Default Mars Attacks/Deadzone Game mat size help?

Hi folks,

I'm hoping to pick up a copy of Mars Attacks when its released at the end of september, and thought it would be fun to make a modular game board for it. However i'm not 100% sure how big the gaming board is? From watching the various videos on the web i've picked up some info on it. From what I know the mat is 2 feet square and made up of 3 inch smaller squares. So that would make it 8 squares by 8. Like a chess board I guess. Is this correct?

Thanks for any help.

...so anyways, I did get my copy of Mars Attacks when it was released and made me that modular game board.

It's made with thick foam card as a base, built up with cardboard squares (to make the game board grid easier to see) and wooden dowel for the kerb edges. I did start painting it without the sand texture at first, but it didn't look right. So I added the sand and got it all painted up over the christmas hols. Just got the 40 models and a bunch of scenery to paint now. (Maybe I should make it into a Project Log.)

By the way, sorry for the poor quality pics, I never seem to get any daylight this time of year.

There must be some interest in Mars Attacks then.

To see how I'm getting on painting up this game, please view my Project Log here:-

Thanks for looking.
