Just wondering which of the official game mats most players would recommend to use with the starter set? I was inclined towards the Coast mat or possibly the Countryside mat.

Those are the two that most often out of stock at Aerodrome Accessories. I bought the City mat, but would like the Coast mat for Battle of Britain scenarios: defending airfields or dive-bombing Chain Home towers.

I would suspect the Countryside mat is most sold, especially for folks who start getting several.

The coast map is beautiful but causes limitations.

If I had a druther I would ask them to make another "countryside" that was different.

I ended up buying the Coastline map as that seemed the most suitable for the Battle of Britain set.

Limitations though you say?

I like the coast map the best. One disclaimer, my focus is on the war in the Pacific.

I bought the Coast map as I thought it would best suit the Battle of Britain setting. And it absolutely did! Very pleased I chose the Coast map.

I recently used the Coast playmat for a Dunkirk scenario for the movie, together with a couple of Sails of Glory mats.

I only preferred to put a blue cardboard on the islands, to be more true to the French coast. Since there was a ship moving, it was relevant. Next time I'll look for a darker one.
