Do you play with your chips? Do you just collect? Have you stopped playing but still collect?
It'll be interesting to see people's responses....
I regret selling my vineyards now even though it was far from complete. I might have to start buying again... If I can find any!
I play poker and I have used maybe half of my chips. That is ONLY due to the lack of games based on my situation. Hasn't been regular since I haven't had a place to live in over 10 months. Prior to that I lived in an area that didn't seem to care for a regular game. However, I recently bought a house and hope I can rekindle my home poker games back to once monthly (from quarterly). Good neighbors, friends, coworkers etc. I use DD poker timer and display on my big screen with obv nice chips, decent tables, and appropriate structure. I just want to host regular fun games again. I really enjoy hosting.
ps: I also play online but only for play $$ (about the equiv of playing solitaire or video pinball, lol)
Hey Hey, wait till I'm done building my set
You may have some serious sticker shock for what they are going for these days. I just started mine and my kids already have to settle for community college.
Good luck with all things poker!
Started out playing tourneys with co-workers (still do, but those games are few and far between as they lost interest), and now play a monthly tourney as part of a league (I'm one of the rotating hosts), and I tend to host a game between the league games. Colour issues and height inconsistencies with the chips I had led me to search out a better set, and that led me to the various chip and home poker sites (between a plastic card addiction and now chips, my wallet is officially doomed). I've never played online, except on this site.
Since we normally play tournaments, the Yak large denom set gets the call, with the Yak lower denom set used for the 25c / 25c cash game for the bust outs who wish to keep playing (no overlapping denoms between sets). The CPS set has been used twice, and I'm on the fence about keeping them. They are nice, but I don't like them as much as the ceramics.
I used to stack them in front of the computer screen as I played.
