Oh, interesting.

I'll now get to see how these work!

Hmmm, not convinced this is a good direction to go in. This was the original direction that WotC took with their map tiles and their packs were horrible to use. Admittedly, they had everything from single 2" square tiles through to 10" square ones (trying to make a coherent map was a nightmare).

Having a standardised 6'x6" size will mitigate that somewhat.

For this to be truly worth its cost, it should feature original artwork. If they're going to rehash existing map content, then that's a really bad idea.


Isn't going to be original art?

The above art isn't final but just a placeholder btw.

Each tile in each set features new maps created specifically for that set.
As Rysky said, the package displayed above is a mock-up, not an image of the final product.


Yay! Thankies Rob :3

They’ve been doing this for a while in the Pathfinder line. FWIW, I think they’re exceptional. I really appreciate the little touches such as a small label for each tile identifying the set it came from, the tile number and whether it’s a-side or b-side. It means you can mark out an area ahead of time and easily replicate it. Plus storing and retrieving tiles is much easier.

Another thing I’ve really liked is the sheer volume in each set - you get a large variety of cohesive maps.

I do find they slip around a bit - our solution has been tiny blobs of blutac holding them to an underlying, blank flipmat and that works okay.

I use a flexible silicone mat under my tiles to stop them from slipping around. It is easy to roll or fold it to take with me and marks out the area on the table for players to keep clear before the tiles go down.

I am not sure i'll get this.
The Pathfinder "Urban Starter" flip-tiles set is very static and i havn't used it once.

Starfinder cities are much more technical in nature and feature more terrain Features, so they are not as easy to drow or build.

It all depends on the art.
Make it very modular and it may work.

Cheers. I’ll try to find something like that. It sounds perfect. :)


Forgive my ignorance, but is each tile a 6 x 6 grid of 1inch squares? Just trying to wrap my head around how these actually work. Is there a sample map spread image somewhere, or something akin to what is being offered here?


Ok, I found this sample from the Forest Starter Set in the Pathfinder line. Looks good, if the same interoperability/ability to tessellate holds...
