Recently purchased the Tromple and Mountianspalk playmat and it is a glorious as the card. However, the quality, specifically the smell, is much less so. The rubber backing emits a terrible 'fishy' smell, that despite my best efforts of frebreeze'ing it, letting it air out for over a week, and washing it in a mild solution, it still is as strong as ever. I've purchased a handful of Ultra Pro's and other third-party mats and none have had this issue. I have reduced it to be a playmat I leave in my basement for group games and wouldn't really want to take in anyway in public, unless I wanted to try to use it as a biological weapon to defeat my opponent.
