Hi!

Will we be able to buy a play mat like the one used in the Essen 2015 scenario or will PHG maybe be so kind to release the file being used to print the play mat so we can print our own?

That'd be so cool!

From what I gather the mat might be available for purchase in the future. (probably based on sales of the base game I reckon)whistle

It was literally the very first thread in this forum before you've posted this one: Please, PHG, yes to the printed game mat? Pretty please?

And it seems likely that they won't be sold by PHG:

That doesn't mean they won't also produce it for sale.

I'm all ok if they let us download the image file for the playmat... being a X-Wing player I'm used to print playmats.

And I would love to know where I can do that online in Germany, since I'm not playing X-Wing. Would be really cool if you could shoot me a short Geekmail meeple

Copied from the other thread:

There have been no decisions made. We brought the prototype to get a feel for the demand. I would like to see multiple formats to fit different budgets. A "free" download is not likely as we at the very least need to pay for the art. I really want a delux neoprene option!

Maybe you could release the printing file as a paid download, not unlikely the extra chapters of Mouse & Mystics.

It is definitely easier to play with a mat.

Yesterday we played our first game on X-wing mat. Unfotunately it wasnt as thematic as on prototype mat from Essen, but it did a job.hahhahaha

You can start with a basic grasmat from the hobbyshop.
It should at least be better looking then a wooden table!

Very excited to see this, almost got the miniatures painted and ready to go. It was a very nice experience to have bought the game at Essen from the designer! The game mat is really a must have and it really compliments the game. Do keep us updated

Yahoo! Great to hear Jerry, thanks.

Now, does anyone know where I can get this printed in Canada for a reasonable price?

On a different note Jerry, your profile pic and username depress me.

Anyone recommend a company who can print this on neoprene, in the UK, for a sensible price?
So far I've only found an Eastern Europe and an American company, and the shipping makes it a tad pricey.

Note, I've also found one that will print on vinyl, but I really want neoprene.

I'm not 100% sure. I think it was something like "inked wargames", or "inked game mats", but I can't find it now.
I recall that a 3ft x 3ft mat was about $60 plus a further $30 for shipping, add the 20% sales tax, and it's well over the $100 mark.

The European site I found had a very similar price point.
I was expecting to pay something around the $50 mark (about £35-40), but with the extra tax and shipping, it;s more than twice that!!!

I Really want the "official" mat to carry the art style through the whole game, but if I cannot find someone more local, I'll end up playing on either a plain green sheet, or a generic wargaming mat... so the scale will be up the whazoo!!! So any help from the community is greatly appreciated.

My friend's business. His stuff is great. While it is 4" more on each side for the recommended size, it would work for this game no problem.
