TOPIC: Question for people experienced with DF tiles

Re:Question for people experienced with DF tiles 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
My daughter is three. She has a bit of a sensory issue that results in her craving very rough and rambunctious play. There are not many toys that will get her to sit still for more than about five minutes. I have seen her sit for twenty to play with my dungeon tiles.

If we sit down with her she will do it for nearly an hour. "Daddy, wanna build with me?" She loves them. She will use my minis or hers to play (hers are a huge assortment of Disney mini figs she got for xmas).

When Stefan first posted the caverns prototype teaser ages ago she heard me mutter,"Sweet," and came over to see what I was looking at. She asked what it was. I told her it was more pieces that the nice man was going to make for us to build with. She had one question then. "Can you put the minis on them?" When I said yes, she cheered "YAY". She was almost as excited by the recent KS as me. She has even told me firmly that she wants to come with me to Gen Con to meet the guy that made them. That will be a challenge, that much stimulation will be hard on her with her sensory issues, but I think we will give it a try.

The short version is that yes, I think they will work well for your daughter.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

My 3 year old likes messing around with them. I'm not sure she has them grocked yet, but she likes them. We play princess castle along with some of the Bones, lol.

Lord Dust - i too have a child with sensory issues - glad you have an early handle on it, it will help smooth the road ahead (which can be rough i warn you...) - I highly recommend the book Square Peg, an amazingly insightful look at "non traditional" learners If you want to commiserate: arnold<at>kitenerd.com

My son has autism and he also is enjoying building with them. The wife and I would very much enjoy meeting up with you and your daughter at Gen Con.

I may drop you a line sometime to compare some notes. While it is harder to do with a child in the house, meditation does wonders for both patience and understanding.
