TLDR/
My mixed RHC cash set arrived from the US, chips mudered, labels applied, pics below.
Also pics of my EPT Tourney ceramics.


I found my way here after Googling for new cash set options during lockdown.....and my wallet is still upset about the whole thing!
I've upgraded my sets over the years from dice chips through a number of different ceramic options. The latest is an EPT ceramic tourney set which I love, but spent the summer piecing together a mixed cash set using excellent/mint condition RHC chips. I really like minty fresh Paulsons with crisp edges (but I don't have THC money right now!). My local players are mostly tourney guys so I built a micro-stakes set to try and tempt them into cash games.

The original plan was a 300 pc set covering 0.05/0.10 blinds for 6 max home games. The more time I spent on here browsing around, the plan evolved to more chips (I mean, moar chips is better right?). So it is now a 500 pc set which can now eaaaaaasily cope with a 0.25/0.25 game too, which nicely future proofs the local game.

Seeing as fracs are super sought after on here I quickly accepted I would likely end up buying chips I liked and applying my own labels. I spent a fair amount of time over the summer designing my own labels for the $0.05, $0.25 and $20 chips - which are a Rounders, Casino & Ozarks theme respectively. The colours may not all be traditional casino colours, but it's unlikely this set need any higher demons, and my guys only play at home games so don't really know what chip should be what colour.

The $1's are barrels from different Casino's just to add more colour to the set, may not be to everyones taste. This seemed like a good idea as I can extend the set with new barrels over time, and anything I manage to harvest from LV when I get there. Even managed to pick up a near mint barrel of Cinci $1's from @The Chip Exchange, one of the only US casino's I've been into, so cool to have some chips from there.

I've learnt a lot whilst building this set, and had a lot of help from awesome folks on this forum! So some shout outs (there are likely more so apologies!):
@Gear - awesome labels!
@Hammer2171 aka Mr.Scrub Donkey - for making my first purchase on the forum go smoothly, and then selling me the awesome pink fracs (best chip in the set IMO!).
@BonScot & @jr8719 - for help on shipping, and chip choices in my line up. Hopefully we get to the meet-up game in 2021!
@Thisfiendis138 - from initially hooking me up with some pictures of chips to help with dirty stack issues, to selling me the very same chips a few months later! Now a true friend and bro - boy do we talk some BS every damn day! Hopefully we get to grab some beers in the future.

Onto the Pr0n.

100 x Nickels - started life as Terrible 50c St.Jo's, now custom labeled Rounders.

160 x Quarters - Ex Aransas Queen $25s, now labelled as Tangiers.

160 x Mixed $1s - sourced from many helpful members. They are all great but I think the colours on the Dover Downs are awesome!!

60 x Cinci $5s

20 x $20 - The beautiful Native Lights round out the top end of the set, should the game stakes require it over time. These are so pretty!!

I did end up buying a rack of SYs, but saw the error of my ways when hammer came along selling three terribles. So I joined the pink chip gang :wow:

Yessir those pink fracs are as about as sharp as they get. I’m glad they went to a good home and are going to get used instead of sitting in my closet for future plans. I would love to do future meet up in 2021 with all of us. I mentioned to @Ethan and a few other members I would love to play in a game if I end up traveling anywhere next year... maybe even do a Las Vegas meet up next year... I mean my wife and I did get married there last year after 10 years of being together. Beautiful set you put together and glad I was able to help. Truly nothing but amazing people on this forum that I have met. Who knows, maybe @Thisfiendis138 and I can make a trip out of the US to visit, just let me know what preference of liquor, beer, or wine to bring over, I definitely know a lot lot more about alcohol than chippies. Anytime anyone ever makes it Bakersfield, for whatever reason anyone would ever want to come here, lol, you will have a nice house to stay at and hospitality.... my wife is an AMAZING cook, literally can cook an ethnicity food, I don’t know how I got so lucky, and one of the most down to earth nicest people you could meet. I look forward to you chip brahs in the near future. :tup: :cool

Thanks man, really happy with the set!
I'd love to make it to a few meet ups and share a beer with a lot of the folks on here. You guys are welcome here anytime!
I wish I found this forum years ago - for our honeymoon the wife and I drove from San Francisco to Miami Beach. If I'd have known I could've worked in some meet up games and beers with all you guys. Though I highly suspect I would've come home divorced :LOL: :laugh: :LOL: :laugh: We drove down some of PCH1 down to Santa Barbara, so not a million miles from you.
Also hope to make it to LV in the future. I should be in LV right now for a friends wedding, but Covid had other plans. Next time!

Some other random pictures from the photoshoot. Whilst building the set over the summer I purchased a number of decks from @Spinettis Gaming (and a heap of other bits). I picked up some decks based on the chips already in my set, I already have a load of LV decks that we use at home for general card games (not for poker due to the ink spots). The Tangiers Deck is BNIB, so I may use this for ShortDeck at my home games.

Solid work on the labels. The nickels rock.
Thanks Moose - the nickels are the star of the set for sure! I enjoyed working on the labels and designs, the next design work is already in discussion phase :)
Oops, I thought this was the mail pr0n thread, lol
Hah, no worries! I love those chips, almost bought a barrel for the top end of my set here, but went with the NLs in the end.
