Is there any to get hold of $2 cardboard coins for Albion? Just bothers me very slightly that they're the only faction without their own style of currency.

I don't want to pay for Albion metal coins, since they will be mismatched with all the cardboard coins of the other factions (which I am happy with.)

Curious about why these aren't in the box to start with, especially since Togawa has its own? Of course, they aren't necessary or anything, but just wondering...

I'm sorry, but $2 cardboard coins don't exist. We included $50 cardboard coins in Invaders out of concerns for 7-player games running out of coins, though to my knowledge that hasn't ever happened.

They are indeed inspired by old Crimean coins.

Thanks, Jamey. Just thought I'd check in case I'd missed it somewhere in browsing. Just got invaders today - very much look forward to playing!

I feel bad for Albion not getting their own coins.

So the new two factions don't have their own coins? They have to use the coins of the other factions? In that case, wich ones with Japanese and wich with the Albion faction? Thanks in advance for your reply.

I think you may be confused. Every faction uses the coins of every other faction.

That would be pretty thematic though - every faction with it's own currency!
