I got my chips today! Ordered 10 of pretty much everything to mess with some different manufactures and materials. Really wish there was a frac that could go with the palace chipco, for some reason I really like ceramics over regular plastics. I could get a gigantic set of 1s, 5s and 25s but in my current game it wouldn't be playable without a quarter ;(

If your buy-in is $50, just give everyone $200 (x4) worth of chips and play it as $1/2 blinds. When it comes time to cash out you just divide by 4 and everything is square. Problem solved!!

My Empress Star cash set has quarters, but this is what I'll do with the next cash set I buy that doesn't have quarters in the set. It would get some of those nice looking high denoms in play too as an added benefit.

*this is not my idea, I believe @pltrgyst is the one that put this idea in my head*

I was fine doing this originally and think it would make people play more seriously instead of calling everything with the "it's only a quarter or dollar" mentality, but others really don't like the idea for whatever reasons.

Maybe they could be made... You can personnalize a ceramic blank just as you want ...

And with the attractive price of those ChiCo, it shall not be hard to raise interest to meet min. quantities.

You inspired me so I just ordered
40 x $1s
30 x $5s
15 x $25
10 x $100

Already have 10 x 5s so I figured I could make a to go rack for 35 more dollars shipped. Guess we could use the 25s as quarters in small games
I find these Chipco crazy durable. And while the design isn't art it is attractive and straight forward. Your setup will work well as a heads up tournament too. Great for killing time.

Thanks. Any ideas about cleaning chipco Chips? I picked up 300 of the Palace chips and was wondering if there was anything to do to help bring back their original pop.

yeah - how do you clean chipco's without hurting them and making them worse.... I was thinking dish soap and a sponge - but then should I oil them? with mineral oil?

any info from the wise sages and chip wizards would be appreciated! - chipco poker chips

Oiling Chipco (ceramics) is not required. Oiling is useful for Clay chips.
Regarding washing ceramics, I don't know and will let other reply.
