    Meh, they probably forgot to come back because tickets went on sale so long ago. I'm sure everyone will be back by the end of November/beginning of December.

    I'm liking the new finishes; hopefully they all cost the same.

    They sent that list of finishes to Aus, so I'm pretty sure they're all current and Aus didn't mention anything about them being a different price, but once we decide, we can ask :)

    Sorry, moved recently and have been busy with the whole unpacking thing. It is amazing how much junk you accumulate in 12 years.

    I don't think I have even been on the forums for a few months :biggrin:

    Looking through the thread, it looks good so far. I need to remember to actual use my camera this year and try and get some good pictures of the area for the 2018 coin.

    Had to vote for antique silver or black nickel but damn black dye and 2 tone look great to

    Thanks @BadCrumpany for searching for those pics!

    I like the Black and White Code one. I feel it would look best on a coin :)

    However, I am sure we can have the artist at Kiddercorp add colour to the arrows if we want to do colour again :)

    I agree with the black and white version. Keeping it simple without loosing it's purpose. A touch of color wouldn't hurt either :D

    Hello all! I have created a survey for the location side of things.

    Please submit your vote here: https://goo.gl/forms/9TTmLzRTzogSitNW2


    If there is enough demand for something other than the convention center for the coin, we can redo the poll later on.

    Bummer!! I missed out on the voting for the location site, however, I would have chosen the convention center as the location.

    Perhaps this year we could think about changing the finish of the coin. Don't get me wrong, antique bronze is great. Sometimes change is good and you may be surprised and pleased with the outcome. I voted differently for the finish of this years coin. Let's see how everyone else votes.
    Keep in mind that some of us were reluctant with the introduction of the color coin. Look how great that change is :P

    Agreed that black nickel and antique silver look great.

    Last year's South coin was done in Antique Gold (Someone correct me if it was bronze and the thread from last year is wrong.)

    Nah, it was gold. I think Devereaux was referring to the fact that almost every other coin has been antique bronze or silver.

    I was wondering what you guys thought about donating some money to Child's Play when buying coins?

    Personally I think that there's a whole lot of avenues with which to donate to Child's Play already. I am not against it, but there's a point at which saturation is reached when it comes to charity events and pax combined. If you think it will get people to donate that aren't already currently donating, though, maybe it's worth a look. I'm just wondering who is on the forums and goes to pax that needs a method to donate that is not already filled, if that makes sense.

    I was thinking that the Dinner and Cookie Brigade are cash (as far as I know), with the coin, people can pay with their credit card. But, I do understand oversatuation. Just a thought :)

    Kiddercorp got back to us real quick!!

    First round of proofs

    rl82bl1ko78h.jpg

    So, I told them we were between antique silver and sandblasting and to pick whichever would go better with their design. Looks like they picked the antique silver.

    I like the look of the location side of the coin.

    The game side, I feel, could use some work. When submitting the design, I had given them the image I had put in the coin as reference and said that we'd like it to take up some more space in the coin, but I don't think that got across. I like the colour for the arrows and buttons, except they did it in pairs. It works for the down and up arrows, but the left and right ones are the same colour based on their grouping.

    They took the PAC people that we used on the PAX West coin. PAX Aus went back to the smaller ones with no eyes. We can decide to keep the large ones or go back to the smaller ones. I also think I'd like either the PAC people to be yellow on a silver coin, or at least give Ms. Pacman red for her bow.

    Anyway, that's my thoughts and feelings, let me know what you think!

    I guess I'm dumb. I didn't know that antique silver is nickel. :surprised: I also didn't know that on the color one it was just color on one side. I guess I never paid attention to the coins until the pictures were laid out like that. And you have some awesome ideas Rilms. I like your ideas for the finer points as well. Since it was split between silver and sandblasting, could they maybe do one of the two in one metal and one in the other metal? Or do they charge more for that? Just wondering since then people would have a variety!

    Yeah, I was hoping for 4 separate lines on the game side:
    UUDD
    LRLR
    AB
    Start

    I'd also like some color on the PAC people if possible for the color coin.

    @BadCrumpany, I believe last year they said there is too much fine detail on the location side for them to color it in AND make it look good.


    Edit: This is the best I could do with my Bob Ross-like MSPaint skills, but something along these lines is what I imagined the game side to be.

    Agreed on the arrow colors being odd in their current color combination (I get why they did it that way, but that pretty much counters how the majority of us players would view the grouping)

    I think they look much better. They left the PAC people big, but they look much better in yellow.

    Thoughts?
