European Rectangular Poker Chips

rectangular_poker_chips.jpgWait a minute, what? Rectangular poker chips? No red-blooded American would be caught dead play poker with rectangular chips, right? Well, let's just think about this for a moment. One, if they're rectangular they won't roll away. You can also stack them up and play Jenga with them, which would be exceedingly difficult if they were round. Lastly, as you sit in your stinky basement you can pretend you're playing Baccarat with James Bond instead of Hold 'Em with your friends from college. How can you go wrong really?

Modern Clay Poker Chips - Cool Poker Chips

modern-clay-poker-chips-big.jpg

These modern clay poker chips are getting rave reviews. We like the Caesar's touch.

I've just recieved my a sample set from sidepot, i really like the look and feel of these chips. they are much easier to read than the inplay. however, when i showed them to a friend he thought they felt too light. i said he was crazy and too used to playing with the "real" chip weight (11.5). well he was right ...sort of, we happened to have a digi scale on hand and...drumroll please...only 8.2 thru 8.5 grams! the inplay were slighty heavier at 8.8 thru 9, and the archetype were bang on 10g. i still think they are really nice but i do question the weight...bty i also had a dollar chip from the "exalibur" casino, weighed close to 10g. it too is a clay chip. overall, very nice chip

CombatBet.com Custom Military Chips

CombatBet Custom Chips

In this day and age, we should always remember to take some time and thank those who serve or have served on our behalf. All those to take up duties to help protect and serve our society are a special breed, and now you can recognize that with their very own poker chip.

We were sent some chips from CombatBet.com to play with and to review. How did they hold up?

Well to begin with, these chips have some nice heft to them. They have a nice topcoat that provides some grip to them when you hold them, and they had no problem holding up the abuse our players could throw at them.

Whats special about these chips however, is that they are custom made to show off the logo of any unit you like. The art sample we were provided was extremely varied, and had excellent detail on the chips themselves. They even went so far as to perform some nice custom text printing along the sides to add that little bit extra.

The custom image appears to be placed on the chip via some kind of heat transfer. This provides great detail and color, and gives that grip on the chip.

All in all, they were beautiful. Though we recommend a base color other than black, as the contrast tended to call out the texture more than other colors.

If you are looking for a way to recognize your unit, or the unit of a loved one, head on over to CombatBet.com and take a look at their work. We think you'll be pleased with what you find.

RFID in your Poker Chips?

It seems that the marriage of poker and technology never ceases. As casinos work to track transactions, and combat fraud, The Las Vegas Review-Journal has word of how Shuffle Master has acquired the patent for using RFID technology inside poker chips. Very interesting news indeed.
