PAX West/Prime Challenge Coin 2017 (updated June 25th, 2017)

Hello everyone! Nfan10039 here yet again to spread the love of the challenge coin! This year, I have decided that I will not be attending PAX Prime/West this year. However, I will (hopefully) get one of the other challenge coin people to distribute them in person if you don't want them mailed to you.

Anyways, without further ado, I would like to present the PAX West/Prime Challenge Coin 2017 suggestion form. This is located https://goo.gl/forms/VmxQUfEwrEuXHQi02 and I welcome all responses!


UPDATED JUNE 25TH


Hello once again everyone! First off, I want to thank everyone for their suggestions for this year's coin. We are entering the home stretch now! Note: no coin options are included in this version of the voting form, and will be included in the final voting form(the one where the choices are limited to three options for both Seattle and gaming). I want to urge everyone to participate in this vote as this is the vote that narrows the selection down to three in each category. The link to the voting form is located https://goo.gl/forms/wyumcQaDZgGpCfNz2. This form will close on July 15th. Thank you once again for taking time out of your schedules to participate.


UPDATED JULY 16TH


Well it's that time once again ladies and gentlemen. Time to unveil the winners of the first round of voting. In no particular order, we have a Heart made out of video game controllers, Oregon Trail, and the Nintendo Switch taking the top 3 spots in the video game category. As for Seattle, well let's just say that it's looking to be a toss up between old ideas and new ones! We have the Pink Elephant Car Wash, a google map image of a 1-2 block radius around the Convention Centre with a pin labeled "home" in the center, and a tie between the entire state with a PAX X on the city of Seattle and Mt. Rainier, a Salmon, and the Space Needle/ferry boat. So that's it for the first round! However, we still have a few things left to decide before a coin gets made. Just like the previous year, a colour coin will be made in conjunction with a "pure" coin. The voting form should go live tomorrow(July 17th) and will include our top choices and finishes for the coin(s)! I look forward to updating this tomorrow with a link to the new voting form! Have a great rest of your weekend!

Without further delay, I proudly present the final voting form: https://goo.gl/forms/rEYmICTN2c9Oy8Pn1. This form will close on August 1st!

    Not sure how we would but some kind of card game gaming side would be cool.
    Like MTG, Dominoin, Cards against humanity, Munchkin, etc

    handful of cards, each showing a minor cut of a previous west logo or LE symbol perhaps

    The one problem with having a handful of cards is that the detail may get lost on something the size of a coin...As for the other side, I'll suggest the Pink Elephant car wash.

    A little off topic, but is there anyway of getting older PAX coins? I missed out on the first one for sure, possibly the second also.

    PS, you folks rock for doing these each year.

    I don't think so. When they get made they are one time runs. Also we have used so many different manufacturers over the years it is probably impossible to track them all down.

    I have one from last year if anyone is interested @MrBigB . Just thought I'd let you know in case you wanted last year's coin...
    Also thank you to everyone who has submitted an idea so far. I'd also like to say that the idea post will remain open until at least after E3, so in case any ideas come off of that event, you can include it as well! :smile:

    The best ways to get one would be to post here and see if people have extras. The first few are really hard to find these days.

    The original manufacturer we used went out of business so there is no hope of getting more from them. I think I have a few extras of 12' through 15' (the ones I organized) and I usually hand one or two out at Pax to someone who tracks me down looking for them.

    My (small) suggestion for the landmark would be CenturyLink Field for the reason that it's home to the Seattle Sounders, who won the first major sports championship for Seattle in a long time. Went from last in the league to winning it all.

    As for its ties to gaming, they're sponsored by Xbox and actually had a big presence last year on the con floor. They filmed a ton of promos and even wore GoW 4 jerseys during matches to help promote the game. A ton of the players are big gamers and really talked up the convention on social media.

    Maybe not the best suggestion, but one that I thought I might as well throw out there!

    So this is new to me, how would one go about getting one of these coins once they are done? They sound quite cool.

    Does anyone have an extra of last year's coin? Money was super tight for me, so I wasn't able to get one, but it's probably the one I'd like to have the most.

    I'm not sure how one would do this since voting has already started, but it'd be great to have the "or" answers split up into individual options. Also combining the options that are essentially duplicates would be nice as well, although I suppose that's easy enough to do after the fact.

    Thought I did this. Oh well, I can combine the options that are duplicates once voting ends. Not that it really matters right now...It seems like the winners are ahead by quite a margin.

    I'm sorry to disappoint you S2000Gan and SutibunRi. Unfortunately, the people have spoken, and there's very little I can do to make all of you happy. If I change the gaming side options, there will inevitably be some people that are unhappy with the choices.

    I've also posted the form in the original post, so go vote on that! It will close on August 1st!

    Is there any significance or milestones behind Oregon Trail this year besides retro games becoming popular again and Washington's proximity to Oregon?
