I do love my Scythe metal coins, but I do no want to move them back and forth everytime I play Viticulture. And paying up to 30€ for a nice-to-have (the current price of the metal coins for V.) is a lot.

Did anybody order 3rd party coins anywhere? Or can you advice any real money coins available on Ebay? Or...?

Thanks for solving my (very much) 1st world "problem" :-)

Re: Metal Coins
I didn't do any price comparisons to know if it's worthwhile, but maybe you could buy a bunch of old pre-Euro Italian Lira? (Careful if the ebay auction says "100 Lira coins." It's probably for a single 100-Lira coin, not for 100 coins.)

Re: Metal Coins
Thanks. But old Lira will not do it. They actually had 100 (and maybe even higher) coins. The Maximum in Germany was 5 DM

Re: Metal Coins
I bought some "GameCoins" on Amazon a while ago. These have "1s" and "5s". Its a package of 60 coins and a nice bag for 24 €. There are all kinds of variations, not really cheap, but usable for almost every game.

I also own the viticulture coins and the scythe coins, because these are extraordinary... but the generic coins will do it definitely.

Just search for LudoXL on Amazon.

Re: Metal Coins
OK, I bought real Italian Lira (from the pre-€ time) on Ebay. They cost less than 10€ including transport.

So, people will just remove all the additional zeros in their head and then we have nice "real" money to play with.

That is the best decision, I think
