Dias of the Dead missing piece?

I was looking at that encounter today and something has me thinking that it is short a piece. With an 8x8 center it's got the 4 corners it needs be each side need four 2x2 pieces on it for a total of 16. I see 12 walls listed along with 2 open arcs. There are also two 2x2 floor tiles which would be ...

Re: Painted prices

KS 4 = Castles and Mountains (granted there may not have been all that many mountain sets) I agree, but would have broken this up into Castles and Towers as two separate KSs with Towers maybe being paired with mountains. ... Can't have Castles without towers... If you did that then you're look at "...

Re: Painted prices

Maybe some people like the BIG Kickstarters but it's looking like KS3-KS5 could have easily been broken down into two each. KS 3 = City Builder and Sewers (a new kind of dungeon) KS 4 = Castles and Mountains (granted there may not have been all that many mountain sets) KS 5 = New Dungeon Pieces in t...

Re: No notification commiseration thread

I just got good news! I got a shipping notice for the second part of my pledge. The first shipment was about 25%-30% of my pledge. Now the rest is shipping including my primary pledges, a Count's Castle and a Watchtower, plus many add-ons. Egg-sellent!!! I might say the same thing although the "fir...

Re: Will Dungeon of Doom pledge limit go up?

Until the release the final two encounters and what their stand alone prices are you really aren't going to know how "good" the DoD deal will be. In a straight up comparison it looks like going with DL1 + encounters is an 8-12% premium over buying the higher level dungeons. The thing is that if you ...

Re: Dumb Question Time: Build Your Own Dungeon

$10 gets your foot in the door. Another $72 or $109 gets you firmly in the door with something to show for it. Of course if your target is the Lava Bridge which is $665/$949 then you're just looking at the fractions.

I am always in for the mega-pack. Especially when they throw in some sweet exclusive.
NO!!!!

You want to FORCE everyone to spend even more just to catch them all? You do that you turn off those who may have gone with the smaller packs as they are now being marginalized even further.

Re: Painted prices

Having choices in things is good. Having many choices in things of things that are nearly identical is MADDENING! With KS1 and KS2 I believe we had choices. What's more is that those choices were all pretty basic. Painted or not, how many base sets, which add-ons and how many of them. There may have...

Re: Dumb Question Time: Build Your Own Dungeon

I believe a good many people are simply using it as a place-holder for now. A Garga454 mentions moving up to Zaltar's is the equivalent of going to Dungeon Level 1 which gets you pieces AND shipping without that additional $10 charge.

Re: Please Consider Reconfiguring the Dias Paacks

I'm not a fan of "let's double the number of pieces and double the cost" idea. I like the smaller packs as that means I don't have to overbuy just to get it. Your overseas shipping of multiples may add up but a larger box would cost more to ship as well and you'd also be penalizing anyone who doesn'...
