I really want all 9 colors, but can't spend $140. Here's how I want to split with someone in the Seattle area.
For your $50, you'll get 9 colors of gems, 20 in each color (180 gems). If you pledge on your own, for $55, you'll get 20 in each color of only EIGHT colors, so it's a great deal to go in on this together.
The shapes on the gems have changed a little bit since the prototypes were created. Here's what they're actually making:
I will coordinate delivery to you anywhere in the Seattle area. And just to sweeten the deal even more, if you put in $50 for 180 gems, I'll throw in the four rolls of pennies ($2) you'll need to assemble them. I'll also throw in one of the special backer tokens (which can be used as a start-player token) which will cost me $1.
Dave estimates delivery next month, so this is nearly instant gratification.
I'd love to save us both some money while getting these gorgeous tokens (we plan to use them for PnP games).
