Press Release: Frontline Gaming and Tablewar Part Ways

After three years of working together on the F.A.T. Mat, Frontline Gaming and Tablewar are parting ways.

The partnership has been great, and the Frontline Gaming family wishes their friends at Tablewar all the best as they continue on with the F.A.T. Mat brand. We give a heartfelt thanks to all of our customers for making the past three years with the F.A.T. Mat a success.


Frontline Gaming has acquired the means to manufacture an entirely new line of gaming mats here in the United States of America at our new facility in San Diego, California. These are exciting times as the ability to manufacture our product domestically gives us unprecedented flexibility in design options and superior quality control, ensuring that each mat we sell is just what our customers are looking for. Your new gaming mat will be made by us, your fellow gamers! The possibilities are endless with these new tools and we look forward to a bright future in game mat design. Sign up for our newsletter to stay informed as to when these new mats will be available and what will be possible manufacturing here in the good old US of A!


The Frontline Gaming team.

    Does this mean you won’t be distributing to Europe anymore?

      We will still happily sell to Europe and will continue to sell through our existing inventory in our EU web-cart.

    So will they still be called F.A.T. Mats? Or will they be re-branded? Will the designs you currently have still be sold here?

      No, our mats will not be called F.A.T. Mats, we are starting a new, American Made brand! We are going to liquidate the existing F.A.T. Mat inventory and have no plans to restock them at this time.

        Any chance of having more maps with 40k deployment zones hidden in the features? Urban Combat 2 was my favorite for this reason with vanguard strike even lined up on the road flares.

          Entirely possible =) We can literally make anything once we get going. We’re even exploring the logistics of making custom mats.

    Ok, but who got the children?
    And who was the spouse that was caught cheating?
    Also, will the designs go to Table War? Because there are a few mats I want but never got 🙁

    Will these new Mats be more expensive than the F.A.T. mats?

      Cheaper than the MSRP we’ve been selling F.A.T. Mats at =)

    So on Signals, you said the new mats would have options for things like square or hex grids. You could make some pretty cool Blood Bowl mats with the square grid! On another note, are there any designs planned for orbital combat? Like, maybe, Dropfleet Commander? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink! 😀

    Do you have a rough idea when these new mats will become available (that you’re willing to tell us)?
