I really Like Gale Force Nine's products from a quality stand point. I think that their warcaster token sets were far superior to the product put out by Privateer Press. So, I was especially excited to see GF9 was producing kits for Dungeon's and Dragons. The first item released is something I picked up on release day and I am completely happy with that purchase.
I love storage and organizing my games/gaming accessories, despite what my game room looks like. (You might think I am a candidate for Hoarders at times if you only looked at my office).
The game box comes wrapped in shrink with a cardboard display around the box, clearly showing the contents of the package, no surprises when you open the box. There are 50 tokens worthy of any GF9 product I have purchased. I really like the professional feel of the tokens including the felt backing that keeps them from slipping on the playing surface. The tokens are also very easy to pick up off the table without resorting to the need to slide the token to the end of the table like other tokens I have used (I'm looking at you Star Wars minis and D&D minis tokens).
In addition to the tokens, the storage area can hold a ton of other stuff. So far, I have placed tons of dice, other tokens and writing utensils in the box. I still have room to put a good number of minis or other play aids to simply pick up the play box and go, a sort of DM "go bag." Finally, the top of the box, which has a nive emblem on the outside, can be flipped upside down and used as a dice box with a felt surface to roll on. The box itself is sturdy and divided into six small and one large compartments. The joins are flush along the various pieces and look like they will hold up fairly well. I am still deciding if I will stain my box to give a nicer overall finish. The only concern is what it would do to the D&D logo on the front.
I am pretty happy with my purchase (retail $30), but I did pay less than retail. I do wish it had more than three of any of the status conditions or five bloodied tokens, and will use some other bloodied tokens I have from other places to fill in any gaps over five I need. I also wish the the top had a latch or something to hold it on top of the lower section. The top completely covers the top and sides of the box and you need to grip the bottom to carry the box otherwise the bottom could fall out. Overall, this kit is solid gamer bling and a nice accessory or gift for any DM or player looking for a very nice travel case to take from game to game. I am really excited to see what GF9's player kits and maps look like after purchasing this Token Set.
