I thought about this the other day. The board for this game is great, but the double board is a tad cumbersome. It doesn't take much to get them even slightly misaligned.

This game is ripe for a roll out playmat. With all the custom ones put there, I figured someone would have had one made or a good image that can be used for custom sites available. Yet, I find nothing.

Thoughts?

The Death Playmat plans were placed within a droid. It was last seen on Tatooine.

I am sending Darth Vader to Tatooine with three stormtroopers on the deathstar with a star destroyer as backup. I will capture someone to interrogate or blow the whole damned planet up! Oh...and now it's subjugated...can I have a subjugation token please?

The Death Stars and DSUC are pretty top heavy. I wonder how well they would handle the non-rigidity of a playmat.

You can't subjugate a remote planet.

No token needed.


I feel like a playmat is a great idea for games where the rest of the components don't fill the box completely.
For Rebellion, between the component storage boxes I have put together and the card boxes, the game-box is almost full and can just fit the original board.

But if you have experience printing out playmates, can you please tell me where you can do it cheaply?

It won't be cheap. Many Bothans must die to bring you your playmat.

The giant neoprene mat for Mare Nostrum is a hundo... as a way or reference...

Firefly is a vinyl mat, so not apples to apples.

Printed playmates should be readily available...

Ah yes, Hundo Calrissian, Lando's lesser known half brother. It's a shame that he doesn't get air time in the movies.

Here's hoping that changes in the sequels!

I used pixartprinting.com to print out vinyl maps for Imperial Assault Skirmish. The maps turned out nice and I will do it again in the future as more maps are released.

The only thing we would need to get this little project done is a high res scan of the game board. I don't have the equipment for such a large map. If the scan was of high enough quality, I'd even print it out larger (I did that with a RISK board once, it was amazing). There's so much going on in this game, I think spreading it out over a larger play area would help.

Is it? I thought it was neoprene. My bad.

That is actually why I started this thread. I was thinking how much a playmat would work over the current board configuration. So I went to the files to see if someone might have made a good scan of the board. Then I started digging online. All images of the board I found are at odd angles and not super high resolution.
