I think this is the last of them:

Given the interest in the miniatures what I would buy is maps with larger hexes for play with miniatures.

I suggest 2 inches, because the current designs would fit on a four-by-four mat.

They could be printed on mouse-mat material, which can be rolled.

It would be a nice extra product.

I'd love to see the maps in mouse-mat material. It could also be a way to satisfy at least some folks who want individual maps.

...you know, if they're going to be 4' anyway, I'd also be down with actual printed rugs, like those town rugs for toy cars. The hex numbers won't be legible, but as long as I can make out the hex sides and terrain, I'll do my entire apartment with them. I am not even kidding.

My wife would kill me if I even suggested it, but at the same time I have to admit that's a brilliant idea. Just imagine, wall-to-wall hexes...

I'd buy mouse pad maps as well. I have the two that were offered for "Fleet Commander: Genesis" and they are a great addition for that game.

Imagine a roll up orange map of about 30" width such that it fits the standard cafeteria style table used in many game stores.

Many companies like the recent Corsair KS for DVG make the neoprene playmats a buy-in option and depending on some actions like the last one throw it in as an extra (The game had to fund in under a day). So this isn't something new but it is something seemly desirable by wargamers

These are showing as sold out as of today, so I hope everyone got what they needed! (I did; thanks, Phil.)
