Classic art tokens

It’s a good month for Kickstarter projects, or a bad month from my wallet’s perspective!

The classic art tokens takes a great new look at the token cards often used in Magic: the Gathering. Most creature cards do what they say on the card. You cast them, they enter the battlefield and they stay there.

Other cards create a token. This is almost-but-not-quite a card. Tokens are available in most Magic boosters these days, but in years past this was not the case. That means there are tokens that do not have cards for them. Also, players like to use unique tokens rather than the ones given to them. As long as it is clear what the token is, you do not have to use the official version if there is one. This gives players a lot of freedom.

Enter tokens where the art is taken from classical art sources.

Here’s a selection:


If you enjoy art, and play Magic: the Gathering, this will probably be of interest to you. There are also playmats available.

There are different packs aimed at different Magic formats, or you can simply pledge to get one of each token produced.

    Thanks for the heads up. It’s difficult to stay up with all the Kickstarters.
