  1. As everyone else here has said, this Chessex megamat is excellent. It’s much better than tiles, which are (a) expensive, (b) unique (your players will start joking about having been in this forest before), and (c) unstable at the table. This mat has enough friction on both sides that it basically sticks to a smooth, flat surface, so you’ll never jostle it out of position. (No guarantees for jostling the minis on top of the mat, of course.) And it’s just the right size to fit on a dining table for 6+ people.A few tips on how to get the most out of this mat:(1) Clean it thoroughly between sessions. I usually give it a once over at the end of each gaming session, but then I take it home and clean it again (wet paper towels are sufficient). You’d be surprised how much ink can stay in the mat’s fibers even though it’s not visible.(2) If you must store it rolled up, roll it so that the side you use (squares or hexes) is on the outside. That way, when you unroll it at the table, the curl goes downward and into the table, rather than upward away from the table. This makes it easier to flatten.(3) These Expo wet-erase markers (Expo Vis-A-Vis Wet Erase Markers, 8 Colored Markers (16078)) work great on the mat, and you get twice as many colors for less than an additional $2 compared to the Chessex brand proprietary markers (Chessex Role Playing Play Mat Marking Pen: (4 Pack) Staedtler Lumocolor Water Based Overhead Projection Markers). (I remember reading some reviews of the Chessex markers saying that their red marker left permanent marks in the mat. I can’t confirm that personally, but I can confirm personally that none of the Expo markers have left permanent marks. Of course, I always wash the mats off immediately after our gaming sessions, but our sessions can go 5 hours…)(4) If, as in my case, your mat does not live in the same place where your gaming sessions occur, I strongly recommend picking up a carrying tube. I just picked up an Alvin Ice Tube 37″ (for example, Alvin Ice Tube 37 Inch Blue) for this purpose, and it’s great. Besides allowing me to throw away the flimsy and battered thin plastic sleeve in which the mat was originally mailed to me, the tube is also fairly wide in diameter (2.75 inches interior), which means the mat doesn’t have to stay so tightly coiled up in storage.Game on!

  2. This is such a great battle mat. There is just nothing like it. I own both sizes. I just recently purchased the larger size but have owned the smaller one for years. My DM also used one that is really old. The edges are fraying a bit, but other than that it is 100% usable. As long as you are careful not to leave anything on there too long it does not stain easy. I have even accidentally used sharpie on it and was able to remove it with a good bit of work. From what I’ve been told wet-erase works better for not staining. I’ve always used wet-erase and never had a problem.I attached a photo for a comparison between the two. I included a spray bottle and marker for scale. I would recommend the bigger one if you have the space but if you don’t the smaller one is still very useful.The bigger one is 34 1/2in x 48inThe smaller one is 26 in x 23 1/2 in

  3. The mat is great, don’t see any of the streaks some people complained about, but as many others have noted the mat will arrive rolled and probably flattened a bit. This will cause some wavyness but I was able to remove about 90% of the waves by stretching the mat out and leaving it under books with a few lbs of weight on top of each for a few hours. After that I stretched it out and heated it for about an hour with a hair dryer, stretching it out as it warmed up. All in all if you’re willing to put some elbow grease into it you will end up with a completely usable mat within 5 or so hours.The quality of the mat itself is great just like I expected. This is the sort of thing that I fully expect to last the average GM many many years unless it is destroyed by a pet or something of that manner. Stay away from dry erase and wipe it down after your session ends to avoid staining, although my research suggests that virtually any stains can be removed with hard scrubbing so long as you take care not to scrub the grid away.Out of curiosity I made three sets of inch long marks with every color of the Vis-a-vis wet erase combo pack and left them on the mat for different legnths of time before wiping them away to see what if anything would stain.After 24 hours all marks (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, and Black) wiped away easily leaving no stains.After 3 days all marks other than purple wiped away easily. After about 10 seconds of scrubbing with water and a paper towel i was able to remove the mark.After 7 days purple and blue left marks, but were still easy to remove within a minute using only water.EDIT: Review dropped form 5 to 4 stars.This is due to there being two very small (maybe 1cmx2cm) areas that i have found on the mat that stain immediately and permanently upon use. This may be due to the process by which the mat is created such as these small spots not receiving a chemical wash that they were supposed to, or perhaps they were scratched in the factory or while being packaged. These spots are easy to work around once you know they exist but there is no way to locate them other than drawing over them and wondering why that one spot won’t erase.This is absolutely still the mat I recommend that you purchase since it still blows all the competition away.

  4. I would not recommend, I will be looking for a replacement soon. This is a paperback type mat and should not cost so much. I feel like the no crease gimmick is not worth using the lower quality mat, especially when you add in the fact that the mat still needs about an hour to get ready to use after it comes out of rolled up storage. Personally I would prefer a higher quality even if it had creases than this lower quality mat. I see lots of people posting some great reviews for this mat, and I read one person who felt it was OK and took issue with the fact that the mat had to be rolled up backwards and then flattened with a book for about 30 minutes, bringing up the total prep time to close to an hour. I am fine with prep time and I am fine with having to plan ahead and prepare for game night. My complaints are with the quality of the mat vs the price. This mat does not feel like a $22.00 product, I would put it more in the range of $12.00, so the review is given with the normal price point. The finish of the mat does not cover the edges. When we consider the fact that the flattening instructions say to roll up backwards and use rubber bands (not included, hope you get the news paper) to hold it that way for 30 minutes this makes me worry that the finish will be coming off quickly. While we are on the directions for flattening, my mat was rolled up backwards, left for 30 minutes and flattened with books and I still had some ripples in the mat. I left books on the mat overnight, but it still has a slight curve in the mat. Not a huge issue, but again negating the no crease selling point since my minis can go on that side of the mat without tipping over. Overall I am a bit disappoint with this mat, it feels very cheep and I do not feel like it delivers on the selling points that I purchased it for. This mat will be my back up mat within a month. Maybe the hex side will serve as a space combat mat for my first few games of Starfinder while I wait for more hex based space maps to come out, but I don’t see myself using this mat for any longer that I must.The bottom line: If you buy this mat, I hope you get it on sale, 12 bucks would be a good price point for the quality of the mat. The best recommendation I can give is save up a bit more and get something of better quality.

  5. My 3yr old loves to makes Cities and drive her cars all around her city. We use to make cities using the road tape which was fine but we went through a lot of road tape and when it cleanup time we’d toss the tape. Having to remake the city each time is not ideal because kids don’t have the best attention spans. This mat is perfect for making her Cities because we can clean-up with the city still in tact, easily change pieces of it or make a whole new city. It’s been fun actually playing cars in the city instead of spending so much time making a city and then when your city is done so is your kid.We also played tic tac toe & practiced her letters on the other side of the Mat.It’s been a multi-purpose mat used for fun & as an educational tool in our home 🙂

  6. I love using this dry erase gameboard. It is a perfect size to fit on a table and folds up to a easy to carry size with a nice box that has some room for folders, dice and so forth. Impressive quality and I like that it has both hex and square grids…so works for a range of miniatures and games.

  7. This thing has such a good weight to it. It doesn’t have parts of it that fly up in the air. Unfortunately it is a little bulky but I’ve used that in order to put some of my miniatures and my screen inside of the box with it. I love that it comes with a marker and an eraser and that the two sides are different. It allows me to run a good grid that I can have the perimeter set up going into a game on one side and then have the encounters on the other side with the hex spaces. Definitely a good quality that seems like it will last me as long as I need for it to.

  8. This was an excellent purchase, although I wish it could fold into the same size as a D&D book. It is a little delicate though, so as long as you’re not flinging it across the room, you should be ok. The extra dice and dry erase set are great added values.Pro tip, the board tends to get stuck inside the box, so I use a piece of tape on one of the corners as a pull tab.

  9. So first and foremost…it does what it’s supposed to do. You can draw on it…you can erase said drawings. Done. So it’s not a complete waste of money. The material it’s made out of, however, is a tad rigid for it to be rolled up. The instructions detail out a 30 minute (minimum) process for flattening it out and you have to redo this every single time you use it, unless you can just leave it flat all the time and never re-roll it. It’s too flimsy to transport that way so I always re-roll it and then have to resume the flattening process with each use.Also, in the process of constantly rolling and re-rolling, the edges of the mat have already begun to fray which makes me worried that it won’t actually survive for very long unless I can find a way to constantly leave it unrolled. I’ve only used it once and already seeing damage from having to take it in/out of packing twice.So…it works and for the price it does the trick…but if you have some money to spend I’d try to find a product with a better material.
