On a serious note.
I think the best ideas include:
- Spilling food and drink, maybe even mud!? on them and then washing/ rinsing them off. (Zoom in and show paint and tiles all ok)
- More Rough handling. Pile table load of tiles into rucksack and shake it a lot. Go for a cycle ride etc. Travel through NYC. show backpack getting knocked. Crushed on public transport. Dropped to the ground etc etc Then opened in a new location. Poor pieces onto a new table... (Zoom in to show paint and tiles all ok)
- Get some 'young adults' to miss-use the tiles. Maybe a bunch of them use them for a 'Nerf War' like grenades ?? Certainly stacking them high like a game of Jenga and letting us see them fall again and again to hard table / floor is good. (Zoom in to show paint and tiles all ok)

A big +1 to dandare's thoughts above. Hammers, bowling balls, etc are cool and dramatic, but they don't get to people's subconscious fears.

Even at the increasingly awesome values of the KS campaign, these are still expensive toys. New buyers need to be reassured that Dwarvenite will stand up to *heavy but normal use*. Nobody's gonna have a bowling ball fall on their dungeon... but an excited player might indeed accidentally knock a whole table over onto a concrete floor.

I'd go for a sorta comedic "game session of the clumsiest gamers ever" vibe. Knocking over tables, accidentally dropping backpack full of tiles down the stairs, box of unused Game Tiles falling off high shelf onto the gaming table, etc.

What people want to see is that Dwarvenite can stand up to casual abuse of the everyday variety.

Anybody remember the beginning of "Ace Ventura", with the worst delivery guy ever? Picture *that guy* getting together with his friends for a gaming session.


Just my $.02.

I like davinh's idea of a funny video with worst case scenarios during gaming sessions.

set up a map, and get a couple of people so it looks like you are playing. have one of the characters get killed and then show the player throwing a hissy fit. if you are really good at video editing, cut to a scene from godzilla stomping through tokyo, then cut back to you picking up the non damaged pieces and musing how none of them are damaged.


Then the fade is how you plan (GM)to "Challenge" his character next time.

Muwahh haa haa!

When considering the best marketing/sales approach to solve, " How do I show the resiliency of the new DF tiles", go with Dandare ideas with the humorous twist of showing clumsy gamers doing all the damage. It will really sell the idea of durability with the enjoyable twist of watching clumsy gamers. If done right, I wouldn't be surprised if the video went viral.

Fire them from a Cannon! D:<

Not really though it would be great :P. I think Davinh had a few good ideas as some nights I seem to feel like godzilla as I clumsily knock everything over and lay destruction to my dungeon (sadly unintentionally)... and then you can TPK the group and let someone nerd rage the dungeon :P

Do you have a zoo nearby? Remember the luggage commercial with the gorilla - Samsonite? Or have a friend dress up in a gorilla costume and jump up and down on the pieces.

Drive over it with your car - or a steamroller! Drag it behind your car!

Give a few sets to a daycare for a week.

Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.

All great ideas.

I am sure all the ideas I could come up with have already been said. The only things I could think of were heat, food/beverage "accidents", dog chewing, cutting, etc.

Looking forward to the Vid!

I've been pondering this as well, and just now found this thread. (I am so not a forums troll :-)

What is the tensile strength when applying pressure inward from each edge of the "V" of a Wall piece? How much pressure before it snaps at the base? Same goes for all the other 90° angled pieces.

What is the resiliency of the paint on the "painted" pieces? scratches, peeling, melting, cleaning, etc...
