Some guidance in chip selection for an overwhelmed newbie

I am trying to choose decent chips to play with some friends, nothing really professional, just some casual games, but we would like high quality.
I have been doing some research and looks like people tend to prefer 10 grams clay chips. They are used in casinos and have the best feeling.
Now, here is the thing, we, as casual players, put so much value in the esthetics of the chip, we would like them to look good, and have found some that we really like, like the 2009 EPT or the Montecarlo Royale Crown. Problem being, first ones are ceramic, not clay, and the latter having a weight of 14 grams. Or is it actually a problem? I would like to find out if its just a common prefference but there is no big difference or it actually matters.
In the 10g clay spectrum, many casinos use the Paulson clay but imho they are horrible, are there any good looking alternatives?
We would really appreciate your opinion and comments in this matter or, if you do not want to spend the time in writing a whole post, answering in the pool if you would consider, in your experience, that any of those chips spoken about earlier are a bad purchase (0.8€ per chip the EPT ones and 0.3€ the Montecarlo´s) considering that we plan on start going to casinos once we reach the right blind levels).
As always, thank you really much =)

EDIT: Apparently many people found my post quite deffensive and that was never my intention, I am changing my way to say some things so there is no room for misunderstanding =)

Iron Clays: Light sanding worked wonders wrt slipperiness


Lightly sanding the Iron Clays yields excellent results. (That fine line in the inlay was preexistent.)

Iron Clays: Unboxing and Discussion

The Iron Clays are a luxury "game counter" (poker chip) first released by Roxley Games as part of their 2017 Brass Birmingham campaign. Due to demand from fans they went on to create a follow up Kickstarter in June of 2019 for just the Iron Clays. The campaign was delayed for a few months by COVID-19 but I received my shipment of Iron Clays just yesterday and wanted to let you all see them for yourself.
My pledge was for the standard distribution of 400 chips in a printed box; the kickstarter price was listed as 182 CAD and, including shipping, I paid a total of 168 USD at the time.
It was a bit of a rough start with a large hole and some dents in the shipping container. Fortunately the contents themselves were entirely undamaged.
The chips are contained in a nice box with foil lettering and magnets that keep the lid closed. Within the box are four plastic containers that hold the chips securely. The chips are beautifully produced and come in 8 denominations currently (1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 2000). I was opposed to the inclusion of 10s and 50s during the campaign, I still am, but in the end I think the 50 may be my favorite looking chip. They weigh an average of 9.4g (compared to 9.2g for a stack of 20 casino chips I own and 8.1g for the chips in Splendor); individual variation in weight from chip to chip is low with all measuring between 9-10g (using a low precision kitchen scale).
The chips themselves appear to be of excellent quality; out of 400 chips I have found only one misprint. It should be noted that all of the chips have small lightly colored spots on the edges where they were presumably attached to the mold and so I don't consider this to be a misprint. This doesn't particularly bother me and the edges are otherwise very smooth with a barely palpable seam. I have dropped a number of chips, as well as their plastic containers, from table height during my testing over the past day and have not managed to break or damage anything.
Having shown you the chips I did want to discuss some of the concerns raised by various backers and poker chip aficionados since the campaign was announced. A major concern voiced by poker chip collectors has been the chips "slipperiness". The concern being that the chips actual usability is impaired by this because of poor stackability. I have compared the Iron Clays to some chips I grabbed from casinos in Las Vegas (I believe these are so-called Paulson chips which are generally accepted as top of the line and go for >$1 a chip) and find that they are indeed slipperier. This is demonstrated by a tilt test where stacks of Iron Clays consistently fall at a lower angle than the Vegas chips. When they fall they also tend to slide further on my table; on average sliding 55.5 cm compared to 35 cm for the Paulsons and 48 cm for the Splendor chips. I also compared manipulation of both the Iron Clays and the Paulsons and noticed some of the differences in the way these chips handle. The Paulsons are slightly easier to pickup by tilting the stack but in truth 20 chips is too many for me to comfortably handle with either of the chip types. All this said; I'm not convinced that this will impact usability and if that changes in the future there is apparently significant improvement with lightly sanding the chip faces.
There has also been some criticism of the color choice and edge spot design. These concerns are valid because it is important to be able to quickly count stacks of chips to and this is aided by having distinct colors and edge spots. I have an album showing all combinations of chips under the same lighting so you can decide for yourself if distinguishing chips of different denominations is difficult in mixed stacks. While the 50s, 20s and 5s are somewhat similar I don't find that I have difficulty distinguishing them.
I feel that the various other criticisms raised (color of specific denominations, labeled vs unlabeled, denominated vs undenominated) are entirely matters of opinion and am unconvinced that these design choices impact usability in any meaningful way. I backed the Iron Clays because I wanted to avoid the garish colors and immersion breaking casino theme of other poker chip lines so I think of these aspects of the chips as features rather than flaws.
In conclusion I am very satisfied by the Iron Clays. They are sharp looking and do not sacrifice functionality; when considering their price keep in mind that they come with a transportation/storage solution included. I don't want to reduce my impression to an x/10 rating but I do feel that these are a top notch product that fit the theme of a wide variety of board games.
Final Update: Out of curiosity I sanded a stack of chips too see if the slipperiness could be reduced. The white stack is sanded, blue is unsanded and the mixed stack is the Paulson's from prior. The chips were very lightly sanded and there is no perceptible difference in appearance but they now apear to be LESS slippery than the Paulson's! https://imgur.com/a/KsF9uBz

What to consider earlier than playing on line casino poker

those don't have any concept what they are approximately to walk into. Down right here to have a great time, they discern 'why not supply poker a try?' in any case, how special can it be from the house sport they have played their whole lives?"
메이저 토토사이트
For most people, our first poker enjoy was nowhere near a casino. Both we learned from friends or own family contributors in domestic games, or we plugged into the online poker craze. Nonetheless, the idea of playing poker in an real brick and mortar (b&m) on line casino, with all of the attendant points of interest and sounds, is very tempting for most. So what do you need to recognize while moving your home or on line abilties to casino play? There are numerous differences among on line and b&m play, but two factors you can without delay want to take into account are tells and casino kind.
1. Tells
The principle issue the general public have when shifting from online to b&m play regards tells. A tell is a physical movement a player plays which can supply combatants a clue to his hand, inclusive of placing a hand to the face while bluffing.
On line, on account that your fighters can not see you, bodily tells are not really problem (there are online tells, however that is past the scope of this newsletter). In reality, one famous poker room has an advertising campaign where they invite those gamers who've a "bad poker face" to sign up for, for the reason that nobody can see your face on-line. Inside the film "rounders," quoted at the start of this newsletter, the villain is undone by using the way wherein he handles an oreo cookie depending on whether or now not he has a huge hand.
In fact, tells are not often this extreme. Maximum of the time when you play in a casino, in particular a "tourist" on line casino (see following), your warring parties are a whole lot more worried with what they're conserving than what you are.
Even when an opponent scrutinizes you, staring you down at the same time as thinking of a call, they are commonly simply considering how lots they like their own hand. Actual inform-spotting calls for long, cautious remark of a player's inclinations; you are now not possibly to give a great deal away on an man or woman hand.
Experts like to present the affect that they can just appearance right into your soul and recognise what you are retaining, however there may be loads extra to it than that. If you're really concerned you could buy a pair of reflective sunglasses to put on so no person can see your eyes. You can additionally usually wait a predetermined quantity of time (5 or ten seconds) earlier than acting whether your hand is powerful or now not so robust and choose a predetermined spot on the desk to stare at even as looking forward to a person to respond for your action.
2. Kinds of online casino
All casinos are not created same. Ten years in the past, before the explosion in poker popularity, maximum casinos did no longer have a poker room at all, or at pleasant, a small phase of the blackjack floor partitioned away in which or 3 $1 to $2 restriction games would possibly take location.
Manifestly, matters are one of a kind now, however there are nonetheless incredibly unique forms of casinos wherein one may play poker. The first is a card membership. Those are maximum normally observed in locations like california, wherein poker as a recreation of talent is legal, but a few other playing games aren't. Even though they have multiplied to different video games, those clubs are on the whole designed to play poker.
As such, you are probably to locate the most skilled poker gamers right here, despite the fact that no longer necessarily the most powerful and they have their share of vacationers as nicely. The more not unusual sort of casino is a las vegas style casino. These casinos have made fortunes on blackjack, slot machines and roulette and did no longer certainly awareness on poker inside the beyond as it is not a big cash maker for the on line casino.
In contrast to the alternative video games, that are towards the residence (the on line casino) and are based in order that the residence usually wins in the long run, poker is a recreation wherein the on line casino handiest makes cash through taking a percentage of every pot (referred to as "the rake," normally no more than $four a pot) for themselves. Despite the fact that now rare, some casinos take "time" rather than a rake, which means every 1/2 hour a representative of the casino comes round and collects a predetermined amount of money from every player in the game.
Of those las vegas style casinos, you may find what i consider as poker casinos vs. Tourist casinos. A poker casino is one that has constantly had poker as a part of its draw. Those consist of the bellagio and the mirage in las vegas and the taj mahal and borgata in atlantic town. A tourist casino is one of the aforementioned casinos that did now not have poker in any respect until the recent increase made it worthwhile as a draw to get gamers into their casino. Of path each of those kinds of casinos cater to travelers, but the poker casinos are where you are much more likely to locate specialists. Which of those types is extra for your taste is for the person to determine.
The maximum important issue to bear in mind is that whether it's online or inside the casino, poker is poker. Play a clever recreation and you have to rake within the chips, whether or not they're digital or product of clay.

Poker Chip Sets - Essential to The Poker Experience

Poker is a popular card game across the world with the excitement of gambling and potential for huge payoffs. Almost integral to the poker game are the poker chips, and indeed poker does not feel like poker without poker chip sets.
The chips are small discs of various colors representing different denominations, meant as substitutes for real money, which is instead stored in a more secure place. The use of money substitutes, or token money, can be traced back through the 13th to 17th centuries in Europe. Today poker chips are often made according to themes and formats that unite a particular set of chips. This is useful in avoiding counterfeiters, even for games at home or in private.
Casino chips use many different anti-counterfeiting measures, with the most basic being chip coloration and embossed or molded patterning. Holographic inlays, distinctive colored markings on the edges and ultraviolet markings on the inlays further deter potential counterfeiters. Lastly, Radio Frequency Identification or RFID tags are used by some establishments. The latter method can be quite costly, but the establishments that use them feel the cost is justified. Given the difficulty in counterfeiting chips, poker chip frauds in casinos are rare.
If you plan to play in private though, you should be careful of frauds, especially if you are using mass-produced chips. Another reason for these security measures is to identify which casinos they came from. This is usually not a problem, since casinos usually honor only their own chips and it is more of a matter of branding. In Nevada however, casinos are permitted to honor chips from other casinos, and these identifiers make returning chips to the casinos they belong to easier.
Poker Chip Sets - Composition and Coloration
Authentic casino poker chips are made of clay, though not pure clay which is too soft. Special composite mixtures have been made, using trade-secret techniques, the confidential nature of which is yet another speed bump on the counterfeiter's path. Sometimes, special edition poker chip sets may be bought from casinos, though generally poker chips stay in the casinos. Poker chips made for home use on the other hand may or may not be of the same quality as their casino counterparts.
For home use poker chips, ceramic and ABS plastic are the most common materials. When ceramic is used, special compositions allow them to approximate the feel of real clay while maintaining a lower price profile. Ceramic chips are also used in some casinos. ABS plastic chips on the other hand may be molded with a metal disk or slug inside, to give them some heft. For those in Europe, poker chips may come in mother of pearl, which gives them an incomparable sheen and luster. Coloration is standard for different denominations in one set, but may differ across sets. For example, in some places there are standard coloration schemes for chips, while in others there are none. Of note is the US State of Nevada, where casinos are given free rein on their chip designs and colors.
Poker Chip Sets - Sets and Themes
Since poker games often involve large amounts of money, a large number of chips are needed. Standard sets have 300 pieces, while others can have 500 pieces, and yet others reaching a stunning 1000 pieces. Some casinos sell poker chips similar to those used on the floor but with a few differences for identification purposes. This is great for those who want to emulate the feel of their favorite places of gambling at home games. Limited edition sets can be highly collectible, and there is a thriving community of poker chip collectors.
Many of the poker chips are traded via eBay, and the most special ones can go for thousands of US dollars, regardless of face value. Whole sets of these special poker chips can cost even more than the individual pieces. What really ties the members of all poker chip sets together is the design of the chips. Poker chips in one set are often of identical sizes, of consistent coloration, and having similar inlays. Colors and inlays vary according to denomination, but the idea is that chips from one set are identifiably from the very same set.
The edges and rims may also be embossed with characteristic patterns and even have colored sections made via special multi stage molding techniques. The designs may be simple and straight forward, just simple chips with numbers. They could just as well be whimsical, like having humorous or otherwise interesting prints on the inlays. A set of poker chips will often be packaged in a poker chip case or some such container such as an acrylic poker chip carrier or humidor style wooden poker chip case, in the tradition followed in casinos worldwide. One would suppose that if you are going for the authentic feel, then there's no point skimping on the little details.
Poker Chip Sets - Elements of Authenticity
Poker chips are essential to playing poker. One can "play" poker without them, but it will not feel like poker without the chips would it? It is the feel of these poker chips that gives a tactile sense of authenticity. The clink of these poker chips as they hit the table and trade hands adds to the ambiance. The nature of these poker chips ensures that no one can weasel out of the bet that they placed, so it ensures a fair game as far as bets are concerned. Speaking of amounts, the printed or inlaid values may vary depending on where you buy your poker chip sets.

What You Must Know To Host a Home Poker Tournament and Be Successful

You have viewed poker on TV, perhaps played it on the internet, or even in a casino. Now you are ready to try to host your own poker tournament at home in your own game room or basement. Hosting your own poker tourney is much more personable than playing poker on the internet. The smack talk, the cross table body language, the feel of the cards in your hands, and the sound of the cards being shuffled are all great aspects of playing poker at home. Best of all may be the great feeling you have inside when you take down a huge pot of chips or make a great play and get some praise from your buddies. Of course, a badly run poker tournament at home can be a huge headache. So make sure yours is run right and your players will consistently return to your basement for your future poker tournaments.
To run an effective poker tournament competition at home you need a high quality poker table, some top quality poker cards, clay poker chips, some kind of blinds timer clock, and a strategy. Sure you can host a tourney with some cheap cards and chips, but our objective here is to make it feel like a casino experience so your friends will continue to return and play in the future.
A high quality professional felt poker table makes your poker experience that much better but it will also be one of your biggest cash investments. If you do not have a high quality professional felt poker table and do not have the budget for one you can still host a poker tourney with absolutely no problems.
The most important aspect to keep in mind is the overall experience your poker friends are having. If you decide to perform on a cheap table, it will be more challenging to deal with the chips and to collect cards after each hand. Cards will fly across (and sometimes off) the home-made table. If you cannot swing a pro poker table, consider some other choices such as a felt table topper or just buy some poker felt on the internet and cover your table with it. If you're a handyman, consider building your own quality professional grade poker table; it is not that challenging.
Quality poker playing cards are essential for a successful tourney. If you buy a two-dollar cheap set, they will become filthy, difficult, and get bent edges and have to be thrown out after 1 hour of poker play. It is well worth the investment to spend money on some top quality 100% proven poker cards. They will perform better and last much longer. You can even clean them if they become filthy. You will need at least two decks of cards for each poker table. This allows one poker play to be shuffling while one is dealing which keeps the pace of play moving which is important when you are playing with costly blind levels and timers. You should also get at least one cut card for each table to help avoid the end cards of the deck from being revealed.
Poker chips are absolutely necessary to host a serious tournament. There are wide variety of poker chip options on the web that vary from pennies per chip to dollars per chip in cost. You do not have to have the expensive chips to have an excellent time at your tournament. Chips also come with or without cash values on them. Poker chips with cash values can be very practical, but are not necessary. Chips without cash values can be more versatile as you can allocate any value to them. If you choose to use chips without money values just publish a graph of what each colored chip is valued at. The quantity of chips you need really depends on the number of poker players attending your home poker tournament. Make sure you have enough chips so each poker playing has enough chips to make proper poker wagers. (20-30 chips is an excellent target to aim for) You will also want some bigger denomination chips so you can color up the chips when the blind levels reach a higher value later in the night. There are many choices for electronic blinds timers. You can use a simple egg-timer although this becomes very painful to manage as someone has to totally reset it for each blind change and it can be difficult to see at times. The Poker Genie is a great choice, or there are many programs you can get that will run on a laptop and you can even project your laptop onto your television screen. You could also buy a professional blinds timer and mount it to the wall in your game room if you are frequent player.
Finally, you need a strategy. You should know in advance what your buy in price will be, whether you will allow rebuys, what your cash payouts will be, and what your overall blind structure will be. Your buy in and rebuys should be spelled out clearly to people when you invite them to your tournament. No one wants to show up with $20 in their wallet to find out you are having a $30 buy in game. Payouts need to be made and the payout structure should be conveyed to the players or posted on the wall for them to see. Publishing your rules on the wall or via email will eliminate any late night arguments that may occur. When establishing blind level changes consider how long you want your home poker tournament to last. Blind level structures depend on how many people are playing, the actual buy in, how many chips you are giving out and the value of each chip. Here is an example of an excellent blind level poker structure:
Round 1: 100-200 Round 2: 200-400 Round 3: 300-600 Round 4: 500-1000 Round 5: 700-1400 Round 6: 1000-2000 Round 7: 1500-3000 Round 8: 2000-4000 Round 9: 3000-6000 Round 10: 5000-8000 Round 11: 7000-14,000 Round 12: 10,000-20,000 Round 13: 20,000-40,000
It is also a wise decision to go over all the rules with the poker players beforehand and to announce a moderator to make rulings if necessary as well as a back-up moderator for when the first one is not available or in the middle of making a rule at another table. Take your time to plan your home poker tournament so you will continue to have your friends come back to play more poker tournaments in the future. Good luck and I hope your first home poker tournament is a success.

New Poker Set - Advice?

Hello All,
Currently looking to update my poker set from a basic Kmart one to something a bit more substantial. I am currently looking on: https://www.jackspoker.com.au/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwhZr1BRCLARIsALjRVQMBI7dto_Myen6y_ZTOXTrNDTdFhREL8haKFdGvf20rsGYzZXvfU-8aAqgAEALw_wcB
The current product I have my eye on is the Jack's Casino 1000 chip set: https://www.jackspoker.com.au/jacks-casino-x-viper-case-1000-chips-bundle?gclid=Cj0KCQjwhZr1BRCLARIsALjRVQNHl9sEkcG_loJpW7cSqNdiXBiBgX5MKU2Ed1o9l4h0b9Dt1kLelXoaAnABEALw_wcB
The reason for this choice is that I think the 1000 chips would be more than enough if we ever decided to run deepstacks with upwards of 8 people (which we might not be able to do with the 500 set?) however my general inexperience has left me with some questions.

Another benefit of this product I can see is getting to nominate the volume of what chips I need. At my locals we play with 25/100/500/1000/5000/25000 with the big stacks on the final table getting in between 50K-100K (depending on how many people come and how many chips are in the game). In no way am I trying to replicate this with 6-8 people vs 20-30, but I can see that the standard nominations of chips is probably not worth purchasing, instead going for the custom.

If anyone has the time to have a look and make some recommendations for me I would greatly appreciate as I am super interested in poker now and am looking to make my next step in terms of playing more often, which I think I would do with a set that I feel proud of.

A guide to manufacturing

A guide to manufacturing
I just received pre-production samples came in for my game. It's been a journey selecting materials and finishes and coordinating with manufacturers. I thought I'd share some interesting things I learned (along with some glamour shots ;) )(original thread)
[note, this thread was originally posted in another forum, but is being reposted here because it seems to better suit this community's purpose and guidelines]
All of the cards and pieces together
Linen vs Plain Finish
I printed samples in both linen and non-linen finishes. You can see the difference below. I and play-testers noticed that the UV-coating-only was a little slick and hard to pick up off the table.
I was warned about issues with image crispness when using linen finish. I didn't see any difference in crispness, but the finish does diffuse light, making the blacks a little less deep. This is definitely a trade off - I prefer the colors on the slick cards, but prefer the feel of the linen finish.
I've also gotten feedback from other game designers that linen finish can make your cards more prone to scratching and wear and tear. For that reason they recommend only going with linen finish for cards that aren't shuffled especially often.
I tried to take a photo where the effect of the UV coating plus linen finish on the glare pattern and color of the cards was apparent.
For contrast, here's the glare pattern when the cards have only the UV-protective coating without the linen finish
Different manufacturers may have different names for their finishes. If your manufacturer offers both 'varnish' and 'lamination', I believe the lamination is closer to what TheGameCrafter lists as 'UV protective coating'.

Paper Core and Weights
Did you know card printing uses special paper with a thin piece of opaque plastic in the middle? This prevents bleed-through and transparency. You can use black or white core, but black is more opaque and has better guarantees that card front printing won't be visible through the card. (White core is cheaper, though). Personally I don't think there's a good reason to go with white core, unless I guess if the cards will never need their information to be secret and you're very sure your back design is light enough that it won't show through.
Cards also come in different weights, measured in grams per square meter. TheGameCrafter prints 320gsm. Elsewhere I've found 310gsm to be more common and much easier to find. Here is the thickness difference for 10 cards of each paper weight:
The visual difference is minimal. I found the hand feel to be just barely noticeable. A little over half of the playtesters I surveyed said they could feel a difference once prompted.
difference in thickness between 320 gsm (left) and 310 gsm (right) paper

Bridge vs Poker Size
Another thing that is less standard than you might think is card size. Standard poker cards are 2.5"x3.5". Bridge cards (which you usually see in casinos, and may have played with more) are 2"x3.5". You can see the difference below:
Poker vs Bridge sized cards
I went with poker size because these cards have content that really shouldn't interact or interfere with each other. If you're looking to make card to put across the table poker size is a reasonable bet. If you plan for players to hold large hands of cards, consider bridge size.

Production in China
Remember that import duties, shipping, customization fees, and minimum order quantities exist. Shipping that I was quoted was typically on the order of $500+. As a rule of thumb I'd expect the final cost of an order to double or more above your initially quoted cost. This can still be cost effective, however, especially with larger orders.
I'd recommend for orders smaller than 80 or 100 consider on demand printing from US companies/suppliers. At sizes above that it becomes feasible to consider overseas manufacturers, depending on the specifics of your project.
Game Token Recommendations
I tested out several different kinds of tokens and have opinions. The cheapest you'll find are winks (also called bingo chips), but they are pretty small and pretty slick. Other options include smooth 23mm chips and clay or plastic poker chips.
translucent winks vs heavier ABS plastic chips vs opaque winks
My favorite are 23mm ones with knurling (grippy ribs on the sides), which is what I've decided to go with: if you've played No Thanks, they are the same kind of chips.
Things I think you should look for: an appropriate amount of heft, easy to pick up off the table, good size for how many you'll use. I think 23mm plastic is a good size and weight if you're going to use more than say 20 at a time or make a pile of them. For games with fewer pieces at a time, an unexplored estimation is that larger or heavier chips would make sense: plastic, clay, or wood - possibly closer to 3cm.
My parting piece of advice is that it's very important to get samples from the manufacturer before placing a large order. Typically the way this works is like a deposit against the final order: one sample is fairly expensive but the cost will be subtracted from the total amount you were originally quoted for the whole order. For me this came out to about $180. The purpose of the sample is to correct any errors the manufacturer made before you're stuck with the whole order of them. Assume they will make some.

I hope that helps! Feel free to ask me questions.This is a link to my game's page as well, if you'd like to hear more about that one specifically.

Looking to buy a good set of chips. Any suggestions?

I've been playing with my roommates for a couple years and we're all moving out next year, so I figured I'd invest in a nice set of my own. What brands to people like? I'm willing to invest $100-150. Thanks for any advice
