So far there's no place that carries these ones as they seem to be discontinued because of the blemishes.

I got mine by subscribing to the thread and seeing a post by George that there was a set on eBay. I received them a few days later and am loving them.

I've been keeping an eye on eBay so I can return the favor by posting here if I see one.

P.S. Big fan of the show!

Did people just discover this thread now, or were you lollygagging? I was actually surprised they maintained stock as long as they did. So I only have sympathy for the people who are discovering the thread late. meeple

Spare a thought for those of us in the EU; if there was ever a reasonably-priced source for these chips (once shipping and taxes were factored in) I'm not aware of it

Okay, so this is an old thread, but I have to ask if anyone knows where they can find chips like this anywhere?

Funny enough, this thread is what comes up when you Google mini poker chips, and the OP link is dead -- even the site doesn't seem to have anything on there. As I Google around, I can't seem to find anything apart from MeepleSource, but I like the look of the OP ones.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Before posting, you might consider actually reading the thread first. shake

My post, which is only 4 before yours, and another user's, provide a lot of info and a lot of links. whistle

Read through this thread and checked all the links. DiscountPoker, rakuten, sketchy gamechip link, all the ebay links.

Seems there are simply no more of these around.

So...is there anyone/anywhere that provides this set now?

These look to be the same chips:
https://www.bestpokerstuff.com/products/sku/CS300CWSOPMINI

Chuff-all use to me, because like most of the previous places with the chips, they don't ship internationally.

For future googling purposes: the set at that link is the WSOP "Mini Travel Poker Set", by Excalibur Electronics.

Several permutations of those search terms will get you links to other places on the web where this is mentioned, but none of them current.

That BestPokerStuff link is throwing a certificate error in my phone's Chrome browser (invalid authority or something). It could be a man-in-the-middle attack, or it could be a really bad self-signed cert. Tread cautiously.

I can't tell from the small picture whether it's the same set or not. The picture is too small. But it indeed looks like it could be. But there are other similarly-sized sets that are not the same. Someone wanna be the guinea pig and report back?

It's not the same set. The "grail" chips come in white, red, green, blue and black without denominations stated on them. These may be comparable, though.

Yup, you are correct. I looked too quickly.

Maybe. Although not having green would be annoying.

A search on other sites finds they are plastic chips.

Yep, came to the same conclusion. Different set--all plastic.

Don't suppose we could get the casino industry to change their sizes...

I don't mean to irritate the people that can't find these, but I use these constantly. Easily half our games get chips added, and they're as much a staple in our group as the dice towers or dice trays.

Pete (hopes you guys can get some)

I could easily see grabbing two more of them. I'm currently using them as activation tokens for Imperial Assault since I can use a red, black, and white chip for each of the three cards for Stormtroppers, etc.
