Buy for the chips only!,
This review is from: 500 pc Poker Chip Set Original Royal Crown Design (Misc.)These are great chips. The weight and feeling are better than the quality you find at big box stores. They have the "clay like" clink when you drop them down to raise the bet! The imprint quality is good, not a sticker, aside from the occasional blemish here and there. The chips are the big plus and completely worth it.
Now on to the completely worthless items that were also included:
The Cards: use them to light a camp fire or practice flicking them into the trash. So cheap and flimsy they are unusable.
The Dice: I do not trust them as far as i can roll them... they are too light to be standard dice, but not as worthless as the cards.
The Case: Pretty much what you would expect. Although mine arrived with scratches and a large noticeable dent in the top lid despite being packaged in foam on arriving. Who had the case out and was jumping on it?? everything else came sealed in plastic. The wood felted dividers are a bit flimsy so i will have to take care... Read more
This is a great set, it's HEAVY though,

My husband and I are very casual poker players, but we wanted a set that wasn't cheap plastic and had chips with a nice heft and "clink" to them. These chips really deliver especially for the price. They stack beautifully, they have a good weight to them, and they are very satisfying to play with. I like the fact that there are no denominations on them so we can decide for ourselves what they're worth. The case arrived completely encased within Styrofoam and in great condition.
A few warnings about this set though:
It is HEAVY (like, surprisingly heavy) and definitely not something you can just carry around casually.
It will be interesting to see if the case handle holds up to all that weight -- so far so good.
The locks on the case clasps don't actually lock -- this is not a problem for me, but it might be for you.
The cards are kind of flimsy as others have said -- easy to resolve for us.
All in all, I would highly recommend this set!

Great deal for a good set of chips!,
This review is from: 500 pc Poker Chip Set Original Royal Crown Design (Misc.)The argument could be made that these are not the highest quality chips in the world...and they're not...but they're really, really good for the price and for the person looking to buy a set for home games. If you already have a Nexgen set or some clay chips, then this probably isn't the set for you unless you're just looking for a cheap set for some reason. If, like me, you're looking for a solid set of chips with good weight, that stack well, and that look different than most standard poker chip designs that everyone else is selling, then this set fits the bill. For me, I was looking for a set for home games of 6 to 10 people. I have to add in a few blues from a random assortment of chips to fill the full 10, but that's about it. I do wish that they skipped the black chips and added another 50 blue, but that's not really too big of a deal. I found a few minor things on some of the chips, an injection spot here, a discoloration there, but again for $40 that's to be expected. I... Read more
