What kind of cards come in the case?
The kind you'll throw out after a few hands.

1st of all, these are not casino grade, these are made from ABS plastic.. They are heavier than any casino chips, by about 40%. im a chip of a chip snob, if you are looking for a set just to mess around with , for sure these will do, but you plan to run any type of real game, these are not so good, since anyone can goto costco buy some for $20, and then have a few extra chips to break your balance..
What kind of chips would you recommend?
I’m looking to get a nice set for some guys night with the new table I ordered

Saw these in the middle aisles where the toys usually are at Burlington location yesterday. Could of sworn price was between $15 and $20. Do NOT quote me on this since I only glanced. However just posting to let others know these are available at Burlington, ON location.

These are fine. I have 2 x 13.5g sets for my home game and they are what all my friends have.

Dollar Tree sells cards that were used in Vegas casinos for $1.25/deck. They are usually in a box near the cash. Obviously they will be great for your home game.

worst timing ever...I just got a cheap set of chips for the kids to use from amazon.

They were only $12, but only 100 chips too.

standard clay chips are 10g, so these are heavier than anything at the casino.. Back in the 2000's when the market for these came out, it was americanized to heavier = better.. Somehow 13.5g's became the standard. I wanted a nice set, so i found this site called CHiptalk.net. it had all the info i needed on buying a real set.. Be warned, they are FKN expensive. For a good set, you are looking at about $1/chip... I think thats what i paid, ( only after upgrading my shitty set 4x) but like any collectable these have increased in value to about $4/chip.. I know ill be selling mine soon. Since i never use mine.. I dont see them getting much higher..

heres a sample of my chipsHERE is the link
Excuse my ignorance but what's the point of spending $4/chip when this deal is perfectly decent enough to play amongst friends. Unless you're running an illegal basement casino why would it matter the quality of the chips if they are ultimately a temporary alternative to cash for the purpose of playing. The chips have no real value outside the game.

If anyone is looking for a good set of cards to play with I suggest you check out the Bicycle Prestige plastic cards. I've been using them for some time and they don't bend or fade. I peel my cards a lot when playing poker to the point all my friends were annoyed that we went through so many decks. Since I've bought these we have not replaced them for a couple years. They go for about $14.

i guess its to say the same about spending $4 on bottle of wine and $400? I dont recommend it.. Its more a hobbyist thing. Theres nothing wrong with using this at your game, the chip guys just have a sense of appreciation for a nice chip. Its kinda funny because ill play with mine and people will have no clue that they are even Fancy/nicer at all. Ironically in my game, 5c chips are worth over a buck, my 1$ chips are about $4 and the 25c , $5 and the rest are worth about 3-4.50 chip.. USD as well.

that's what I figured. no way a full set of clay chips cost 20 bucks. .


Yeah clay advertised chips are usually 100% plastic.. I had a guy try to tell me they were clay. so i asked him to hold a lighter up to it and see what happened.. From what i recall there are no more clay manufacturers making chips for the home market.. Paulson stopped a few years ago.. Theres still a few that will do custom orders.. but thats a different story... China makes a nice clay "compositte" being its still plastic, but instead of molded, they are compressed like a true chip.. I have a set, (the WSOP) knock offs "china clays" still pretty rad for the price we got them for.. i htink 33c/chip..
