This article will cover all official playmats that were distributed in the OCG Asia regions in 2015. The playmats are listed in chronological order by date of distribution.

This playmat was given to the participants of the Rank-Up League 2015 Spring Season Tournament.

Featuring El Shaddoll Shekhinaga, Shaddoll Hedgehog, Shaddoll Dragon and Shaddoll Falco, this full-size playmat is printed on a glossy surface. The area around El Shaddoll Shekhinaga is slightly under-saturated, causing El Shaddoll Shekhinaga to look rather blue than purple.

With up to 64 for Taiwan and up to 32 for each of the other 4 regions, there are less than 192 copies of this playmat in circulation.

Rank-Up-League-2015-2016-Season-1-Champion-Playmat

This playmat was awarded to the Champion of each region’s Rank-Up League 2015 Spring Season Tournament.

This playmat is similar to the one given to the participants, but without the card zones and with an additional “Champion” printed on it. The lack of the card zones made the dark side of the playmat to become duller, and thus demands for a stronger brightness. As a result, this higher contrast adjustment caused El Shaddoll Shekhinaga to look over-compensated with a tint of orange.

With 1 for each of the 5 regions, there are only 5 copies of this playmat in circulation.

With 1 for each of the 5 regions, there are only 5 copies of this playmat in circulation.

 

AFA Singapore 2015

This playmat was awarded to the Top 4 players of each region’s Asia Championship SP Qualifier 2015.

Featuring Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss, Beatrice, the Eternal Lady and Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss, this full-size playmat is printed in clear and bright coloring on a glossy surface.

Having Beatrice in the background with a splash of white and blue is a perfect depiction of Paradiso (Heaven), the final chapter of Dante’s Divine Comedy. This is also reflected in the enlightened form of Dante. And of course, Dante wouldn’t have made it without Virgil – his trusty guide in Inferno (Hell) and Purgatorio (Purgatory).

With 8 each for Taiwan and Hong Kong, and 4 each for the other 3 regions, there are only 28 copies of this playmat in circulation.
