    Deep Madness Second Printing Kickstarter

    I picked up a couple of epic monsters in first KS and was disappointed in their size: was expecting "huge" in Pathfinder terms and got larges instead. For the price, and that they are totally optional and not in any story missions, would recommend against them. The base game is quite difficult without them, imo. I can say the ks exclusive 3d plastic spawn markers are super helpful, as there are so many tokens on the board. I went for the rest of plastic tokens this time.

    Easy Dungeon - Seamless Magnetic Dungeon Tiles

    This is a useful idea, and seems easy as an alternative to posts from the old terralinx sets, or to anchor battle systems terrain. But the mat size seems weird, and they could use addons which are just mats and bases. The page seems to be missing info on what countries they will ship to, which seems important...

    Yeah, the pricing seems too high for what they are offering for the physical pledge.

    Trends with Kickstarter Exclusives

    A number of miniatures games from KS have announced they couldnt afford to go retail even though they wanted to. The Edge: Dawnfall, Deep Madness, Mythic Battles Pantheon, want to say another of Mythic Games boardgames.... SteamForged also announced at the last minute they were making certain RE packs KS only, which I had planned to buy retail. I'd like to see companies like this set up preorder quotas after the KS instead of doing reprint KS personally. If we get X preorders we will print and ship. Seems like it would be better for their bottom end and keep games nominally in print as long as demand is there. Also something I'd like to see from DF instead of wishes and guesses on restocks.

    Rampage Dungeon

    From the openlock references, assume the floor height and wall thickness aren't a match for dwarven forge dimensions?

    Myth: Journeyman

    Yeah, hard to believe its finally coming. Does make me wonder about the inevitable rules questions. Have MegaCon shown any presence answering gameplay questions, maybe on BGG, after closing their forums?

    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    We've gone factory painted for every KS and never had regrets. The time savings and being able to use in games right out of the box is fantastic. Especially seeing how quickly my unpainted mini queue grows.... I will say, the last two KS have occasionally had unsealed pieces, though, where a black wash would come off on anything it touched. Using a spray sealer fixed the ks4 ones. In ks5 the problem has been less common still, only the smaller support pillars had it from first two shipments we got from 5.

    That's a really weird size choice for the giant. 7 inches tall seems like it wouldn't get much use in most systems.....

    OK, looks like the plastic grid was misleading. When I put DOD pieces on, there is a 2mm x 2mm seam left if I squeeze the pieces together. Talae is definitely right about a seam being present. My bad. Doesn't show up well in the photos I tried to take, though. But in person, if you use one of the non stone grids and cover it all with pieces, the underlying acid or lava texture will peak through in the gaps and be noticeable, making it less sneaky if you plan to have an event where the floor collapses and leaves some unpleasant hazard behind.

    I think all the tree tops pull off, so just the stumps would be present to block view of the board?

    So the seam is actually where the edge of the tiles is designed to hide. We have the plastic grid add on, and it perfectly covers right up to the edge of the tray's cloth. It threw us at first also, but since the magnets are more in the middle of the 2x2, it works out.

    Terrain trays are a winner in my book. My wife wasn't expecting to like them, but they won her over, too. Definitely planning to pick up more when they go on sale. They are very rigid, and the covering prevents you from slicing yourself, as happens with similar sheets we've tried to DIY from hardware stores. They form a very strong bond with the KS5 magnet pieces.

    Super awkwardly handled. Very much a head scratcher how this is playing out. Thanks for the update.

    Yeah, Underdoom mostly feels like the same set, in a different, incompatible paint scheme, needing transition pieces. The floating rocks are cool, but not worth that hefty price of admission. Sysuul fit naturally in with KS5 pieces, unlike this. If they offer the crystal caverns in normal paint scheme, might pick up some of that, but the rest.... I hope the forest pieces are more of a draw.

    Alea Tools : Color Mix Magnetic Status Markers!

    If you haven't tried them before, they're a great way to distinguish enemies for hp tracking or spell / status effects in minis on a map style games. We have enough colors from the last KS for our needs, or I'd back it in a heartbeat.
