I think you won’t like them at all. Luckily for you I have decided to buy a set and yours will be perfect for my game. Just remind me your PayPal :)

Lol same here. I probably won't ever put my set into play. But I wanted them just in case I run a four-table tourney one day hahaha.
Bring them over. We will get them in play

This is just the 3rd trip to the post office.

I will get through this group buy eventually!

These came out AMAZING! I'm starting to regret only ordering a sample set.

If anyone needs some quick cash, let me know. Interested in a 2 table set.

I'm working on a cash set now. If I do another group buy, and decide to offer racks, I think rack orders will be required to be in increments of 60 (that's the number that Matsui packages them in). It's the reboxing of the racks that was the biggest pain in the butt with this order.

So start figuring out how you can use 60 racks, if you want to order racks in the next group buy :)
Or find a friend for sharesies.

I was purposely not checking this thread because I have been dying to see these in person, but when Mel confirmed my shipping info, I broke down. These are friggin' amazing! Gorgeous. Great work, Mel and @Johnny5! Can't wait to see these in person!
Now I am wondering if I should have ordered more. After all, you never know when you'll host a spur-of-the-moment 30 table tournament, right?

Do you own a Santa Claus suit, Mel?

Here in my little rural community, every December there is an event called the "Santa Crawl", it's a pub crawl that hits all the local watering holes (the entire town is 1 block, but there are still about 8 places to get a drink, haha). Anyways, you can't participate unless you have a santa suit. So, just about everyone here has some version of a santa suit. Yep, my santa suit is camo. :) It's a BLAST, and includes a "snowball fight" in one of the bars, where the snowballs are large marshmellows.

Good times.

I wish I would have ordered more too. I suspect I'll do a second run of these tourney chips when I order my matsui 43mm cash set :)

Crap. I am 7 chips off. When you get your orders, check your chip counts and let me know if these 7 chips are yours, and I will send them to you.

Dammit!

Never mind. I found a 7-chip sample set order that I hadn't filled yet. Hopefully everyone's orders should be right! Fingers crossed!

@liftapint - I've seen packaging done right, BUT your packing is another level it really seems like you had a professional pack these!

I felt guilty about how many flat rate padded envelopes I used as padding. I hope everyone re-uses their packing materials. The tree-hugger in me would feel a lot better if packing materials were re-used!

And thank you for the compliment. I think that perhaps after this group buy, I might qualify as a professional shipper, haha. I've at least had plenty of practice by now. Lots of boxes!

I definitely do! Almost all of the 3D printing stuff I send out is all re-used padding/boxes from prior PCF shipments :)

I learned the hard way, however, that I cannot re-use a flat rate box for anything except for flat rate. That's dumb; but I get it; they don't want us getting free boxes to send priority mail. However, I would expect box condition to dictate that it was used to re-ship. Oh well.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!

As your chipments arrive, be sure to look carefully in the packing materials for the dealer buttons. I usually put them taped between two pieces of cardboard, and tucked up against the wall of the box. It might just look like box filler. Don't throw out the dealer buttons!!!!! Be sure to verify your order ASAP.

If these aren't slippery, I may just be full of regret. I may be looking to put a set together at some point.

Such great work, Mel. I'd like to think that my little bit of input (when you asked) was what pushed this set over the top... but I know that it was 99.9% you. Excellent work on these.

The park place are slippery and these are nothing like that, these are also squared off and make more of a clunk sound over a plink sound, really checks all the boxes at least for me. They feel great as well.
