be used inside of larger chambers) is somewhat nonsensical despite what we might want at this moment to make our total package more complete

hopefully as the $$$ pile up we'll get a few more Corner B pieces - either as stretch goals or in another add on pack

Even turning the three corners included into one each of A, B, and C would improve my proportions of each, but I assumed needing to pack from three pieces (one of each) might be logistically worse that packing one piece (all A or all B)

Also just checked the KS thread again. I also wholeheartedly endorse the idea of giving some more of the standard-corner space in the set to 45s. :D
