Dungeon Tiles - Volume 1
Publisher: Greywood Publishing
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 05/23/2010 02:11:07

With its new Dungeon Tiles line, Greywood Publishing seeks to enter a fairly crowded market, and Volume 1 makes for a somewhat disappointing initial foray. When a new product comes into a market space that's already filled with choices, the new product needs to offer some genuine added value in order to attract customers. This volume fails to do that. The layouts themselves are rather basic, uninspiring shapes on 5x5 tiles, unadorned except for cracked stone floors and thick black walls. In many ways, they remind me of 5x5 versions of some of SkeletonKey Games's earliest and most basic tile sets. What moves them from "unexciting" to "unusable" is their scale. At 20mm per square, they're noticeably smaller than the vast majority of tile sets, which run 25mm/1 inch per square, perfect for 25mm/28mm miniatures. Greywood's tiles are too small to work comfortably with miniatures on 25mm bases, and too small to connect to tile sets from other publishers. For the reasons cited here, I won't be using Greywood's tile sets at my table, and can't recommend them at yours.
