2018 PAX Unplugged Challenge Coin

edited June 7 in PAX Unplugged
The dates have been set, tickets have gone on sale, and it's time to start thinking about the 2018 challenge coin! I think last year's turned out really well, and thanks to SutibunRi for carrying that project to completion. I hope to help out a bit more this year in the planning stages, so I'm jumping in and starting off this thread. I'm really excited to see how Unplugged will evolve from the lessons learned from the first year!

Last year's coin was finalized on having the Liberty Bell on the face, a Catan board on the reverse, and finished with a black nickel.

This year's coins from other PAX, if you're curious:
PAX Aus 2017
PAX South 2018
PAX East 2018
PAX West 2018 (still in development)



If you have any ideas for the new coin, please fill out the form I have made!
2018 PAX Unplugged Challenge Coin Idea form



Ideas unused from last year: (please still submit these using the form so I can see how much interest there is for the different designs!)
Independence Hall
Rocky Statue
Skyline

RPG Dice
Dungeon Master behind a DM Screen
Gaming Table


We wouldn't need to necessarily stick to any official rotation, but since we did a board game last year, perhaps RPGs or miniatures would be good to represent this year.

We're aiming to get the design finalized by Sept 21st, so we've got some time, but the more ideas we can bounce around, the better!

    Friendly reminder ping for folks who got coins last year.

    I'm pretty excited for Unplugged this year, and helping with coin planning, so I made up some mockups. Please feel free to ask for some different designs or locations. There's also a suggestion form in the OP and the interest form above this post.

    I made these mockups with the same black nickel metal color in mind, and I've seen now where they fill the outer band on the color coins with black, which really can make the coins pop and gives some good contrast. So I've reflected that here.

    Gaming - I added a 20-sided ring on the inside with numbers (as evenly distributed as I could figure out) where you could potentially spin the coin and then whichever side faces the GM would be your "roll".

    I like the idea of the 20 ring on the inside. I wonder how it would affect the image in the center for Kiddercorp. I also wonder if they could add a spinner like the LE pins this year
