While there are a few large-sized pieces in this set, the title is a bit misleading. This tile set is more of an introductory set of tiles that can be used to create some really nice looking dungeons and is completely compatible will all the other tile sets that have been released.

Since the first set of basic tiles was released about two years ago (and is now out of print) these new tiles are the ones to buy if you want to get started. The tiles in this set are just as durable as the ones you'll find in any of the other sets that have been released. Buying two sets of these is probably the way to go if you want to get maximum use out of them... the tiles have images on both sides (for example, on one 20 x 20 foot piece of tile there's a large table but if you flip it over, it can be used for making generic dungeon floor as well). This is a very fun and useful item for any edition of the dungeons and dragons game. Get them before they go out of print.

If you love D&D and 4E, spend your spare $10 on this rather than on the Dungeons & Dragons Character Record Sheets: Roleplaying Game Character Sheets, 4th Edition. You'll find these tiles much more useful and a much better value. And unlike the latter, this one actually underexaggerates its page count (says "1", but there are 6 two-sided tile sheets with over 40 tiles, large and small). Although "Halls of the Giant Kings" begins a new Dungeon Tiles product line, you won't find it much different than the previous "DT" line of tiles. Just a new new style cover, but the tiles have the same weight and texture as previous releases.

Although, as the title indicates, the illustrations of many of the tiles suggest scenarios for halls of, um, giant kings, a good number of them are very generic stone floors, objects, rubble, glyphs and so on. This makes DU1 suitable for most simple dungeon crawls, something missing from many recent DT releases now that DT1 is long out of print. In short: great value for the money.

I'm really tired of seeing all these 1 and 2 star reviews that don't actually review the product but instead use this as a soapbox to complain about high 3rd party prices. This review is about the product. Prices go up and down based on demand, why screw over a good product because you don't like someone's price?

Anyway, on to the review...

This is the first set of Dungeon Tiles since 4th Edition D&D came out. It's a great way to get started with the tiles, especially if you missed previous releases, most of which are out of print and unavailable in regular stores. In addition to having a number of good interior pieces (although not ALL are at Giant scale) the flip side offers dungeon pieces which make this a doubly useful set.

There is no adventure or content specifically tied to these tiles, at least not in this package. There is a book from Wizards called Dungeon Delve that offers a number of adventures and also references specific tile sets where appropriate.

This is a great set, very colorful and sturdy. Well worth the original retail price. As for the 3rd party price, you'll have to decide that for yourself... based on the price at the time. Collectors tend to be willing to pay more than the average player, so your mileage may vary.

First, this is a great tile set and it's referenced very often in D&D modules and other publications.

Second, it's out of print which is why everyone is gouging the price on it so much. I looked everywhere to find this product cheaper but generally you're very lucky to find it under $30 now (it first sold for ~$10).

Third, some of these pieces have been repeated in other tile sets, but overall I'm still very glad I have this one because the pieces are pretty versatile as a full set. The quality of the graphics are very good.

I've purchased a few of the DT products for my home game. Having them handy has greatly increased our play experience since it doesn't take long to put the maps together, and I don't need to worry about drawing all the terrain features.
