Feb 16th Edit:
Ordering for the PAX South 2016 Challenge Coin has been closed.
Total Coins ordered: 231
Total spent: 1,482$
It has been a lot of fun running the Challenge Coin this year and I look forward to doing it again next year!!
Jan 28th Edit:
T'was the night before PAX and all through the house
Not a gamer was stirring, not even (computer) mouse
Everyone was prepping their stuff for the big event
Whether packing for trips or drinking with friends
Excitement was in the air
and visions of adventures danced through their heads
Anyway, with PAX upon us, this edit is to say that the last date orders will be accepted will be February 15th, 2016 (Two weeks after PAX ends). If a second run goes through, coins for everyone!! If a second run does not go through, then people will be refunded their money, but no coins
We almost have enough for a second run of regular coins, but we still have a ways to go for colour.
Jan 4th Edit
We can have runs as small as 25, if we want to order more regular coins. However, they will not arrive before PAX.
Jan 2nd Edit
Our first run of 100 for the regular challenge coins have sold out!! The colour challenge coins still have 6 that can be bought.
I have e-mailed Kiddercorp asking if we can have mini runs if we go over 100 orders. I should hear from them on Monday.
Thank you to everyone who has ordered coins!!
Dec 15th Edit
Ok, a few things. First off. I appologize for some confusion that Kiddercorp and I had regarding price and shipping. The 5.75$ and 5.30$ with free shipping we were quoted before is for bulk orders, which is not what we are doing. That could be something to look into for next year where we order them in advance, have them ship to me and then give them out at PAX.
But either way, it looks like the price is the 5$ for regular and 6$ for coloured that we had talked about in the beginning and shipping is not included.
Costs for the coins will be based on this chart (which include shipping). If you are ordering colour coins, please add 1$ for each coloured coin ordered
For example, I ordered 10 coins. 2 regular and 8 coloured. So, that would be 53$ + 8$ (for each coloured coin) which comes to 61$ total.
The order form for ordering is HERE
You need to send the amount you are spending on coins to [email protected]
via Paypal first so you have all of the information to put on the form.
We have started with 100 of each coin, but if we need more of either, we should be able to get them done.
Thank you very much everyone here in the forums and at Kiddercorp for helping with this project. It has been a blast and I can't wait to see the finished products!!

The colors represent levels of metal (such as 3D), it does not represent different colors on your finished coin.

Proof for colour coin
Dec 8th Edit
Proof for regular coin
"This is currently listed as "shiny" gold with sandblasting to make the outer ring writing easier to read. Even with this sandblasting, shiny gold can make it hard to see writing. I recommend the finish be changed to antique gold."
"We would intend to price these similar to the other coins we have done for PAX. Basically the coins would be $5/each with shipping added depending on the QTY ordered and location.
The color version will be more, but only slightly more ($6/each). We can do both provided there is enough interest (50+ of each version)."
Dec 3rd Edit:
With the results in, we've started talking with Kiddercorp about making the coin and they have an artist working on it. They should have something for us in a few days.
If cost works out, would people be interested in having a limited run of coloured coins as well as the usual coin? Discuss!

Question 1, Are you happy with the way the coin is at the moment (Alamo/Dice)? If no, please suggest something
- I am happy with the design.
- Happy as is
- Less dice. Maybe one large die instead of so many because it would look cluttered engraved that way, and the colored idea looked very goofy to me.
- I don't play tabletop so I miss the video game stuff, but it looks cool so I'd still buy one.
- Add video game symbols (atari, nintendo, etc)
- Would like to have video games on there
- add video game elements to it please
- Alamo is cool, I like the dice colors but don't want video games left out. Is there a way to do half and half?

What the current idea looks like:
Last year we started talking about a challenge coin in November. It was a bit close to the wire, so I was thinking if we start talking about it now and designing it, more of us may have it for PAX!
Now...I don't know anything about the process...MasterRokku was all about that last year. I'm just excited for a new coin.
Looking at last years thread, we went with Phoenix Challenge Coins, had a gofundme page to pay for the initial casting fee and then people bought them online.
What do people think? What do we want on the coin this year?
