About

Trashy Tokens mashes up two things I love from when I was growing up: 1980s sticker cards and 1990s collectable card games. 

Certain fantasy card games you might have heard of use objects called “tokens” during play. Players typically use the “official” tokens that come in packs of those games. Some people get creative/lazy by using stuff like batteries, coins, ketchup packets, or whatever else is nearby. If you’re like me, though, you want to customize your gameplay experience in style.

And so we get Trashy Tokens, a collectable card game supplement that's unique and hilarious. They'll tell your opponent you came to party, and when they let your guard down because you’re so chill, you’ll swing in for the win and wreck face.

I've teamed up with local Chicago artist Lisa Pangborn to create these funny 1980s sticker card-styled creatures. We're starting with five to get the ball rolling -- an angel, a dragon, a goblin, a vampire and a zombie -- but of course we've got big ideas to do more. We're printing the art on actual sticker cards, so you can stick them wherever you want… even on top of the “official” tokens if that’s your thing. Just like the 80s cards, ours also feature fun comics and facts on the back.

So let's get funded and bring some retro flare to our magical tournaments! It’s been so much fun creating this project, and I'm excited to share it with you. Thanks for visiting! And you can share it too from our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TrashyTokens/


Original funding will support 5 tokens; Angels, Dragons, Goblins, Vampires and Zombies. I've worked with Chicago-based artist Lisa Pangborn to create some  hilarious concepts and once we get funded, She's blocked some time off  to get working on final renderings. 

Note that the layout and design of these tokens are concepts and not the final look and feel.

But we don't want to stop there. Once we get funded, we're going to add more tokens with our stretch goals.

We don't have to stop at three. We'll keep going as far as we can.

And you'll get to keep the concept sketches! If you fund a 'You're The Boss' pledge, we'll send you the concept sketches that you helped create.

Trashy Tokens will be stickers! We've found a printer where we can print Trashy Tokens as stickers on one side with fun gags on the card stock backing, just like 80s sticker cards. There will be some special comics and rewards that you could use during game play. The stickers are also great for labeling your card boxes. Use the matching color Trashy Token to represent what's in the box. So make sure you get duplicate sets.

Full Art Foils! We've found another printer that can print out foil cards. As appreciation to you, we're going to offer a set of full art (no border) tokens with foil stamping. This special edition set will only be printed from this Kickstarter. These will be extremely rare and will never get reprinted after this Kickstarter. Note that these tokens will not be stickers.

Full Art Foils will only be available right here. (Note that the zombie art used on this Kiskstarter and other marketing material is not the final art, but will be very similar.)

Risks and challenges

Financially the only expensive item is commissioning the artist. If we happen to lose her, then we may struggle getting another artist at the same rate and talent. That would be a big set back. But she's committed to this project and excited. Another challenge we could face is that we could be really successful and could possibly over stretch our artist if we fund too many tokens. If that were to come, we'll have to either cap the amount of tokens we produce or find another artist to help out. But we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
