I didn't receive my invitation e-mail to the pledge manager, but was able to log in through pledgemanager.com manually.

When is the due date to lock in our pledges?

Not just you; I'd made the same observation. I had the Ramparts Double Thick Wall pack in my pledge just to get some cubes and platforms. And now I can get 2 more cubes for $1 less. So I've modified my pledge to adapt. No reason to get the pack as it was.
That kind of seems like an oversight though. I wonder why that is?

Definitely something everyone should look at, compare the larger packs with smaller packs to make up a similar number of items. Can be some good savings there.

That's a great idea. My one nit-pick is they would be better for interior room dividers without that small raised lip on the bottom. I find they make it look more like a giant window instead of an arched doorway. I suppose I could trim them off, although they might be necessary to keep he arches from warping.

Oh that's a good point, I hadn't really thought of them as internal walls for some reason. Okay, that makes a bit more sense...

You should be able to get by doing Double Thick walls without the corner posts if you use 4x8 roof platforms in the corners. Just a Roof Platform pack and some Cube Spacers should allow you to do partial double thick stuff, and then you get some 8x8 platforms too.

Better to have the set with the posts too if you can swing it, but there are other workable options.

Yeah, the arch walls are weird. Chalking them up to something I'm hoping to get at GenCon 2017.

Oh god, the Reckoning has arrived.

I want some of the CBS Arch walls, but 8 seems like waaaay more than I could ever use. I was hoping for a CBS Abbey Windows pack too, which didn't make it. I suppose 2 Arch Walls and 6 abbey windows would be too much to hope for? I know, I know, you're never going to please everyone...

I'm also struggling with double thick walls. At most I'd want one double wall side for the GC, to make an ersatz keep - but there's not an easy way to do it, mostly because there's no easy way to get those corner posts. I guess you can fudge it with some of stretch goal pieces.

In fact - is it me or are the Rampart/Castle Double Thick Wall packs slightly mispriced? Cube Spacer + Wall Platform painted are $65 - one dollar less than Rampart Double Thick Walls pack which has two less cube spacers.
