DM screens are sometimes a hot button issue. DMs either love them or hate. A lot of players complain that DMs are cheating behind their screens. I personally use a screen to hide minis and terrain pieces. I still make my rolls on the table in front of my players. One issue I do have with using a DM’s screen is that I can’t see the whole table/battle mat. That issue was resolved when I found the  The World’s Greatest Screen at Gen Con a few years back (you can find the original article here).

Hammerdog offer their screens in three formats: vertical, horizontal, and mini. What makes them the world’s greatest? Well according to their website:

  • You can put anything you want in the pockets.
  • You can fold it up and use it any way you like.
  • You can write all over it with wet erase markers.
  • Magnetic Game Aids work through the pockets.
  • You can download inserts for it free from our site.
  • What more do you need?

I use the mini, it hides my minis, but doesn’t obscure the table. The mini uses 4×6 index cards, and has 12 pockets. I’ve created some inserts for the mini screen (free download).

What to use the player-facing pockets for?

  • NPC pictures and names
  • Maps
  • Player images
  • Artwork
  • Track Initiative
  • Dank memes
