I voted; it's virtually impossible for me to not vote purple. But it's a really hard choice between that or the black on yellow. Honestly, either of them would be really great. Just not the black/red

High above, foisting judgement
I'm only ordering one as a sample so I'm not voting; I'm happy to get one of whatever it is everyone else wants.

That said, I'll say again that I think the white on purple is the best fit for the overall feel of the Zen set.
Ditto, but I would down vote Orange on yellow

What about a hybrid yellow plaque with a purple tree?
I've asked @Johnny5 for a mock of that but I think the purple detailing will be just too soft, so the yellow/black will be the way to go. Also, the reality is that even though the voting is 50/50, @asam2006, @JustDave and I have committed to buying 100 of these so that'll tip this vote. Let's see what the yellow/purple version looks like but I'm guessing yellow/black.

#TeamPurple is sad, but totally OK with yellow/black as well :)

I thought about it a lot. It was a lot harder of a choice than I wanted and I think I'd have been happy either way, but in just looking at my cash chips, I think the yellow does a better job contrasting with the gray/pink, blue, and red/white than purple would. Purple would look to close the entire set being on that side of the color wheel.

Sums it up for me, too.

the longer this goes on the more of these I keep convincing myself I need... I'm now at 'well, if you are gonna get like 80, you might as well get 100 and fill out both racks...

I almost wonder if we should do a $100 plaque too but I figure the number of those people would purchase would be really low.

Update: talked through with @Johnny5 and looked at yellow w/ purple but it just didn't work. So, yellow w/ black for the $20.

If there's enough interest (100 plaques), we could think about the purple plaque as a $100. I'd be in for 20 of those to help make it work, but I have basically zero use for them as my games will never play that big.

Action: So, for the $20 plaques, please confirm the number you will order. Firm numbers, only, please. I'll email Matsui and officially get this going.

Action 2.0: I can do a lot of the prep work for this and even the ordering, probably, but I am moving at the end of June and won't be in a position to take delivery of these and re-ship them. I'll need someone to take over the baton and execute the later stages of this GB. Anyone?

I'm in for 40 of the $20 plaques.

If it came together, I'd be in for 10 of the $100 plaques in purple, but I also don't really have a use for them and am not going to cry about it.

Depending on volume I can probably handle the reship. I'm assuming we are talking about boxes showing up at my house from Matsui, not the pallets that showed up for the chips.

Same on the $100s. I doubt there will be enough interest, but maybe Matsui will do a "total number of plaques" thing, so if we're over 200... We'll see.

Yes, I think we're talking 200 +/- plaques, at most, plus the accompanying plaque racks. Can't imagine that will require a pallet.

I would get 20. A purple $100 would be awesome, but I'd only get like 5 ... It's not gonna happen with those low numbers. I'm going to go stare at pictures of Grimace to get my purple fix...

Confirming that I would like to order one. Uno. A single plaque. 1x $20. Firm number.

... if whoever is handling the logistics is willing to let me purchase just one, that is.

Thanks.

As long as you’re willing to pay shipping I think it’s fine.

Looks like this order hasn’t been placed yet? If that’s the case, will you be ordering plaque racks? I would like to order a bunch of the medium racks if possible.
