Adding my endorsement here and a big thanks to dice4hire. Used my blocks for the first time in a game last weekend and they are great. As everyone else has said they are a near perfect fit with DF and far more versatile than the big slabs of pink foam I've been using.

Thanks again! :D

66 blocks in stock in the store ATM.

Whoever imagined a topic of serious thought on the DF Forums would be Japanese postal rates... :lol:

I am not sure but my guess would be 6600 to 7300 yen according to the rate table.

100 might be a good deal shipping wise.

I went by the post office and it looks like 25 blocks will likely be 4000 yen shipping as opposed to 5000 yen for 50.

Thus I can do 25 blocks for 85 dollars.

50 blocks for 125 bucks.

Not much of a savings as shipping did not drop much.

I wonder what 100 blocks would be with shipping?

I'll let everyone know what the deal is with 25 Monday, but I am not sure if it will be much cheaper. The box weighs so little already.

50 seems like a good number of these to have. If not 50, then maybe 100 or 150 would be a better number to have? :) (But then, I like irregular dungeons.)

They're a bargain when compared to elevation boxes or trays, or to the Gator Foam I bought.
