Hey all,

Does anyone know what the treasure tokens are made of?

I'm hoping they are something like mini poker chips.

It'd be pretty disappointing with all the other great components of the game if you then had these cardboard chits thrown in for VP's.

Thanks for any insight.

The prototype chits are cardboard. I believe the game is going to use cardboard, because plastic/poker chip style slid too much on the plastic.

That's a shame.

The CG renders make them look like poker chips matching the terrain.

As for the chips sliding, the CG renders also make it look as though there's an indent for the chips to sit in, ergo, no-where to slide.

I'd make the same request for the Poison and bee sting tokens. I feel the change from cardboard to plastic would really elevate this game.

Does anyone remember the plastic money tokens they put in the Deluxe version of Power Grid. They where terrible. Plastic isn't always better.

This whole game is a tone of plastic/resin.

I'm sure if the tokens were also, they wouldn't be terrible... Unless you think all other components of the game will also be terrible?

With how much this game is costing me I had hoped for actual silver and gold.
