All i can say is "thank god DF keeps the home page clean" - I Love the way they do this (swapping the pics to show additional stretch goals) so that everything is organized and easy to understand. With the bones KS there were images everywhere, i had a hard time figuring out what was included with what, what was on deck, what was unlocked, what cost extra... DF has by far the nicest presentation and the most straightforward pledge levels i have seen.

Funded in 10 minutes
250K in under an hour
500K in under 4 hours

This is a fun ride!

As for whiners... there will always be some. If you gave the product away they would complain that they had nothing to store it in. We were spoiled by the first KS which got the price per piece down around $1, but a lot of those were not "real" pieces (by which i mean they were barrels or, little stairs or whatever - don't get me wrong, i love those pieces) With caverns, the stretch goals are WAY more awesome. Entirely new sculpts that add distinctiveness and character to the cave. Plus so far all of the add ons have been FULL SIZE PIECES!!!! In the last KS only the Window, Curved Wall and Diagonal Wall were full size. This KS has only begun and has already blown way past that.

Most fun i have had on the computer since last KS! Actually watching and reading everyones unboxing while i waited for my tiles was a pretty exciting time too!!!


PS - Did i see a waterfall in that teaser pic?







We need something to store these in....

Any chance we'll see distribution directly from China to Europe instead of via the USA?
I don't mind the European VAT(much...), but the shipping costs from the USA are taking the fun out of the project.

The 10 set pledge with current bonus pieces is down to $1.80 a piece.

If I remember correctly, my last KS pledge was around .28 per piece by the time we were all said and done. anyone remember different? I bought 1 10 set and 1 5 set (plus some extras)

I'm in for 10 unpainted sets...to start. Really hoping some new pokorny paints come out of this, find those really useful for a whole host of terrain projects.

for the Game tile KS:5 set of of unpainted (74*5=370 at a cost of $260) had mine down to 70 cents per piece, but adding in my 6 addon, 2 floor pack, Diagonal pack, curved pack (4 unpainted), a painted dressing and COS brought me to $1.09 per piece.


I need to not go to the comment section on the KS. after a year of enlightened intelligent talk in these forums I am spoiled. if I hear another rant of "leveling off" "doomed" "not enough stuff" "why updates take so long" I going to morph in to a cavern troll and get my self booted from the comments section. :D :D

Given the massive number of tiles I got last time, only in for five sets this time.

Looking forward to the final delivery!!

More people pledge up front, so things "level off" pretty darn fast, leading to the dreaded "lull", slowing down stretch goals for a while, meaning "not enough stuff", and updates necessarily slow down. It's a symptom of success, not a sign of trouble.

I can only hope Stefan has more videos lined up this time around, to quell the party poopers. If not, shame on him for withholding his infectious enthusiasm, perhaps the most effective sales tool he possesses. The initial base set alone is a masterpiece worthy of unrelenting hawking.

50K to the next pledge level - did anyone else notice the next stretch goal room is shaped like a kobold's head? - i shudder to think what that could portend

edit - this is the 500th post in this thread - does that make it the longest thread on the forums???

Wow, 500 posts... that is a lot of time spent anxiously awaiting the Kickstarter launch.

Must say, though, that I am super thrilled with the results so far!!! :)

Even after paying for shipping to Australia my 5 painted sets & 5 add-ons from the Dungeon Tile KS cost a mere $1.84 AUD per piece that was cheaper than my WoC D&D minis cost me.

Of course the AUD has gone from 1.06 USD to .90 in the meantime (sad face).
