Indeed; a US penny works very well, and pennies are usually used to base 15mm minis - a bit out of scale but probably would work for representation. It could be that the new mats don't share this particular quality, in which case I suppose I just need to reinvest. It's not as many hexes as I'd like, which means erasing and redrawing rooms whenever the party moves very far, but it fits on the table and the miniatures fit in the hexes. I once left marker maps—fairly dense and intricate—on my chessex mat for weeks at a time so I didn't have to redraw the arena the party competed in week after week after week.

My Chessex Battlemat (20+ years and going strong : those were *not* 'Made in China') is within reaching distance . Wet-erase works better than dry erase, but be careful what you clean them up with, just plain water is safest. I can't seem to find my markers right now to test, though, so I can't say it will certainly work with dry-erase or wet-erase markers. This is especially helpful if your table isn't big enough to hold both the mat and still leave room around the edges for dice rolls. I have used mine for more than 2 years to-date, the whiteboard's thickness means it won't easily break unless you karate chop it down the middle.

Before Covid Hit, our DM was playing with a putting a piece of glass overtop of the battle map and using window/chalk markers on it. ANYONE CAN BE A GAMES MASTER OR DM – Whether you are just starting out or are an experienced player this game mat will last you for many a year to come. One point worth mentioning is that Chessex sell "seconds" - mats where the cut was off a little or the grid was printed on a slight bias - cheaper than for the best quality versions. Ethanol dissolves permanent marker ink so you would have to test it to make sure it doesn't dissolve the grid, or bleach the "parchment" texture.

I use wet erase markers, and from time to time I spray them with my wife's bleach cleaner to remove the residue. Decided this time I will streamline the game, put more emphasis in story telling and less focus (and money) in materials. A fellow DM has the Chessex Role Playing Mat 4 Pack (overhead projection water based markers) and they work very well too.

Best thing about them is that you lay out the tiles as you need them, rather than laying out the whole mat at once.

However, if you play most dungeon-distance battles out with miniatures the maps will have you covered. That said: All polymer materials are at least a little porous, so they can get stained if the marker is left on too long, regardless of what kind of marker you use.With the proper materials, I can just roll the mats into a tube, or maybe have several small enough to carry around in a backpack. Roll20 also has those pre-made clear covered map boards that are able to be taken where ever you game. Test them out on a corner and let the ibk stay for a couple days and then try and erase and see how it goes.

Laughing at the antics of a 2-year-old child is not demeaning or degrading, it is your heart boiling over with joy, and laughter is the path of least resistance for it to escape!

That's why almost everything I use is on GW 25mm round bases, upside down, with the mini's original base cut to let it sit inside of it. The big issue is the labor involved in sending the files to a printer then mounting and cutting them.
