I really like this Base Set. I wanted to get into constructing 3D maps but time is very precious these days, and this set gets you started FAST. It is very easy AND fun to put together. The instructions are very clear. There are a lot of options to customize your layout. One suggestion would be to add some examples of a "full-map" layout, for those less creative types out there. As it is, you are free to design your own layout and make it as big or small as you like, with any number of terrain features. Overall, a great set and a fabulous value.
