Hello,

Just wondering if anyone knows where I can source plastic racing car tokens in volume for my board game - Total Control Racing. I am seeking to start a kick-starter campaign but the production costs are too high at the moment. The most expensive components are the custom racing car tokens and the hole-punched dashboards. I am having to look at sourcing some cheaper plastic racing car tokens but I can't find anything that suits.

The game is on BGG is anyone is interested to have a look.

Thanks.

You could probably go to The Game Crafter to build a prototype, but I'll be honest, your game looks a lot like Formula D. Is there something different about this game that sets it apart from a game like Formula D?

Thanks for taking a look at the game RadioActiveMouse.

Yes I admit it looks like FD but it does play differently. There is far less luck with no dice rolling to determine speed. There are other differences that make it a different game.

I have contacted Game Crafter, they don't do the tokens I am looking for.

I would focus on pushing the differences of your game to FD than looking for nice car miniatures.

Ultimately, the consumer is going to ask themselves, "Why should I play your game as opposed to FD?" The better you show how your game is unique, the more people will gravitate toward your game.

In my opinion, I'd rather play a racing game with cardboard chits and unique gameplay than a game that has fancy pieces, but plays like another game I already have.

But if you're looking for specific models, I'd try looking for an all-in-one 3d printing service. They make the 3d model then it gets mass molded. I know it may be on the expensive side, but if that's what you're looking for, might as well go all out.
