I have the original SPI version. It is 17" X 21".

EDIT: I thought it was 17" X 22" also which was standard SPI quad game map size. But I actually measured it and it's really 17" X 21".

My original SPI S&T is 17x21

Folio & Designer's Edition maps are 17x22

the S&T shorted us a lot of border down by the Battle for Germany game title

Kim, That's interesting, thanks for the info. I couldn't understand why it was 21" when I was sure that 22" was the standard SPI folio size. Now I know that SPI screwed me out of an inch. Well, at least I never had a lifetime subscription to S&T.

If you hadn't mentioned the 17x21 I would have never looked and measured all three version's

Gee,Now I'll have to go and look at the other S&T folio size games and their cardstock folder folio/Designer's edition's to see if any more are off in size

Brietenfeld might just be another

Kim,

It does seem odd that they would have done two different sizes. Maybe it had to do with how the map folded and fit into the magazine. Maybe that extra inch was too much.
