Meeples and D20 coins and more!

Posted by Mark Morrison on 21st Dec 2018

Hello everyone,

The holidays are just about here. We hope you'll get a chance to spend quality time with family and friends, and maybe get in some seasonal gaming. That's our plan!

Thanks to each and every one of you for making 2018 a record year for us. We're all ready for a short break, so we'll be closed between Christmas and New Year. Our last mail orders will go out on Monday 24 December, and our next will be Thursday 4 January.

Here are some new items and other news to look forward to in the New Year.

Deluxe Metal Meeples

After our successful Kickstarter, our Deluxe Metal Meeples are now available on our website. These exquisite little game pieces are the same size as a regular meeple, but much heavier, and finished with different antique metal plating and gorgeous translucent enamel. There are six colours to choose from, and we have also made a nice collector pack if you'd just like to get one of each.

Epic D20 Coin pledge manager

Our Epic D20 Coin pledge manager is now live at Game On Tabletop. If you backed the campaign on Kickstarter, check your inbox for the link.


If you missed the campaign, good news: you can jump in now and enjoy local shipping in the US and the EU. If you go in for Two Packs or more, you will also get all the level up stretch goal bonuses unlocked in the campaign: exclusive limited Epic D20 Coins in Shining Gold, Adamantine and Regal Gold, and a sweet Velvet Bag of Holding with the D20 design.

Last minute gifts...

The moment has passed for us to get any last minute gifts to you, but we can help you with a last minute gift certificate. You can specify the value, and we'll email you the code to use at checkout.

... and a surprise gift for a website reviewer !

When Jackson started work on the site, he suggested we turn on the Reviews feature, and it's been a delight. We now have 100 cool and helpful reviews, submitted by your excellent selves. Thanks so much. It's the season for giving, so we thought we'd get out the Q-Workshop 1D100 and roll a winner:

Dave Mack, thanks for your review of the Deven Rue Compass Rose, you are our first ever random review winner. We've added US $50 credit to your account, enjoy your loot! To everyone who has ever taken the time to write a review, we really appreciate it.

2019 plans

We've got so many things to be getting on with. Here's a 2019 preview:

  • Our first release in January is our Numenera Shins coin set, made for our friends at Monte Cook Games for their hit roleplaying game. These are intricate science fantasy coins designed by Alex Ries (photo below).

Thanks for everything. You make all of this possible.
