Big Book of Battle Mats

Now this is one of the coolest gaming ideas I’ve seen in a long while.  Its an A4 size book of laminated battle mats.  Some 58 mats in all – though most of them are meant to be used together,  so more like 29-ish unique maps.

This helps solve a problem I’d been pondering with the Long Winter Campaign (yeah, still working on it – it’ll be a reality some day!).  I didn’t want to stop the action to hand-draw encounter maps, so I’d been slowly collecting old 4E D&D maps and Pathfinder flip-mats.  However, carrying around all those maps and mats would be rather bulky, and sorting through them kind of a hassle.

But with this book, just drop it down on the table and turn it to the appropriate mat.  BAM!  Done.

Roll initiative!

Now, you might say those maps are a bit small for many encounters, and I’d agree with you.  Fortunately, this company is currently doing a Kickstarter for larger A3 size (11.7 x 16.5 inches) book.  They’re also putting together a sci-fi book of battle mats.  Win-win, as far as I’m concerned.  So, yeah, I backed it.

If you want to buy the current book, you can order it here.

If you want to check out their Kickstarter, you can find it here.

Cheers!
