I decided it was easier to start up a new thread specifically to address the inlays and chip design for Midnight Casino:

MC-43-chips (1).png
MC-test3.png
MC-43-chips2.png




I decided rather than polluting the months old thread I would show the mockups I have to this point and let everyone give me their feedback. Like I said, most of my friends are in their 20s and are the type that would look at a chip set like Dia De Los Muertos and say "Dude, I gotta get me one of those", they're heavy metal fans more than chip collectors.

I was going to identify the chip sets, but that looked like a mess, let's just say the extra stars and 00:00 time corresponds with set 2.

I admit the second chip design is growing on me. It makes the inlay the star of the show, and I *really* like the stars and inlay of the second inlay design. The 00:00 is fine by me =) I think it adds to the effect. I welcome feedback, and will keep this open for some time to get some feedback on it.

Chip design 2 for sure, although I think the first is decent.

It would be cool if you could get a Matsui/abbiati chip design with the first one. They remind me of EPT chips

Amazing love the 2nd chip design. Clean and nice colours, inlay stands out.

I would suggest a new moon on 25 since it looks v close to the 100 right now.

It's way better without the 00:00 in there, which just clutters the whole look.

I like both chip designs a lot also, but second for me, for the same reason that you mentioned. It allows the inlays to stand out

Honestly, I may just have Woody take out the 00:00 (I will keep it on the side of the chip, however) because without it, the second design has a sharper contrast, it's a darker color and the stars are more defined.

I was going to put 00:00 on the perimeter of the chip, as part of the design. It might be better to do that. You know how like the Fall River Club has the dollar amount printed on the side and the letters FRC? That was my idea for the 00:00.

How about having the 25 be a new moon?
Would emphasize the whole lunar cycle concept more and couple this with what @allforcharity suggests about the eclipse and I think you've got a bangin' inlay!!

EDIT: Did not see what @PokerDots said :whistle: :whistling: Beat me to it!! :banghead: :)

Suggestions that have come in are: new moon for 25, solar eclipse for 25k, lunar eclipse/blood moon for bounty and remove the 00:00 from the inlay, putting it on the side of the chip.

This has a lot of potential! Really liking the concept...just a couple tweaks to get it to that finished product :tup:

Any pictures of the Fall River Club? Can't seem to find any

Edit: Do you mean free river club?

Do you mean adding 00:00 to the edges or the outer part of the chip face? I think having 00:00 on the edges would be okay, but with denom would be too cluttered. Adding it to the outer part of the chip face would not be aesthetically pleasing i think (like the EPT)

I also think the T500 has too much moon. The jump from the t100 is a lot

i'm agreeing that the 00:00 is a bit much but, i like the extra "brighter" stars depicted on the 00:00 inlays alone though absent on the whole chip/clay style mocks w/ the 00:00

i could take or leave the new moon (as that's just no moon) or the eclipse (as that seems like a radical departure on the 25k ~although it is a working idea)

i guess the chip design depends on how much you value having the 00:00 on the chip edge?

For the T25k, I like having more of a maroon, or some kind of warmer red. In general, given the inlay has a very classy feel, I'd probably go the route of having warmer chip colors in general. The green, (black), purple, and blue seem fine, but the yellow and red are quite harsh for my liking.
Just my 0.02

The edges (the chip face is fine, I am not copying the EPT chip), and yes, I did mean the Free River Club. My brain failed.

If you look at the Free River Club chips, the letters FRC and the amount is printed one time along the edge of the chip.

I probably could do something unremarkable on the chip face (like a crescent moon on each of the six sections), but I don't see it as necessary.

Model 3, this puts the chip value on the chip instead of on the inlay.
Plastics design? This is pretty good too! Will it still be ceramics or would you try to make plastics?
I would like to point out that your midnight should be changed to 00:00 instead of 00.00 (which looks like 0 dollars)
Also I think having a digital clock or something would give it more context as midnight

Sunfly Polyinno 43's, like all the others except the 312's.

IIRC, They are a hybrid of ceramic and labeling. I don't know the exact specifics of what their composition is but Polyinno's are nice and durable, and unlike Polychrom, the label will never look weird.

I agree with the 00:00 design rather than the 00.00.

My only suggestion would be the font of the denom. Its a little too slight for me. I see how the half moon of the zeroes works well with the theme, but I think it loses some readability. Not a big deal, just .02 from a middle aged guy's failing vision. :)

Funny you mentioned that. Look at design 3. The new chip design has the amount in four places on the chip and the font is easy and distinct.

3 is a nice compromise point. The chip design isn't dominant like in design 1 nor is it passive like in 2.

The biggest change I would make here is to make it say 00:00.

I'm in the "remove 00:00" camp. Can you do something more subtle? It's a circular inlay, can you somehow incorporate hands of a clock pointing at midnight in the background?

This was a typo this morning before I finished my coffee!!! I thought I typed :

That's awesome, dude. We all make mistakes, we're only human. Trust me, I thought I sent a message to a guy for a rack of dolphin blue THC's asking for his PayPal and I forgot to send it.

Maybe have it on the casino somewhere and just have Upland, CA on the bottom? Spitballing here.

Forgot casinos don't have clocks.

I still think design 2 is better than the third because its simple without a clash of bright colours, but it might be a little empty as a 43mm
