PCF is an excellent website for advice. What would we be if we just patted everyone on the back and said "Good Job"? Mistakes are just that - mistakes. Can you have fun? Sure! I don't think that @BGinGA is suggesting otherwise. What he is doing is helping the OP, and other potential first time buyers. Imagine this: Person looking to buy their first set of chips comes to PCF. A quick search comes up with "First Ever Set" thread. Wanders in, and everyone says how great the odd denominations are. He then buys an identical breakdown. BG's comments at least give our next first set buyer pause. He points out the errors, and the next buyer gets to make the decision - an informed decision.Look, I’m relatively new too and mean no disrespect to @BGinGA ...but your post @BGinGA completely assumes that the OP is like you. What if the OP doesn’t care about anything you care about?
One of my most fun games is a limit game with my 8 and 10 year olds using slot tokens I got from @navels in a charity auction. They stack like shit, piles are knocked over at least 6-7 times per game...and everyone is happy.
I’m a volunteer firefighter and since I’m the only one who can’t afford anything better than dice chips, my Starburst Set is what we play with. Usually as traditional denominations (divided by 100) but sometimes as anything but normal just for fun!
Game efficiency is not always the goal. A lot of people play poker for fun. Please let us not forget that!!!! @Camerasniper — those chips are awesome...enjoy them!
Let's not forget who started all this: You see now what happens, @Camerasniper, when you choose a non-standard breakdown!? You've turned friends into enemies, you've unleashed yet another PCF flame war!
A simple haha emoji does not do this comment justice. That was funny..... laughed out loud. At our game we tip for really funny jokes made at the table. $1 in the bank! Haha.
The standard definition of a prime number is "a number which can be divided evenly by only itself and 1", so 1 definitely qualifies.Not a prime number, just sayin'
I think it used to be though, but the definition can changed.
Sometime in the days of yore they added the "...that is greater than 1"The standard definition of a prime number is "a number which can be divided evenly by only itself and 1", so 1 definitely qualifies.
Old fart math rules!

Not this wishy-washy quibbling:
"The confusion begins with this definition a person might give of “prime”: a prime number is a positive whole number that is only divisible by 1 and itself. The number 1 is divisible by 1, and it’s divisible by itself. But itself and 1 are not two distinct factors. Is 1 prime or not? When I write the definition of prime in an article, I try to remove that ambiguity by saying a prime number has exactly two distinct factors, 1 and itself, or that a prime is a whole number greater than 1 that is only divisible by 1 and itself. But why go to those lengths to exclude 1?
My mathematical training taught me that the good reason for 1 not being considered prime is the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, which states that every number can be written as a product of primes in exactly one way. If 1 were prime, we would lose that uniqueness. We could write 2 as 1×2, or 1×1×2, or 1594827×2. Excluding 1 from the primes smooths that out."

Love the idea, looking at a 12 1/2 cent chip myself, with 50 cent, $2, $10, and $50.Let's not forget who started all this: You see now what happens, @Camerasniper, when you choose a non-standard breakdown!? You've turned friends into enemies, you've unleashed yet another PCF flame war!
Btw, I'm thinking about a tourney set with only prime number denoms, any feedback, criticisms, or advice are welcome.
