PROS: These are ... wow. Gorgeous, really bringing back that homey old "dungeon crawl" feel. I'm actually surprised how much I prefer this look to the more modern "well-polished" e-Adventures style for old school fantasy gaming.

For kids' fantasy games, where you may want a single permanent layout to make games more friendly, gluing these to black poster board will make a wicked awesome gameboard.

CONS: This set is MUCH harder to use than geomorphs. Also, an errant breeze or a knock to the table will completely destroy the layout, while with geomorphs the layout could be quickly re-created. I'm more likely to print these on plain paper and glue them permanently, which is a bit wasteful.

A loooot of ink is wasted on the unnecessary parchment background, and the way it increases the overall image size makes it very difficult to scale the rooms up and down (for, say, 1.5" clickbases, or the slightly-bigger-than-1" bases required to fully base some Reaper figs).

[4 of 5 Stars!]

Thank very much for the review! Positive and practical. Me gusta.

You're absolutely right, the Sample Pack is certainly not very economic with ink, and I've been concerned about this - ironic because I like to think of the proper set as being "printer-friendly". For now I've amended the product description, and plan to revise and republish this sample set so that it represents the main product that I'm trying to sell more closely , i.e. the Modular Dungeon Basic Set. I hope to do this in early 2011, if not sooner.

Thank you for the comparison with Geomorphs. Much like some of the products that I'm trying to emulate from the 1980's these cut-to-size modular pieces are a slightly different beast - I recommend printing to heavy card or gluing them to larger piece of card like you suggest. Different gamers will have different preferences. I certainly recommend weighting the stand-up doors! :)

On the matter of larger grids - I may have investigate these markets further ... ;)

Thanks again,
