So I'm watching this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBf519gWKoQ

And he mentions an alternate art mat being sold at GenCon. Has anyone seen this? Is it available outside GenCon?

I picked up a copy at Gencon. It's mostly the same as the regular playmat, but removes the images from the various boxes where the cards go (e.g., the 'Wilds', or the 'Combat Zone'). I felt that it provided a cleaner look and feel since it isn't as busy with images and focused more on the cool background colors and art.

I asked whether it would be available outside of Gencon and was told that it might be for sale on their website at some point, but got the impression that the chances were 50/50 or less. I would take this with a gigantic grain of salt since the person I spoke with didn't seem to know too much about these things.

For once there's an impossible-to-get exclusive item that I don't really like at all. I'll happily take the one with the artwork.

I wish this would hurry up and hit retail shelves.

That looks like the one indeed. I'll try to snap a pic once I get home and get it posted tonight for people to take a closer look.

I like it a lot, but as pointed out above, it won't be for everyone.

Looks like it may be for me. I like the clean look also.

Yeah, the clean look is nice. That said, I do like both.

That looks awesome! I really hope that's available to everyone...

Just curious, how much did it cost at their booth?

$20. Definitely an 'on a whim' purchase, but I liked it more than enough that it didn't take much convincing.

Just a heads up for anyone interested,

upperdeckstore.com now has the alternate playmat for sale for $19.99.

http://upperdeckstore.com/legendary-predator-alternate-playm...

No sign of the compatibility pack though...

Happy hunting!

I assume this is compatibility pack, just shows grey cards however.

And International buyers have to call UpperDeck, yay.

This is tempting, as I'm honestly not a huge fan of the standard mat (I really don't like Predator2 the movie). But this plus sleeves probably makes this game too rich for my blood. I'm still in the 'considering' stage.

I don't see the point in it. Most of the art is going to be covered up for a significant part of the game. I'm happy with the one that comes with the game.
