So I am a neophyte but want to get some better chips for a home game that could be either tournament style or cash games so I am going with a cash set.

I am just looking for some feedback about the colors and designs here. Personally I am pretty happy with the $5, $25, and $100 chips here but I just cannot seem to dial in the 25¢ and the $1 chip. I like the blue/white/red $1 enough to run with it but I am also unsure about the spot progressions/patterns. I like having the triple large spot on every chip to give them some cohesiveness so that's what I was running with. What say you hive?

Thanks for looking.

(Edit, the $1 should have horseheads on it too but doesn't, I also might go FDL with these since it IS a french bulldog on the inlay)

i would take the $1 and $5 from the first set with the quarter, $25, and hundo from the second set.

inlay is a tougher decision imo, but FDL for a frenchie isn't a bad idea :D

After comparing them side by side. I agree. I like the $25 chip in the second pic a lot.

The colors are good, but I'm not a fan of the same spot on just the $1 and $25. Either same spot throughout the set, or different, or 2 alternating designs - but not 4 patterns across 5 chips.

Here's an Idea, make the $1 your favorite, I mean edge spot and colors the way you want (assuming thats whats in the pot most) and then base the rest off of that.
I do like spot progression but when they are your chips us your favorite edge spot for the mane chip and colors.

Just my opinion..

I like the black one and this last set.

Ok. So I think i've come up with a fun set. I technically have 3 different spot patterns but the quarter is pretty close to the 5 and the hundo and I think it will look pretty cool in a case.

Thoughts?

PS the Inlay is not done, I will have a better idea what that will look like in a few weeks when J5 gets his schedule cleared!

I can't seem to dial in the $1...

I've got a few choices here.

I personally like the newer inlay better. It seems ... classier.

With a black spot on the 5 and 25 Id be tempted to make the black spot on the 25 a Retro or Dark Green

Just my 2 cents
