Episode Info: In this episode we crack open a box of ol’ stogies and see what lies within!  Alex and Jonathan review Cigar Box Battle Mats! The longest-running tabletop wargaming podcast on the planet Mats Being Reviewed Field of Battle #406 PLUSH sized 4x6ft plus Cost = $69 for standard version.  $74 for PLUSH Tundra #129 4x6ft plus Cost = $69 for Standard, $74 for PLUSH Desert #120 4x6ft plus  Cost = $59 Standard, $74 PLUSH Frozen Ruins #201 3x3ft mat  Cost = $55   Sizing 4x6ft plus = approximately 56×76 inches 3x3ft mats = approximately 36×36 inches Customisation Hexes (1, 2, 3, and 4 inch in size) Circular size (60″ i.e. inches) Fleece fabric or PLUSH fabric (i.e. short teddy bear fur) Pros Mats are superbly well made/very high quality item. Lots of variety in style, customization, and design of mats. PLUSH mats are incredibly soft. PLUSH mats add some 3D effect by mussing up the mat a bit. Mats can easily create contoured elevation by placing objects beneath them, only possible because of the print process and the larger mat size. Incredible customer service.  They are responsive to every need. You can wash the mats.  Jonathan has not yet tried this. Cons Mats are made to order resulting in 3-4 weeks from order to delivery. They’re not cheap.  The average 4x6ft plus mat = $69 USD.  PLUSH = $74 USD.  3x3ft = $55 USD, roughly $2.33/square foot for a 4×6.  $2.68/sq foot for 4×6 PLUSH.  $6.11/sq foot for 3ft Bottom Line Buy a Cigar Box Battle mat.  You won’t be disappointed.
