If it's not too late, there could be a tongue and a socket on each face rather than just one or the other, as:
We considered and rejected several designs, including those that are along the lines of what you've described.

Big fan of the tiles as I think it allows for the most flexibility in the long run, as you can reskin the tiles and release additional sets over time.

Our hope is that by spending more time on "this is coming," we minimize the number of those who are unaware of the Kickstarter campaign.
Not sure what their rates are, but a few ads on BoardGameGeek.com might be money well spent. I've backed KS campaigns I wasn't aware of due to ads there.

I would be interested to know, if you had the time and inclination to post about it, what the drawbacks were. (While entirely accepting that it's your decision to make, and I have way less information about all this than you do!)

More pics of the road tiles. When first released in the Kickstarter campaign, the tiles will be single-sided. So that we're ready, we've already created the second side; double-sided tiles will be a stretch goal in the campaign.

OK, I can't find it, for some reason, but has the end date for the Kickstarter campaign been stated?

I figure it has been, but "I" can't find it - not that that means much. :)

I believe it's going to be 45 days or more. I want to say 60 days, but i can't remember

The first post in this thread includes several useful links, including a link to this post:

http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archive/S...rter_Schedule_

"January 6, 2020 Project close. We're running this campaign longer than some of our other projects to give everyone time to join in. We know from experience that some of you won't notice the campaign until it has closed; we're hoping that a longer running time minimizes the number of "how do I get this?" messages once the project ends."

Also, Uncle Al's Day One bonus for backers is not to be missed. http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archive/N...A_Deal_For_You
