Amazon.com.au:Customer reviews: RPG Battle Game Mat - 2 Pack Dry Erase Double Sided 36" x 24" (4 Terrains) + 4 Dry Erase Markers + 1 Eraser + 7pc Polyhedral Dice Set - Large Table Top Role Playing Map for Starters and Masters
The textures are great. They have excellent detail without being too noisy, making them very easy to use for a variety of situations without the background getting old. I use my own pens (but I'm very fussy about pens) because I had to draw a few lines twice whenever using the pens that came with the mats, but that's not a big issue. The dice are a great touch :)
If you're tossing up between this set and the other, I'd recommend this one. There are no significant flaws with these ones, but the wood one from the other set has gridlines in line with the wooden planks, making the gridlines nearly impossible to see. All the other ones are fine, and even with the wood one I'm planning to use a wet-erase marker to mark out little dots at grid intersections to help as it's a beautiful mat otherwise.
These things are great! Much simpler to draw/erase than a vinyl mat and way cheaper. It can be hard to keep laminated paper mats like these flat but the plastic rails included here solve that problem. The included dice, markers and eraser are a nice bonus too.
My only minor complaint is the rolled lip of the storage tube makes it almost impossible to get the mats out. I cut that off with some scissors and it works much better now.
Really loving this mat, it's just right for our gaming sessions. As expected a few of the dry erase markers didn't work (has anyone ever had markers that survived storage and shipping?) but everything else was great, the dice are a nice addition also.
at the risk of sounding generic, it came early and was exactly as described. very good quality and the markers erase like pasta sauce on an Italians plate. alot of these mats end up leaving smudges but these shiny bois. very happy.
