TOPIC: 2008 Tokens Already Out?

Re: 2008 Tokens Already Out? 13 years 1 month ago #13

<br />I like the idea of being able to look at a bunch of chip tokens upside-down without having a clue what year they are.<br />The front should be the part which changes.<br /><br />BTW, Doug - yes, the "thorns" on the side are for 2007. There may be new marks for 2008.<br />

<br /><br />Yes, the yearless tokens (Monetary Reserves and Feedback Loops) don't have the 'thorns'.  The thorns on the sides were this year's mark.  Next year should be different.<br /><br />

What about the color of the ring that encircles the token.  Except for the Feedback loop, that circle is black on all tokens.  Could he change that color to something else (like a dark blue).  It would be a minor change but would be fairly easy to recognize.

slight color changes could be bad in low light or for the color blind collectors...<br /><br />I like a subtle symbol or change around the ring of the tokens...we will have to wait and see...

<br />Changing the sticker makes the most sense as these are going to change anyway with the new token mix.  I don't see any marking though that could be used to indicate the year.... interesting.  Maybe the triangles on the sides?<br />

<br /><br />Yeah; the "thorns" on the outter ring of the token was supposed to be this year's designator as I recall.

Or maybe a "watermark" behind the text/image?  I don't know.  This is a tricky one.

how about you have to buy a special UV light that only TD can provide (in the shape of a token) and you have to look at the tokens under UV or black light to find the hidden shape?  Holograms anyone?<br /><br />Yeah, Just kidding.<br /><br />

2008 tokens will be foil wrapped chocolates - you will actually have to consume your consumables.  Wands with charges will be segmented so pieces can be broken off for each use.<br /><br />Just don't keep them in your pockets!

Holograms would be AWESOME, and most likely cost prohibitive.  Oh well...<br />
