This two-sided plastic laminated 24" x 36" dry-erase double sided battlemat has over 800 1" squares on each side, or about 40,000 square feet in scale (1":5'). Many types of markers are usable on this mat and will clean right off with the included eraser and wipes. Unlike vinyl mats, never worry about ruining your mat because a dry-erase or permanent marker was used by mistake. Actually, you may choose to use Sharpies due to the great variety of colors and quite brilliant results you can get with them. This is a great advantage to a game master who wants to draw up detailed landscapes or dungeon layouts before the game. No worry either about accidentally erasing your drawing before or during the game! Useful for Dungeons and Dragons, Star Wars, GURPs, Munchkin, Frag, Warhammer and other miniatures combat mapping.
Included with the mat are three different colored dry-erase markers and one eraser. Use a different color to draw walls, doors, stairs, area affects from spells, etc. Also included is a set of instructions for use, care, and maintenance and a set of cleaning wipes. Please note that the surfaces of these mats are intended to hold dry-erase ink better than a typical whiteboard so that your drawings will be more resistant to the movement of minis or a casual finger swipe. This also means that the mat is slightly more resistant to intended erasing, but with the included eraser and care instructions, all markings should clean right off.
