Pulling out flat cardboard chits doesn't sound satisfying in the least. I need polyhedrals! at least 6 sided, and actually 12-sided would be more thematic (more faces=more arcane). Imagine the clamor as you stick your hand in a bag full of dice hoping against hope to pull out an elder sign.

Someone get on that. I'm good at ideas, bad at execution. Maybe some bulk custom dice and parcel it out. I'd pay $50 for a set.

What are you asking for, here? You want dice, all with the same sides?

Why stop at dice? Why not putting real tentacles, cultists, skulls, and the whole circus? I am sure that elder sign will prevent any Ancient one from being released out of the bag.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

The real solution,of course, is custom bingo balls and a bingo machine. Chaos at the touch of a button (or turning wheel if mechanical)

Too easy to distinguish by touch.

Essentially yes. Thinking about it further, I guess I could just paint numbers/symbols on glass beads or something.

Hmm, actually this is a very cool idea, like it a lot!

What about something like this site:
http://eu.q-workshop.com/customdice

They even offer custom D4 dice, which I think would also be great to grab out of the bag and line up in front of you in a little pyramid parade of elder signs...

This is a great idea! One of the reasons I like Pandemic The Cure is precisely the big bag of dice and the dread one feels every time they draw from it and roll.

Do we know the ratio of tokens for this? It says 44 on the website, but doesn't break them down.

That only matters if you're the one doing the grabbing.

Do anyone have a rough idea how much they charge for small batches of custom dice?

Team Covenant did say on their facebook that they will be doing special chaos bag tokens. No details yet on what they'll be like, but I'm really hoping they'll be laser etched wood tokens, like their Game of Thrones tokens.
