Hi all!

I realised that I never did post in this section when I became a member in order to ask some questions regarding Dunes-chips. :)

I've always liked playing and watching poker (followed WSOP for a couple of years) but I've never known anything about the vast selection of different poker chips that there are, it's only recently that this has come to my attention and I feel supremely enlightened as well as afraid for my wallet. :cautious: I don't partake in larger games of poker or tournaments but I do play a lot of board games and a bonus would be to have some nice chips instead of inferior ways of representing economy such as paper money.

I've ordered some samples of chips that are relatively easy for me to acquire in Sweden and of the ones I've tried I really enjoy The Ascona-chips, both the feel and the look, so much so I'm considering purchasing a set of them for my multiple uses.

But I'm also very interested in trying out some Paulsons since I've read and watched/heard so much about them. I've never held/used "real" clay chips but I imagine that they would feel nice to handle. I've purchased some samples of Horseshoe Cincinnati which I can't wait to get home! :D

Välkommen landsman! Where in Sweden are you? I live in Äppelbo, a small place in Dalarna. You will not be disappointed with paulsons by the way!

Tackar, nice to see so many Swedes here! I live in Småland, Hovmantorp specifically. :D

(I'll continue writing in english so that other non-swedish speaking members won't feel left out :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:)

Yeah I have that same feeling about the Paulsons, worried that I might "have to" get a set after trying them, haha. :nailbite: Is there any easy way of getting them in Scandinavia or is it through sites in the US such as Apache Poker Chips? I saw an auction on Tradera for Paulsons "Private Cardroom" hot stamps but it has ended and the seller doesn't have any other auctions so he can't be contacted... :bag:

Best way is to buy from members here through the classifieds. I have made a lot of expensive purchases with no trouble whatsoever. This is an awesome group of people. Otherwise there’s apache or any of the site vendors that sell chips from closed casinos from time to time. Don’t hesitate to pm if you have any questions.

I saw the cardrooms, was a poor breakdown though. And he had 5s AND 10s, complete waste of expensive chips.

Your best bet is to buy paulsons here in the classifieds or from a vendor like chiproom here at pcf. There is also ebay, but the price can be a lot higher than what the same chips go for here. I also saw that auction on tradera, but he had a so-so breakdown and was asking like twice what they are selling for here.
