Boldly going where no game mat has gone before…

Battlefield in a Box Boldly going where no game mat has gone before…!
We share an update on the new Space themed Game Mats

Last year we announced our intention to make a series of printed space mats. These would be similar to our D&D mats, made of durable vinyl that could marked using wet erase markers. We wanted to produce something that was suitable for any sort of space gaming, rather than any one system in particular - mainly because like most gamers we have so many different rule sets we like to play!)

Since then we have received our first production samples and some lucky people have even managed to get their hands on some thanks to an earlier than expected shipment to the US.

One of the team even snuck some of them out of the office over one weekend to an X-Wing Kessel Run Event.

Coming up next is a set of Asteroids, after all when you have a nice space mat and a nicely painted fleet of ships, you need to fly past something a little more interesting than a cardboard counter!

The first designs of the Space Mats will officially start shipping later this month, with different designs to follow over the course of the year, whilst the Asteroids will be on sale soon after.

We will be looking to continue and expand the range over time with a variety of scenic items to place on the Mats, as well as varying sizes of Mats.
