I'm looking for transparent bingo chips to use with Attika to mark built buildings. I've found plenty of places online to buy them, but I don't need very many so shipping makes it not worth it. What kind of store would sell these in smallish quantities? Thanks.

teacher supply stores.
you will also find many dice, money, markers, and shapes for game pimping!
They have a die that is one of my faves. it's a clear die with a smaller die inside it. So you roll it and it shows you two numbers. awesome.

I have a similar request but I'm looking for clear transparent bingo chips or plastic circles (without a trace of color). Anyone seen anything like this?

But unfortunately there's a flaw in your suggestion. mb
I did buy some clear discs that your supposed to put under your computer or such to keep things from sliding but they were to flubbery.

How many do you need? You can buy clear styrene at hobby stores and cut it with scissors. I will look at the teacher store when I go next time. Seems like there might be something somewhere at michaels like this. Something like clock face discs or something.

Thanks, I've seen the styrene but it's too thin. I actually need 224 chips & potentially 108 more. They're for my Piecepack redesign. I did settle on using metal rimmed bingo chips but would still like to find some clear ones. The last time I was in Vancouver I did check 2 Michael's stores but found nothing. I've been trying to find some online but have had no luck there either.

Would poker chip spacers work?

Wow I've never even heard of these, they are certainly cheap but unfortunately they won't work as they're too big. The absolute largest size for a piecepack coin is 1", any larger & the coins will overlap. I do have to buy some of these for my other PnP projects though. Thank you for the suggestion.

Cool -- Glad you've got a use for them, even if they don't work for Piecepack.

I use them as miniature bases, myself. Bingo chips work for that, too, but they're really thin -- and for some things, the larger size (1.25" across, I think) of the poker chips spacers is an advantage.
