What we do - Cigar Box Battle Mats are high quality, fleece terrain mats created by gamers for gamers. They fold up, don't wrinkle, travel light (i.e. just throw them in your backpack), are washable, and allow you to set up great looking games in minutes!
Cigar Box Battle Mats are professionally illustrated and will make your gaming table come alive! They are specifically designed to allow gamers to set up great looking games quickly for club night, at conventions or at home with friends.
Do you like rolling hills? Just place anything underneath the mats to create scenic, rolling hills (we use styrofoam, towels, and/or small bean bags), place the mat on your game table, and layer with buildings and terrain! It's just that easy! You will be rolling dice in minutes!
We offer mats with just a base color design that you can layer with your own roads, woods and streams, and we offer the other extreme with mats that have roads, woods, and stream sprinted on them for even faster set up! The choice is yours!
Size - The mats measure over 6 feet x 4 feet (approx. 77" x 59"), which gives you extra room on a standard 6'x4' table to compensate for the slight elevation changes of the hills and for some overhang. That's why we call them "6'x4' plus".
Kickstarter - We need your help! Simply put - our goal is to fund the artwork and printing costs for the new stretch goal designs included in the Kickstarter, while offering the unique opportunity to select any of the designs listed below to be assigned to either side of a double-sided battle mat! That's two designs of your choice on a single battle mat!
Material - For the Kickstarter we are using a new premium variety of fleece we call Satin! We've looked globally for:
- the highest quality, premium material
- that will print with the highest resolution
- look the best on the table-top
- play the best, and
- travel and store the best
- .... and we have found it!
Our New Premium Satin Fleece has a bit of a textured, plush, fuzzy feel to the fleece, and allows us to print with the highest level of resolution and detail we've ever been able to achieve! Satin has a natural glossy look to it that looks great, is BOLD, BRIGHT and will really allow your table top to SHINE!
Please be sure to check out our pictures, video and social media posts to see how great the new Satin mats look!
Value - these are high quality, professionally designed and printed terrain mats. You can choose from almost our entire catalog of classic designs, and any of the unlocked new designs and stretch goals to create the custom double sided mat that works best for the games you play! That's right! You get to selet the designs you want printed on your mats! Double Sided is double value!
How about a desert design on one side and sea on the other? You got it! Or how about green fields on one side and space frontier on the other side - you got it! The options are almost limitless! The mats start at $99 plus shipping for one double sided mat, with quantity discounts for the more you order. This is our best value ever!
Invite all your gaming fiends, club mates and local tournament to combine an order and save on the price per mat as well as splitting the shipping cost.
Stretch goals - please check out our new designs at the bottom of this page! These designs will become unlocked and available as purchasable pledge options when we reach each stretch goal dollar amount!
Note to international customers: International shipping is unfortunately expensive and we have no control over this. Cigar Box Battle mats are heavy and bulky. All orders will ship from our warehouse in Atlanta, GA, USA. Any import duties, taxes, etc will be the responsibility of the buyer.
We will ship to any country in the world, and all packages will be shipped with tracking.
Please note that we can also arrange for pledges larger than 20 mats. Please pledge at the 20 mat level and we can add on and invoice additional mats and shipping via PayPal at the conclusion of the Kickstarter.
Thank you for your support and good gaming!
