Playmats and their uses

Post by stefien on Thu Feb 12, 2015 12:10 pm

After playing the game a few times I can definitely see the appeal of the playmats. There's a lot of stuff happening all over the table! I was wondering if anyone had the playmats and if so a) what their thoughts were on them on using them with the game and b) do they fold up in any sort of way to go into the box with the game?

Thanks!

I bought all 4 different sets of play mats. The art work alone was totally worth it.

They do not fit into the box at all, however I have used a custom made insert to make the sleeved versions of the cards fit. However that didn't change the fact that they will not fit into the box.

The mats are large and the artwork is gorgeous on them. Clear and bright but not distracting! They do come with cardboard storage tubes, well the ones I bought at my game shoppe did. I imagine you could fit 4 playmats total into one tube with some super tight wrapping.

As far as using them with the game, the store I demo at has sold out of the games and the playmats twice now. Everyone who uses them loves them and they add just that much more to the game. They are large enough to hold everything that is going on and give you spots to show cards played and roll your dice and what not.

So my personal opinion is yes, its worth it to me. I'm a sucker for the art alone but they are very useful when playing. Smile

International playmats finished going out a few days ago and will take 2-3 weeks to arrive.

Does anyone know if the playmats are or will be available through Amazon.com as well? I've got a couple of gift cards to burn and they might be my ticket to getting into this whole Fallen scene.

@Uncle: That's me struggling to get Amazon's system to accept all 4 playmat items. Amazon is great out front, but behind the scenes, I want to smash their inventory system with a +3 Sword of JustMakeItWork!

@Jonsher: We should have those bundles up there. I'm trying to get the items up for you, but the system is being very fussy. It may take about a week for this to get sorted out when my Amazon "guy" gets back to make the items visible.

Hi Tom. Any news on Amazon accepting the other playmats? I'd love to get the "Ruins" set.

Hi Niddi,

We just spoke with Amazon today. The issue is a problem within their system that wont let us update the item listings. The word is that their "engineers are looking into it". No ETA yet. But we'll keep on them.

Hi Tom,

I'll have the money next week to order a set of playmats. I'd like to get the "Chaos" set but since the issue on Amazon hasn't been resolved yet, I was wondering if I order them directly from the Watchtower online store does the price include free shipping?

The note on the website before you enter the store says free shipping (in the U.S.) "on the game of Fallen" but I wasn't sure if that covered the playmats or not?

Thanks!

Sorry for the Bump. I'm planning to buy a playmat this week and was hoping someone might be able to tell me if the shipping for the playmat's is free if ordered from WatchTowers online store?

Thanks!

That's weird. I posted a nice response to this several days ago, but it's not here. I wonder where the heck that post ended up. Lost in the nethers. Sorry about that.

In short:

No word from Amazon about the fix, as my tech guy is getting married in Japan for the last few weeks.

My understanding was that ONLY the core game had free shipping in the US. However, when I go to our online store right now and checkout with just playmats, I show the shipping free for my destination. So you might take a quick look and see if you get lucky. In any event, I don't think the shipping for the playmats is very high as they are bundled up in a nice tube ready to have a label slapped on them and sent out.

Thanks Tom! I went ahead and ordered the playmats from your online store and everything went fine and I did get free shipping Very Happy . I hope you guys keep them around. Once the multiplayer version comes out I may want to get another set.
