If you just want the coins (not the game etc) then pledge the basic $2 level and add on the amount you need on top for the coins you want.

A large pack of 32x 1 with 16x 5 for $15
Or multiples of 10x any of the 1, 2, 3, 5, 10 for $5 each.

You'll get a survey when the kickstarter has finished asking what you want, just need to make sure you've backed with enough $ for what you are after.

Includes worldwide shipping as well by the looks of it. From reading the comments these aren't anodized but I think they are made by the same company that makes the ones Apreche (and others) use in his videos.

Yeah, while interested in the game anyway, part of the reason I'm planning to back it was to use the coins for ANR.

The game looks really good too! If only I had an extra $50-100

Will the coins be available for purchase after the Kickstarter ends?

These look awesome...but how do you get just the coins? There is a lot going on on that KS page.

EDIT: It looks like you can pledge for "Just the extras" and then the coins...correct? So $2 + $5 per set of coins?

Man - if it weren't for the coloring I might use this to replace my team covenant credits - the purple 5's just seem too weird.

I actually find the coloring to be nice, as the Minion metal tokens seem a bit harder to distinguish based on coloring alone.

Ok....I'm not entirely stupid, but can someone help me navigate through the muck of this Kickstarter page.

Under "Stretch Rewards" there are Metal Credits at $35,000 (reached) and Metal Credits #2 at $55,000 (reached). A $50 pledge gives you the game and all Stretch goals. Great. I'll spend a little more and buy the game just for the metal coins..... However, upon looking more closely, is it true that the two metal coin stretch goals simply unlock the ability for you to pay extra and purchase the coins from them!!?? Is this correct?

Ok. I see it now ALL THE WAY AT THE BOTTOM. "Extras." I don't know if they are intentionally being deceptive about how they advertise the Metal Credits stretch goals. It very much looks, at first glance, that they come free with the game if reached. Other than the little and vague statement, "You can now pre-order metal credits", it really seems like they would be free. It seems like it would be much more honest if that disclaimer on the stretch goal advert read, "you can now pre-order metal credits for an additional pledge." or something like that.

So the question is, now that I have pledged my $2 + $40 for credit sets, how do they know which ones I want? Will they ask later?

As the time for shipping approaches, they'll send you a survey. You just have to make sure you've pledged enough to pay for what you ask on that survey.

Got it, thanks.

*checks math* $15 set + $25 for 1x 1c, 2x 2c and 2x 3c...seems right.

The game looks to be a re-skinned 7 Wonders, which I don't mind. Do you know if the retail version is discounted in places like CoolstuffInc and MiniatureMarket?

It looks to use some of the same mechanics, but definitely not a reskin. There are quantifiable resources (energy) and geographic placement bonuses. 7 Wonders has neither of these major mechanics.

My thoughts exactly. Though I think I could probably dye them pretty easily in more metallic colors.

Yes it will be, it's been picked up for distribution in the US later this year.

I saw these earlier and thought they were aces. I swear I've starred Among the Stars on Kickstarter at least three times and each one just so happens to end right when I have the least fungible assets. Plus, the waiting!

I use the mini poker chip set.

Red = Meat damage
Blue = Tagged
Green = Bad publicity
White = Advance
Black = Misc.

I pick whatever for the credits, ie if I'm playing corp, I can easily use red, blue, and black.

It is more if 7 Wonders and Suburbia had a kid. In space.

I didn't feel the theme in it as much as Suburbia, but it is a decent game.
