Skirmish Tiles, Castle System is not a simple tile system. Obviously you get a bunch of extremely cool tiles you can use alone or with other Skirmish Tiles products, but there are a couple of things that take this product out of the ordinary. First, you can assemble the castle tiles in many different ways, so you can have a different castle to play on each time. Second, the process of arranging the tiles in a castle and printing them is handled entirely through this extraordinary PDF product. That is, you can easily design your castle by adding the tiles that you wish, where you wish on the battle grid with a few mouse clicks. Once you have the desired layout on screen, you can hit a button and your printer will print only the tiles you need for that layout; awesome! Moreover, if your castle is too complex you can even print a single sheet with the position of each tile on the battle grid. With the castle system designer utility, you can compose a castle up to 5'3" x 6'6"!
With this accessory you can build the upper level of a whole castle. The Castle System series allows you to build a castle from the upper level to the ground floor. Moreover, in this and other products, you get many "alternative" tiles you can use to further customize your castle (a tower destroyed, a drawbridge raised, and so on). On the game table you can mix the various levels of the castle, allowing your miniatures to go "up" and "down" simply by substituting a tile with the matching tile on the other level. You can even use the castle for your RPG: if you desire, it could be the keep infested by goblins or the stronghold of a king; your imagination is the limit. This product contains 25 gorgeous tiles.
Three more products are available for the castle; each one features one level of the castle and many "alternative" tiles.
WARNING: The Castle System Designer will only work with Adobe Acrobat Reader versions 6 and 7. You will be able to see and print tiles with higher versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
