Map Display

Your ship is shown on the map with a cardboard box with art on all six sides, called a “box miniature” or “box mini”. By placing these in angled plastic parts called tilt blocks, we can show a ship’s pitch and roll in 30° increments, like the illustrations below:





The first illustration shows a box miniature level with the map; the second illustration shows one pitched up at 60° and rolled to the right at 30°. With altitude tiles, the box miniatures show complete orientation and altitude information on the map.

A ship’s future position from designated with an End of Turn (EoT) marker (not shown).
