Anyone aware of a design for deck of money cards to replace paper money? Preferably an Artscow, DriveThruCards or similar print-on-demand design.

There's a few for other games. This is for Merchants of Venus print and play.

If you scour the main list you will likely find other money/card options but it's a big list of links.

Also found this which has poker chip cards.

Why everyone wouldn't use poker chips is beyond me.

I want an alternative to poker chips that will be much more portable.

I liked that options posted, especially that posted by schattentanz, though i will likely modify the card mix.

How portable? About the only scenario I could imagine using cards instead of chips is taking them on a backpacking trip. Mini poker chips, in particular, are quite compact.

I have a small case that holds a number of ultra small games and multi-use cards. I have room in that case for about 160 cards. No reasonable number of mini poker chips would fit in that 2.25w x 3.25l x 2.5d inch space. Backpacking is not the goal, but i want something I can leave in the case, as that case will fit in a slot in my car door.

The design may limit its uses, but Daniel Solis created a deck of "Bird Bucks" which is available through DriveThruCards: http://www.drivethrucards.com/product/128925/Bird-Bucks

If money is hidden a deck of money cards would be a lot easier to hide.

I can't think of any game that I wouldn't prefer to play with open money.

Yet another good reason for poker chips.

Container is maybe the one exception. The money cards make the blind bidding easier.

I don't find that hard with poker chips. One hand has the bid and the other hand has a handful of other chips from your supply.

Power Grid and St. Petersburg. Some of the tension is trying to figure out how much your opponents can afford to spent.

Money is perfectly trackable in both games. There is no need for any tension.

Well, sometimes tension in games is desirable. That said, I also prefer to play with open information whenever possible. I've even tried to add completely open information to games that weren't quite working for me (e.g. T&E) with varying success.

I really enjoy that set and use it for a couple of games, but it's somewhat limited in its generality. I believe it's composed of values 0-9, five of each.

Maybe there are different types of tension, at least as different people here use the term. I don't consider trying to remember how much money people have as tension, certainly not the 'good' kind. That's tedium. If someone demanded to play with hidden money, I'd just use a notepad to track it.

JC - you always have a chorus; its just that usually we are nodding in agreement rather than singing out loud whistle
