*** THESE COINS WILL NOT BE FOR SALE AT YOUR LOCAL OR ONLINE STORE UNLESS THEY BACKED US HERE ***
While we still have supplies you can find them on our website: http://www.MinionGames.com
NOTICE 1: We have a planning worksheet you can download here:
NOTICE 2: After this campaign has ended, you will get a survey from us and then a link to use BACKERKIT.COM which will collect your ala-carte and coin choices for us. You will be allowed to add any 50 coins if you backed the earlier Hegemonic campaign.
NOTICE 3: The collector set ala-carte option has become real attactive at this point getting you 1 of each of the 14+ coins added to your order for a simple $5 over-pledge. Consider doing this to help meet the stretch goals!
Final versions of the coins:
Many of the backers of our recently successful Kickstarter project Hegemonic have indicated they would like to see a new campaign to get more sets of coins.
So we bring to you this fast-tracked campaign to see if we can sell enough coins to make more and better ones. Help us get more and better coins!
They will be sure to add a great feel and glitz to any game. These wonderful futuristic metal coins/tokens measure:
32mm x 19mm and 2mm thick
These coins are made out of zinc and weigh about same as a USA penny. The coins are two sided with different images on 3 categories of coins. The images shown here are mostly complete designs but some aspects may change slightly.
50 comparable coins from another publisher would cost you over $37. We are making a low margin just so we can have these for our board game and thus only charging you $12 (less than half) for 50 coins!
ALA CARTE MENU
The following items in this ala-Carte menu are items you can purchase with your coins to help us reach a higher total dollars pledged on this campaign which in turn will allow us to reach more stretch goals! To purchase anything from this menu, simply click on the MODIFY PLEDGE and add the $ amount extra to your pledge amount for the items you want. At the end of this campaign you'll get a survey request or be directed to a site that will ask you what all your over payments were for.
NOTE: The custom art sleeves are only for Hegemonic
ABOUT THE COINS INCLUDED IN HEGEMONIC:
The base game of Hegemonic that will be able to be purchased in stores will contain around 100 cardboard coins. The Hegemonic game bought in the Kickstarter campaign will also include these 100 cardboard coins but you get the free 50 metal coins from the stretch goal. These 50 coins will be made of 1 CAP and 5 CAP coins and will NOT include any 10 CAP coins even if we make the stretch goal here. If you want 10 or greater CAP coins the ONLY way to get them is to pledge to this campaign.
UPDATE: Your Kickstarter copy of Hegemonic will ship with 35 x 1s and 15 x 5s unless you tell us to override that. The suggested complement to those coins is the 50 COIN reward with 10 x 10s, 15 x 5x, 25 x 1s. Thus, you'd get 6 bags of 1s, 3 bags of 5s, and 1 bag of 10s in your shipment.
At this level, we'll open up pledge reward levels that include a 10 CAP coin design. Reaching this goal would most likely make the 1 CAP coin copper, 5 CAP silver, and the new gold would be 10 CAP. If this level is reached we'll put in a reward tier that has a heavy amount of 10 CAPs for those who got their caps from the Hegemonic Kckstarter.
At this goal we will create a 25 CAP coin that is a bit longer then the other coins. We have yet to find out what color it'll be as China is on a 2 week break for the New Year. Here is a possible design:
DIFFERENT SIZED COINS
To help tell the coins apart we'll produce higher denomination coins in slightly large sizes. The 25+ CAP will be longer then the 1, 5, and 10 CAP.
34mm x 19mm and 2mm thick
This stretch goal will give the coins a head and tails. In other words a different image will be on the back side instead of just having the same image on both sides. Leading ideas are a galactic scene and something directly related to Hegemonic.
At this goal we will create a 100 CAP coin. We have yet to find out what color it'll be as China is on a 2 week break for the New Year, more info soon...
Colors and shape may change but this stretch goal gains us a 2 CAP coin.
At this goal we will create a 50 CAP coin. We were told they could do any basic PANTONE color on the coins so we're testing response to some... Let us know your thoughts in comments. Here is another possible 'tails' side image too.
Colors and shape may change but this stretch goal gains us a 500 CAP coin.
36mm x 19mm and 2mm thick
Colors and shape may change but this stretch goal gains us a 250 CAP coin.
36mm x 19mm and 2mm thick
Colors and shape may change but this stretch goal gains us a 1000 CAP coin.
36mm x 19mm and 2mm thick
We will pack your new coins in a velvet bag! Only 1 bag is included for this stretch goal. That should hold about 150-200 coins.
+ BONUS SURPRISE 20 CAP COIN! +
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT!
If you guys and gals are so crazy to get us to this stretch goal, I'm just out of ideas. No more coins, 15 is enough! So how about a second bag to hold all those extra coins in.
OK, just kiddin' around!
What to do for a specail 100k reward? Well how could it be anything but a 100k coin? Now you can go buy that cool new space ship with CASH baby!
We have successfully run 7 previous Kickstarter campaigns so please pledge with confidence.
- If you pledged for Hegemonic kickstarter you do not have to pay any shipping unless we can't fit all your coins in the one box. This would be around 200+ coins. We will by default open your Hegemonic box to stuff coins in it and reseal it. You can opt out of that. So for larger coin counts added to Hegemonic please include a second shipping charge.
- If you are in only buying coins (and maybe a trinket or two in the ala-carte) you only need to pay the shipping price listed in the reward level. No second shipping charge is required.
- If you are in the EU or CANADA or MEXICO you pay $15 for each box shipped.
- If you are anywhere else in the world you pay $25 per box shipped.
Here is an image of some coins made by the manufacturer we are using, they are not the same exact color or size or anything, just an example of their work:
Since people keep asking me, these Roman coins were made for this kickstarted game. I have them in my hands and they are nice.
Risks and challenges
There should be minimum amount of risk as we've run several Kickstarter campaigns in the past. We have a final quote from the printer making Hegemonic for the addition of these coins and wish to make them at the same time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The final colors are still up for choice - if we reach the 10 CAP the 1's will probably become copper and the 5's silver and 10's gold. But if we don't make that we'll probably stick with Silver for 1s and Gold for 5s. I'm also checking on other options yet.
I will have some of these coins shipped to our Europe partner and we'll have them at the Essen Game Fair so, if you want to pick up your coins at ESSEN you do not need to pay shipping. You'll be asked in the survey after the campaign if you'd like to take this pickup option.
Our testing shows 20 ones and 10 fives is all you ever need per player. That said, I would say 100 total coins is just fine for 6 player Hegemonic and that's roughly the count of the cardboard ones that come in the game. 150 would mean you never have any issues of trading in for change.
