Is he willing to trade?

Lolz, my husband saw the dracolich and asked the same thing. We don’t need 3 screens, but damn it’s a beauty.

Which Dracolich?  The Macassar?

Yeah - that's definitely a beauty.

Yeah.  That "tiger's eye" effect is glorious.

So, the page for the Token Shield is up. We haven't shared the link to anyone yet but wanted to get your opinion on it. We are shooting more video today and tomorrow, so ignore the short vid we have up now. Does it clearly show capacity? Is it confusing in any way? Etc. Etc.

Have you considered putting a couple of arm straps on the back to enhance the illusion of it being a shield?

That’s not a bad idea @Barb Bliss

You laugh @Zoe, but there is room on the sides to tack on some leather straps.  If the loops aren't too big, they shouldn't interfere with the lazy action.  I hope you guys at least consider it as an add-on.

p.s. Maybe Jeremiah could put some on mine before it ships out???

Well, what I know is that my team is still playing.  😁

p.s. You wouldn't believe some of the sour grape action coming from walverine nation.  Pretty sad yet hilarious at the same time.

p.p.s @Konas and I aren't the only ones.

Only thing I might suggest would be to change the text on the well capacity -- either describe the capacity of 'large' and 'small' wells or separate it out into two sections.

I know you have that on the pictures - but the difference between the 6-well and the 8-well is pretty significant.. and I think worth calling out in the text as well as the image.

Do you mean short straps on the visible sides of the shield, not on the bottom? Its interesting. We would have to be careful not to drill through the side walls.

Awesome advice. Consider it done.

I was thinking on the back side, nearer to the edges of the shield.  Far enough out that it wouldn't interfere with the spinning action.  Kind of like this:

No no no.. you need the straps into the base of the lazy susan itself - so that you can wear it on your arm.. and spin the disk to send the meeples flying out across the room!

Gotcha. I really don't think there is room to put them there. If we did, they would have to be very close to the back and wouldn't leave any room to get an arm or hand in.

I was thinking style versus function.  Add to the illusion of it being a shield.

Maybe consider an XL shield size...

Which then just begs for the double decker "Gourdian" modification :)

XL on the bottom, and regular size above it on a spit.

Weird that Oregon is rooting for Virginia. Not that any local I know has a stake in this one.

Some like UVA is because of the coach.  He's royalty in Wisconsin.  Maybe they have ties to Oregon too.
