      We sent an email out to all the people that opted in to receiving emails from us in the future. Other than that, we didn't really think to post about pirate coins here.

    2. Creator Derik on January 28, 2013

      Wish you'd have let us know here that you were having another project. Probably could have got a few more backers.

    3. Creator Michael Jacob on April 18, 2012

      Got mine today, ironically while I was typing a comment on the Roll20 Kickstarter project about using tokens (such as coins)...
      They look great, but as people who know me know, I always have to point out flaws. Sorry, can't help it, that's my nature ;)...: They don't stack as nicely as real coins.

    4. Creator Robert Schultz on April 13, 2012

      I got my three chests with the coins a few days ago. We used them for the first time last night!
      We played the game Navegador and the coins were a HUGE hit. Everyone loved how they have a nice weight to them, how they are shiny and come in copper, silver and gold. How they sound clanging together, the chests to keep them in. Everyone wanted to buy some and were sad that it was a kickstarter they were not a part of. I should have taken a picture, but didn't :( Anyways, GREAT JOB and thanks for making it a reality :)

    5. Creator Mused Fable on April 7, 2012

      All of the remaining orders will be shipped out on Monday, April 9th. All of our wonderful backers will have their coins very soon.

    6. Creator Randy Warner on April 6, 2012

      any more shipping updates?

    7. Creator Jefferson Ridpath on April 2, 2012

      Received my "King's Bounty" today in Toronto, Canada. The coins look and feel great and I can't wait to get them to the table at our regular Friday night gaming group. Thank you, and well done!

      I know a few members of my group will want to order their own when they are available through your store :-)

    8. Creator Robert T. on April 1, 2012

      Very sad, No package yet! Waiting to hold these in my grubby hands.

    9. Creator Michael John Lapid on March 29, 2012

      Being a bit forgetful, I wasn't expecting such a small but heavy package in the mail today. But it was your awesome coins! Thanks for such a great project!

    10. Creator Mused Fable on March 27, 2012

      We will be selling the coins in April on our website Musedfable.com (there's nothing there currently though). We will be sending out an email to the people who wanted to be on our mailing list to let you know when it's ready. :D

    11. Creator Julia Gosztyla Ziobro on March 27, 2012

      Realm Coins was the first Kickstarter project I backed (and the only one of 20 I've received anything for, to date LOL) and I have to say, I wish we'd kicked in for more! We got 50 of each coin and we've used them often. Mundus Novus, Puerto Rico, Runebound, and other games have all seen them brought out and used instead of the usual crappy cardboard or paper money. We even played the Realm Coins game once.

      These coins have been much admired, including at our FLGS. Any chance that it's possible to buy more?
      Thanks!

    12. Creator Jesse McGatha on March 27, 2012

      Wow... never mind. My wife just walked in the door with it!

    13. Creator Jesse McGatha on March 27, 2012

      I haven't seen my order yet either... any word?

    14. Creator Michael Young on March 26, 2012

      I backed the coins in bags (not chests) and my order has not yet been shipped. Other people have already received their coins. Have mine been shipped? I was asked for my address back in January and I have just confirmed that I gave the correct address on the survey. I have not received any e-mail that the coins were shipped.

    15. Creator Anthony on March 23, 2012

      Got my coins today! They look and feel great, even the cloth bag is of good quality.
      Great job folks.

    16. Creator Mused Fable on March 22, 2012

      Thanks everyone! We're getting close to having the orders all shipped out.

      You'll never see these any cheaper. We're actually a little annoyed with the suppliers (especially the chest supplier). We're working on trying to find locally manufactured sources (as opposed to just locally distributed). If you are a wood worker near Wausau, Wisconsin, contact us if you want to make hundreds of wooden chests. :D

    17. Creator Brian Current on March 22, 2012

      Great job! Coins look great. Pouches are nicer than I expected. Timely updates and delivery.

      Others doing Kickstarter projects - take note - this is how it is supposed to be done (as long as I don't see these on Tanga for half of what I paid for them). I am so sick of printing delays in China, exclusives that turn out later to not be exclusive, and sub standard quality components. Make it local, honor your word and have a little pride in your work like Michelle and Matt. Very pleased.

    18. Creator Gamelyn Games on March 22, 2012

      Got my coins yesterday and couldn't be happier! Great job Mused Fable! =)

    19. Creator Mike Linford on March 21, 2012

      Got mine today, very cool

    20. Creator Sonia Koval on March 21, 2012

      Mine came today & they are really neat; I like the little leather bags making it easy to know what color coin is in which. I know my giftee will enjoy them.
      (Happy Birthday, Matt!)

    21. Creator Matt Landis on March 21, 2012

      I got mine today. They look great.

      I would like to give an extra thanks for getting them delivered on my birthday with out me even telling you when it was.

      Thanks!

    22. Creator Commander Viktor Carlson on March 20, 2012

      And the coins arrived! Sweet and awesome! Still not overly happy about the "Robin Hood"-hat on the copper-coins, but that aside everything is plain awesome! (well, also, the coins could have had slightly different sizes to differentiate them abit more from eachother... But that's just nitpickin'! )

    23. Creator C. Delavaud on March 18, 2012

      Received today in France, really nice.
      Thank you!

    24. Creator Joe Norris on March 17, 2012

      Received my chests and coins yesterday and they exceeded expectations! The weight, feel, and luster on the coins is outstanding and the wooden chests are very nice. Thank you very much for all your hard work and effort! Joe

    25. Creator Jim Szymanski on March 16, 2012

      Learn to type Jim...

    26. Creator Jim Szymanski on March 16, 2012

      Love'em. Thamks

    27. Creator Mike Linford on March 15, 2012

      Still waiting. Are you sending them in order of when backed?

    28. Creator Raechel Coon on March 12, 2012

      Got my coins in the mail today, all there and they look very nice!

    29. Creator Zach Agnew on March 12, 2012

      I got my pachage here in kansas, and i seem to be a copper short, other than that, they look goot and feel nice.

    30. Creator Jamie Shaun Kuchma on March 12, 2012

      Still waiting for mine , man do i want those coins bad !

    31. Creator Diane Donaldson on March 12, 2012

      Got mine Saturday, they look great! Thanks!

    32. Creator Mused Fable on March 11, 2012

      We're only a two person operation, so as soon as we get an order packaged we ship it out the same or next day. There is no specific European ship date, as they're all sort of mixed in together. We expect to have all the orders shipped out soon.

    33. Creator Commander Viktor Carlson on March 11, 2012

      I am mirroring DELAVAUDs question. Is there a estimated arrival to us Europeans?

    34. Creator C. Delavaud on March 10, 2012

      When should we expect to receive it in europe?
      Thank you

    35. Creator Mused Fable on March 7, 2012

      The coins are lead free and made in the USA.

    36. Creator homeunit on March 5, 2012

      Got my Peasant's Stash today. Couldn't be happier. Like Aaron said they remind me of arcade tokens as well. Well done Mused Fable.

    37. Creator Aaron D. Marasco on March 3, 2012

      Got mine today. They look nice! They remind me of arcade coins. I know it's an odd question, but my three year old loves them... do you happen to know if they are lead free? I know a lot of cheaper metal products can have lead. Thanks...

    38. Creator Mused Fable on February 27, 2012

      They're about the same weight as a quarter, yes. The "silver" are a bit heavier, and the "copper" a bit lighter. They all feel like solid metal coins.

    39. Creator Zach Hoekstra on February 27, 2012

      Looking great! How much heft do they have? Do they weigh about the same as a quarter?

    40. Creator Zach Hoekstra on January 25, 2012

      When will we get a chance to see the final product? I'd love a sneek peek!

    41. Creator Julian Tysoe on January 16, 2012

      Congratulations on such a successful debut Kickstarter!

    42. Creator Zach Agnew on January 16, 2012

      Even an extra couple coins would be cool Delavaud, right? haha

    43. Creator C. Delavaud on January 14, 2012

      So we are between 20 and 25k so the "meaninful profit" are near, congrats for your project!

      Can we hope a little bonus? Like free shipment or extra coins?

      Thank you again for your project!

    44. Creator Heather Davis on January 13, 2012

      Very cool and you're from Madison so I had to get some..Congrats on quadrupling your goal. Go Madison WI!!!

    45. Creator Mused Fable on January 8, 2012

      At this point, we have enough funding so we can buy extra coins to sell after the kickstarter. In fact, we'll have enough extra coins that the profits will let us order even more coins. It's like a perpetual coin machine. :D

      We'll have a website up for our publishing company, Mused Fable. First, we're going to fulfill all the kickstarter orders. That means we'll have the website launched in the beginning of March.

    46. Creator Jamie Shaun Kuchma on January 8, 2012

      after kickstarter is done , can we still buy more of these coins at a later date , or is that it ?, cause i NEED MOAR COINS!!!!!!

    47. Creator Jeffrey Reed on January 7, 2012

      I got Dominion for xmas this year, and I think these coins would be a fantastic addition to the game, used in conjunction with the Treasury cards......

    48. Creator Mused Fable on January 7, 2012

      We've added bonus game rules and logo stamped pouch. You can see the announcement here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1095993227/realm-coins/posts

      We can't offer extra coins or anything that costs too much because there isn't actually that much profit. At 5k we only broke even (we started the project with the minimum goal only rewarding us with the ability to buy our own coin set). We are at 18k now and that's just a bit more than the point where we make enough profit to get enough extra coins made to sell them so we can make enough to keep re-ordering coins (a perpetual coin machine).

      The kickstarted rewards include shipping ($5 or $10), bags or chests ($12 or $25 retail, but we offer them at wholesale cost), and there is the physical raw cost of the metal in the coins that makes up roughly 40% of the total price (that's not counting the cost of making the steel dies). On top of that kickstarter and amazon payments take 8-10% off the top. If we make it to 20k or even 25k we might start to see a meaningful profit.

    49. Creator Nathan Canadas on January 7, 2012

      Can you put another bonus? Like some extra coins/dice/something else if we reach 20,000? cuz that will make 4 x the pledge!
