At a Major show, I expect to see high quality terrain. If I'm cruising through and your doing a demo on a plain green felt mat, I'm wondering how much you really care about this game you want me to buy. That being said, I'm not a gaming snob. If you have a felt base and appropriate looking terrain on top of it, great. This is the best and easiest way to do tournaments, especially large ones.

POLL DESCRIPTION

A while ago, one of us struck a nerve when he innocently remarked:

In my opinion, the terrain and scenery [at Historicon] was not up to last year's level. Many of the games were played on green felt mats, rather than the spectacular homemade terrain I saw last year.

So - is felt terrain suitable for use in a game event at a major show?

definitely

Yes - there's nothing wrong with felt terrain.

mostly

Felt terrain is OK, as long as it's good felt terrain, and as long as it's not the whole show...

mostly not

Felt terrain should be discouraged, but not forced out completely...

absolutely not

Felt terrain is inappropriate for a major show.

only in emergencies

Felt terrain should be allowed only in situations where better terrain is not feasible (i.e., long travel distance).

no opinion

I have no opinion.
