That's a very nice board.
Where did you get it?
What's it's size (x-hexes by y-hexes)?

It is 30 hexes tall by 52 hexes wide.
The hexes are 1.5'' from side to side.

I bought the high resolution background graphic from Worldworks Games.

Then stitched the PDF panels together using Adobe Acrobat. Converted the final file to JPEG and used INKSCAPE (a freeware RPG mapping tool) to generate a custom hexgrid.

Finally, took the file to a local print shop and asked for it to be plotted on vinyl and laminated.

Gorgeous.

Since the background is from WorldWorks, I assume it's the one for WormHole? I bought that game and I'm hoping to try it sometime this summer. Kinda spiffy to be able to print and make as many ship-models as you please.

$17 for the artwork and $65 for the plotting.

If you shop around you can probably get a better price but near me there was only one shop with a big enough plotter.

Are the hex numbers all different or do they repeat?

It is a nice board.

Do you roll it up to store it?

They are all different. This way is easier to establish ship to ship distances in my opinion.

I glued the mats in two hard plastic panels. I store them standing up in a closet.

I do own another mat (felt) rolled up in a tube that is easier to transport.
