Now on Kickstarter: Epic Metal Coins for Tabletop Gaming

November 25, 2014 - 11:40am
epic coins Infinity Plus One is running their second kickstarter, "Epic Metal Coins for Tabletop Gaming."  At first glance, the striking crescent and square shapes of the two coin types are reminiscent of the coin chits used in the popular worker placement game Lords of Waterdeep by Wizards of the Coast.
Epic Coins are real metal fantasy currency designed to be used with tabletop board games, role playing games, larping or as props.  The coins have a fantasy themed design but real world detail and heft, so upgrade your cardboard tokens!  There are two unique designs available in sets of 60 pieces (10X cresecent and 50X square coins).
The square coins, which look like ancient Chinese or Japanese money (with the hole in the middle), come in an antique brass finish and carry the value of one coin.  The one "ONE" is elegantly inscribed on each coin in elven and dwarven script.  Similarly, the crescent-shaped coins sport an antique silver finish, carry the value of five coins with "FIVE" inscribed in both languages as well. To date, this project has funded $548 of its $3200 goal.  The project is set to finish on Saturday, December 27, 2014 at 2:00 AM.  There are five different pledge levels, ranging from a $5 pledge for one coin of your choice to a $500 pledge for ten full sets of 60 coins in each set.  A fulfillment date has been set for June 2015, and has been padded to account for possible delays. I'd love to enhance my copy of Lords of Waterdeep with a set of these solid metal, highly thematic coins. But one might want to reinforce the bottom of the game box to handle the weight...
