Hello,

So I made my first trip to gencon this year, and had a great time. I got another dozen or so adventure packs and a second core set for this game in a math trade and my interest in playing more has been renewed. The guy I traded with had a homemade foamcore insert and some home printed dividers. I now have gained the knowledge and am making inserts for my other core set, as well as other games.

But while at gencon I saw a few people playing on some cool looking playmats that had some cool art and some spots to keep things like heroes and the draw/discard piles for two players clearly laid out. I enjoy getting playmats for my games and figured that they might just sell them at the Fantasy Flight booth. Went there and didn't see them. Wish I had talked to the guys playing with it, but when I went back later nobody was there.

So to make my long post short, does anyone know how I could go about obtaining a playmat for this game? I'd really like to get one, but my searches thus far have not turned up anything.

Thanks for any help, and sorry for rambling,

Ranior

I'm not sure if these are made or if they're exclusively offered for OP events, but I know I've seen files on BGG where people print them online. Should be some files out there as well as some threads in the forums.

Aha, I did not consider that they might be custom printed playmats and not made and sold by fantasy flight themselves. That probably is partially why my searches for them failed.

Even better, that image you just posted looks exactly like what I saw and was looking for!

Thanks so much for the help, I'll likely be ordering one very soon.

If they had any Fantasy Flight branding on them they're official and promotional only, if they had templates for placing decks, the staging area, etc. they are custom.

FFG has done a number of different playmats over the years in conjunction with their Fellowship Events held at participating game stores. This year's event will be held November 11-13 and features the same quest that was played at Gencon. Check out [url]https://drafts.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/7/27/defe...[url]and then talk with your FLGS to see if they are participating. And the mat for this year looks awesome!

Yep, this is the only way to get official mats, although if you really want them they do show up on eBay now and again.

I wanted to have that one since last year, but at inkedgaming price plus shipping to germany is 45$ plus 19% VAT.

Just found out that there is a german store that has a playmat printing service ludipro.de

Size seems to be 24x14". Just ordered one. It will take around 1-2 weeks. Price is 28€ incl. shipping.

I will post my impressions on it when it arrives.

I bought 2 black playmats recently just for LOTR. Guess i will have to repurpose those :/

Beautiful mat, but I don't want to be looking at spiders all the time.

That is why I plan on getting this one made. The guy posted it just recently and I think it is actually much better.

I waited for a sale at inkedplaymats and had one made. It turned out beautifully. And no creepy spiders lying in wait!
