View Full Discussion So i think i will have to agree with the rest of the comments on the pricing. Even at the commit price of $35, these are priced about $5 above what OMA is selling them for. The only reasoning I can think of, is that they are still selling them at a "pre-order" price and the Massdrop reflects the final pricing once its out of pre-order.
But on the subject of the tokens: I backed the tokens on Kickstarter and have already received them. They have a really nice paper quality and the printing is spot on to the sample images shown in the drop. They have no problems sleeving or even double sleeving. The real problem with them is the quantity. If you end up running a deck that produces more than one of these tokens at a time, you end up wishing you had a lot more of them. Toliarian Community College's The Professor reviewed these back when the Kickstarter was still happening if you want to check that out.
One more thing: They offer playmats on their backer kit store of a limited number of classic works. But remember that the vast majority of these art works featured are public domain, and a quick trip to Wikipedia to grab a high resolution image, a quick resizing in Photoshop/gimp, and going to inkedgaming.com can get you a custom playmat with these classic works for about the same price. I had made a great wave playmat about 6 months before the Kickstarter started.
With regards to the tokens, I have RK Post's tokens and often feel the same way (there's 1-2 of each in his sets), but it doesn't bother me TOO much because dice exist and you can separate them into tapped/untapped...they definitely look cool enough to merit only having one or two.
I think if this doesn't get resolved before the drop ends - which it probably won't - I'll probably just order it directly from them. It's a shame, as I said before, I really like Massdrop but they've been doing stuff like this too often recently :\
RK Post sells singles, but at a higher price than the sets. I ordered that way because I wanted a cool mix of tokens without getting the joke ones (kinda cheesy for my taste).
I also backed the kickstarter and love these. Great communication and service overall. I'm sad that he doesn't sell singles.
