Hi all,

I shopped around for some acrylic credit tokens and didn't really find any that I liked so I found a guy on Etsy to make me some custom ones. Here's what we came up with. I decided to keep it generic by modeling them more after real life cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin instead of something Netrunner specific. This way they could be used in other scifi games.



What do you think?

If you want some of your own, contact Roberto Sand on Etsy. Tell him I sent you. $60 for 50 tokens in mixed denominations.

Pretty cool, but the 25 one is useless (and yes I know it's not that hard to get to 30+ creds but do you really need that 25 of them would be on 1 chip I think not). Would be better if there was 2 instead of 25. 2 is useful for so many things (Armitage Codebusting, Magnum Opus, Daily Casts, Eve Campaign...)

I personally love using these http://www.miniongames.com/store/accessories/metal-coins.htm... for my credit tokens. Love the clink sound they make.

I own x2 of the 1s, 2s, 3s and 5s.

I got the 25 more with future uses in mind. For me, this was not just about Netrunner but expanding my gaming rig. I have these gold dragons for A Game of Thrones (or other fantasy games) and now these credit tokens for scifi games.

Although, 25 credit tokens would get a little more use now that GRNDL and GRNDL Refinery are out there.

Yeah I saw those in Apreche's videos...they look really nice. Makes me wish I had been able to do the KS for them, would have been much cheaper.

Yeah, a guy in my play group has those. They're nice. I think Minion Games is out of stock of all except 1s though.

What you have to think about though, is how often are you going to be spending 25 credits all at once? Essentially you are just converting to a 25-credit chip and then having to convert back when you go to spend it.

No!!!!! They just recently restocked! It's limited stock until they get their shipment in 3 months. I've been getting friends to order now if they want to grab some.

I hear ya. 25s might not be that useful for Netrunner. I'm just thinking outside this one game is all.

LOL! Nice! What are those tokens you're using for virus counters?

I like them, but instead of 25, I'd rather see 3.

I really like these tokens that Team Covenant put out. "Like" as in I like how they look but can't justify buying them (yet).

I bought a set of these (actually two) and I love them. If you're not using dice to count your money I highly suggest them.

The guy who owns Minion owns a store a half-mile from my work. He noted that they're going to make more, and sell them direct.

If they had 2- and 3- credit tokens as well, it would be an insta-buy from me. As is, I might still get some but I'd rather enhance my gameplay experience in addition to having snazzy-looking tokens than just the latter.

Went to potentially order some, and noticed the 3s were gone off the site.

Just bought a bunch of 1s, 3s, and 5s. If anyone wants to buy any for what I paid for them, LMK.

How many sets of each metal token do you think would be enough for 2 players?

I was thinking 2x of 1s, 2s and 3s, and 1x of 5s. But maybe more 1s and less 3s?
