Maybe this isn't the right place, but figured this way everyone would know. What are the player mats going to be? Kind of like mini game boards, or just a laminated cardstock type of material? Thanks.

Hey Bruce,

They are identical to the Eclipse player mats. We share the same printer and spec'ed the exact same material. They're glossy and high-quality.

Thanks for the reply. Now I'll just have to find an Eclipse mat to figure out what it is.

So they are not printed on a stiff cardboard-like material then, right? It looks to me like it's a little thicker than normal paper. So is it fair to say that the mats have about the same rigidity as 110 lb card stock? (I do understand that the quality is much better, I just would like to obtain a feeling of what the piece will feel like when I play with it and I hope that it won't be too easy to bend it and create undesired creases on the mat.)

I think it is thicker than 110lb. card stock but yes, you have the right idea. I don't think it could be bent in a way that impacted the aesthetics unless it was really abused. It has a snap to it that card stock does not.
