i would love to find a rack or two of Bahamia quarters. If you have some you are willing to part with, please let me know!!

Is there more than one version of these? I don't even know.

Thanks!!!

Yeah, Apache sold two versions, not sure how many were produced though. Good luck in your search!

Not of the fan of the spot colors on the yellow at all. +1 for blue.

The yellows and purples are beautiful. I can tell you that almost any blue chip ($1 or fractional) does not contrast well with the largely blue inlays on the $5s. I'm looking to buy some fracs for Bahamia set as well :)

This may be one cash set where I make my local crew pony up for $1/$1 blinds. This would be WELL out of their comfort zone. But it might be fun to have a "high stakes" night (relatively speaking)...ha ha.

I thought purple would look better with the dollars

I've used these particular lavender (light purple) chips with my (soon to be liftapint's) Bahamia chips. I found they worked better than blue fractionals as they contrast better with the 5's (as JDabs26 mentioned).

Again, use the multiplier trick, and play with all authentic Bahamia chips -- and maybe even get those gorgeous Bahamia hundos into play!

Playing .25/50: players buy in for whatever you allow, say $50. You give them four times that amount -- $200 -- in chips.

You play the evening as regular $1/$2. When you cash out, count their dollars, divide by 4, and give them that amount of cash.

-----------------------------------

Hidden advantage #1: no need for hideous hot-stamped bogus Bahamia chips whose spots don't fit in (IMO, of course).

Hidden advantage #2: everyone gets used to playing $1/$2 in case they ever get to a real casino.

Yeah, yeah, I know -- I'm the only one who does this. But it works, assuming you're capable of multiplying and dividing by 4.

I like it (multiplier strategy). I am capable of simple math. When I suggested this to my crew, they were not keen on the idea. But I think I will "suggest" it again, since I don't actually love the fracs either. Since I host, maybe I can do more than "suggest".

We tried this a couple times. I thought it was a good idea, but no one else in my group seemed to like the idea. Same with using $25 chips as quarters. My solution was to stop hosting $0.25/0.50 and host only 1/1, 1/2 and the occasional 2/5 games :)

Nothing wrong with exerting your (host) power.

BTW, only a few hours left, I see they're out for delivery ;)

Everything is for sale for the right price :D

Kidding aside, assuming the OP doesn't want them, send me a message and we can probably work something out.

Thank you. But I think I am going to make the gals wear their big girl pants for this game, and play $1/$1. That or use the multiplier strategy. I am going to go ahead and close this ad (when I get to a real computer), since I am not going to go the frac route any longer.
