The illustrations on these tiles are fairly pleasing, but not so much as to be distracting to game play. Even though this is called "Pirate Set 1" there does not appear to be much piracy going on. The tiles could just be called "Tropical Island" The coastline tiles are sufficenly varied to make the coastlines non repetitive, but I wish there was another type of interior tile.
The data in this package are JPEG files which will print out at the correct scale. One of the JPEG files gives an overview map. It would have been nice to have a quick list of how many prints of type X or Y are needed to assemble the overview map.
I printed this on 110lb cardstock with an inkjet printer. After pressing flat for sometime it was usable. Next time I will find some cardboard and mount the prints to it.
