A mat with a landscape on it for WWI will also come soon.

In the meantime I'd suggest avoid glass tables. Playing on a tabecloth or a carpet works fine. Usually even a wood table or anyway a not too polished surface is fine enough.

Cut a tiny square of kitchen plastic wrap and stick it on the back of the plane cards. It won't harm them but will keep them from spinning while you are putting a maneuver card down.

Yes! That's exactly what I have wanted. I almost plunked my money down here: http://www.hotzmats.com/mat_euro_usa_cont_tube.html
But now I'll wait and see what you come up with.
Thanks!

It seems like a considerable issue to me, the fact that the cards move around a lot.

I found the same. The solution is simple: use a felt playing surface. It's a big improvement, solves the sliding problems, and has the additional advantage that you can also use it for other games. It's relatively inexpensive from most fabric stores. I use a felt Roll-O-Puzz puzzle mat, which works equally well.



For a previous discussion on this problem and more suggestions, see this thread:
