Looks like the same colors to me at least by the pictures. Would be surprised if they went through another round of trial and error so soon.

Was the magic feel of the Royals just that they’re 39mm? Aka Do they feel more like royals or majestics?
To me, more like Majestics than Royals. I think it comes down to the amount of chip surface contact. Science.

New Jersey is on lockdown, so skip me please. Is there a way to go back and edit or delete my original message?
When you’re on lockdown, are you getting mail? Guessing no by your response but wanted to double check. Stay safe!

Sorry, didn't think for a second there. Governor Cuomo is right: words matter. We are being ordered to not leave our homes unless absolutely necessary.

I, personally, am including getting and sending of non-essential items in the mail to our family's current self quarantine. No need to put them or the family of others at risk, regardless of how slight that risk may be.

Hopefully I'll catch up with those chips after all this blows over!

Chips are here. Seriously love the colors. Big thanks to @markleteenie for the sweet single too. My singles box is small, but digging something up to toss in for @ekricket next :tup:

Thanks for sending the sample, it was quite interesting. It's off to @JeepologyOffroad later today!

The new chips have a matte edge, just like the Royals. My Majestics have a glossy/shiny edge (not sure how old that sample is). I like the matte edge better.
There is a bevel to the edge, but I would say all three of these samples have a flat edge with a bevel.
They feel similar to the Majestics in terms of stack slipperiness, but I would give the edge to the Banks as slightly more grippy.
I like the new edge spots and the mold is cool too.

Also to note, the sample has no labels.

@Josh Kifer - Happy?!?

I wouldn’t use these for poker or any other game where you might want to stack chips. Very slippery.
The colors are vibrant and eye catching for sure, for board game use I think these would be great. Maybe 3D print a small holder for each player to hold their coins.
The track mold was very subtle, you can tell there is something there but it doesn’t scream train track.
Quality seemed great, the material itself is not clay feeling to me, it almost had a polished injection mold feel, like a higher end super diamond chip might feel if there was such a thing.

I don’t know what I typed before (drinking maybe), and if he didn’t get them he never notified me

It looks like you just mistyped one number at the end, 46 instead of the correct 36. With the correct tracking number it shows as delivered on April 13.[/QUOTE]

Yes, if you like I can send you artwork file

I don’t have any plans to do a custom set any time soon, but I may take you up on that offer when I do! I live near train tracks so there’s a nice connection that way.

Thanks man!

He hasn’t responded to me on Twitter. I’ve sent another message through the 18xx channel.
