When our family sat for a demo of this game at GenCon, FFG had a really sweet playmat that had the board imprinted on it and places for the cards and character cards on the mat. I noticed that FFG is allowing FLGS to purchase this mat to help promote the game.

This is unfortunate that us regular people don't have a chance to buy this mat. I'm putting this post out there in case someone may know of an alternative to get a mat similar to this.

I know there's websites that can print out custom playmats. If by any chance anyone has the file to this style of mat, please share here.

Thanks!

The only thing that comes to my mind is, for you living in US, there should soon be available Undead promotional packs, which will include maps ready to play.

I suppose it won't be easy to get one however.

The site which you were asking about is FFG Scenario Builder.
But maps that can be found there not necessarily are suitable for printing.

That demo mat is just paper, isn't it? (It's hard to tell from that digital mockup.)

I like the traditional folding cardboard that comes in the core game, but a single-piece neoprene mat would keep terrain tiles from sliding (as they occasionally do) and could look great.

Can anyone confirm if it's paper or neoprene?

I think it's neat as a promotional aid, but I wouldn't want to play on that all the time whatever the material is. Too big, too much wasted space, etc.

Not to mention I'm playing on a homemade mat/terrain too

EDIT - Also, the edges on that mat lack the half-hexes of the standard board and now we all know they're potentially useful for LOS

The entry on the site previewing Promo Kits says:
Quote:
The kit contains:
- One exclusive BattleLore playmat featuring faction art and helpful reference material
It doesn't look like paper one.

As do I, although I think the promo card is just going to be one of the "regular" cards with different artwork. (IE, having it would be cool, but it doesn't "add" any functionality to the game, I believe).

We played on this at Gencon and it was a playmat and not paper. I asked the guy demoing it and he said it was not for sale. Really good quality.

I'd rather have a generic one, without the faction-specific details on the borders: just a neoprene version of the board in the core box. Surely that couldn't be hard to develop/produce, and I don't think I'd be the only one willing to shell out for it.
