Geeking Out Giveaway – Buy the Same (Legion) Token
As you may know, I do like a handy acrylic token. Anyone who’s ever played a Fantasy Flight game (or other, but they’re infamous) will know that you can suffer a bit from token fatigue.
Equally, there’s now a huge market for these things, and with their latest game, Star Wars: Legion storming the market (even The Guardian had an article – frankly, I’m late to the party), you can’t help but want it to look as snazzy as possible.
Luckily, the fine folk at Buy the Same Token (stores.ebay.co.uk/buy-the-same-token) have again stepped up to the challenge with their SW Legion compatible acrylic token set.
This set consists of the following 50 (yes, 50) acrylic tokens:
6 x Dodge tokens (Dark green translucent acrylic, painted white)
6 x Aim tokens (Dark green translucent acrylic, painted white)
6 x Standby tokens (Dark green translucent acrylic, painted white)
8 x Single damage tokens (Solid white acrylic, painted red)
4 x ‘3 damage’ tokens (Solid white acrylic, painted red)
4 x Panic tokens (Solid black acrylic, painted yellow)
3 x Vehicle damage tokens (Solid black, painted orange)
10 x Suppression tokens (Solid black, painted yellow)
2 x Ion tokens (Blue translucent acrylic, painted white)
1 x Commander token (Solid black acrylic, painted gold)
All for the very reasonable price of £25. Remember, these come painted, and are high density acrylic – they feel really solid in your hand, and aren’t going to get knocked or otherwise displaced easily – and are only 50p each. The colour coding is very clear and, to be frank, I find them easier to read than their printed counterparts also.
As if that’s not enough, you can also get the very lovely, most starwarsy thing ever in the form of their holographic objective marker set.
6 x Objective Markers with a choice of 4 acrylic colours ; Light blue, Medium blue, Fluorescent red, Dark transluscent red. The bases are supplied assembled with the holographic insert loose (solid black acrylic, painted white).
Honestly I’m utterly smitten with these. On sturdy black acrylic bases, they really evoke the SW aesthetic, the sense of scale and atmosphere from the likes of Battlefront and the classic rogue squadron games. They’d work equally well as street signs or lights for the likes of Infinity, Starfall or othe sci-fi/near future gaming. For £12, they’re a steal – but, if you’re not sure, how about winning a set of them right here, right now?!
Yup, this month’s giveaway is set of these eversolovely objectives. Details below, and we’ll do the draw in a couple of weeks along with a review of the Legion game itself!
