Huzzah! I know it's a small slice of the whole boxed set, but this will be very helpful

Losing my mind over the fun add ons that recently got appended to the DoD kickstarter! That lich dice bag is an instant classic, and I love that I'll be able to get a duplicate MH tile set and a massive stack of wizard character record pads.

True -- and this reminds me, the fulfilment of TFT for UK orders seemed to go really well, at least for me and friends that ordered. Thanks to SJ Games and Gamequest too.

Very nice! Will the creature cards be the same size as the fighters?

They look to be the size of the Wizard cards.

By the way, I've been scratching my head over the meaning of the little hex motif on the bottoms of the cards. I assumed it was just a stylistic flourish, but they're not all the same. So, am I supposed to interpret or use them in some way? Like as a place to record wounds or something...

Edit: Now that I pay the slightest bit of attention to this, it is obvious the little hexes are the ST score of the figure. I suppose I got thrown off by the fact that all the generic cards have many more little hexes than the ST score of any common humanoid. Anyway, the more you know...!

I assume they are wound / fatigue trackers, because the number of hexes is always equal to the given ST (except on the blank character pads, which have an optimistic 30).

5-inch by 3.5-inch, same size as the wizard cards. This is twice the width of a fighter card, same height.

Yes, this is correct. You can even see them marked off in many pictures of them in use during actual games! ;-)
