Before upload a Hi-res version of my playmat, I want to know from people who have played the game is the desing is correct and useful.

Any suggestions are wellcome.

Dimensions will be 60x60 cm




Note that the background can be changed.

Wow. I've never played the game (still waiting on it), but mat sure is pretty. If it's found useful, I will ask you if you would give me permission to download it to have a mat made.

The playmat will be avaiable at BGG for free download in a high resolution PDF soon.

Of course you can download this low resolution file if you want, but don't waste money yet, wait for the best quality.

Great work of Art David!

One idea i have is that it would be useful
to have an alternate version of the Mat where
both Player Tableaus are on either side. In my
2 Player Rounds we often sit on either side
of the table and not on the same looking at the Market.

There are no tableaus on the player mat.
the top row is the market (east and west) and the bottom 2 rows are for the map.

From a practical perspective, I'd say that the background art, though beautiful, is a bit overpowering. If you muted it, the spaces would be more clearly seen. Looks great, though.

+1

A "hard light" layer of white at a moderate opacity would do the trick. It would also help the text in the top left stand out which is really my only quibble.

Having the available actions on the board is something that is SORELY lacking from the Pax Porfiriana side of the Porfiriana/Pamir deluxe board.

Agree with more opacity background, anyway all texts have a light white border for clear reading on dark brackground

what you think about the chess and china pools for pieces and money?

This looks really useful. I have one suggestion:

Since the 10 spaces at the bottom contain a map, I think there's an opportunity to do something different with that part of the mat. Maybe a border and a more cartographic flavored background pattern.

In general I think the lovely background you chose will end up feeling a bit wasted, as once the game begins, you just won't see that much of it. You could go with the more functional route and design a background that compartmentalizes the different areas more sharply, but that may beyond the scope of what you're trying to do.
