My player aid mats and game aid mats are all the thin card stock type. Does anyone have the thicker mats? The ones that are the same as the terrain tiles? ...just wondering if I need to request an upgrade?

Mine are thin but serviceable.

At this point the player mats are a thin cardboard sheet. Somewhere along the line and I don't remember from where, we got a version that was like the map boards. I was trying to remember where I put them, generally I am using the latest version.

I have the thin mats for placing soldier cards and my action deck/phase choices/discard pile on (the ones that replaced the wider boarder versions). I believe the mat for the story deck is thicker like the map tiles.

Kevin, yes, they are "serviceable"...but a little chintzy IMHO cool...the rest of the components are fine, but these mats just seem to curl a bit and are almost more trouble than they're worth...

The thicker ones came with the original Day of Days game. I bought mine at Historicon where it was first released and have them. They were later changed to the thinner ones when the map border was changed from the thicker one to the thinner, current style.

At that time if you ordered something you got the additional border pieces and the mats to replace the thicker ones and wider border.

Thanks for the info...I've got the thinner borders with all my stuff...and the thin card stock mats as well. I'm not to keen on the thin mats...but they do slide easily under the game map to be held in place. They're chintzy but serviceable yuk. Would have preferred the thicker ones but I can live with the card stock ones.

Ah..that makes sense. I could not remember where they came from. I believe they changed it to keep the price point the same even though they added two extra miniatures.
It would be nice if they offered an upgrade kit where you could buy those thicker mats if you wanted them. Just a thought.

Johnny hastily dug a foxhole, careful not to damage the sticky bomb detonator. The tank rumbled nearer. Fear of being crushed or spotted consumed him; yet seconds later, he deftly slapped the bomb onto a greasy gear and spun for cover, snap-firing...

Laminating the thinner stock in 5mm keeps them perfectly flat.

Michael is correct. The thicker boards came with Day of Days at one point. I know i have them.

I honestly still play with the old borders so my opponent and myself can place our cards along the edge. I just prefer that to keeping all our stuff in a separate area...

I have both styles (thicknesses) and find that both work just fine.

For rare, collectibles? Should bring at least $100 a piece.

Okay, we have a starting bid of ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS.

Do I hear 110?
