Hey guys! It’s Michael. I just wanted to address a question that was posted by 1954tiny about the creek tiles. These new tiles that are available through 2017 Fall Fest Soda ARE larger than the ones we have released in the past. These are 2X2, which is the same size as our SPREE road tiles. They look great in room and the bridge looks beautiful too. Here’s a sneak peek:



Looking forward to seeing those Fall Fest room designs :)

    Hi Michael, on one of my accounts I received a “Gopher Toy” as my fall fest soda prize? Is this a valid prize? It is not listed as one of the available prizes.

    Thank you Michael for the picture of the creek tiles. They really do look amazing and so beautiful with the bridge. I actually won one of the Creek tiles with the free code you gave out, and it’s really stunning. The details, colors and feeling of depth is remarkable. Must have more! Can’t wait.
