I really didn't like the coins included with the game. They seemed so poorly made when compared to the rest of the components, so I decided to make some new ones.

Sorry for the crappy picture. I only had my iPod at the time.



They were engraved and cut out of birch on a laser cutter and are double sided just like the coins in the game.

What does everyone think?

I think you should be offering them for sale.

I had the same thought on opening the box: how can I get better koku? I searched around ebay and found mahjong coins that would work. Then I remembered my Mom has these coins in her mahjong set so I asked if she wasn't using them but she was so I'm keeping my eyes open for a mahjong set at a yard sale.

Very cool. I have an uncle that moved to Japan. I think I'm gonna try to hit him up for some 1 yen coins. Thought they'd make a cool addition to the game.

I do like the relaxed play of a Tokaido game. But the one thing that really annoyed me was ruining 3 of the coins while trying to separate them from their sprues. Most of the games I own have cut outs and I (and my girlfriend) have become adept at pressing, but nothing I could do seemed to save these coins!

I hate it when that happens. It must have been a blunt die or poorly pressed. The tokens were falling out of the board on my copy, I was afraid I'd lose some before getting a chance to play it.

I'm not selling them, mostly because it is currently too difficult to get the two sides to match up. I've tried three different methods and the best system I came up with has a good to bad ratio of about 1:4, so way too much waste.

However, back in May I was undeterred. A very good friend, who runs what used to be my FLGS, Board Game Warriors, asked me to make him some. So if you really want a set you can go to www.boardgamewarriors.com/products/wooden-chinese-game-token...

So, I found these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Japanese-five-yen-bank-roll-s-of-50-...

The five yen coins are pretty neat, but I don't really need 250 of them, anyone find a better option? I'd also rather have the square hole.

Amazon has these lucky coins, but they look like thing junk:

I would absolutely buy a set if they were on offer. These are the kind of high-quality components I'd love to see in a Collector's Edition of Tokaido.
