Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition - Acrylic Tokens

last updated February 11th, 2024 — created July 9th, 2018

Before the 3D printed insert, we designed these acrylic tokens and had them laser cut out of sheets of semi-transparent acrylic. They are the same shape as the faction-specific tokens, and have been laser etched with a ship decal on one side, to ensure that you can still tell when they are designated as a player's fleet tokens. They are thicker than standard race tokens for easier handling and just look really cool! These are a much more expensive option (~$20 USD per color) than our 3D printed color tokens, but are pretty awesome if you want that extra flare.


This vector file is suitable for ordering laser cut tokens.

We prefer the plain control tokens, but several fans requested an update with etched control tokens. If you're having a company make your laser cut tokens, this would probably more than double the cost, but may be worth the additional expense if you really don't like the plain control tokens.

Color-Specific Tokens

We've had some questions as to why we prefer the color-specific command/control tokens over the provided faction-specific tokens. The reason is because your faction's primary representation on the board is your miniatures, which are color-specific. Adding faction-specific tokens created confusion during several of our games, particularly for factions that are similarly colored or those whose symbols are similar.

In the example, the first picture shows use of the faction-specific tokens. It's difficult to tell which player controls each planet and which players have activated systems (even if you have memorized all of the faction symbols) because several of them are so similar. Also worth noting, these pictures were taken much closer to the game board than any player is likely to be sitting. With our color-specific tokens, it's much easier to tell what's going on at a glance. Having said that, we understand that ordering these laser cut tokens is very expensive. So we're offering 3D Printed Tokens for sale and we've also included models in our insert STLs so you can 3d print your own color-specific tokens.


Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition
NEW3D Printed Hyperlane Tiles
We printed these hyperlane tiles to make it easier to setup the Hyperlanes variant if you're playing with 3, 5, or 7 players.
Galaxy Mats
Many players wanted a nice game mat to place on their hard-top table, so we made this galaxy mat and have updated it several times to fit requests.
3D Printed Insert
This insert is designed for optimal setup speed. It has a few setup trays to pull components from, and then all play trays go straight from box to table.
3D Printed Tokens
After trying to find a way to offer color-specific tokens that aren't as crazy expensive as laser cut acrylic, we decided to make our own.

NEWAdrenaline
We were unaware of the new expansion's team bases until after our minis were re-based, but made these 3D Printed counterparts that work with our custom bases.
NEWTabletop Projects
We originally created this to replace a marker in Magic Maze, but it's so great for passing around that we now use it as a generic first person or turn marker.

Tabletop Projects
This is what we came up with for the center of a Venn diagram between "Wants a big fancy gaming table" and "Doesn't want to spend thousands on it".
World of WarCraft: The Board Game
We created a few fix-it stickers per the Errata listed in the FAQ.
StarCraft: The Board Game
We designed skirmish boards with magnetic legs allowing them to be placed over the game area to resolve table space limits.
Codex: Card-Time Strategy
Our main design goals were to have them fit in the box without rolling/folding, have a low-profile patrol zone, and have a large play area.
WarCraft: The Board Game
We wanted to have a token to track the first player, so we tossed this one together.
Runebound Second Edition
We made an expansions icon reference sheet so we could easily see which content belongs to what expansion.
HOPE
We had some questions and the only FAQ we could find was in French, so we compiled all the answers we could find into one printable booklet.
Legacy of Dragonholt
We don't track the entries that we go through, so we decided it'd be a lot easier to have all our story tracking on one sheet.
Alchemists
We adjusted the sheets, bought some minimal-border picture frames and wet-erase markers, put it all together, and now have reusable boards.
Earth Reborn
We drafted a 3D model of the vacuum insert tray based on the measurements file from Ludically.
Chaostle
This is our approach to character skill reference labels. They are designed to be adhered to the backs of your character cards.
Alchemists
We didn't like playing on the shallow shelf that folds out of the cauldron pieces, so we made deeper shelves out of a bit of foam core.
