Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. If you don't want the prints and instead only want tokens the extra money paid toward shipping will be applied toward tokens.
For example let's say you are a $88 Goblin Chief. You are getting 240 tokens at $0.37 each. If you choose not to get the print then your shipping would be $6 instead of $15 which would give you 25 more tokens (we'll round up). So if the high cost of shipping the art prints has kept you from increasing your pledge don't let it any longer.Last updated:
Can I collect my reward over time as the new artwork comes out? That is, can I order monsters in groups of say 100 at a time as new monsters come out until the overall reward is filled?
The short answer is, yes, you absolutely can split your order up over time. At the end of the campaign everyone's Game Mash account will receive a credit for the number of tokens earned + the amount paid for shipping via KS. Please note that we don’t make a penny from shipping.
Take the Goblin King reward tier for example: Your account would be credited $288 (the retail value of 480 tokens @ 0.60 each) + the $22 shipping. So you will get a $310 credit for your $190 investment which is a huge savings over retail. You can choose not get the art print in which case you will be able to apply all but $6 toward more tokens.
The bonus rewards like the art print and limited edition tokens will go out when you decide to claim the reward (probably the first shipment).
Please note that, currently, there was a $6 shipping charge per 200 tokens b/c that was the cost of USPS Priority when the KS started. USPS has since dropped their price so everyone will get extra tokens to compensate.

In short -- very carefully. We only choose experienced cover artists that have been illustrating monster art for many years. A cover artist is an artist that is skilled enough to illustrate the cover of a rulebook or novel.
We will have legendary artists from time to time and will produce limited edition token art for their line of illustrations.
Our first legendary artist is Jeff Dee of 1st Edition AD&D fame. Many of us will remember his iconic art from the cover of modules like X1 - The Isle of Dread and A1 - Slave Pits of the Undercity. You can see more of his artwork here: http://jeffdee.deviantart.com/prints/
Jeff is currently working on one of our limited edition reward tokens. We plan on publishing a "retro" line of tokens that showcase his art.Last updated:
If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to the section titled, "Monsters for Each Goal" you can see a complete list. If we meet all stretch goals there will be more than 100 monsters to choose from and we're just getting started!Last updated:
Legendary tokens are tokens with illustrations painted by legendary artists like: Jeff Dee, Jeff Easley, Larry Elmore and others (listed in alphabetical order). These tokens will have gold borders and lettering to denote their legendary status.Last updated:
We plan on having all unlocks completed by early-mid march. The token art will pretty much be completed in the order unlocked. As the art becomes available we will show it on http://gamemash.com.
We will start shipping rewards as soon as all art is complete for a particular backer. So if you order 20, 1" bugbears for which the art is already complete then you'll probably get those in late February.Last updated:
The answer is a resounding YES! We love pathfinder and will be making tokens for use in Pathfinder adventures. We're also going to make tokens compatible with Steampunk, Gamma World and Star Frontiers! We'll do a Sci-Fi kick starter in late January or early February.Last updated:
We plan on eventually offering 1000s of illustrations in our library of tokens. As many as we can afford to make. All profits for the foreseeable will go right back into the company to make more and varied artwork.
Iconic creatures like goblins, hob gobs, skeletons, etc. will all have variations eventually. The plan is to have 1 leader, 1 rider (where applicable), 1 melee, 1 ranged and 1 magic user illustration for common monsters. The leaders and magic users will cost a *little* bit more in order to cover the cost of the artwork because they will be sold in smaller numbers.
We'll decide based on your input which variant monster tokens to add first. That having been said goblins will likely be the first monsters with variants.Last updated:
The simple answer to this is yes, absolutely, we will manufacture double sided tokens.
From the outset we had this in mind so we could show a "wounded" (i.e., bloodied) option. James Van Doren mentioned he would like the option of printing the line art on the back of the token along with stats and we agree that is a nice option so we may offer it as well.
We plan on having the double sided token perfected before rewards start going out so you will be able to order them but the cost is about 50% higher than a single sided token because of the extra labor and printing involved. So they would retail at around $1.10 US instead of $0.60 US. Also, the double sided tokens are sturdy but not magnetic.Last updated:
Yes you can and it even wipes completely clean like there was never a mark on it.Last updated:
Yes. You can order any token in any size we offer. We currently offer 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch and 4 inch tokens. Now, you can finally get that swarm of 1/2 inch Stirges you've always wanted!Last updated:
On KickStarter, it is only possible to pledge to each project once from a single account. Accordingly, backers can only choose one reward tier per pledge. However, you can change your pledge amount and reward selection for as long as a project is live.
Keep in mind that the higher the tier the cheaper the tokens are.Last updated:
