Hello!

Josh made way too many completion token designs, and now we have to decide with ones will actually be included in the game. Each of these is intended to be white or black ink screen-printed onto a colored piece of wood, roughly 1.5-2cm in size. Pick as many as you like, and the ones with the most votes will be chosen.

I do worry that we're voting on which ones we like best, not whether, as a set, they work well together.

What are the completion tokens used for in the game?

The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion

They are just graphics. I don't think it matters which 6 'we' choose.

Maybe that's one way to think about it when picking which you like the most.

Personally, I like the idea of having a variety of looks to represent the diversity in Gloomhaven. Not really race-specific, since there won't be enough for all of the races, but designs that give you a feel of the races collaborating on the the biggest, most important buildings in Gloomhaven. That would be a great way to bring more theme and world-building to this game and the Gloomhaven setting overall.

Indeed! I'd like to see some diversity in design. Not too many gears or houses...

I have tried to choose from a various races/cultures point of view ... the collaboration Sean M. mentioned is a really good point.
In the end it depends a bit on how they will be printed ... on-screen I really like colour on white better than black on colour.

I agree. I think it would look better as a set to keep a uniform design theme by using the white screen printing on colored pieces rather than mix in one or two pieces with black screen printing.

Fair enough. I might take some liberties with the results, if, say, there are too many gear buildings or not enough diversity in color.

They all look nice, but I'm gravitating towards anything non-triangle shaped.

I gravitated towards the ones that had more distinctive overall shapes. Some of them when you look at the outside shape (ignoring whatever is happening on the insides) look kind of same-y. 1/9/12 all felt like they fit within a family well together, yet distinctive enough from each other you could tell them apart.

Also, once those custom houses are designed, that may impact what you think the city's prestige buildings look like. My first priority is that it look "Gloomhaven-y" ... and I trust your judgement.

Yeah, for me I wouldn't want more than one of 4,10,12 even though individually I like all three since I would like only a single cogwheel, and similarly I would like only one of 1,2,3,8. Also 9 and 13 are a bit similar. 7 is unique.

Imo the most beautiful result will be that the designer makes 6 designs in the same style as the winner of the poll. Otherwise it's going to be a lish mash of styles. Unless isaac had athis in mind to make 6 different styles. To underline the differences. I prefer one style. More streamlined for a euro game

Clearly I have common tastes. 5 of my 6 picks were in the 6 highest vote tallies.

I agree.

I guess I'm subjective, but I see stylistic groupings:

1, 2 and 3 are similar
4, 10 and 12
5, 8 and 11
6, 9 and 13

I can't put 7 anywhere, its kind of unique.

I'm hoping that each of these groups is represented with 1, and no more than 2, in terms of diversity. At the moment 1, 2 and 3 would all make it, while the 5/8/11 group misses out entirely.

This could be achieved by taking 6 of the current top 8.

What is with all the votes for 1,2 & 3? They are all almost the same nothing different besides the color. I for one am hoping for all different styles and colors so they stand out.

Wow, Nice, All of mine were top choices except for one which I liked and almost picked that one anyway, I will say they should've done all the pieces in black, my first time I looked I was making some choices on just color not design. Glad I took a breather and just decided to pick on design.
