About

Live coverage of Magic: The Gathering events are growing in popularity from the online streamers to brick-and-mortar stores broadcasting game nights. But trading card games can get messy. How do you keep things clean for best presentation, whether you are on camera or just playing on the kitchen table? Slaymats is the first playmat dedicated to recreating the common zones in trading card games for players on a tabletop. Plus, the design allows for two to be used face-to-face to allow for a super clean and easy to follow gaming area.  

Slaymats was started by Chris Anticoli of Newton, NJ in late 2013. Being an avid Magic: the Gathering player, he realized there was a need for a new type of playmat on the market – one that made board states cleaner, easier to distinguish and more organized. Inspired by the zoned mats from early Pro Tour and Grand Prix coverage, he set out to create a new playmat that broke the mold of the current market full of busy art that can sometimes leave your board state looking messy. The design is simple. Areas are segmented to represent different zones on the game board. And, to maximize simplicity, the zones are not labeled allowing the use of a Slaymat in many current or future card games. Use it for War, Poker, anything! It is also simple enough that those who love getting their battle blankets signed or drawn on can do so. We’d love to see your creations!

Features:

  • 24" x 14" x 1/16" premium rubber playmat. These are the same or better quality from the major competitors! These are standard sized, so rest assured they will fit in ALL current playmat tubes and accessories.
  • Premium fabric print. After rigorous testing, our product has shown durability in areas where others have failed. Our product has premium fabric printing that withstands the test of time both in the printing and also the fabric remaining adhered to the rubber. This has been an area where others have failed.
