I can't think of how to do it besides adding metal coins. Blue acrylic crystals for power maybe? Thoughts?

I have added metal coins, colour specific acrylic crystals and worker meeples from the same guy who does the d and deeples.
Does that count?

P.S. Those of us in Canada are still waiting impatiently for your game! Jk

Great ideas for color specific crystals. Did you find a multipack somewhere or just bought 7 baggies?

So sorry about the shipping!

Now to find a good worker substitute...

I Kickstarted a "GripMat" with the Argent logo that will hopefully arrive someday. It's for placing the university room tiles on. As I don't actually have it yet I can't comment on whether it's actually any good.

For other upgrades I would consider replacing all of the cardboard tokens: marks, influence, merit badges, first player key, locks, intelligence, and wisdom.

This might work for wisdom: http://www.meeplesource.com/proddetail.php?prod=Paper

This might work for merit badges: http://www.meeplesource.com/proddetail.php?prod=SilverShield

You could use real vintage keys and locks for first player and lock tokens, which you could probably find on ebay or at craft stores.
Are you sure the game you're upgrading this way is Terra Mystica?

I grabbed some purple beads from a craft shop. They turned out a bit small, but they're still nice.

I just added metal coins, I'm glad I read this thread of I wouldn't have thought of it!

I mean, I could always search the database but if you don't think it's good enough to give a simple "I think it's great" then I'll just wait for someone else to get it and see how good it is.

The expansion tray is separate, but yes if you get both trays, it'll fit.

I added the chocolate coins with foil wrapping.

This puts a severe handicap on my wife.

Asking the author of a game whether he recommends it isn't really fair.

I like to serve up softballs. At least someone said something . Hadn't heard of the game before today and now I have. The gameplay looks pretty involved - which is right up my alley.

In fairness, he wasn't asking me. I'm TOTALLY unbiased, of course.

The guy he was asking customized his figurines for my game, so I'm guessing he would recommend it to, but probably unsubscribed to the thread already.

You already have an expansion out for the game? BGG says the expansion was released BEFORE Consortium....

They were both delayed. I corrected the base game entry, but not the expansion. Thanks for pointing this out!

I've considered getting the game trayz, I guess I haven't pulled the trigger on those because they aren't a full game insert like the one they have for Euphoria.

The idea of metal coins is great, but I don't want to strain my back when I pick up the box and I'm already grunting a little when I go to get it off the shelf.

My copy of TM is almost completely trashed. 200 plus live plays and tons of travel across the city has nearly destroyed it.

I'll be waiting for the special edition. Or maybe save $300 for a possible Designer Edition a la Smallworld.

Heat printed wooden boards with slots for all the player pieces.
Priests sculpted and painted in the shapes of all the factions.
Stone rings for the expansion faction starting circles.
Beehived hex board with fitted wooden terrain tiles.
10 sculpted bridges [with slots to insert player color.]
A vertical cult track with slots to insert priests
Other crazy KS / ulele stuff.

As for Argent. It is a good a very unique game in its combination of systems. I would say more, but that is Trey's job.
