This is such a great idea! My husband was delighted to get this for Christmas and couldn't wait to load it with his customized pages of charts, lists, ect.

Unfortunately, when he took it out of it's wrapper and opened it for the very first time, the plastic cracked badly at one of the hinges. Such a disappointment! Of course I can, and will, return it for a new one. A pain in the neck, but one I'll put up with for the sake of such a useful, helpful tool for my favorite gamemaster. This would have been a 5-star review if not for that problem.

By the way, here's a tip for anyone having trouble inserting paper smoothly into the plastic sleeves. Back your paper with a sheet of cardstock, or even a piece cut from a cereal box to the same size as your paper. Insert both together, then carefully pull out the heavier piece. Keep it handy, you can use it over and over again whenever you want to change what's in a sleeve.

Intended for the Savage Worlds line of games, but applicable to any RPG, this product resembles three 3-ring binder (UK: Two Ring binder) covers fastened together in landscape orientation.

The screen is made from thick card, of the sort found backing the better legal pads, which is sandwiched inside a black vinyl cover and welded at the edges and hinges, and then a clear layer of plastic is welded to that to form pockets on each side of each panel.

Into these pockets you can slide anything you want (with a bit of fiddling). Savage Worlds users can make use of a download on the Pinnacle Website to fill out the GM side for generic Savage Worlds games. I did. I won't be using the other side, probably, because I rarely use a trad GM/screen/Player set-up with SW, preferring to seat everyone "in the round". I will use my screen as a stand-up reference table, facing everyone.

Because the same methods and materials are used as have been used to make ring binders since I was a kid (in the UK), one can expect the hinges to eventually fail with heavy use just as they did on the binders. However, that sad event is off in some half-imagined future for most of us, and you should get years of use from this screen.

As one infuriated reviewer has mentioned, the sizing is for US "Legal" paper which is different to A4. Though this would of course be annoying to discover, it should be the work of minutes to resize your printout so you can trim European paper to fit.

I'm going to go ahead and say that any GM that uses a screen should buy this now. Seriously. I mean it when I say I wish I had one years ago. It's weird to me that nobody, including myself, thought of this sooner. Anyone that's used notebooks with the clear plastic pockets on the outside knows exactly what this is: The mutant love-child of a GM screen and a vinyl notebook! It is precisely that. No rings, an extra cover panel, and all pockets all the time!

A usage recommendation I have is to print any player-facing information large enough for your grandmother (borrow one if you don't have one) to read without her glasses, so your players can use it without a spyglass. It's only useful if they can read it from their seats. I also keep a list of known NPCs, place names, etc on one of the player-facing panels. When you go a month between gaming sessions, who can remember the blacksmith's name or the tavern last session ended in?

One caveat... I would avoid storing printouts in it for long periods of time. I would expect the ink of photocopies or printouts to adhere to the plastic and mark it up when you remove the sheets. I haven't had it happen yet, but I have had probably a dozen GM notebooks ruined by that over the past 30 years of running games.

PROS:
- It's the perfect size. Since it's made for 8"x11" pages (Letter size not Legal size, as some have said) turned sideways, you can see over it well better than traditional taller screens. WAY less having to stand up to see what's going on as players move their miniatures around on the battle mat. Horizontally, it's also the perfect size, in my opinion. Just the right amount of room behind it for all my secret stuff.

Why didn't we always have our screens in landscape? It's wider than most because of this and so screens off your area better and you really can see over the screen. I used to sit on a stool during games for this purpose and no longer have to. The fact that you can customize the inside and the outside for any RPG system is great. You can even insert different inspirational artwork specific to that gaming session.

Good stuff!!

This product is something that anyone GMing a game would want, as it crosses system borders, and is flat-out awesome. I'm currently using it for a Savage Worlds Warhammer game, and it looks very nice with the rules on the inside, pretty (well, pretty grim) Warhammer pictures on the outside, and even a map, which everyone can see! It's a very useful way to give your players a cheat-sheet, map, or handout without having the 'hey, lemmie see that!' pass-around game getting distracting.

However, this screen does have its faults...

One: Too expensive. Seriously, what's up with the price?

Two: Snug, snug fit. Like others mentioned, standard paper will fit, but it takes some fiddling to get it in there. I cut the white borders off of mine by about a centimeter or so, and they went in fine, but without that small cut getting them in was a wriggling, scrunching, horrible mess that left me annoyed. The idea another reviewer had with the cardstock is good, and likely the best way to go about inserting pages that you don't want to trim a little.

Overall, good product, just pricey for what it is.
