These are maps (1-52 from ASL, t-z from ASL Starter Kits #1-#3) of 8"x22" geomorphic mapboards for use with Advanced Squad Leader. These maps are printed on the same material as starter kit maps. They are not paper, nor are they "old-style" mounted boards--rather, they are a lightweight cardstock a little thinner than the thickness of a counter.
MMP moved to this style map for one reason--cost savings. It was proving impossible to reprint out of print core modules when the cost we had to pay for mounted maps was through the roof (literally $4+ per board our cost). The maps are shipped in a box so that they are not folded. PLEASE NOTE that they will be scored so that they can easily be folded if you so choose. It's part of the production process, we're not going to try and bypass that. But when shipped they will be flat. We weighed a mock-up today and it was nearly 7 pounds not including the packing box and filler, this is a heavy product!
