Some people entertained thoughts of playing WiF on it, maybe after wall-mounting it. Other's wanted it as a collectable.

I use pieces of it for analysis away from the computer.

Very helpful for any operations in Asia (e.g., China) and once the Germans get east past the WIFFE printed European map.

I've also used it to examine the DOW turn for Japan plotting out which hexes to invade. That's a little harder to do on the screen because the area is so large. You either have to keep jumping back and forth between invasion areas or use a low zoom level. For me, being able to take in all the possibilities at a glance is useful.
