I've had a home game going for around 15 years now. We used to play more frequently, but still try to play monthly. We usually have 8-10 players now. My china clay chips(Progen80) have seen plenty of use and have held up great!! We've always done starting stacks of $20k and blinds start at $100-200 every 12 or 15 minutes. I have 200-$100 chips, 125-$500 and $1000 chips, 50-$5000 and $25000 chips. Tourney usually lasts about 3-4 hours. We do $20 buy-in with re-buys for the first hour.
