2014 Continentals Playmats Available for Purchase

by Charlie Plaine, Chairman

27th July 2014

A little over a month ago, we announced that we were making special playmats available as prizes for our top players in the Continental Championships. The consensus of all the reports we've seen is that these mats have been well received! In addition, we ran a survey to see if members of the community would be interested in obtaining these mats for themselves, and the results were a resounding YES! Almost 85% of you told us that you'd be interested in purchasing a playmat for yourself, and many of you said you'd be interested in getting multiple playmats. Today, I'm happy to announce we are going to make that happen!



Playmats based on the ones given out at the 2014 Continental Championships (without the event branding), pictured above, are available for immediate pre-order via The Promenade. These items are available worldwide for $25. This is a price we believe to be reasonable based on the cost of manufacture and shipping, while still allowing The Continuing Committee to turn a small profit. These profits will be used to continue operating our website and offering prizes for all of our major events, as well as implementing programs to bring in new and entice returning players to rejoin the community. Think of your purchase of a playmat as a donation, except that you also get a great looking mat to use for your card games.

These mats are high quality and measure 24" x 14", and are 1/16" thick. Once we have them in our warehouse, we will roll them (never folding them) into cardboard mailing tubes and ship them directly to your door, so your playmats will be protected and will arrive in great condition. We expect to begin shipping your playmats at the end of August (after GenCon) or early September at the latest, depending on production time. We will be ordering based on pre-orders (plus a few extras for later), so there's no guarantee we'll get more of these mats in later - order now if you want one!

We want to thank you all for your patience as we've ironed out this new product. We have heard great things about these mats being used as prizes, and we can't wait to help you guys get your hands on similar mats. We are going to continue to make playmats as prizes for future events, so stay tuned: if you don't like this mat - there will be more.

Hit up the Promenade and get one of these mats today. They look great, help protect your cards and add some real style to your games!
