The things actually turned out to be 30 cm square overall, and thus 29 cm from centre to centre. I stripped the covering off some of them with a knife to make up some river sections, and them took them outside to spray them with a little green. Since the mats cost just 108 yen each, that meant the cost of the spray increased the price of the endeavour by something like 35%! Still, very cheap I think.

|I'd use a 5 by 4 table for "Lost Battles" - but not on this table!|
|This would do fine for a "To the Strongest!" game; with 3x3 boxes per mat.|
Anyway, I'm pretty chuffed with the results, given the price (say 40 bucks all told) and the time taken. I'll be looking out for more!
