Hello all, new member here, just thought id say hi. Im kind of new to this "hobby", ive got a VERY small collection of chips ive gathered from various casinos over the years. I recently decided i wanted a proper set of chips for poker games and my home blackjack table. I did a lot of reading here and trying to find the exact chip brand i wanted for my first quality set. I decided on a set of obsolete casino chips made by bourgogne et grasset, im ordered them a few days ago so looking forward to receiving them.
Just want to say there is such a wealth of knowledge on these forums, so thank you as the reading ive done here has been very helpful. Only thing i must say, is this lingo here is a bit unusual for me, its quite the learning curve.

Thanks for the welcome. I hope this first set of chips will not lead me down a dark path of getting more and not being able to stop.... lets hope i can be satisfied:)

Hello and welcome!

There's a sample set available for Canadian members that will help you down that dangerous, expensive path! The sample set, itself, is available for free!

Thanks for the info. I dont think id want to trouble people for sample sets. I have a pretty good idea that for my next set, if i decide to go there, would be a set of bud jones chips. What im really into is real casino chips from defunct casinos, there is a set ive had my eye on but the price on it is not where i think it should be, so i will wait. Im probably also going to want to try to add more chips to the set that i have incoming.
