The tiles in the promotional video look very similar in scale to the Arcadia Quest tiles. I wondered if one could use the tiles together if desired.

I asked this same question on the KS page, but it's tough to get an answer because every post falls off the first page in a few minutes.

The key question is whether the tiles are the same size. They need the same overall dimensions and, ideally, the same thickness. There's no reason they shouldn't work if those meaurements match. Of course, they have a much lighter, cartoonier feel.

The other question is whether they have substantially different layouts. If they have similar (or identical) layouts, then there's no point.

Good to know that there is a size difference. Stylistically, the AQ stuff is more reminiscent to me of Hero Quest... Which certainly brings up the inevitable opportunity to use AQ tiles for your Black Plague dungeon crawls... Heh

Remember that BP has the secret vault passageway, which can take you to another part of the map, or even to a different map on a second table, which could be made from your AQ tiles! Size differences won't matter, if they aren't mixed together on the same map.

Depending on the map you are using (and developing) this shouldn't be a technical problem as the map does not have to be a perfect square.
