I've been on a coin capsuling frenzy (Arkham Horror LCG, Forbidden Stars) and decided to get some for the counters in Orleans. I got a bunch of 22 mm capsules which fit okay, though they didn't fit so well on the beneficial deeds board. 21mm might fit better.

(Note that my counters are from the dlp Games version which fit quite nicely. I noticed while playing the Tasty Minstrel version earlier today at a convention that it has thicker counters.)

For those who don't want to upgrade to the deluxe kit this might be a cheaper option if you can get the capsules for cheap. (Found 50 capsules on ebay for less than GBP 3 pounds).

Images of the counters during play:

I did this to Arkham LCG, it never occurred to me to do it for Orleans!

Thanks, will likely do this soon...although I have the TMG version so may wait and see if anyone already has first.

Were they for the dlp or TMG version? Mine were for the dlp games counters.

I tried to do this for the TMG version but the tokens are too thick. I think the tokens are 2.9mm and the capsules I bought weren't thick enough.

Can anyone confirm if there is any coin capsule with the thickness that suits tokens from TMG version? Any link to the ebay store? Thanks!

Has anyone discovered a coin capsule that fits the TMG tokens? Definitely want to cap my tokens if possible. Thanks!
