The usual high standard of artwork from Ed is present here in a very welcome addition to the town series, and as one of the other reviewers (Jason Bostwick)rightly says, this set fits well with the oter town sets.

However, again as the other two reviewers say, it is all rather bland and empty. This becomes more so when you print them out and start using them. Not being an artist my only solution is to print out some extra floorpalns with cargo on from this/other sets and make up some small tiles, as this is incredibly empty.

I think there are also too few buildings on here, or other features such as a fish market, customs, dock guardhouse, sail/net/tack shop, scales/hooks for large fish (eg sharks).

On a more positive note though, because it is bland it does make it more easily customisable. Although in summary it's not really my ideal wharf set, to be honest. What is there is good, but I feel for value for money it falls well short of the standard fare I have come to expect from the e-Adventure Tiles series.

So, for my rating, I think what is there, for quality of artwork is 5-star, but less 1-star for blandness, and less another star for the price for this set.

I'm very glad to see some more additions to the Adventure Town series, and this came in very handy in my Ptolus Campaign. I especially appreciate how it syncs up well with the Canals, Warehouses, and High Seas warships tiles.

My only problem with the set is that the Wharfs are far too empty - the Warehouse tiles and the holds of the Warships seem to be bursting at the seams with cargo, and in comparison the Wharfs are barren. It was easy enough to copy in some barrels and crates in Photoshop, but it would be nice if some of the tiles were not so static.

I look forward to more entries in the Adventure Town series!

I would have liked to see some more variation in this tile set, some warehouses out on the wharf, maybe more rooms, a guard house, and the like. Saying that the art work is the usual quality of I have come to expect from Ed.
