ive considered splitting the game at india at one point when making a combined axis & allies game...making india two territories...but thats just me...
I think if the map would be made any other way then that would be the other close to dead spot on the board to split. Many traditional strategic level games have gone that way. But still USA is by far the best choice.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

This subject is closed and I will be deleting it. The split will remain where it is.

Great idea. Stays flat, very light, doesn't bend....good for spills. I know which pads you're talking about....Nice!

Yes that is what i think larrys was saying. This format is the perfect most durable and cheapest way to go. I have a 24" chess board known as a floppyboard and its great. it never wrinkles and can be rolled up and folded as well. Its perfect. Ill take 100 please.

I wonder what this stuff cost. where its made. If there are any color restrictions, or better said - number of colors. And finally - durability... does it hold up.

My mouse pad is a photo of a world war two scene . It holds up to anything. The edges wear a bit on one side of my mouse pad ,But that because my hand keeps rubbing the corner. The chess mat is played outside in the sun and never shows any wear. It can take colors very easily. Not sure bout the cost boss, but ill call someone who does know the answer.
