The problem most players have with the wafer-thin map tiles is "slippage"; a gust of wind or a rogue sleeve can send the zombie infested town hither and thither about the gaming table.

My remedy was to spend an evening with the following kit:

d10-1Steel ruler
d10-2Craft scalpel
d10-3Pritt stick
d10-4Cutting surface
d10-58x sheets of hard A4 card, 2mm thick
d10-62x sets of Zombies!!! map tiles
d10-7black paint or ink



With the card carefully cut to measure, adhere map tiles to both faces of the card - so that you have a proper front and back. Then, ink the edges of all the tiles black, to give the job a slick finish.

Viola, you will now have, after one evening's work, a weighty set of tiles - that "feel" good in hand.

we avoid the slippage by using a rubber shelving mat. Kind of like Shelf Paper but made of rubber with little holes in it. They stick nice and you don't have to buy 2 of every set.

Sounds like a great idea.

BTW, I only did the basic set - we don't use the expansion tiles any more (except subway stations).
