I tried the game already once as a 2 player game and it felt quite good. I'm looking forward to trying it with 3-4 players as well.

I was pretty surprised though when I opened the box I bought from Essen, because instead of 8 gold discs, the box contained 8 big gold squares. I'm wondering whether this was an intentional change or an accident? Or am I the only one who ended up with a special copy?

Kristian, what was the reasoning behind the square coins? Was it a cost thing later during production?

We had our first game of Capital Lux last night, which was fun, but everyone though the square coins looked a bit silly, especially given the fact they didn't match the circular images on the cards and in the rules.

The copy of the game in Dan King's video has big, round, wooden, coins!

I want those!

Squares are weird.

Just got a copy from miniature market or coolstuffinc, can't remember, but one of the two.

I have squares -_- .

I feel like it's a little silly to ask, but are they considering mailing replacements since they're meant to be discs?
