Hex Tile Maps - Sea and Coast Pack

This set seems a little lacking in inspiration compared to some of the others in the DreamWorlds Hex Tile Maps range. The eight blank sea tiles don't help this impression certainly, but there are few sea cliffs, and although noted on the cover as also suitable for lakes, the lakes would have to be vast, as the set won't accommodate anything less than multi-hex in size. It would surely have been easy enough to use some of the too many "blank ocean" hexes to set up a single-hex lake, or one spanning just two or three hexes, maybe even a ribbon lake, the archetypal Scottish loch. Options for fjords too are extremely limited. What is here is good, but with a little extra effort, the set could have given a rather broader range of possibilities overall.

Good Buy.

An interesting selection of tiles around the coastal theme. Lost of rocky shoreline and beaches, seaside villages, two one hex islands, an estuary with fortified manor. These gave some good options and you would be able to make several unique multi-hex islands from these. There are also a couple of river entrances.

I disliked the advertising of 36 tiles when it is in fact only 28 coastal tiles and 8 blank ocean tiles. The ocean tiles are simply water blue with no features. There is a page of four blank ocean tiles and the remainder are scattered over different pages. My recommendation is that either: (a) features are put onto several of the ocean tiles - such as sand bars, or reefs; perhaps even a sinkhole or wreck for something interesting? (b) group the page of four ocean only tiles together so that they all connect. This way one could make large multi-hex tiles quickly - to fill out large areas of ocean.

I have given this product 3 stars. If the generic ocean tiles are improved it would get 4.
