DigThatBox.com Giving Away 5000 Arcade Tokens at E3 EXPO™ 2010

Custom Arcade Token Give Away for Show Visitors and Online Readers


HOLLYWOOD, CA - June 8th, 2010 – Token Tuesday is here! DigThatBox.com announces a massive arcade token give-away in honor of the 2010 E3 Expo™. To celebrate this special event members of DigThatBox.com will be handing out over 5000 Custom Arcade Tokens created especially for the show. The tokens will be distributed over the course of the 3 day expo. Representatives of the site will be walking the show floor wearing change aprons and pins that read “ask me for a token.”

This beautiful and unique collector’s item was created by artist Christian George-Morehouse in co-operation with Osborne Coinage®. These freshly minted brass tokens shine with a golden luster. The coin layout is an homage to the famous Chuck E. Cheese® token. The center of the design features the classic Space Invader logo, known worldwide as the universal symbol of video games.  The text around the logo reads “Dig That Box.com Can You Dig It?”

DigThatBox.com will also be giving away another 500 tokens to its loyal online readers. Additional details for the online give-away will be released during the 2010 E3 Expo™, which runs from June 15th to June 17th.

E. Thomas, Founder and Senior Editor of DigThatBox.com will be celebrating his tenth year at the E3 Expo™. He is quoted as saying: “Over the years the E3 Expo™ has provided me with tremendous opportunity. It truly has been a blessing upon my life and my career. And as a fan I have witnessed many historic events at the expo. It’s always an amazing celebration and it’s very special to me. I just wanted to do something that helped make this show special for everyone.”

Not going to the E3 Expo™? Don’t worry, the web site plans to distribute another 1000 tokens at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con® and the 2010 Classic Gaming Expo™. Be sure to check the site for additional details.
