If you're going to replace paper money with poker chips, how many chips do you need and in how many denominations?

For base income you need chips for each player to represent any amount from 25 to 1 (M)$. So you could e.g. go with

- 1x 10$
- 2x 5$
- 2x 2$
- 1x 1$

per player. You also need money for sample rewards which come as 25 and 50$ (if I am not mistaken). The problem is that the normal game allows for making infinite money via samples (which afaik should be fixed in the future), so theoretically you would need an infinite amount of chips. However you can use house rules, and in a 'normal' game you will likely never need more than 50 additional $. You could provide them via additional 2x 25 or any more fine separation.

Under the current rules you can only turn in samples at the start of the year, so there's no longer any possibility of getting infinite money from the moon.
