DriveThruRPG Game Master Screen (portrait)

DriveThruRPG Game Master Screen (portrait)

GM Screen

Many GMs consider a Game Master Screen to be core item for a gaming table. Along with dice, miniatures and maps, it's a gaming accessory that gets used and re-used over many years of gaming.

We wanted to offer the very best screen we could find, so we've partnered with Hammerdog Games to make their TWGS (The World's' Greatest Screen) available on DriveThruRPG both as a stand-alone and also in combination with screen inserts from many top roleplaying game publishers.

  • Made of durable vinyl
  • Re-usable and customizable for any game system

This is truly the only GM Screen you will ever need to buy. Made from durable vinyl material, the four panel screen has eight clear pockets (one on each side on each panel) to hold sheet inserts. As you change campaigns or game systems, you need only remove and replace the inserts with the tables, charts and quick reference materials you need most for whatever game you're playing at the moment. Likewise you can change out the inserts facing your players to hold art, maps, handouts or other visuals pertinent to tonight's game session.

Adding inserts to the screen

For your convenience, many publishers offer ready-made inserts as downloads and as pre-printed cardstock sheets here on DriveThruRPG.

Each of the eight screen pockets holds an 8.5" x 11" page.

4 panels hold 8 inserts

Screens are available in landscape and portraint orientation so choose whichever model you prefer. This product is the taller, portrait orientation screen.

Do A4 Sheets also work?

Customers outside of North America have asked if A4 size sheets work in the screen. The A4 sheet is narrower than the North American standard page size so that is not a problem. The A4 page length is .69 inches or 1.75cm longer than the standard North American page size's length of 11 inches. So this leads to a little bit of an A4 sheet's length extending out the top of the plastic sleeves on the screen.

Here's a picture of an A4 sheet in the screen. Note the picture makes things look trapezoidal but that is just the perspective of the photograph.

Trimming less than 2cm from the page length would let it fit, or the overhang out the top may not be considered a problem to worry about.

We currently only ship screens from North America, and the screens are heavy-duty so the shipping costs to locations outside the USA are not low. We only charge the actual freight, it's just expensive to ship. You can see the actual shipping charge for your destination by adding the screen to your cart and beginning checkout. The first pages of checkout will show you the shipping charge for your destination.

Can you buy just the inserts for the screen here? I bought the screen at a local shop, but the website you are supposed to download the inserts from doesn't work (

The shipping cost is almost the same as the cost of the product.
Be prepared to spend around 50USD.
I'd recommend not buying this, but any other screen through amazon.

Alternatively, go to the dollar store, buy two 3-ring binders, cut them up and tape together the flaps, add a couple of clear sheet protectors and done.

This is a goddamn good game master screen! Cannot recommend it enough, as I just love how HIGH it is! It makes me able to sometimes stand up at the table and have a good eye over the whole situation. I must buy another one!

If its that expensive how can Paizo send out flipmats for $5 postage from the US to the UK??

I would love one but US to UK postage is rediculous, ($24-$38) and more than the screens cost when included with one set of inserts, If offered at a good price in the UK I would snap one up but until then I think the postage is unreasonable :(

warning though. If you leave this in a cold car you better let it come to room temp before you try to open it. I opened mine cold and the darn thing snapped at the bend...i owned it for all of 1 day 1 use before it broke. :(

Oh no! We can't have that Rachel. Take a digital pic of the broken screen and send it to our customer service team. They'll get a replacement out to you.

That is good of you. Especially for how much it costs...

There should really be an A4 version of this.

We added a photo and information about how well A4 sheets fit.

Are there any plans for a Europe-based version of this? It seems there are no customisable GM screens for sale here that don't have to be imported from the US.

Product Information
Electrum seller
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
