A recent "obsession" of mine lately is upgrading any of my games with cardboard coin tokens to metal coins. I missed the Near & Far KS campaign, and really, really wanted the metal coins. But alas, there seems to be no way to get them. So I compromised!

Artana makes several varieties of coins (previously KS'ed as the "Best Damn Gaming Coins" or some such.) These coins are now available from The Broken Token in sets or individually.

I chose the "Mythological Creatures" style, since the designs lend themselves well to the fictional universe of N&F. The game comes with 24 "1's" and 6 "5's". So I purchased two sets of the Medium coins (24 coins total), and 1 set of the Large coins (9 coins). The total cost is listed as $18. (I got mine for slightly less during a recent sale.)

The Medium are the 25mm coins with the phoenix on them. The Large are 30mm and have the unicorn/tree design. Played last night with them, and they are so much better than cardboard tokens!

These look great! I have the N&F KS coins, but I've been looking for a source for more coins to use in other games.

Here's a link, btw.

There is a new kickstarter for the Near and Far expansion: Amber Mines. They have a bunch of different reward tiers depending on what you are interested in. You can purchase just the metal coins for $15 plus shipping ($3 for US and varies for other countries).

Yeah, a great time to pick up the new Near and Far expansion, the coins if you missed them, and also the KS deluxe items for Above and Below if you have that game also.

I've already backed for the coins and the expansion! I guess I'll have the Artana Mythological Creatures coins to use elsewhere. I was thinking about replacing the cardboard coins in Red Dragon Inn...

You've got another chance to get the Kickstarter coins from the first N&R expansion!
