But i would really like to acquire 2 black top hats for use with this card. Anyone know of a source?

For now I am using 2 black cylinders (oil barrels from my Megawatts version of Power Grid)

this is the best I've found so far. At 24mm they might be a little big though.

thegamecrafter.com also sells single monopoly style top hat pieces, which I believe are metal but they're about the right size.

Just found these and ordered a set for myself. I'll probably have to trim off the little loop that's attached, but it's about the right size and the brass makes it look nice and fancy. I'm excited to pimp out my copy.

Those look flat to me. Are they 3d or 2d?

The image is definitely playing tricks with my eyes. I really hope they're 3d. Mine shipped already so I should know for sure pretty soon if people want to wait on official word.

Yeah, my eyes too, but I'm pretty sure they're flat. No shadows, some of them look like the wrong perspective. Please keep us updated. Thanks!

The description mentions they have hollow backs, so I'm pretty sure these are flat.

I think you meant 'CDO' since the letters are then in their correct sequence!

Definitely 2D! These are bracelet charms. But they will work fine anyway!

Yeah, I'm expecting like most charm bracelets it would be a 2D with depth kind of thing. Raised bumps, etc.

I'm convinced they're flat charms now. If you do find yourself with extras of the black hats, please let me know and I would gladly pay you for them.

I'm convinced they aren't. Look at the shadow they cast in the picture:



They appear three dimensional to me.

The prevailing presumption is that the brass ones are flat. Thanks Dave.

No problem, the quoted link was what fooled me

Indeed I would also concur that the brass ones are flat as a prepubescent girl =P

They have arrived.

They are almost exactly the same height as the wooden top hats in the game, but the brim is MUCH wider.

While the wooden bits have curved sides and upturned brims, and look like top hats, these are straight and flat and look more like pilgrim hats. Still, I think they are VERY usable...

They can be seen with the bits from the game here:

I ordered 10 hats total, and you need 1 for each promo card.

If anyone wants a set, let me know and I'll send 2 hats your way.

Very awesome of you David. Thank you!

As a side note- for those who weren't fortunate enough to get a pair of hats from David, I just heard back from Czech Games today. They will send x2 replacement top hat pieces for the price of €5.00 EUR. (About $7). If you're as picky as me then you'd probably want to re-paint them, since they only come in the colors already available in the game.

That's awesome news. I'd be very interested in that (even though I don't even own Last Will yet). Is that $7 shipped? And can you give us the email address you used?

Thanks.

Yes. $7 is the price of the hats including shipping.

I simply used the "Contact" section of the official Czech games website that is linked here on BGG. lenka@czechgames.com is the support e-mail that responded to the request, so I assume that's the e-mail you'd have the best luck with.

Took me almost six months, as they told me to hold tight until there was a reprint, and then wait still a little longer until after this year's Essen... but CGE just sent me mine! One extra hat for each color player in the game for €10 including delivery. Shout out to CGE customer service for actually contacting me proactively!

Yes Virginia, these is a Santa Claus. And that dude is Czech.
