With the Nor'Easter headed toward the East Coast, shipping items may be delayed by about two days starting tomorrow (Wednesday, 12/16/20.

Depending on to whom you listen, the area between Philly and New York will see anywhere from 3 inches (according to the National Weather Service) to "the end of the world, storm of the century, ice age" (according to our local news).

In a very odd week, I've gotten three large orders from international customers.

All claim to be living in different countries, none are members here, and all want to use a credit card to pay. None requested samples.

Based on the poor grammar, odd behavior, repeated changes to add chips to the order, and misspellings, all three appear to be the same person using different names and shipping addresses. One was for 1,000 chips. Another for 500. The latest today was for 350, but the guy has changed the order twice.

All have been cancelled.

In another thread, Belgrade asked:

"Sorry for the off topic, but imo a $ 10 chip is missing.
I wanted to buy a set of KW several times but there is no $ 10 :(
Why ? I need a $ 10 because I'm playing $ 2- $ 2 pot limit.
So I need even numbers and the $ 20 doesn't suit me... Ideally only $ 2, $ 10 and $ 100.

Maybe one day a KW $10 chip ?"

I wasn't involved in the original design of the Key West, which included only nine denominations: NCV, $0.25, $1, $5, $25, $100, $500, $1,000 and $5,000.

So the original idea of Key West was an old-school design on the H mold with muted, traditional Vegas colors and a clear early 60s vibe. The denominations included in the lineup were very traditional, very old school.

The initial run of Key Wests, with only those nine denominations, came out in late 2004. I bought the design from Apache Poker Chips in 2011. I've added eight new chips -- bounty, 5-cent, $1 blue, $2, $2.50, $20 charcoal, $20 canary and $25,000.

There are no plans for a $10 chip right now, due to the time and expense and other concerns required to add a denomination. There are many, many reasons for this, making it impractical.

I will send a PM detailing some of those reasons, so you understand.

Thank's Dennis for all the explanations.

Our friends at Jetacer finished the remake of the Key West blackjack game in FTP, and have posted it on the site, along with a new version of the slot machine game. They're still tweaking the slot machine, and the "win" sound effects are on their way soon. They wanted to get both games up on the site by today, 12/31, the "end of life" for the earlier versions written in Flash.

Sales of Key West chips may be paused for a bit longer than expected.

As expected, we obtained proper business licenses on Jan. 4, 2021 as Continental Games, LLC, but our state is dragging its feet getting us a key piece of paperwork we need to set up the bank account and link to PayPal. It normally takes 48 hours, but the business service folks say it could take "two to three weeks."

That would bring us to the end of January, 2021. Not good news.

If things happen faster, I will announce here.

Yes. Setting a $10 minimum would keep it simple. Bets = $10, payouts = $10 / $15.

We do a version of this at our Tuesday blackjack events.
Do I need to give the players 100 points to start in 5-point chips only? Or can I use 25-point chips to the mix (maximum 2x 25-point chips)?

You could certainly use $25 chips on the table, too. The starting stacks do not have to be $100, or 20 x $5 chips. That's just what we start with for each person because we have enough $5 chips to give each player 20 when both tables are full.

Our blackjack games were not live cash games. They were "fun night-" type games for seniors, so we started with everyone getting the same amount. That way, the players could tell pretty easily who was winning and who was losing chips. Occasionally, when someone would be on a winning streak, we would pay their bets with $25s and even $100s.
