      I think I know why they put the 'In Transit' above the Used Pile. It could be because when a character attacks and is not blocked, it goes out of play or 'in transit' until the end of turn. I personally find the 'KO' section redundant since there isn't an actual 'KO Pile'.

      My playmat, if I could design one, would be similar to this one, but with the transition beneath the Used, because habit of using the Dice Bag section on the Wizkids mats. I would leave off the KO section and just have a Prep Area. I love the life counter at the top and also the dice holders for the characters being above each one and not on the side.

      I always used the top of Used for Out of Play for that reason, unblocked dice go there. Solution: put one on the top and bottom of the used pile. Everyone is happy.

      I thought I was the only one who put my transition zone at the top left. I do it because it was easy to draw a line at the bottom of the field zone.

      It's just a habit for me because of the WizKids mats. We don't need two transits, lol. I'm fine with it at the top, just need to get used to it. I would put one at the bottom if I could make a mat, but I'm not that skilled with computers. I blame WizKids for putting that silly 'Dice Bag' section there.

      If it wasn't clear I love these mats transition aside.

      Absolutely - I do love them as well. In my blog, I give the opinion that they are superior to the official WizKids mats. I want one, but I will probably buy mine instead of entering the contest.

      so can someone please write up the email adress please for me? smellbad@reservepool.com or mailbag@reservepool.com maybe?

      @DiceDiceKitty :

      Well in the Attack Step you have an KO Pile rulebook wise, but there are so less cards using it. I ignore it all the time.
      Also i like more that the transit zone is up because for this reason , but you are correct too, because a small space there as safety and freedom is better than a big pile of dice.

      My playmat(in future with help of Mark) will be that all character cards are on the left side in vertical reading and only the BACS in right top corner. So that a i have much space for my right arm and my dice tower to roll

      Interestingly, smellbad@reservepool.com automatically forwards to @OddballNarwhal . :-P

      (ok, maybe not really... but I think that address needs to exist now)

      No no no... that's shellfad@reservepool.com. It's the email address I use for my Etsy shop, where I sell seashell knee bells by the tea store (Fifty Shades of Earl Grey).

      I guess leaving the 'KO' on there wouldn't be bad then, for that reason. Maybe they'll make some card in the future that references the KO area. And not like it's a big deal. I ignore it anyway, lol
