"Mud has been the mother of architecture" is the tag line on this set. In which case, Adobeville is the mother of terrain building sets. The first thing you notice is the sheer number of variations possible with the optional parts. A roof parapet, a dome, and two Spanish style roofs are all included as add-ons to the basic flat roof. At ground level four and six inch height walls are possible, plus a section with a small gateway. External steps are included and Glenn has even thrown in a Kiva (well). Whether you set your games in Asia, Latin America, Africa, the Carribean, Southern Spain or even in a galaxy far away, Adobeville has something for you. It's that versatile before you start considering the conversion potential. Construction is reasonably easy, using the modular, girder and wall block system devised for Slum City. You build four support girders, simple boxes, and glue them in the corners of of floor panel. Then build four wall sections, more simple boxes. The wall sections slide in between the girders, allowing you change or remove them at will. A roof with corner brackets attached, almost as easy to make as the floor, drops over the finished module. You can use the corner brackets to stack the modules or add a more decorative roof. If you want expand sideways, you simply place two modules touching together. Quick, easy and versatile. Could you possibly ask for more?
