I can only view the second link, but it looks like more of a rug.

Those are mammoth game carpets used by Mayfair Games, and doubtless now Catan Studio, for demonstration purposes at conventions. I would be amazed if you could find this for sale.

I've seen them at various cons. There's at least 5 different versions of the "board". I don't think they're available for consumers anywhere.

They are carpets and on the game fair in Essen in 2015 we get offers of 5,000 € for one. But they are not sold.

So, I'm assuming your cost to sell one would be greater than 5,000 €?

If I remember right, they cost akin to $3,500 to produce one at cost. That cost may also include the amish wood pieces instead of just the carpet. That I don't know.

Since they were only made as 1-offs for the convention circuit, there are no spares or duplicates for sale.
