By Bill on March 9, 2011
Format: Board book
I am a big fan of WOTC dungeon tiles, owning at least one of every set. However, this latest offering is a bit of a disappointment. It is frankly pretty difficult to build much variety of workable terrain with this set. You can build a snowy plain, a nice winter farm setting, or one snow-filled large cave, and that's about it. You cannot build for example, glacial rifts, snowy mountains, or large ice cave complexes. So just make sure your desired setting is one of the above before you invest.

I tried to recreate the frost goblin ambush setting from Dungeon #159, and it would take at least three or more likely four sets to build a reasonable depiction of that battlefield. So don't think on too grand a scale (unless you can afford to buy multiple sets).

A few details, some good, some bad:

- There is a transition tile from snowy terrain to paved dungeon, but the color is off and doesn't match the rest of the snow terrain. Irritating.
- There are some nice 1x1 and 2x2 tiles of ice outcroppings, ice sculptures, and even an ice throne. On the reverse of each is a pile of shattered ice shards for when they get damaged in combat. A nice touch.
- The cavern wall tiles don't extend the wall to the corner vertex of the tile, so the walls never line up nicely.
- There is not a good transition tile from snow cave to normal cave, except for one tile that shows an underground stream flowing out of a snowbank. Have fun

Not very versatile for the most part, at least most tiles in this set aren't - but as it is a specific-use set for cold regions, this should be expected. Good artwork for sure, same good quality materials used as well.

I have to agree with Bill on this one--just opened my copy yesterday and right off the bat I could see the limitations of this set. There is only (1) 8 by 8 tile, which to me is a bad start on terrain as largely featureless as ice plains and snow...tundra should have miles of open space, and unfortunately it will be really hard to convey that by filling in the blank areas with battlemat...it just loses something in the translation. Also, there are about 3 tiles with snowy trees...yep, just three...I could have done without the polar-bear rug, ice sculptures, ice throne and two small boats for more trees with snow, and less "icy chasm" and "icy cavern" tiles for more 8 by 8's of ice or snow plains. Still, I guess it IS called CAVERNS of icewind dale...I think WotC missed the mark on this one, I'd say, and if you're thinking of using this for a snow-pocalypse style game, I would suggest buying at least 4 total of these sets, because of the limitations of the variety of tiles.

Bought this and a few others from the master set, this is a review from someone who is a dungeon master.
I made the decision to tone down the tech i was using so i bought this and a few others and i must admit, my players enjoyed being able to physically move their minis across the board. it gives them a better visual then just staring at a screen.

From my aspect it much easier to piece tiles together the night before than it is to spend hours creating custom maps on my laptop.

I highly recommend this for any DM who is considering going with tiles.

It's pretty great, it's beautiful and it's got scenes like no other, but the tiles just aren't as resistent as the ones from the master set. I recommend NOT punching out the tiles, but taking them out with a razorblade or something like that because the edges ripped a bit on many ocasions.

This is an okay set of dungeon tiles. It transitions easily to a "caves" or "underdark" tile set.

I'm only going 3-star on this one because there were just too many "uni-tasker" tiles for me. Like the tile on the cover: it's bold and memorable... great for a set-piece encounter, but so memorable that I wouldn't want to use it in two games with the same players. I think dungeon tiles should focus on re-usability... let me draw the truly "unique" maps on my dry-erase battle grid or gaming paper.

I love this set. What others have said might have some truth to the sets versatility in creating terrain with variety, BUT if you are trying to make snow covered plains or a snow covered forest this set is great. You will need to buy 2 or 3 sets, but thats the case will all tile sets. I really like this set. Just using snow covered tree tiles from 3 sets created a nice winter forest.

I actually like it when they make sets with open range tiles or tree tiles. Keep the setting specific tiles like table, chairs, other features on smaller separate tiles. This set does this very well.
