Does anyone have any information about an extra-large map for the game?
I recently saw a YouTube video with tournament players using one and it looked fantastic.

Can you supply a link to the video? I will take a look, but such things are custom efforts. I know someone who does these if you want to contact him.

Man that would be awesome. You could sell it in a kit with nice plexi overlays for air zoc.

I have the original, deluxe and mounted maps for EOTS.
I'd love to get my hands on one of these.

Bruce Holland is the guy you want. He has a contract with GMT to make these print-on-demand maps. He brought samples to the GMT weekend a couple years ago. EOTS was one of the samples he showed off.

Email him here: behowland at sbcglobal dot net

EDIT: He's printed playtest maps for me for my game design. The quality is top-notch.

I took a look. That is a custom print job. Depending on your budget this can be done at kinkos and as has been noted there are a few guys that do this to order.

Good luck,

Re: Large Map for EOTS
Bruce Holland's map just arrived and I couldn’t be happier with his work. I ordered a 130% sized map, and the reproduction is as clear as the original with the luxury of just being a bit larger. I use that word because the game as printed needs no fixing, but since this is THE PTO game for me, I just wanted the grandeur of a larger map. Thanks to all who responded to my initial inquiry-- I highly recommend Mr. Holland’s work for anyone interested in this or any other map he may offer to the public. One end note—Bruce’s work is sanctioned by GMT, and no copyright infringement of any kind is involved.

I also am interested in enlarging the map for this game, but have run into some problems. When I went to FedEx Office, they said they wouldn't copy the map unless I could provide some kind of documentation indicating that it was not under copyright protection. Anyone know where I might find something I could provide to reassure them? Alternatively, does the aforementioned Bruce Holland still provide enlarge maps, and if so does anyone know how to contact him? (An e-mail provided in a previous post just doesn't look quite right).
Thanks
