What do you recommend using instead of the cheap, plain money tokens in this game? Just looking to pimp this game out a little bit.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

I use a tray of Euro's instead of Martins awful plastic discs. As a readily available currency I don't use, it fits perfectly.

How about poker chips? Or making a simple $ track and get rid of the chips altogether?

I really like the idea of using real money. Simple nickel and penny's will work fine...just need to clean them beforehand!

Poker chips are great and classy. I'm not a big fan of resource tracks, I like to have the money in hand...just personal preference.
Thanks!

You are offering your game for strangers to have sex with?

I bought a number of packages of plastic coins that resemble American currancy packaged as play money for children and substitute these for the components representing money in some games. I bought them at Target and found them in the dollar bins near the front of the store. I'm sure a "dollar store" would carry similar.

I've also found them at teacher supply stores like Teachers Mart.

I'm a reenactor. I will be using reproduction period coins in place of the crappy plastic discs. But this may be a prohibitively expensive option.
