Has anyone thought of making a captain's map table. Sort of like the plotting table from battlestar? I made map projection table for RPG's and plan to use it this weekend for the privet game I will be running. I will take some pictures and post then when I can. There are may ways of making the map table. You could also make it interactive with wii motes (Wii mote whiteboard).
Here is an example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFVXfsd4Nao
