Update #1

Progress Two Ways

Comment

Fun! Exciting! So far so good! Thanks!

I already mentioned that the orange token's icon was going to be replaced with a crescent moon. Here's an image file showing what I'm planning to use for the iconography for the final PennyGems:


Changes: I've added a URL to the white. The droplet on the red has been subtly re-designed. (I didn't like the prototype one; too skinny and a little lopsided.) Orange: obviously, the moon. Black: a much chunkier spiral, which should be a bit easier to count the points on. It also looks more dangerous, although I don't know if that's a good thing or not. 

Finally, a closer view of the ninth color. Since the first color, white, has a zero-point shape, it seems unavoidable (at least to us Terry Pratchett fans) to call the ninth color "Octarine" with its eight-pointed cross. I'll probably discuss in a bit more detail why these particular shapes and colors in a later update, but for now, I'll just say that, while I felt that only a cross would do for octarine, I also didn't want any specific cross. I'm rather pleased with the non-specific medieval-ish feel of this one.

    Horse of a Different Color: Labels to make 800 PennyGems in up to eight colors _of your choosing!_ Pastels, your wedding colors, eight shades of nearly-black for Gothic Game Night, or whatever other colors a CMYK printer can create. For the "International" version, add $44. If you're feeling extra clever, you can even assign different colors to the front and back of each Gem, so what you really get is 16 groups of 100 labels. (Remember, it takes two labels to make a PennyGem.) Eight groups will be a single solid color. The other eight will have one of the eight standard icons, each on a solid color.

    The Game's Afoot! Since it's hard to imagine what anybody would do with 8,640 PennyGems, we'll provide you with expert assistance. Not only will you receive nearly one thousand PennyGems in each of the nine colors, but game designer James Ernest will create a game based on your input for you to play with your new hoard. The game will be published with you receiving credit as the person who commissioned the game.
