I have no idea what to vote here. I think subjectively, it's either a 1 or a 5. I mean, you either love the spots, mold, and old school inlay, or you don't right? Feels like a certain hit or miss with folks.

Objectively, I just don't know. We're only judging the inlay.
Probably the easiest vote yet.
What makes the inlay by itself a killer, certain 5 for you? I don't have a ton of exposure to old school designs or chips, so I honestly don't know how amazingly perfect this is, or what could have been done better or altered?
Solid 4. Great homage design
As a 4, something in the inlay you might have switched up? Is there a way this would've been a 5 for you, or maybe just it being an homage limits it to a 4, that there's a higher bar/threshold to hit a 5 compared to new, original content?

I gave it a 4 because I like it a lot. And I like the take on the original, which i would also score as a 4.

I'm fact I prefer it over the original, because imo the Buddha fits the theme better than the dancer On the new china club.

Most of my scores have been in the 2-4 range. I think I've only given one or two 5s in the whole thing.

It was clever to add the Buddha and make it more personal. I don’t know the back story so can’t add more. What does the new script say? Hope it says Chippy...

It says "Nirvana" in Sanskrit

Yes I realized this after the fact. I feel I was too loose early on, but can't change my scale now as it's only in relation to my previous ratings.

Hindsight is a bit**, we should have had a ton of these together and only presented as inlays. Too many people vote differently based on which chip is shown (if the inlay doesn't vary), etc.

$2500? One is a $25.00 chip for the cash set, the other is for the tournament set
I am aware of that, but the $25.00 to me just looks too much like $2500. (Oh, the "twice" referred to having it twice on the same chip).
