A decent, though uninspiring tile set. Overall the quality is good but these tiles have more limited use than other eAdventure offerings and thus I'd recommend checking out the more interesting sets first.

I've come to have pretty high expectations for e-Adventure tiles, but this one disappointed me a bit. The layouts of the 20 tiles are reasonably inventive and very reusable, and I appreciate Ed Bourelle's inclusion of sand drifts, tents, and a couple of clearly artificial arrangements of stone. Unfortunately, certain aspects of the tiles appear artificial when they shouldn't. Many of the boulders appear to be flat on the side facing away from the viewer, rather than a more natural round shape. More noticeably, and more displeasingly, the texture with which Ed filled the boulders cuts across different stones, undermining their ability to appear to be separate objects. This is especially obvious on tile 4, where a dark striation flows unbroken across one boulder, onto the boulder below, and then onto a third boulder, and on tile 6, where a light streak produces a similar effect. This oversight mars an otherwise excellent product. (Ed also need to remove the period after "com" in the URL on the first page, and to grant permission to print the "PDF" instead of the "mDBFrial" in the legal text.)

Desert Boulder Fields, like perhaps every SkeletonKey Games PDF, includes an overview of the different tiles before going to the full page images. These preview and instruction details only take up two pages and the rest of the file, another twenty pages, are tiles of the sands and boulders. The thing I like about these tiles is that there are a few that allow for some quick use that isn't necessarily just a desert tile.

For example, DBF11-DBF14 could all be linked to showcase a desert encampment that the party can stumble upon. Because of the natureo f the tiles, if you want the party to run across a larger group, you can print more tiles. DBF16 and 17 can be used to represent a stone trench that the party can seek shelter from. It's a nice variety of material.

Even better news, the product is on sale; $4.00 instead of $7.99. A cheesey quote might end this by saying, you can't hide those savings in the desert.
