These are the latest mockups I have gotten for Midnight Casino -- The one with the silver chip was Design 12, and the one with the purple chip is design 13. Among my friends and people I've asked, the opinion has been more towards design 12, and with the purple number 500. :)

Among my friends and the people I've asked, 4 have preferred design 12 so that's already in the lead. One had a slight preference towards 13 but told me I "couldn't go wrong either way", I'm going to weigh in on the boards' opinion.

Also if people are interested, I will be starting orders for these, both sample sets and I feel humbled and honored, full sets.

I'm going to keep the poll up for 7 days, however, the interest obviously can continue after that =)

My 2 cents:
The bottom set with minor adjustments:
On the $25 change the gray to yellow
On the $500 change the gray to hot pink as used in the $500 on the upper set
Use the $5000 with the blue from the upper set

There’s so many threads, I’m not sure which is official sample order. As always, in for a sample of whatever you make publicly available (chips/herons/buttons/etc.).

The 1st thread was the concept stage, the 2nd thread was the mockups and since the mockups are finished this is the finalization and interests. The next thing I will be doing be taking orders.

The next 7 days will be finalizing design 12 or 13 and then I will start the order taking, Once I get the designs finalized and hear back from Sun fly, I will go ahead and let you order.

I didn’t even notice the difference in the 25k chips. And I agree, the light blue is better.

A boardie has written me asking about buying a small set if other people are also interested in buying. If he's in for it, that makes me and two other people that want full sets, I think that's enough to put this in group buy status. :)

It's so small it's hard to notice.

I wonder what would happen if we took the light blue spots from the T25k in 13 and the rest of the set as 12. I imagine chippers aren't going to have a problem with a conflict of color since the t5k is 5 edgespots and the t25k is just 3.

also at this point, design 12 has nearly 80% of the vote. Barring a complete vote flood or some sort of hacking, design 12 will be the final design that goes to Sunfly.

No conflict if you use the 5k from 13

1st 4 from 12 and 2nd 2 from 13 ... winner

These are superb. Did you design and executed the artwork by yourself ?

The ideas were mine, the actual design belongs to @p5woody. :) I gave him a couple of guidelines and told him to make a set that would make a 20-year old girl say "I gotta get me one of those", I'd say he succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.

So you’ve shown them to 20-year old girls?

What ? Which part, beyond your wildest dreams ? You mean there were more than one 20 yr old girl who finally proposed ??

It's a chip set, not a wedding ring, smartass.

I have some friends in the youth music scene, guys and girls that range in age from mid-teens to about 25 years old and their opinion is that this chip set is incredible.

Those of you who have voted a slight split (such as wanting to see red 5k spots and the light blue spots on the 25k with the rest of the set from design #12, this is a comparison for you all to view.

Side by side to me, either 5k works don't even have a preference, but the light blue in the 25k is the show winner!! Really makes that chip pop!! Wow

I really like ^that^ lineup (with the red/pink 5000) for a very significant reason: each chip plainly stands out as it's own color with no confusion.

The green chip is absolutely green, the black chip is unmistakenly black, the yellow chip is clearly yellow, the red chip is totally red, and the navy chip is obviously dark blue -- because on each and every chip, the secondary chip colors compliment the primary color without overpowering it. The backup singers aren't trying to drown out the lead vocalist.

But the red/blue 5000 chip -- as pretty as it may be in a vacuum -- fails on this front, and really doesn't fit in with the flow of the rest of the chips in the set. The blue is trying too hard to say 'look at me!" instead of supporting the red primary color, as was done with all of the other chips.

I think I may offer a choice for people. I know one guy wants a set with the blue spots on the 5k.

This will allow me to satisfy everyone. If design #12 wins, I will allow buyers of 300 chips or more to choose between red 5k spots and blue 5k spots. The rest of the chips (25, 100, 500, etc.) will be sold with the one design.

Nevada Jack sells both grey and pink quarters. I don't see why this can't be a viable option.

Liking what i see, I love the V7 style hybrids, best use of these type of chips.

Will be interested come order time. Will you be allowing single denomination orders (ie: racks of say 25's & 25K's) or will it only full sets and sample sets?

BTW, like the 5K with blue spots, the purple base 500 & have no real preference on the 25K both of them work. Nice work!

If you want a few hundred of a certain type, I don't judge. You can order whatever you want.
