Earlier I had made a image showing all combinations of how the edges of neoprene mats M1, M3, M4, and M5 can tile together. SJG hasn't posted nice flat images of M6 and M7 yet, so I took photos of mine in order to update the visual tiling guide.

I tucked an M6 and M7 into my original big tiling image. Then made a new one showing many combos with the new mats. Some of these edge connections will need overlay help; this image incorporates all of the suggested combo layouts that Drew noted on the SJG forum.

While of course you could buy piles of maps for the 'big game'; these will be most useful for visualising more practical combos by taking smaller portions of the grids for scenario layouts.

I don't know how big of a table that would be or how we would even get to the center to move our units but I want to game at your place

Each mat is 2' x 2'.
6' is the widest table I enjoy playing on.
But fun and reachability can be had with L-shaped tables.

You could always get a croupier stick, or a "war room push stick" as some call them, to reach the minis in the center.

Tricky moving tiny miniatures, and getting disabled makers on and off.

I have always found the 4 x6 is really the max for a Table Game. The 3x3 seems to work the best for small multiplayer groups unless the scenario has a lot of preplacement of units. I think SJG hit it on the head with the 2x2 mats for 1 vs 1 play. I've also found that the 2x2 mat put on a foam board works well with a Lazy susan under it when space is an issue(can only work from one side of the board)

Yes, the 2x2' and 2'x4' have been working perfectly for 1-on-1 games. And super for conventions where 30" folding tables are common; the 3" safety buffer on each side for elbow room and not knocking minis on the floor works great.
