I purchased this Circus Maximus Map a few years ago. We had it out this past weekend with 7 players and several friends commented on how much better the game was with this large map. This prompted me to look up where I bought it and now review it. We also bought the metal horses and chariots and had a friend paint them. Having all these visuals, along with a crowd noise track playing in the background, everyone was really getting into the game.
I had been storing this map rolled up in a cardboard shipping tube - mistake! I had to tape the map onto the table to keep it from rolling back up. I now store this map behind the bookshelf that holds our games. I clipped 2 office binder clips on one short side with pieces of non-slip grip mat. The grip mat keeps the binder clips from sliding off the map. Then I made a loop with a twist tie through one side of each loop on the clip and threaded a dowel rod through the twist tie and tightened them up. With everything off the top of the bookcase, I feed the map down behind the bookcase. The dowel rod keeps the map from sliding out of reach and makes a handy handle for pulling it out. Storing it this way keeps the map flat, clean, and out the way.

You can also reverse roll the map and put it back into the tube for a few hours to remove the curl. I usually just use some packing tape on the corners to tape the map down anyway. Peals right off if you do it right.
