I am sure the 6x6 was the best choice they could make, just hoping to see something to help put the 3x3 on the 2x2 grid more easily.
I agree.

Perhaps they were worried that the larger sizes with features on them would be more prone to warping and face production issues. Note that all the other large pieces are basically flat with very little relief to worry about.

I think they said the 6x6 was to allow enough space/patterns to not feel repetitive/too dense. And yes I would have preferred 4x4 or 8x8, but I think they said 8x8 was too large for some of the sculptors/processes

I also really wish they did Dreadhollow on a 4x4 grid. 8x8 or even 12x12 would have been nice too.

I can see both sides of the alignment issue. It can be easily solved by just putting pieces over the edge of the overlay to make them adjust back to 50mm grids, but it can also cause issues in large maps, which is what Dreadhollow is supposed to be about.

Further evidence though that I think the 1" scale in KS3 was a mistake and they should have stuck with 50mm instead. While no two pieces are exactly the same, most averaged around 50mm. I'm still baffled why it even happened... oh well. Dead horse and all that. While I'm beating the horse, I wish Dreadhollow was on a 4x4 grid. Here's hoping for 3x1 and 1x1 forest tiles to allow it in KS7.

Yeah, it was a big mistake for DF to change the scale, and apparently this problem will never go away. Especially now with half of the KSes on one side of the divide and the rest on the other.

I also agree with the grid of Dreadhollow. Why 3x3? Is that trying to make it less compatible? I am sure it was a manufacturing thing, but no 1 inch wide pieces in the initial offering was odd. Here is hoping for the next KS.

Some DF design decisions baffle me.
Might have been related to the trees & trunks - needed them wider to handle the tree height/weight.

I am sure that on the table the minor differences in overlay sizes will not be too bad. I hope so as I am only getting wilderness myself.

Yeah, would love to see DF do a quick layout using the cross-hair template with dungeon tiles!
I would love that as well!
