We since so many people seem interested in the game mats add-on we went ahead and came up with a few designs to show everyone.
If people seem to like the direction than we'll likely be proceeding with these.
Though, we'll post another update when/if the add-on becomes available with information on the price point (once we get information back on the weight/added shipping expenses).
The mat size is the same as Magic: The Gathering standard mats: 23-7/8-Inch x 13-1/2-Inch (606.425mm x 342.9mm).
Without further ado,
The first mat idea has space for twelve cards in each the washer and dryer. There is not much room in-between cards spaces to display multiples of the same cards (to indicate if you have pairs, which are worth more points).
The mats should help keep each player's space a lot more visible to all players and more organized so it is easier to tell how many points each player has in their respective washer and dryer.
In the second mat idea there is more space in between cards to place pairs together (and there is more room available if we move the bottom card spot down slightly). Additionally, there is a space at the bottom to place the stack of three face down socks that you play each turn.
Here is a photo of how we normally recommend displaying the cards without mats, which is what I sent Sebastian to work on the mats.
* Face down socks are just to indicate the other socks in the deck that aren't shown here. Also, the two stacks of cards at the very bottom of the photo aren't supposed to be there :p Finally, with the mats players won't need the washer and dryer cards.
We also want to note that these mats will be for each individual player's play area, but there will not be a mat for the center for the table layout (where the draw decks are and the pile of lost socks)
That's all for now!
Thanks so much for supporting Atheris Games! :) We hope that everyone who is interested in the mat add-on like the mat ideas.
