Hi guys,

I am searching for games with cloth/fabric components (other than bags and non-essential parts of the package, e.g. Carcassonne is a no-go), games in which the cloth/fabric components are part of the play itself...

Do you know of any?

Viking fury (renamed Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga) used to come with a tea-towel board

The original release of Viking Fury (re-released as Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga) by the Ragnar Brothers had a cloth map.



Edit: Curse my metal body, I wasn't fast enough.

Polarity wouldn't work well without the cloth playing mat.

Honeypot is a small press strategy game with a cloth board.

Searching geeklists for "cloth", I found:
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/54977/games-with-cloth-or-...
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/9979/soft-boards

Also Looney Labs sells a cloth chessboard that can be used for many of their pyramid games.

Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

I printed some test versions of my game's playmats on canvas 'paper' using an inkjet and they looked absolutely brill. The colours stayed very vibrant. I even toyed with the idea of sticking with it for that 'beach towel' look to the game - maybe for a special edition?

I don't know of any other games that use fabric, but I also used to love getting commodore 64 adventures with big cloth (tea-towel) maps to pore over while travelling on screen...

I do think there's an opportunity here to add theme through fabric!

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World has a cloth game board. While the game is not much in terms of depth or complexity, the bits are nice and the game looks cool setup on the coffee table, making for a good conversation piece.

I made a cloth game board for En Garde so that it is more portable. Just a strip of felt with lines on it really...

Awful game, but Eagle Kingdoms qualifies.

One of the editions of Pirateer came with a felted non-woven fabric map instead of a board. That version was packaged in a metal can.

Not my picture, but that is the same edition I have.

But of course it was really the same game as the versions that had a map board in a box instead. I haven't seen many games where there is a critical game component made of fabric other than a map, or of course a fabric bag. And a cloth map doesn't really change game play compared to a board, or a paper map. It does change the aesthetic quality of the game.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

There's a very similar Geeklist that is currently up to 4 pages, which mentions a lot of the same games:

Games with Cloth or Vinyl Roll-Up Playing Boards/Mats

A version of Dread Pirate I used to have had a cloth map as the board. It was a Back Porch game as I recall. I don't know what happened to my copy, it was lost in the last couple moves. Very sad because its a cool game with neat components.
