This may be a dumb question but...if we talk about a "map"...are these actually real game boards or are they more like paper maps? I assumed it was a board but sometimes I am not sure!
The basic game comes with a fullsize mounted board. The expansion comes with a fullsize mounted board.
The uber-deep-space map is ordered separately through a third party printer and has whatever characteristics or gloss or finishes or framing you pay for... but is generally a poster.
