About

Hi, I'm Anthony Christou, the creator of the comic series and card game Luminous Ages! I have had the pleasure to also work on Path of Exile and many other cool video games. My art work has won international and national awards for digital and traditional painting. This year my work has been a finalist on four awards. Recently I was a finalist and won an award with the incredibly prestigious Art Olympia  in Tokyo Japan.  

I have also been a massive fan of Trading Card Games (TCGs) since they were this crazy new thing that no one heard of. They even inspired me to create my own Card Game, Luminous Ages. For this reason I want to give back to the community that has given me so much by releasing my own high quality tokens and playmats, products that I would love to have as a player myself. 

 Bring on the Shiny!

The focus of this Kickstarter is my new shiny tokens. Each token is printed with a beautiful metallic holographic sheen to them and boxed in a carefully designed flip box. Each box will include 36 token cards. While I have experience making and printing cards this will be the first time I've made a premium set of cards like this and that's why I need your help.

LIMITED EDITION SHINY TOKENS!

The shiny tokens will be limited edition to the absolute maxiumum of 1000 boxes ever made thats it. But it is also likey if we get 300 orders  the most we will ever manufacture is 500! Meaning these are limited edition and rare!!

Sample

 ONLY 500 OR 1000 WILL ME MADE Based upon kickstarter orders!

You may say why shiny Tokens?

The art is a large part of what drew me to TCGs and tokens are one area in which players can really show their personal art taste since they are less restricted. I wanted to create tokens that people would be proud to use during their games and would make everyone gasp in envy. That is why I want to release this set of tokens and made them shiny. Growing up with TCGs there was just something special when you got a shiny card and I wanted to capture that feeling with this collection. 

Tokens

All tokens will feature my art and will have a beautiful metalic holographic sheen to them. They will be packaged in a sturdy custom flip box. 

When the project launches each box will contain 36 cards; 28 unique with duplicates of some designs to fill out the 36 box. With your support I will be able to include a larger range of cards. Limited Edition to 500 or absolute maximum of 1000 depending on kickstarter support!

All Current Unique Designs for Tokens

Currently in the box:


PLAYMATS

Playmats have been another long term favourite of both me and my fans. I often sell playmats at conventions and my online store but I'm constantly selling out of my more popular designs. From selling playmats I have also noted one other thing, people want bigger mats. The moment I started selling playmats in larger sizes people wanted them instead. 

To answer this demand I'm offering playmats in two larger than standard sizes which will feature some of my most recent and most popular artworks. These designs often sell out at conventions so this is the best way to make sure you get the design you want. The playmats available through this Kickstarter will not only be larger than standard but feature edge stitching for added durability.

FAQ

Q. Will these token boxes be available later?

A. Yes I'll order a small extra number to sell on my online store and at conventions. However I expect this to be a popular item that will sell out fast and will be more expensive.

Q. Will these playmats be available later?

A. Some will be available on my online store and at conventions. However the variety will be much smaller. This is your only chance to guarantee you get the gaming mat you want.

Q.  I love your art! Where can I see more of what you do?  

A. Thank you. I always love hearing about people enjoying my art. You can find more at my website https://www.achristouart.com/ . I'm also active on my Art Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/AnthonyChristouArt/ 

Risks and challenges

I have previously worked with both my supplier of cards and playmats and have already recieved samples from both suppliers.
I have been making playmats and cards since 2014 and I have always delivered them to fans. My team and I have fulfilled many Kickstarters before, with only some minor delays.
Delays are mostly caused by conventions and manufacturers however even then I always do my best to keep everyone up to date and well informed. I may also be delayed a bit if it this Kickstarter becomes a big success and I need to create a lot of new art, again I will keep people up to date. And you will get your product, I haven't failed to deliver yet.
