So I just saw this Kickstarter for magnetic gaming tables () and it got me thinking. This idea is fantastic but limited, if I want to play a game on a urban battlefield I have to buy another set of tiles. Especially when I've already made a made two tables, what if I wanted to do a trench board, I'd need to buy more.
This got me thinking, what if I magnetize the table underneath my board? All I would need to do is find a high power magnet capable of pulling through an inch of two of foam (more on the hills) that can be bought as a sheet. So I come to you guys asking if you know of any magnets capable of this? Where I could get them from? And how much it would cost me?

I just think it would be improbable/crazily expensive to get 6'x4' magnetic sheet.
nah... the print company i work for regularly orders B1 sized magnetic sheeting that works out to be about £3 per sheet... roughly 6 would be needed for a 6'' x 4'' board... although id admit the magnetic'ness of it really only works at contact to 5mm or so... so not really that great.
kind of a pointless idea anyway i dont see the need to magnetise your board and scenery.
