This is the mat that you buy and then take with you to any RPG session you attend, unless someone there already owns one. You draw on it, set tiles on it, play with miniatures or tokens, roll it up and put it away. You practically forget it's an essential part of your DM stuff collection, until the day you've left it at home by mistake. Over a decade later, you realize it has survived more abuse and wear than every piece of furniture in your house. It's easy to forget to write a glowing review of a product that isn't terribly flashy and stays with you forever and ever -- if I wasn't about to buy a second one of these to permanently install on a table, I wouldn't have thought to pop in here and 5-star it either.

Granted, it's just a vinyl mat with squares and hex-marks. But this is exactly everything you could possibly want from a vinyl mat with squares and hex-marks. The alternatives for sale (notably including products by the sorta awful "Role 4 Initiative") are just overpriced big sheets of laminated paper, which sound nice at first (you can use Sharpies!) but tend to crinkle when rolled up (and will never ever lay flat again). Rather than buy a $20 gigantic laminate that Kinko's could probably create for a third the cost, buy this mat. And if you remember to, years and years later, come back and write a 5-star review about how durable and useful it was. :)

(Oh, and in the event of stains, just google for how to clean vinyl. We've cleaned a wider variety of gunk off this mat than it would be possible to clean out of carpet. Soda, condiments, dust from bags of chips, blood from a nosebleed, permanent marker, glue, paint used to paint miniatures, paint used to paint walls, coffee, and a million things I'm forgetting.

This battlemat is a must have supplement for DMs/GMs that appreciate aesthetics. The aged parchment background lends a time period atmosphere to environments, immersing players in a more authentic role-playing experience.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the mat did come severely creased, but a night beneath a few hardcovered atlases fixed it perfectly. The mat wipes clean after each use, in my experience, up to a week after being drawn on. I store it in a thick, cardboard tube, along with other vinyl battlemats of various shapes and sizes.

I highly recommend this mat, both for the discerning and pragmatic DM/GM; while visually pleasing, it also serves a very practical purpose.

Previously in my Role-playing games, we always used Star Wars Miniatures maps no matter what the setting. Unless it was one of those time where I set up terrain and we used inches instead of squares. It was fun, but we had to use the same maps for many different things, and the maps were always exactly the same.

Now, using a set of wet-erase markers, I can just sketch a quick map, add in any important details (Cover, computers, equipment, all that fun stuff) with another color or two, and voila! A different map.

I will point out for other potential buyers the mat came with a "Care & Feeding" sheet (That's right, care and FEEDING. Weird, huh?) that says NOT TO USE DRY ERASE.
DRY ERASE can stain it. Use only water-soluble pens, it says.

Came folded and extremely creased, but several hours under heavy books took care of that. Storing it in the original package tube. Using colored Vis-A-Vis wet erase markers and a water/detergent solution with paper towels to erase. Warm colors like red tend to stain, but the water/detergent handles that well.

I was actually pleasantly surprised by the durability of this mat. I was expecting something maybe a bit more flimsy, but this is made of good quality solid thick vinyl that lies perfectly flat. If you're looking for a mat for playing miniatures I'd probably recommend the larger mat, but for rpg use, this mat will cover pretty much all but the most epic battles while also leaving table space for books. Having it made for wet-erase markers is a great feature as they won't smudge as readily as dry-erase would. Great product.

so i just got into DnD 4e and i've been reading up on being a DM. now at the time i was investing in the tiles that WoTC came out with, but i'm just spending money. then when i bought the modules adventures they didn't have the published maps with them so it left me confused and thinking 'how can i use those dungeons if i don't have the tiles or maps?' then i saw this battle map here and thought i give it a try since i read a lot of good reviews about it. when it came i felt the quality of it, really great look and i also bought the wet markers it came with since the mat is made of vinyl. USE wet eraser markers not dry because with wet you can wipe it clean with a wet cloth and use it again with dry its permanent. i'm now gonna buy the mega mat as well which is about 2ft by a 1 1/2 since i bought 2 of these which is worth it but a bigger one will sever better especially if you don't want the hassle of erasing and drawing a new area because you don't have enough room. its one side square and the other hex so if you're looking for double sided squares you'll be disappointed, but this will last you for a long time and save you money in the long run as well and as a DM i'm more prepared to run my dungeons and the hex you can use for other Role Playing games.

overall a great buy and you'll be happy that you bought it too, i know i am. also DON'T fold it roll it because it'll leave creases that'll be hard to remove. and like i said if you you're looking for the double sided square on this one you'll be disappointed but it's worth buying.
