From the release:
Space may be the final frontier, and there may be galaxies far far away, but that does not mean that your models should be forced to play on an old table cloth when instead you can have high quality printed vinyl Game Mat instead.
These 36" by 36" mats are printed using the same technology as our D&D range and will stand up to years of gaming. The mat lies flat for ease of play and is sold in sturdy polycarbonate tube for easy storage and transport and may be marked with wet-erase markers.
Our first two releases will be the Space Station Game Mat and the Space Game Mat.
These Game Mats are available in the online store for pre-order now and will ship early 2013 (don't worry, you will not be charged until the Mats are instock and ready for shipping!).
