Yes we're looking into this at the moment too. The initial concern is they may be too expensive per chip for most of our customers. We were the first (to the best of my knowledge) to make ceramic chips back in the early 2000s in China, we gave it up after a few years as nobody was buying them. I think we did these in 2004-2006, sold to 5-star deal at the time. We had 2-3 chip styles active if i remember correctly. Anyways, things change in 15 years, hopefully our engineers can figure out a more cost effective way to make these now.

Naturally if we're going to have 1 rack for everything we would need to make sure to err slightly on the larger size for both diameter and thickness.
Please don’t do this. There are already tons of “universal” racks out there. Sized to fit all, but in reality they fit none.

@AmbassadorGames , will there be any new chip sets this holiday season at Costco?
I don't think so, at least not from us. The item did not do as well as hoped; the expected cause behind that was with all the restrictions in 2020 about social distancing, limitations on gathering, etc., people did not see the point in having a new poker set. Hopefully in 2022 we can get another one going with them. We're working on some new items based on the suggestions we've received in these forums.

Anything new for Christmas 2022??
Unfortunately not. As we are a general 'board games' company sometimes other areas get hot and take up all the focus & resources for new developments, which has happened this year. We are still working through new chip structures as discussed in alot of other posts here. Hope to have something to report for 2nd half 2023.

Games that need poker chips? Not just substituting chips for money, like monopoly or something, but games that inherently use chips as counters. This might let you make higher quality chips since you would need fewer of them per game. Higher markup for fewer chips of better quality.

yeah we do some basic blackjack kits, multi-casino kits, but these are really cheap and we typically include something akin to 2g bicycle chips. unfortunately most of the time budgets dont allow for much else, as these kits retail for $15-$20. Many years ago we tried to make more luxurious home casino sets with a higher grade of chip, but they didn't sell.

Michigan Rummy or Jackpot Dice
Or games like “No Thanks” or “LCR”

@Poker Zombie maybe other games that inherently use chips for scoring?

I'm a bad one to ask. We use chips for every game that uses money or tracks scores. Hell, I'll even play cribbage with poker chips. :cool

The nature of the gaming hobby has trended away from $15-$30 games over the years, and most games now come with better components and a $40-$100 price tag.
