Subdued Hexes and Squares:
    Silk screened hexes/squares on the Euro Mat is designed to be subtle, not over powering. In fact, if you are about 15 feet from a table using the Euro Mat, the hexes/squares are no longer visible leaving only field pattern showing. This means the printed hexes/squares won't distract from your game, nor will it cause eyestrain. This allows you and your players to concentrate on what is important: the game.
    Hotz Mats can be printed with your choice 1, 1½, 2, 3, 4 or 5 inch hexes or 1, 2 or 4 inch squares. The number of games that can be played out on our felt cloth game mats is limited only by your imagination.

Hexes and Squares are Printed To All Edges:
    Having the hexes/squares pattern silk screened printed to the edge of the game mat gives you the option of placing several mats together, side-by-side, to increase the playing area of your game.

Treated Felt Surface:
    All Hotz ArtWorks mats have been treated with a deep penatrating fabric binder that not only strengthens the mat, greatly increasing it's durability, but also allows the mat to retain the felt's natural flexibility. This treatment serves to preserve the felt surface and to protect it from years of use. These mats will not pill, or fall apart from normal game play.

Great Felt Colors:
The game mats colors were specifically chosen because they are the colors most gamers need for their games. In some cases, the specific colored felt had to be shipped in from great distances just to obtain that "perfect" color that gamers desire.
    Note: We do custom orders; if you do not see the color felt you need, we can probably make it for you.

Airbrushed Artwork:
    Fields, woods, etc., have been airbrushed onto the felt surface to depict an aerial view of the typical European landscape -- this is the perfect mat for air combat games over Russia, Britain, France, Germany, etc. The airbrushed surfaces have been sealed into the felt fabric after painting to ensure the paint will not wear off from normal game play.

Artwork is Geomorphic:
    Hotz ArtWorks mats are designed to be geomorphic, which means terrain features on the mats will match up with other mats of the same type. When several Euro Mats are placed side-by-side the artwork will match from one mat to the next creating the illusion of a singular unbroken pattern of fields/woods.
