Just curious. I saw them in the add-ons, but noticed they don't seem to be part of the token-sets. As such, it just feels weird that these would get produced, only to be add-ons, and an item given to $500 backers.

Right now, the "value" seems to sit somewhere between $150 + add-ons, or $300 (for exclusive promos), so i'm wondering if the Kama coins get thrown in at $300 or anything?

Sway me people! Sway me!

The value for the $500 level no good?

I was thinking I might bail down to the $300 level...
Convince me?

No, they aren't included in any level. $500 don't get them without paying extra.

The 500$ is worth it to get all the stuff that you normally won't get without winning tournaments in France plus you get the XXL figure which you could turn around and sell if you want PLUS you get everything released for the game at once rather then waiting for them all to be released over time.

Getting the expansions early, but at full retail price, is not that interesting to me. After a couple of month it'll actually hold no value at all.

The XXL figure would quickly find it's way to the back of my closet, I fear.

Promo figures, not reached by the stretch goals, are interesting though. I am just not sure they are worth the extra price, to me...

Still undecided...

Are the coins actually metal or are they resin coins with a metallic paint or finish?

They say actual metal.

I'm not interested in stuff "holding value". I never buy stuff with an eye to making the money back; I think that's a pretty ridiculous thing to do.

If you don't want the XXL figure, sell it. Most people are pre-selling theirs already for about $100.

For most gamers, MSRP is a no-no, as such the $500 tier is just full of things at padded prices. At $300, however, you essentially secure every promo figure (the ones with REAL Ebay value are the figures, not the extra items), and most of the luxury tokens, etc... to add to table aesthetic.

$150, is actually the BEST pure value. At that price, if you add all the add-on tokens... you actually come to $275, and all you're missing are two promo figures. True, said promo figures seem to go for about $50 right now, and thus why i'm either at $150+ or at $300-base.

$500 MIGHT have value for some European buyers once shipping is said and done, versus retail, but as is... lets not be fanboys/girls....

The $300 level seems to be the best value for the money.

I had them in hand and they are.
Something like 2mm thick and the basic K symbo embossed.

They also felt heavier then the gallon of glory metallic material, and more shiny. But it was pre production prototypes, so the final ones may differ.

Note: the ones i had in hand didn't looked like this one at all : https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/projects/441800/posts/451314/im...

Normally I would actually (personally) just give a slight edge to the $150+ add ons, method, but if one sells JUST the Nox included at $300, and for HALF of what they currently go for in Europe, then you can actually come out $50 USD ahead.

Agreed. You get all the promo figures and terrain/counters but you miss out on the XL figure and the five early booster packs. The five packs retail for $140 total, but I assume you can get them for about $100 total if they are sold through online retailers.

So you are paying ~$100 for the XL figure and/or feel the boosters are worth getting early and/or are worried the game won't be reliably sold online.

Can anyone tell me what the Kama coins actually do in the game? I can't seem to find anything about how they effect game play.

The Kama coins are placed on the board (I think the spaces are marked on the board) They can then be collected and used to buy a Gallon of Glory or to buy demonic rewards.
They are also rewarded for not assigning the dice to your characters at the start of your turn.

They say actual metal.
They are actually "metallized" coins, which means they're not solid metal. They're merely non-metallic objects coated in metallic substance.
