I've been away from the game for a while, but I plan to return as a PFS GM with the launch of Pathfinder 2. I noticed the 'new' Flip Tiles system, and they look really cool and useful! Being so flexible, I could imagine they'd be used in scenarios quite a lot. But before investing, I'd like to put the question here:
- Have the flip tiles been used in PFS scenarios so far? And in that case how much, more than flip mats? Any sets in particular that see good use?
- When will the first PFS2 scenarios be announced? That's also when we know which maps each scenario uses, right?
Would be grateful for any of your experiences and thoughts, to help guide my buying decisions.
The last game I ran, What the Helms Hide, made use of the tiles. I loved it. It was the Forest Starter Pack. It's 42 tiles and the scenario made use of 16 of them, i believe.
For proper use, you have to dig out the ones specified and lay them out. And then what I did after that was bundle them in backwards order so i could lay out the ones farthest away from me first and work backwards. So it was flip mat, tiles, flip mat.
I see their versatility quickly obsoleting the flip mat.
