I know its a long-shot, but it would be neat if we could combine map pieces/tiles from other games with these in order to make some more elaborate dungeons at home. Does any other game have squares of approximately the same size?

I suspect that the zombicide games use the same size tiles (given the crossover)- meaning that the tiles from Black Plague could be ported over without much work except to determine which tiles are 'in shadow' for the MD dynamic. I would be interested to see tile graphics that could be stretched to the right size and printed for more home brewed stuff. Lots of possibility there.

Song of Blade and Heroes uses measurement for movement. You can also convert squares to inches if the MD rooms aren't 3"x3".

Arcadia Quest tiles are very similar but not a direct match. You could easily use them to make alternate maps, using both base games and all the expansion tiles. But you couldn't mix them on the same map with Zombicide/Massive Darkness tiles (unless maybe you use a MD bridge and don't care about the visual discrepancy).

You might want to go over to YouTube and watch the CMoN MD panel video. In it they stated for sure the tile were the same size by design and that the minis would use the same colors because they expected the fan base would want to make various fan made cross over scenarios.
