The BattleMat is the gameboard on which the Fellowships of Men & Monsters CCG is played. If you look closely at the BattleMat you will notice that it is not your typical gameboard with card zones, etc. - this BattleMat in fact is an actual battlefield!!! This allows the player, spell & magic item cards to interact with each other as if engaged in an actual battle on a battlefield. The design of the BattleMat gameboard includes two Front Line Zones for opposing teams' players to engage in battle. It also includes a Back Line that allows teams a means to protect or shield some of their more vulnerable or important players from combat. Card Zones for the different card types as well as used or discarded cards are conveniently located on the outside of the Battlefield Zones so that they do not interfere with gameplay. Use the Key to the BattleMat Zones below to learn about how the various Battlefield & Card Zones are used in a game!
