“You truly belong here with us among the clouds.”
     –Lando Calrissian

Expand your galaxy with the Bespin Playmat and Death Star II Playmat, now available via FFG's in-house manufacturing!

Easily portable and made from slip-resistant natural rubber, these 3’ by 3’ playmats allow you to immerse yourself more fully in the Star Wars universe even as you battle for the fates of billions over the images of two of the galaxy’s most iconic locations.

Use one to enhance the squad-based dogfights of X-Wing in Standard Play, or place any two of our Star Wars™ Playmats side-by-side to evoke the vastness and wonder of space as you engage in the large-scale battles of X-Wing Epic Play or Star Wars™: Armada.

No matter whether you play X-Wing or Armada, no matter which faction you choose to represent, these playmats enrich your games with color, theme, and drama.

Bespin Playmat

“Aren’t you afraid the Empire’s going to find out about this little operation and shut you down?”
     –Han Solo

Don’t let the gentle, light-soaked clouds of the Bespin Playmat lull you into a false complacency. Cloud City was home to some of the most pivotal moments in the Galactic Civil War.

Now you can imagine new adventures set against a gorgeous full-color backdrop of Cloud City hovering at the edge of Bespin’s red and orange skies. Race full-throttle through the starlit heavens as you dodge laser blasts and fire your proton torpedoes at enemy starfighters, or deploy your fleet to seize control of Bespin’s valuable supply of tibanna gas.

Death Star II Playmat

“Your friends up there on the Sanctuary Moon are walking into a trap. As is your Rebel fleet!”
     –Emperor Palpatine

Deploy your fleet to the forest moon of Endor, and engage the enemy in an epic collision between capital ships and starfighter squadrons as the second Death Star looms menacingly in the background.

Evoking the final, climactic chapters of the classic Star Wars trilogy, the Death Star II Playmat makes a perfect backdrop for your biggest and most important battles. Moreover, because it is tournament-legal, like all of FFG’s playmats, your Death Star II Playmat can also serve as the backdrop for your most dramatic X-Wing or Armada tournament games, reminding you of all that is at stake as you position your forces and concentrate fire.
