  1. I see! So they cost much more than the “ore” and the “gold ingot”? Is that 2 times more?
    If the “gold nuggets” compete with the “gold ingots” wouldn’t that mean that many people would want them?
    I honestly do not know which games — that require “gold” as a resource — require it in the form of nuggets or ingots.

    Btw, even in their wooden version, “gold nuggets” are rare! I could only find one place that sells them and they are part of a set.

    I also think they would look cool and if you ever decide to make them … I will buy them!

    1. As for the cost, the metal tokens are just expensive to make in general (not in relation to each other). And we have to make a minimum of 15,000 of them if we make them at all. So I’d just want to make sure the demand is there. :)

  2. Hello Jamey,
    Firstly, I wanted to let you know that I have recently bought some of your tokens and I was really impressed by the amount of work that went into the design and production!
    Also, I wanted to ask you if you are planning to produce some “gold nugget” resources as opposed to just “gold ingots” (which btw they also look nice)? For example, you do have both “ore” and “steel ingots” as separate resources.
    Thank you.

    1. Thanks Kyrk! I’m glad you like the tokens.

      There was a point when I thought about making gold nuggets in addition to the gold ingots. They’re pretty expensive to make, though, so it’s only something we could do if a lot of people wanted them–I worry that they’d directly compete (instead of complement) the gold ingots. I do think they’d look cool, though.

  3. I just thought I’d add my two cents with regards to the metal coins. The Viticulture set are awesome quality and make a perfect replacement for the coins in Istanbul and Libertalia.

  4. Hey Jamey,
    How about some suggestions for Anachrony. It’s begging for improved tokens, but I’m not sure how to match things out. There are five resources.

    Neutronium (purple cube) 15
    Uranium (green cube) 20
    Gold (yellow cube) 20
    Titanium (grey cube) 25
    Water (blue glass blob) 70 or 20 light blue and 10 dark blue (5 water).

    Gold is easy.

    But the rest?


    1. Thanks Jerry! We could explore this if there are several popular games that use these tokens. Top Shelf Gamer does offer water tokens, and I think our iron ingots could work for titanium. We have a uranium token, but it’s red. Our potion token is purple, but I doubt it looks like neutronium. :)

  5. Hi Jamey, Actually Catan uses ore not stone. Also “The Colonies” scenario uses Gems and Gold nuggets. Also from what metal are your ore and gold tokens made of and can I buy them in Europe?

  6. Hi i really love ur Treasure Chest
    but are they custumizeble? i need 5 recources but they are divided over 3 chest`s
    we play Concordia.

  7. I’d love a cannon to use for Francis Drake. The best you can do now is scrounge the internet for cannons from old copies of Risk.

  8. Hi. I really like the quality of the resources! In the Treasure Chest chart shouldn’t there be a check in the Gold column for Euphoria?

  9. I’ve actually found that the steak and wool work as substitutes for cow and sheep in Glen More in a way they just wouldn’t for Agricola and Caverna (since there’s no breeding in Glen More). Will be nice to have actual sheep and cows when the animal chest comes, though…
