Don't Bring a Horse!

Even adventurers who are right at home fighting dragons feel uneasy in the swamp, where quicksand beckons and one can never be sure what might lurk in the undergrowth! It's the perfect place for putrid encounters sure to put your players on edge.

The most-popular Pathfinder Flip-Mats in history return! These fan-favorite maps feature versatile adventure settings—city streets, forests, ships, taverns, and more—and now they're back for a repeat performance. Durable and lavishly detailed, these essential adventure set pieces are sure to bring excitement to your game table for years to come!

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. Each Flip-Mat measures 24" x 30" unfolded, and 8" x 10" folded.

Needs Improvement

2/5

I've had occasion to use the Swamp flip-mat on a few occasions now. The two sides of this mat have a lot in common, with identical color schemes, basic terrain features (winding paths of dry land with boggy water on either side, with darker patches that could be maybe quicksand or deep water?), and the same sort of drag-and-drop trees that don't really look like they fit naturally into the scene. The difference between the two sides comes in some additional features. The flip-mat's "front" (according to the packaging) has crumbling stone walls from some sort of an ancient ruin (complete with broken columns, a throne, and a staircase leading downward) near some sort of hut or dugout surrounded by sphere-topped stakes of some kind (I can't quite tell). It's okay, but I tend to like my terrain flip-mats more "pure", and find the addition of extraneous structures to be distracting limitations on my ability to re-use them for various scenes. The "back" of the flip-mat is better, and contains some believably-common features such as tree-trunks blocking the path, a small island that could *maybe* be reached by balancing across a branch, etc. Overall though, the design and art on the flip-mat just aren't very impressive, and I wouldn't mind seeing an updated take on the idea--or even a "Bigger Swamp" flip-mat.


GREAT MAP

4/5

The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that it doesn't look much like a swamp. That being said, this is one of my most used, "go to" maps. It's perfect for a forest path and ambush. I love, love, love this one, even if the art isn't comparable to more recent releases. It's incredibly useful and I highly recommend it.


The green stuff is supposed to be water...

3/5

THE GOOD:
You can combine both sides to form a large map!
On one side you get a path leading from a (3x3 squares) hut of a maneater or hag (inside is a bubbling cauldron with bones in it and a table with a humanoid skull) to a ruin comlex in which stands a throne and a stone stairway leads below.
On the other side you get a series of paths leading through what is supposed to be brackish green water in 5 different directions.

THE BAD:
It´s hard to tell what is supposed to be swamp and what not. Both the brown parts and the green parts make not really sense. It´s looking more like a mud path leading through grassland.

THE UGLY:
We still need a real swamp mat with lots more of water in it that looks like water and not grass.

This map is useful but it does not look like swamp.

Liz, can you look into your crystal ball and see what maps are going to be released?

I am super interested in this, since trying to find any of the flip mats of the ships is almost impossible.

My crystal ball is super-clear on this: retail release date is August 26th.

Why has the date changed to September 2nd???

I thought the street date was August 26th...

Delays at the port again. Thankfully, not a strike this time, so it shouldn't be an ongoing problem.

Will these be part of our map subscriptions, or will I need to order them separately?

Can anyone confirm that the squares on this guy are actually one-inch? I purchased Flip Mat Classics: Ship, only to discover that the squares were ~3-4% smaller than an inch. >:(
