To celebrate Gnome Stew’s one-year anniversary (of the marriage between delicious dead gnome flesh and game mastering, of course!), we’re giving away a set of Battlegraph Dry Erase Tiles courtesy of Longtooth Studios.


Battlegraphs are the first commercially available successor to Tact-Tiles, which were one of the best gaming products ever made.

And they look like an excellent successor. They’re modular — they lock together like jigsaw puzzle pieces — and reusable: draw on them with dry-erase markers, then clean them and use them over and over.

You can read about the basics of Battlegraphs for info on size and format, check out photos and demo videos of the tiles in action, and read the Stew’s own exclusive interview with Brian Davison of Longtooth Studios for Q&A and other details.

Also, the Stew’s own DNAphil will be reviewing them here early next week.

The Prize

Thanks to Longtooth Studios, up for grabs is one set of Battlegraph Dry Erase Tiles, shipped anywhere in the world.

I’ve had a chance to see the tiles in person, and they’re spiffy. A set of four runs $24.99, and will let you make a nice 22″ x 22″ square, an 11″ x 44″ rectangle, an L-shape, and other configurations.

The Contest

To enter the contest, all you need to do is comment on this article — that’s it.

If you’re not already a Gnome Stew member, you’ll need to register for a free account. It only takes a minute.

The contest will run from now until 9:00 pm Mountain time on Tuesday, May 19, 2009.

One entry per person, and as always Gnome Stew authors aren’t eligible. You can comment as many times as you like, but only your first comment will count for the contest.


We’ll choose the winner at random, and post the outcome in a new article sometime next week.

The winner will also be notified by email, and we’ll correspond with you to arrange mailing for your prize — so make sure the email address associated with your Gnome Stew account is valid.

That’s all there is to it! Thanks again to Brian over at Longtooth — and good luck!
