* Please note that we've improved some of the designs since the production samples were created - see the "Meet the Tokens!" section below for the most current designs.
What are GameKnight Tokens?
GameKnight Tokens are custom ceramic poker chips that have icons and images on each side. They are designed to replace commonly used tokens and markers that are frequently used with board games, collectible card games, and role playing games. GameKnight Tokens have different icons on each side which doubles their usability and helps make them more affordable.
Meet the Tokens!
The following is a list of all 21 of the GameKnight Tokens along with some recommended uses. We're sure you'll think of many other uses beyond these.
At the end of the Kickstarter, you will receive a link to our pledge manager that you will use to indicate how many of each token you want in your set.
Board Gamers - since board games use a very broad range of elements, virtually all chips would be value.
Collectible Card Games (CCGs) Players - The Token Creatures, Polarity, and Health & Fatigue Tokens would be logical choices.
Role Playing Gamers - Many of the tokens would be useful, particularly the ones that represent combat\spell conditions. We've found it convenient to place tokens under miniatures to easily track which units have given condition.
Miniature Games - Games that use miniatures are another example of how GameKnight Tokens can be used.
- GameKnight Tokens are the same size as standard poker chips which allows you to use a broad range of poker chip cases, carousels, etc.
- The chips are 39mm in diameter and weigh approximately 10g
- Tokens will be manufactured in the United States using high density solid composition materials.
- Ceramic chips are highly resistant to play wear.
- The artwork is embedded into the chip surface via a dye sublimation process - will not peel like chips that use stickers.
- Artwork - many of our token designs were created by noted artist Raymond Gaustadnes. If you are looking for Fantasy Art images, check out his site.
We are trying something different this time - all pledge levels have the same price per token. Buy what you need - same pricing.
Tokens are heavy. We use USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes for almost all orders as this is the most economical way to ship.
Note that the shipping charge we apply does not include any import duties or fees for countries outside of the United States. These duties and fees are the responsibility of the backer.
No surprises section
One of my personal pet peeves is to receive an item and find out that it falls short of my expectations. In this section I will try to give you as much information as I can, so that when you receive your tokens, they will be exactly what you expected.
Size - standard poker chip size -39mm in diameter and are approximately 3.3 mm thick and will weigh about 10 grams each.
Color - The colors on your computer screen may appear a bit more vivid than the physical product. This is true when comparing just about any physical object to an image on a screen.
Dimples - Another thing to note is that GameKnight Tokens have a small dimple on the rolling edge. This is part of the manufacturing process. It's very minor, but I wanted to make sure you were aware.

Risks and challenges
This being my fourth Kickstarter project, I am experienced in both managing the project and delivering rewards. That being said, here are the aspects of the project that are challenging:
The largest challenge will be organizing the order information as each backers reward could end up being unique as backers can select variable quantities of each of the 20 Token designs.
As with anything in life, there is always the chance for unforeseen issues, but I'm confident that I have done the proper planning to minimize the risks and can deliver my project as I have done in my past three projects.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
