I thought it would be fun to start a GeekList of games and people that hold "world records" in various categories, such as most bits, largest board, most games, etc.

Since I do not yet own every board game ever made (!), I will have to rely on other 'Geeks to suggest categories and identify record holders. Feel free to offer suggestions and corrections.

Largest Game Board (Not Mapsheet)

36 x 45 inches (11.25 ft2, 1.04 m2).

This category is supposed to be for the game with the largest rigid game board (not a foldable map sheet).
Is the RT map a rigid board or a sheet of paper?

Are there any larger boards?
