I bought these tiles for a scenario in my Arcanis campaign. It featured an arena battle with byakhee and a cult. What's interesting is that most game masters probably won't need a set of this size. You have everything you need to construct an arena with e-Adventure Tiles: Annual 1. This set provides much more detail for an arena, including above-ground and below-ground versions. Features include animal pens, gladiator training rooms, and the most important part of all – a royal box for viewing (and for you Spartcaus fans, throwing spears at the Emperor).

This set also contains a variety of miscellaneous features, including a jousting partition, a battlefield lift, and a variety of columns. But mostly the set is about the border of the arena, not the center of it, and covers seating and what lurks beneath the seats for both surface and dungeon versions.

This is a useful set, but its practical application should be considered. Most characters will be battling as gladiators in an arena, in which case the above ground features are only of value if there's plans for escape. Conversely, game masters planning an attack on an arena or an escape from it will find this set particularly valuable.

If you need coliseum tiles for your RPG or miniatures game, this will do the trick. Nothing exceptional, but all-around a decent product with enough to get the job the done.

I find this the least versatile of all the tilesets... (it is designed for a single specific purpose)

The quality is as always excellent, details are superb, graphics are great...

If your campaign features gladiatorial combat or an arena, this is the set you definitely must buy... if not then you will find uses for this set but not as many as with the other sets....

All in all a great set and certainly not a waste of money....

Versatile tiles that can be used with very little planning & effort and at the same time add a lot of enjoyment to the game.

Great visual aid to my game group, this is one of my favorites. We use the e-Adventure tile series to create encounter areas for our D20 games, as well as, for arenas to slug it out with creatures and such. Awesome product -- it does take a bit to assemble the tiles, we use a heavy mounting or poster board surface and then spray mount the tiles down in the configuration we want. Well worth the effort. Its an inexpensive, easy to add to system as well. Highly recommended product...

Quite possibly the best set Ed has released so far, the graphics on this one are simply stunning. In fact this set is so versatile and detailed it leaves other 2D-floorplan producers begging for mercy! The bonus tiles are similarly well done and link the arena to several of the other sets in the SK range.

In a word, AWESOME!

Let me start of this review of the Coliseum tileset with a quote; "Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?"

Hell - I do! This tileset lets you build a great gladiatoral arena for not only roleplayers, but also is very useful to those that play miniature games (the new D&D Minis skirmish game pops into my mind). The modular nature of the tileset allows you to create whatever arena that suits your needs, and also allows you to reuse the same tiles for another arena/s at a later point. Probably the coolest thing about this tileset is that it lets you create not only the above ground structure of the arena, but also the below ground infrastructure of the arena. Last thing - the artwork on this tileset and all SkeletonKey Games tilesets is the clear and crisp!
