Having been a role-playing gamer for 3o years, I was reluctant to purchase the Dungeons and Dragons, Cathedral of Chaos Dungeon Tiles at first, having for many years used a hex/grid play mat and marker pens mostly, with the occasional use of resin model scenery for detailed pre-designed large combat play. I must admit however, that I was pleasantly surprised at how good the tiles actually are. The pack comes as six pre-punched cards, printed with different designs on each side. The card is 2mm thick, making the tiles very robust and able to withstand a lot of repeated game play. The artwork design is very good, detailed and generic, thus allowing use in other fantasy role playing games also.
My only (minor) criticisms would be that: one, as the tiles are printed on both sides, it does restrict their use to one design at a time per tile, and thus the overall full use of the pack; and two, the pack does not come in a box, but with the six cards shrink-wrapped. I would recommend the use of Dungeons and Dragons, Cathedral of Chaos Dungeon Tiles, probably purchasing s second and maybe a third pack to utilise them fully.

Absolutely wonderful, many counters and useful designs, including a diagonal passage, for that extra variety.
The only improvement I can see is that a few of the extra tiles with the set take a little while to figure out, some look like ingots, or maybe walls viewed from above. A little key on the packaging would really help with any discrepancies for the more vague tiles, though you can always decide something different.

Fairly useful tiles. Picked these up for £10, which seemed an alright price. Some very useful pieces to.
Water tiles, lava tiles, lots of statues and ghost type counters. Some odd jagged type tiles. A good variety!
