Hi Everyone,

Been looking here for quite some time, but decided to join and continue my chip journey. I've always kept casino chips from visiting my Dad in Vegas (during the family fun years :))which started my fascination with the design and feel of poker chips.

I started a few years ago with a large set of CC Pharaohs (thanks to @hobbyphilic and his Youtube channel). This chip obsession has created a new social event for my Dad to get out of his house (he moved moved here from Vegas and loves poker). This in turn has created a greater bond between us, my brothers, kids, and a couple of awesome work friends. My wife just enjoys creating a whole spread of food and watches movies while we play (she isn't obsessed like I am with everything poker). We host a game once a month that I'd invested in to make a real party out of it, and they were a bit blown away by my chips, table (Triton Poker), and Kem Cards. Trying to talk my wife into one of these for our dining room table (Link).

I've decided to at least work towards a couple of Paulson chip sets and I am beginning an inlay design of my Custom CPC with a fictional space travel destination theme. I'd order them tomorrow if I had that down. Once I have that design, I'll put it up here from some honest critique along with color choices. I'm hoping my combination of art and I.T. background will help me with the process :).

Thanks for allowing me to join this amazing forum!

Welcome! Good to see another chipper from my area. I play in a home game with another chipper in cottonwood heights and I occasionally host out in Tooele as well. If you're ever interested in getting out for a game or looking for more players let me know! Happy to bring chips to play with (either for the game or just shuffling and admiring :p).

That sounds great! Many a times I'm wanting to play but my family/friends aren't available. Talking and admiring chips would make the game that much better. Thanks!

Not Idaho.
'Not Idaho' in you location makes me laugh. :D
Well. I'm NOT from Idaho.

Idaho was not a very strong represented state for a long time, then 3 weeks ago a bunch showed up. That was my sneaky attempt to throw them off my scent.....

Reach out if you ever need anything! PNW and our area is a good group. Great people.

Welcome! Love seeing more chippers in Utah. The wife and I moved to Orlando for school 2 years ago but we were in West Jordan from 2015-2019 and I was born and raised in St George. We’ll be back as soon as I’ve got my degree!

Cool! We just moved from West Jordan to Herriman last year. I usually just say Salt Lake City cuz nobody's heard of Herriman outside the state. Economy's booming here so the housing market is kind of outrageous right now.
