If you play a lot of card games you want to protect your investments while playing. A playmat outlines your play space and cushions the area for you cards. Those are just the technical aspects of a playmat. Each playmat measures 14″x24″ and is about 1/16″ thick.
They also offer the ability to customize your play space with a beautiful image. Playmats are printed on neoprene and if you think they just resemble giant mouse pads you wouldn’t be wrong. I use playmats for my mouse pads in the studio. Either use is a fun addition to any gamer or work station.
