Argh, you can only buy 1, not up to 3 to help split the shipping costs ... bummer, would have grouped a purchase of 2 with a friend to bring down the cost.

Looks like a terrific deal to me. I've been wanting to upgrade from my 8gram chips for awhile now. This gives me the perfect opportunity to do so.

I expect to be very happy with my purchase. I just hope this is the English version.

my stepfather actually got a set that looks nearly identical to this one for christmas last year and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't the exact same model.

Its a very nice set (my stepfathers, and I'm assuming this one too) The chips are not plastic but very high quality and the thing is HEAVY, nearly twenty pounds. If its the same one, I'd highly recommend, and am strongly considering getting a set just for myself.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see anything anywhere indicating that the chips are 11.5 grams. Can someone tell me where 11.5g is stated?

On the Features page (click link just above text), it calls out 11.5 g.

If you click on "features" it says "Each chip weighs 11.5 grams."

All right! My first Tanga purchase. Just last week in a game of Power Grid we were talking about how much better it would be to use poker chips instead of money. I did a quick price check, found that this was about 1/2 the best price I could turn up elswhere.

My first tanga purchase as well! My husband and I were thinking about getting a set on Amazon (almost the same exact amount too!), but the shipping cost was really off putting. It's a steal to buy it off of Tanga. Hooray!

LOL. No way could I give German poker chips as gifts.

Big 5 or many of your other big retail stores are selling comparable sets for about the same price including tax.

So, it's not a horrible deal!!

The set NEVER sold for the retail price. I can vouch for that! Chip set prices have dropped dramatically since Moneymaker won the 2003 WSOP Main Event.

Search "deluxe 500 piece poker game set" on froogle.com if you're curious about how this compares with other e-tailers selling the same set.

Just found a set like this on clearance at a K-Mart for $12. Whoo! I didn't NEED chips, as I really like the Michael Graves sets that I have.
