    Been out of the loop for a bit, glad to see the coin is already in development. Ready to get in on it whenever it is done!

    So, we know what the location side will be, we know it will be ribbed, in gold, and we'll order both colour and regular coins.

    But! We still need to figure out what will be on the Gaming side.

    Previously, we talked about:

    SNES Classic Mini
    MAME cabinet
    Raspberry Pi Retro-pi machine
    Would you kindly"
    Mario Star
    PAX coat of arms
    It's dangerous to go alone! Take this

    And I made an image with the PAX coat of arms with, "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this" around it.


    Any further thoughts?

    I'm going to throw in a few votes for "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this."... Ideally, I'd love to see the old man giving Link the challenge coin, but even the crest with that text works. The scene with the old man and Link may prove difficult as the coin itself would be tiny. On the other hand, having an 8-bit coin (like the ones from Super Mario Bros) would be kind of awesome.

    If we end up doing two coins (one color and one non-color), is it possible to do one in gold and one in the second place silver for added variety? Didn't know if this tacks on considerable cost or if that was an option.

    I don't know...but I can ask

    For the record, when I said "having an 8 bit coin", I meant that the old man would be handing Link an 8 bit coin with the text. That last comment got me thinking, however, about an actual 8-bit-styled challenge coin. Since we voted for gold and all....if only. lol

    Nah, the company would have to make a whole new mold just for our coins, rather than just changing the face molds. Would end up costing the company far too much, plus they would make a minimum order number of say, ten thousand or so.

    Also I vote that the color version(If there is one this year) To be gold, and perhaps the black and white to be silver.

    Hence the “if only...lol” part. Not realistic, but would be cool if they could.

    all the polls closed, so what is the art we are looking at at this point. I haven't overlooked posts of the pictures, have I?

    Here is my bad Photoshop version of the coin. Thoughts?


    **Note: Dates will change on the final version

    I talked with Kiddercorp, they told me that there is no extra cost for different finishes. So, we could do that if people wanted

    Love the photoshop work!

    I think in order to make the text uniform size and allow more room for the graphics, we should also have "It's dangerous to go alone!" and "Take this." be in semi circles above and below the graphics. Then the man and the coin can be a little bit bigger. Also, in the game, all of the letters are capitalized. Should we follow suit? I'd vote for keeping it as authentic as we can in terms of size/punctuation, with the exception of bending the text in semi circles in order to fit the curve of the coin.

    I agree with the semi circles for the lettering. I am unsure how to do that in GIMP...but I am sure Kiddercorp knows :)

    I'd be ok with all of the letters being capitals

    Forum has been kind of quiet, so unless I hear otherwise, I will send Kiddercorp the design for the coin as presented with Gold for the colour coin and Silver for the regular coin Thursday evening or Friday morning :)
