Dungeon Tile ♥

At ~$10 a set, Dungeon Tiles are some of the best value for money in the gaming hobby. I've dipped my toe into the world of tiles before, most recently with the Star Wars equivalent set, "Galaxy Tiles," and various maps from the miniatures. But recently I went on a tile-acquiring binge, and the main bulk (a from Paizo) arrived today. So now I have:

  • Galaxy Tiles (x2)

  • Arcane Towers

  • Fane of the Forgotten Gods

  • Caves of Carnage

  • Dire Tombs (x2)

Of the D&D sets, "Dire Tombs" is by far the best, but it's also one of the older sets and so harder to find. Unfortunately, they only released the one set of "Galaxy Tiles" and show no signs of releasing more any time soon, but I have enough maps from the miniatures game and the old West End game (not to mention scenery bits from the old Micro Collection and other sources) that I can probably make do for most purposes. Besides, being space opera, Star Wars is just as likely to use fantasy tiles as it is deckplates.

I figure this splurge will give me a nice core to work from. I'll probably pick up new sets one at a time as they come out in the future (like I say, value for money). The next challenge is going to be storing them...

buy em as you see em because when they go they GO. Once they are sold out then their price hits the ceiling because the only seem to make each set once.

Start here and poke around. Or possibly here:


Paizo's map packs are almost as good, but aren't the heavy cardstock yumminess of full-fledged Dungeon Tiles.

Or try your friendly local game store (FLGS)! :)

Heck, Barnes&Noble probably has the current set in the store.

Heck, the fantasy ones would be great if your team ever has to explore an old abandoned Jedi/Sith temple.
