    Not a graphic artist but, I would like to see how the following would look like.
    1. D20 art with text "in D20 we trust"
    2. Meeple art with text "in Meeple we trust"
    3. RNGesus art with text "trust in the roll" (most likely this won't pass, but still would like to see)

    Okay Folks, We've not heard from Robirex in a while, and time is running out to get these coins made on time, so I'm throwing up a quick poll, let's get some votes in!
    It's only 3 questions, check the OP for the various mockups of each type. Next poll will go for more detail.
    HERE'S THE POLL

    Edit: Hopefully Robirex shows back up and can use the poll results.

    Has nothing been said about the legality of printing random art found online?

    Try to get art images you’ve either paid for (check Etsy or patreaon), or perhaps look for a Creative Commons free (no credit) licensed work.

    Here is one example of free use images, and I think he has some game themed ones. Just google a bit for others:

    It's been brought up, but generally regarded that these pictures are just ideas, not definite uses of the art. Iirc

    Okay, I do see some notes about getting original designs. I’d be happy to help google around for something if needed, but I hardly ever check the forums.

    Are we going to have time to get them made. I want in for 3 regardless of design

    Kiddercorp asked for us to get them initial designs 6 weeks before future events, we're not exactly on schedule, but if we can get things wrapped up by Friday, we'll be at 5 weeks..

    As we had no interest sheet put up for Unplugged like I generally have for East, I have no idea the actual number of people interested in one or more coins, my plan was to be conservative and just get an initial order of 100 coins (minimum order size.)

    But instead, here's a quick little form, toss in your username/email address, the number of coins you want to buy, and it'll help me figure out if I should get a higher initial run printed.

    Interest Form

    Well, 1 fewer votes on round 2 than round 1 had, but a clear Landmark winner already. Option 3. Had 47% of the votes.

    Gaming:
    I split the vote on Wood for Sheep by putting 2 different options in. Combined the 2 have the same vote total as Option 1 does on its own.
    So I guess Option 1 wins with 35.3% of the vote!

    Metal: Black Nickel got 4 flat out votes.
    Antique Copper got 3.33 votes. (Some people couldn't just decide on one metal.)
    Not sure if I should count that as a full vote and call it a tie, or go with Black Nickel.
    Thoughts?

    I'm fine with accepting that black nickel got more dedicated votes and would win.

    Can you put the options that won up, I forgot what they look like.

    A Black Nickle coin would look awesome :D

    edit: I hadn't realized that turning off 'accepting votes' on the form completely hid the sheet, my bad.

    Can we ask Kiddercorp to enlarge the image slightly to fill the center? Then the blank areas will look like additional hexagons and not empty space.

    Can we also zoom out on the bell just the slightest amount so it's not cut off? None of the options had it perfectly centered and filling, the other options were like super far away.

    I second the comments above.
    * Zoom in on the Catan side till the corners touch the inner circle.
    * Zoom out on the Liberty Bell so that it is not cut off.
    * and I totally missed that there was an interest form. I filled in my request.

    Once the ideas get sent to Kiddercorp, they will put the correct information on it :)

    Okay, I've sent the order off to Kiddercorp, I ended up having a bit of Life come up Friday that got in the way of sending the order off as promptly as I'd have liked.
