This first time I took this out of the box and unfolded all 6 flaps, I was overwhelmed. Being one of my first 'hobby' games in my collection, I had never seen a board cover this much table before.

...and adding an expansion board (or two?) helps cover up some more of said table.

It seems that WOTR set the new standard for the map of Middle Earth, in which having anything less than 2 giant boards put together would simply be inadequate.

Not only do you have over-sized player sheets and a million plastic minis and cards to store somewhere on the table, this board's pretty big too.

...when you add this to the mix, it becomes ridiculous to the point that the rule book even dedicates a section on suggestions for managing table space for all the components.

An old favorite of mine. Not only is the board a decent size when you start playing, but as the game progresses, it gets BIGGER as you unfold the flaps after having your hero jump into a whirlpool.

This one starts small, but becomes huge, though it is not really a "board" in the narrow sense. Playing surface, maybe.

From Eagle Games, publisher of the original Railroad Tycoon. The 3-part trifold boards are about 1/2" wider than the RT boards. Comes with over 800 plastic minis. I just got this in a no-ship math trade and am looking forward to getting it to the table - if I can find one to fit it on

According to the rulebook, they had planned an expansion to add a fourth board piece to include the Americas.
