Title: Metro Mage Games’ First Kickstarter is out now – a set of Magic: The Gathering compatible counters

Sub-head: Metro Mage, a community of game designers in NYC, has successfully funded their first Kickstarter: Magic: The Gathering Compatible Counters, a versatile, cheap, high quality set of counters designed to enhance the TCG gameplay experience.

Body: Metro Mage Games, an open community of New York City game designers and enthusiasts, has launched their first Kickstarter campaign this month with the hope of creating a unique accessory for the Magic: The Gathering (MTG) trading card game community.

After years of playing Standard, Limited, EDH MTG formats, Metro Mage Games saw an opportunity when they realized that playing Magic is always more enjoyable with high quality accessories. Their set of counters helps you build the immersive experience all Magic players love.

Thanks to months of iteration and polish they have successfully crowdfunded over $3,000 in the first 2 weeks of their campaign (300% of their target funding of $1,000) and will begin manufacturing the counters in the coming weeks, shipping them out to backers around July or August.

Here are some key features of the campaign if you are a Magic player and are looking to accessorize your collection:

  • Each set of counters comes with 45 pieces for only $10.

  • Each set contains 10 double sided +1/+1 counters, 10 double sided Poison counters, and 15 Ikoria Ability counters (you can find more details on how versatile these double-sided counters are on the campaign page, link below).

  • All shipping to the US is 100% free and included in your pledge. Global shipping will cost you an additional $7.

  • The campaign is making use of Kickstarter’s new in-house “Add-on” system giving backers access to accessories like a cloth carrying pouch or set of counters specific to just what backers need, such as sets of only +1/+1, Poison, or full sets of just one type of Ikoria counter.

  • The counters are durable and have undergone a rigorous “scratch test” (you can find a video of this test on the campaign page, link below).

  • US based game stores have the option to back the campaign for larger numbers of sets at a reduced price with free carrying pouches included.

  • All backer shipping materials are made using 100% recyclable/recycled materials, to reduce the campaign’s effect on the environment.
