Woolworths has a half price sale on poker chips that seem to be of good quality, so I thought I'd share the info. I picked up a set of 200 chips, felt mat, deck of cards and dealer button for £7.49. The chips I got are numbered in the following denominations:

60 * 1
60 * 5
40 * 10
40 * 100

The only potential problem I found was that the dark blue and black colour of the 10 and 100 chips is very similar, but as the denomination is printed on the chip I don't imagine that is much of a problem.

Can't wait to try them out with PG or Imperial.

I think I'll grab some of them, as the ones I already have dont have any values printed on them.

Thanks for this. What weight are the chips? And are they shiny or matte?

I picked up a set of these in October as my dedicated poker chips are a pain to carry to a gaming session.

As poker chips they are crap. There's no weight to them and feel like cheap plastic (wait... they are...).

But they are decent for gaming purposes and are light enough to add to my gaming bag.

At home though, I still prefer to use my proper chip-set.

The chips are 4g each, the box says 'clay feel' but I guess they really are plastic. They are more shiny than matte (but not very much so), and to be honest they perhaps don't feel quite as nice as my mates 'proper' chips, but for the price they are still good value for board gaming (and they feel much better than the chips in my copy of Modern Art ).

I got my set in St Albans by the way, they had them in two different sections in the shop.
