Magnetic Maps FAQ

Cursed Crypt's Magnetic Map Sets are a collection of various environments and settings that act as a backdrop for your tabletop RPG adventures! Each map is printed on high-quality magnetic material. Our meticulous printing process uses durable and accurate inks leading to final products with a stunning level of detail.

Magnetic Map Sets generally contain 4 map sections unless otherwise stated in the product description. They are printed on 15mil magnetic material, with each map section perfectly sized for covering the face of a single Grid.

MAPS refers to any environment or scene. These can fill up an entire 10"x10" Grid, or they can be pre-cut settings like houses and taverns.

PROPS refers to smaller pre-cut pieces, like beds, campfires, or vehicles, that can be used along with Maps or directly on the face of the Grid.

Magnetic Maps are designed to work with the Mimic's Grid, but are durable to be used on their own. They are great for all manner of tabletop games - from D&D to Pathfinder, Star Wars to Warhammer - and everything in between!

Take your Dungeons & Dragons and RPG adventures to the next level with Cursed Crypt's magnetic maps!

Magnetic Materials

Magnetic Maps are printed on ultra-durable high-quality magnetic material with a nice medium amount of magnetic force. That means that your maps will stay in place when you need them to, but they also aren't too difficult to move around or adjust. Full maps are printed on 15mil material, and props are printed on 20mil material.

Wondrous Quality Prints

Cursed Crypt has concocted an involved printing process that results in maps that are crisp, clear, color-accurate, and offer a stunning amount of detail. We run each and every map through a rigorous digital preparation, meticulously combing through every inch of a print to ensure that it passes our quality standards. We clean and inspect our printer daily, monitor all the prints as they are completed, and inspect them thoroughly before packaging them for shipping.

Using Magnetic Maps with your Mimic's Grid:

Slap the Map on your Grid...
...and PLAY!

You’ve got new Magnetic Maps! Your maps come pre-cut, which means that we cut a half-depth outline around each object, and leave the fun part to you - popping them out! We find the process cathartic and relaxing, but it does require a bit of finesse!

The Perfect Removal

We’ve found the perfect approach to separating pieces from their jacket. If you follow these steps you will succeed.

Pieces of Advice

The best advice we can give is to be gentle! Trust us, we’ve ruined plenty of pieces by going to town on them like a barbarian at a barbecue.

  • There may be complicated corners with twists and turns - take them slowly and carefully.
  • Be like a monk, and use your hands. DO NOT use knives, blades, or swords.
  • Make this a social experience! Do you know any rogues? Nimble fingers and all...
  • If you find a shallow cut, that’s probably our fault. Sorry! Save those pieces for the end.
  • Always fold along the cut line before tearing - or risk certain doom and frayed rubber.
  • If a piece (particularly a small or complex detail) starts to stretch, stop, breathe, and fold again. Stretched pieces have a tendency to tear.
  • Stone by stone, a castle. Piece by piece, an adventure. Have fun and take your time.

Care Instructions

Magnetic Maps are like the spell components of map-making wizardry - full of creative potential but will wear out over time if not cared for properly. This guide will teach you how to give your pieces the long life they deserve.

Cleaning

To clean your maps, use only water and soft cloths. Strong solvents or the Grid Cleaning Spray can damage the image.

Markers

Unlike the Grids, your Magnetic Maps DO NOT have the Any Erase surface. We do not recommend using markers on them.

Storage

The maps are made from magnetic rubber, which has a terrible memory. To store, place each piece on a flat surface free of debris to prevent damage.

Temperature

Heat will warp your maps. Avoid leaving them inside hot vehicles and in direct sunlight. Extreme cold will cause the magnetic rubber to become brittle.

Warranty Information

Your Magnetic Maps are covered under a limited warranty. If your pieces tear during removal within 14 days of receipt, we’ll replace them – you’ll just pay shipping.

What is Covered?

Dramatic misprints and tears that occur during removal of pieces from their jacket.

What isn't Covered?
