Auction: Design A Punchout

If you win this auction, you’ll get to work with JT to design a custom laser cut shape that will be available to everybody that uses The Game Crafter. The punchout will have to be something that reasonably more than one person would want, and it will need to fit on the small (3.25" x 5.25"), medium (4.5" x 8"), or large (10.5" x 8.25") punchout slugs we have. The auction ends on May 31st.

PS: If you win this auction, you will be let in on a big super secret, and that secret may influence what you design.
