A fantasy RPG world is filled with tough customers, and the worst end up here, in prison! From the guard tower to the interrogation chamber to solitary confinement, Flip-Mat: Prison is a perfect set-piece for any campaign, and it makes an intriguing home base for heroes (or villains!) who take it over. It’s a riot!

This portable, affordable map measures 24" x 30" unfolded, and 8" x 10" folded. Its coated surface can handle any dry erase, wet erase, or even permanent marker. Usable by experienced GMs and novices alike, GameMastery Flip-Mats fit perfectly into any Game Master’s arsenal!

On tabletops across the world, the Flip-Mat Revolution is changing the way players run their fantasy roleplaying games! Why take the time to sketch out ugly scenery on a smudgy plastic mat when dynamic encounters and easy clean-up is just a Flip away?

Blank yet again....

*( )( )( )( )

Why the blank side? WHY?
Please give me bang for my buck.
Maybe a black market or something to coincide with the prison concept.
Or a Barracks.
Who cares, something else.

Another Tool in the Arsenal!


This is a great map. It's true that it is specific, but the beauty is having a blank side on the back. I don't want a blank side on every map but the occasional one is great. I have to of the basic blank maps too, but find that I need several blank sides so that I can pre-draw locations for game sessions in advance.

The prison isn't for an Alacatraz like setting but is perfect for a small town's jail, or remote prison. Thanks again Paizo!

Exactly What I Needed!


I bought this product at a local retailer BECAUSE it had a blank side. I very much prefer the ability to create the map I want along with a pre-made map.

I would disagree with xwingdragon's comment that the makers lack imagination and instead believe they are cultivating the GM's imagination. With a little imagination this map can be very versatile. For example, instead of a guard tower, you can place guards to patrol along the 5' walls or hide a secret staircase to your custom dungeon on the backside under the warden's desk.

Prison? Monastery? Garrison?

****( )

I really like this. The prison is generic enough that you can use it again as another sort of building. It could be a prison but again the cells could be the dormitory of a monastery or a garrison.

I've never liked floor plans that are too detailed or specific that you can only use them once. I think the level of detail is balanced enough that you can get away with slapping this down quite a few times over a campaign without your players quietly thinking "Oh, we're here... again." (Although I would've ditched the carpeted throne room for something sparser.)

I also like reverse sides that are a big expanse of something free from detail. Here we have flagstones but perhaps grass to match the prison's environment would've been better.

Another blank back...let's throw money away....

**( )( )( )

The prison side is very good...but not excellent (see Dave the Barbarian's review for some thoughts).

Once again, the makers of these maps have tried the do-one-side-nicely-and-leave-the-other-side-blank.
I have researched this map, and for the time being, I have not purchased it. (Why spend hard earned money for a half-baked job?)

They could have done a DUNGEON on the back (the secret prison escape route...), or another prison...even a prison half in ruins, or caves, or even a house for some pixies...the makers seem to lack imagination.
Some maps are a double whammy of goodness on both sides!
Not this one....

One star loss for good but not great prison.
Two star loss for blank side (oh, how dreadfully dull).
