Can anyone estimate how many sets you think that is? I'm pretty certain that that is 10.

I'm thinking that is one set plus stretch goals... lots and lots of stretch goals ;)

I can dream can't i???

Looks to be roughly 200-250 pieces - if we figure 25-35 pieces per set - then it is somewhere between 6 and 10

I think your guess of 10 is pretty good as they are making sample layouts to show pledge levels so (if levels are the same) this is either 5 or 10 and 10 seems more likely

OMG that looks so awesome!

I agree, probably 10 sets.

More importantly, how many unique pieces do we see?

1) Flat floor tile
2) Floor tile with elevation
3) Straight Wall
4) Curved Wall
5) Bumped In wall
6) Dead end (bump out)
7) Wall with gap at top and rubble stairs
8) Passage/Bridge type section

Are these just in the base set????

How cool is that? - anyone see anything i missed???

What we don't see is any walls with floors on the other side (to make a divider in the middle of the room) - Seems like it would be possible but it is not in the pic. I am alreaady getting stoked about the idea of using piece #7 as a snipers perch where the minions can harass the party from cover!

I see the following on close inspection:

A - Straight Wall at full height all the way across
B - Straight Wall with dip in middle
C - Straight Wall with bent in V shape
D - Floor smooth with lose small rocks
E - Floor with cracks/stones
F - Floor with ~1/2" and ~1" tall stalagmites in two of the squares
G - Corner Wall with exterior tile (so can be used as an interior tile without an additional piece to close the gap)
H - Corner Wall without exterior tile (similar to the Dungeon Curved Wall tile)
I - Corner Wall with bent in V shape (similar to the straight wall bent V tile)
J - U-shaped Wall (or dead end depending how you look at it)
K - Straight Corridor (several stalagmites on each side to form walls)

Not pictured:
L - Straight Stairs
M - Corner Stair
N - Raised Area
(I imagine these tiles will be perfect for adding or transitioning between elevated areas, similar to the Dungeon tiles Grand Stairs pack's Small Curved Stairs, Small Stairs, and Pedestals).

So 14 tiles, then any free standing bits that have not been seen yet.

ohhh, you are right - there are 2 different floor tiles!

after i posted (while i was pondering walls in the middle of caverns) i too noticed that some corners have the full 2x2 footprint (this is awesome) making two different corners

and you are right again - i just noticed the bump in, but it exists as both a bump in wall and a bump in corner

could their really be 11 different pieces in a base set? - that seems too good to be true

i would suspect other things we have seen (stairs) are part of add ons and so are not included in these photos which i was guessing were to be used to show what could be done with 10 sets... but now that we have identified 11 different pieces in the photo i am starting to question whether this is just base sets

i suppose we could just be patient and all will be revealed, but where is the fun in that? - if the GM is going to drop clues, it is our duty as players to try to piece together the mystery ;)

as a GM, I know something you have to hide some of the clues in plain sight (like a face book page). but I think Stefan is a much better GM than me and knows how to build the mood. :)

<ooops> Now I have to change my shorts.

Awesome. I am so glad I saved my money. Stephan: I spent about $1000, on the last KS. I've got $2000 ready for the next one.

All SINGLES my good man.
