With a size of 67 x 98 cm (approximately 26 in. x 39 in.), it is designed to fit most normal tables. Two or more game mats can be joined together to play larger battles.
The game mat features a faint grid similar to a nautical map, to make assessing the direction of the wind easier than on a normal gaming table. It can be used on its own to represent battles in the open sea, or combined with the terrain elements included in the Starter Set or Terrain Packs to create hundreds of different scenarios.
Designed to be used with the tactical ship-to-ship game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Andrea Mainini, the Sails of Glory® Game Mat is also suitable for use with any other naval wargaming rule set.
