There’s just something cool about throwing down a handful of coins on the game table when the party unlocks a treasure chest, picks up a pint at the inn, or loots a fallen a foe. Brought to you by King of the Castle Games Company, these nifty coins come in four greedy denominations: gold, silver, copper and platinum. The weight ratio is decent and there’s plenty of variety including 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, and 1,000 individual coin values.
I first encountered these Australians at GenCon 2006 when they debuted their starter set. Since then, they’ve added more handy coin varieties (which makes it much easier to divvy up your new-found money).
I’m not sure how useful the platinum pieces really are and the difference between copper and gold should be more pronounced. Still, that’s being rather nitpicky. I’m a big fan and recommend you pick up a pack or two (or three, or four…).
