A dungeon filled with insidious traps, a magnificent imperial throne room, the citadel of an immortal tyrant—the possibilities for adventure are endless with Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Basic.

Appropriate for use with any roleplaying game, this invaluable gaming accessory presents two subtle textures—smooth stone and fine dirt—providing Game Masters a blank canvas on which to create any dungeon, battleground, and adventure set piece they desire.

A special coating on each Flip-Mat allows you to use wet erase, dry erase, AND permanent markers with ease! Removing permanent ink is easy—simply trace over any permanent mark with a dry erase marker, wait 10 seconds, then wipe off both marks with a dry cloth or paper towel.

  • 24" × 30" mat
  • Folds to 8" × 10"
  • 1" squares on each side

Don’t feel like you always have to run your game in someone else’s world. With Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Basic, the setting of your next adventure is wherever you can imagine.

Absolutely Fantastic


I bought two of these back in 2009. Today they are still holding up in the same condition we had them in back then. They have survived two sessions a week, random friends borrowing them, spills, markers, and children. I highly suggest them.

The place to start


If you're only buying one flip-mat, buy this. Lots of blank real estate, accepts pretty much any pen, folds down to 8" x 10". What's not to love?

While it's true some of the older products in the line had a blank side, that practice has come to an end, meaning this is your best option if you just want a portable, erasable play space. I'd suggest getting two, as together they will allow you to map pretty much anything.


By the way, there is a run of these maps made of lighter-than-intended card stock. I have two that fit this description, and while they've held up OK, they're definitely not going to last as long as my other flip-mats. You can identify the "too thin" ones because the map is folded in a C, rather than a Z.

Edit: Both of these guys have now given up the ghost, with ink soaking through at the corners. The good news is I've since bought two more of these, and they're on a much heavier stock. It seems like the light-than-intended maps are out of the distribution channel.

UM Why?

*( )( )( )( )

Considering how many maps have blank sides or are just blank... why make this?

Slightly too small

***( )( )

I have to make little alterations to a lot of published dungeon maps to get them to fit on this mat. It always seems like a I need 5-10 more squares in one direction or the other. But this won't be a problem if you're making your own dungeons to fit this size.

Folding up is great for storage but the rigidness of the mat makes it not want to lay flat once it's unfolded which makes it a hassle to keep your figures in the right spot/upright. I usually have to dedicate some time to laying books over it to get it to lay flat for the upcoming session.

Sadly Disapointed

**( )( )( )

As a regular Paizo fan of almost every product,I finally decided to pick two of these up at my FLGS when my Chessex mat died. I've used Gamer Paper and even laminated a paper grid map Wizards gave me.

The thickness is good, but my map had bubbles and the creases were so defined, even after reverse bending and laying books on it, they are a permanent fold in the map. The creases also appear to have already broken the fold seal and expect will stain the map underneath.

The desire to compress the package size in my opinion ruins the product.

What makes it worse is I was really looking forward to the printed maps, but the packing, being the same, implies the same issues in those.
