Yeah - i got marble too... but i am holding my breath

there is a BIG difference between painted in Brooklyn (one piece at a time) and painted in China (with a thousand pieces lined up on a table)...

I hope the marble looks cool - cause i have tried it and got REALLY frustrated...

Yeah would be interesting. Though I usually weigh my choices partly by how available I think it'll be or pricey post-KS.

I always get unpainted. I have a huge pile of still-to-paint, but oh well. Would I like to have this painted, or would I like an entire set of burrows? Is always the question. More always wins. (except for the marble. I got that painted because I'm pretty sucky at painting and the marble looked good)

That's a lot of painting!

I would love to see a list of average final pledge per backer, most/least chosen sets/add ons, etc.

I have a suspicion I overdid my pledge a wee bit. I also have a suspicion I didn't do it as efficiently as I could have with a higher base pledge, but I have around 15 KS1 sets or more and didn't need an overload of walls/floors.


1x Dungeon Level I - Unpainted - No Magnets $82.00 (Zaltar's Game Room)
1x Encounter Area 2: Arcane Alcove - Unpainted - No Magnets $56.00
1x Encounter Area 14: Khri Colony - Unpainted - No Magnets $348.00
1x Burrows Stilts - Unpainted - No Magnets $21.00
1x Emperor's Palace Mega Pack - Marble Ltd Ed - Painted - No Magnets $285.00
1x Fanatic's Trove - Unpainted - No Magnets $99.00
2x Eldrid's Mystic Trove - Unpainted - No Magnets $110.00
1x Wicked Dungeon Trove - Unpainted - No Magnets $67.00
1x Inner Sanctum - Jade Limited Edition - Unpainted - No Magnets $67.00
1x The Pit - Jade Limited Edition - Unpainted - No Magnets $54.00
1x Antechamber - Jade Limited Edition - Unpainted - No Magnets $82.00
1x Walls & Pillars - Golden (Forsaken Temple) - Unpainted $17.00
1x Angled Ledges - Unpainted - No Magnets $19.00
1x Ledges - Unpainted - No Magnets $24.00
1x Epic Stairs - Unpainted $20.00
1x Dungeon Bridge - Unpainted $44.00
1x Vaulted Dungeon Elevation - Unpainted $41.00
4x Large Curved Walls - Unpainted - No Magnets $64.00
1x Vaulted Dungeon Magnetic Walls - Unpainted - No Magnets $30.00
1x Passages - Walls - Unpainted $65.00
1x Classic Dungeon Advanced Builder - Unpainted - No Magnets $45.00
2x Double Doors - Unpainted - No Magnets $28.00
2x Cages - Unpainted $30.00
1x Magnetic Traps - Unpainted $19.00
1x Floor Traps - Unpainted $30.00
1x Puzzle Floor Tiles - Unpainted $23.00
2x Elevation Platform - Unpainted $58.00
1x Clear Grid Overlay (4-pack Assortment) $12.00

I think I did get just about everything I wanted in the KS, though. Maybe not in the exact quantity I wanted, but close enough for me to say I probably won't need any add-ons at all aside from maybe some passages (if I like them) or more shrine or elevations (went a bit light on that).

I've participated in every DF kickstarter, usually dropping about $400 at each for unpainted sets. In KS 5 I wanted elevation pieces, traps, terrain, and those new free standing walls (a huge improvement on the narrow passage sets). I also wanted the classic design (I didn't want to mix in vaulted walls), and stay within my usual budget.
Well I obviously went over!
In addition, my wife saw the Khiri colony and demanded we get it. We've been playing a lot of lord of the rings, and they would be perfect for burrows.

Encounter Area 5: The Gauntlet
Encounter Area 6: Acid Bath
Encounter Area 14: Khri Colony
Burrows Elevation
Burrows Tunnels
Classic Dungeon Magnetic Walls
Ancient Pillars
Double Doors
Magnetic Traps
Puzzle Floor Tiles
Dais Platforms
Dungeon Bridge
Epic Stairs
Passages - Intersections
2X Cages
Large Curved Daises

I think DF did a fantastic job providing a lot of options for very picky buyers like myself. My only suggestion would be to give addons a stretch goal next time. Only once in the campaign did I ever get excited for the stretch goals (Khiri colony), and it wasn't until the KS had finished did I realize I could maximize my purchase by getting encounter 5 and 6. Until that point I was purely an addon buyer.

I do actually, but the Dwarvenite Lego is (mostly) for their daddy.

I was originally down for a DoD, but unlike most I didn't really like the Burrows nor Shrine. Realised I was trying too hard to get a "deal" so I decided to instead go for Dungeon Level V + add-ons of my choosing. This ended up costing more than a full DoD but I get what I like rather than what's "on sale". All Hand Painted w/Magnets:

Pledge
1x Dungeon Level V

Encounters
1x Lava Bridge Encounter (Parts 1-3)

Add-Ons
1x Last Pieces of Doom
4x Double Doors
1x Emperor's Palace Mega Pack - Marble Ltd. Ed.
1x Antechamber - Jade Ltd. Ed.
1x Angled Ledges
1x Ledges
2x Elevation Platform
1x Terrain Tray Multi-Pack (Rough Stone/Water)
1x Ancient Pillars - Jade Ltd. Ed.
1x The Pit - Jade Ltd. Ed.
1x Clear Grid Overlay (4-pack asst.)

Total Cost: ~$4K.

I don't actually play RPGs at all and so this is essentially just expensive Lego (!).

Thank you for the welcome, terrain trays are on the list of maybe. I kickstarted the GameAnywhere Table which has a full magnetic playing surface so i wanted to see how that would play with the pieces and the terrain trays i have before i got a lot more if them. I have a small fear that putting the terrain tray down will make it very hard to pick up again on a metal table because of all the magnets
