We kept this in mind when we did our bit churn recently. We have boxes of rares, good token, single pull TEs, healing, etc to hand out. We gave a new group at pax S some gear last year, as we had a lot of treasure pulls....it's honestly one of my favorite things :)

Challenge gladly accepted :)

Between starter packs and treasure I normally have a bunch of extra rares and uncommons. Whenever i run with newbies I'm always looking to give them stuff to help their build. Giving away a couple dozen tokens isn't going to make more then a tiny dent in what I transmute, but if I can help even one player enjoy their run a little more, then mission accomplished.

I've got small bags of ~14 tokens geared toward each class, usually just 1 rare and 1 UC that are class-specific, and useful commons for random slots that I could give out to newbies
I came here to sing and collect tokens, and I'm alllll out of money.

This is one of my favorite things about being a coach--especially at the new cons where there are so many new players.
I take a bunch of my extra tokens to pass out to the new players that look like they are totally into the game.
I explain to them that "I'm like the old guy in the cave that says "Take this! It's dangerous to go alone.""

The coaching staff has some common weapons to hand out to players that need them, but I really want to be able to hand out a Red Wand to that kid that *really* wants to play Wizard.
Or hand a two handed Beserker Axe to that Barbarian player that is really excited about hitting stuff.

I second that about coaching.
I stock my pouch with the common weapons. Its cool to see barbarians light up when you give them a two-handed weapon and tell them their damage bonus.
I actually thought about doing this with helmets. I got a freakish number of helmets this year, and thought maybe fill a belt pouch with then, and give them to new players. Not as nice as rares, but I don't have the ability to do that, yet.

Will do. I've brought a big bag of useful rare tokens for the last few years but between runs and coaching, have a hard time actually distributing them. Will make more of an effort. Thanks for the call to action!

I would be willing to donate tokens to this but I usually don’t play at gen con because I’m too busy with other con stuff. So when the time comes if this thread gets reactivated I can get in touch with someone who is handing out tokens l

This doesn't have to be limited to Gencon. Do this for a few players at whatever convention you attend.

Of course sending tokens to another to give out at GenCon is also a good option. Do what works best for you

I’m making the assumption that gen con is the best place for new players
