JOIN THE ARCADE TOKEN COLLECTOR'S CLUB - Last year we started a new collector's club for people who have been following our giveaway for many years. All you had to do was send us a photo showing that you had at least 5 of our previous arcade tokens. This would ensure that you will be the first to receive our new coins, along with any convention exclusive coins that are offered later in the year. If you joined the club last year, do not worry, you're covered until the end of 2016. However, if you want to be included in the club for 2017 you must, once again, send us a picture showing us that you have at least five of our previous coins.
