Immerse yourself more fully in the Star Wars universe even as you battle for the fates of billions over vibrant, full-color images of the galaxy’s most iconic locations. Legal for tournament play of both X-Wing™ and Star Wars™: Armada, our 3′ by 3′ Star Wars Playmats are easily portable and made from slip-resistant natural rubber, ensuring that even while your games are packed with drama, there’s no drama for your valuable miniatures.

Don’t let the rusted, light-soaked clouds of the Bespin Playmat lull you into a false complacency. Cloud City was home to some of the most pivotal moments in the Galactic Civil War. Now you can imagine new adventures set against a gorgeous full-color backdrop of Cloud City hovering at the edge of Bespin’s red and orange skies. Race full-throttle through the starlit heavens as you dodge laser blasts and fire your proton torpedoes at enemy starfighters, or deploy your fleet to seize control of Bespin’s valuable supply of tibanna gas.

Immerse yourself more fully in the Star Wars universe even as you battle for the fates of billions over vibrant, full-color images of the galaxy’s most iconic locations. Legal for tournament play of both X-Wing™ and Star Wars™: Armada, our 3′ by 3′ Star Wars Playmats are easily portable and made from slip-resistant natural rubber, ensuring that even while your games are packed with drama, there’s no drama for your valuable miniatures.

Deploy your fleet to the forest moon of Endor, and engage the enemy in an epic collision between capital ships and starfighter squadrons. Evoking the final, climactic chapters of the classic Star Wars trilogy, the Death Star II Playmat makes a perfect backdrop for your biggest and most important battles, reminding you of all that is at stake as the second Death Star looms menacingly in the background!

What’s great about the Death Star II Playmat is that proceeds* will be sent to the families of the construction workers that perished during the Rebel Assault all those years ago. It’s really a great gesture on the part of The Empire and Fantasy Flight Games.

      Me too, Jetsons space magic rocks.

    I know it’s logical, but I can’t get over the backgrounds. I guess I’m more used to thinking of this game as ships ABOVE something as opposed to in front of, or next to something. not sure if that makes sense

    • Severius_Tolluck

      it does, but of course, sapce is 3D, and can be in any angle or facing to a greater massed object!

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Space is a 3-D place, so any angle can and does work. I think they choose the angles they do to make it look more dynamic than a straight top down view.

    • Davor Mackovic

      I agree. This almost looks like it’s aimed for Dropfleet Commander or what ever that game is called.

  • PinkTerror

    I like these a lot, I have the Death Star I, one. I didn’t care for the burnt rubber smell, but then I accidentally spilt bourbon on the death star trench – and now all’s golden.

  • Xodis

    Yeah, I know I’m way behind on the Xwing front….but I’m pretty sure these are needed lol.
