DigThatBox.com Announces 2012 Arcade Token Give-Away

Three Years, Three New Tokens!


Web Site Giving Away Limited Edition Arcade Tokens at E3 Expo 2012, SDCC 12,  CGE 2012 and Online.

HOLLYWOOD, CA June 1st, 2012 – Three years, three tokens! The mad men at digthatbox.com proudly announce the 2012 Arcade Token Give-Away. Representatives of the site will be giving away 3,000 beautifully crafted, custom made arcade tokens at three major public events. And in honor of the 3rd anniversary of the Arcade Token Give-away the site has created three brand new tokens.

Last year DigThatBox.com distributed 3,000 custom made arcade tokens at several major events. Tokens were also made available online. Tokens were mailed to 46 of the 50 United States and to 18 different countries world-wide. After the tremendous success of the 2011 give-away the site has decided to do it again, only this time 3 different tokens have been produced for three major fan events. The first new token is a beautiful Copper Token made exclusively for the 2012 E3 Expo. The second token is a luxurious Red Brass Token, created exclusively for the 2012 Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA. The third token is a lucky Emerald Green Aluminum Token, crafted exclusively for the 2012 Classic Gaming Expo. As a special bonus, owners of the Emerald Token will receive special access to a secret club on DigThatBox.com.

These beautiful and unique collectible coins were created by artist Christian George-Morehouse, based on the vision of the site founder E. Thomas. These coins are produced in co-operation with Osborne Coinage®. These freshly minted coins are made right here in the USA. 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 tokens to its loyal online readers. Additional details for the online give-away will be released during the 2012 E3 Expo™, which runs from June 5th to June 7th. Tokens will also be available at the Los Angeles Anime Expo, Comic-Con International 2012, and the Classic Gaming Expo 2012. The E3 Expo is the only place to get all 3 tokens at the same time. The only other way to get all three tokens is through the mail order give-away, or by attending all three events. Stay tuned for additional details.
