For those of you who own, or are considering buying GameChips, I wanted to share some exciting news. I’m in the process of making a few design revisions to the GameChips product. Here are some specifics about the changes being made: The 5/10/20 chips will have a redesigned rolling edge. While many customers like the current design, some customers mentioned that the gradient design on the edge makes them sad. The revised design will feature a more coin-like appearance. The edge will now have a pattern that will look like the ridges on the edge of a quarter. It will be uniform with no gradient. The face design will be unchanged. A new set of designs for the 25/50/100 chips will be made available. The new design is intended to look like paper currency. The colors will remain similar (green/blue/black respectively). Although I do like the gem design, I felt that their were too many gem designs in the set. Now the set will be a more balanced mix of designs. I realize that by making some changes you might have a few questions. Here are some answers to the questions I’m anticipating that you might have. When will images of the new designs be made available? Images from the prototypes are attached to this post. When will the new chip designs be available for purchase at the GameKnightStore.com? Likely to be February-March timeframe. These chips will also be available to some reward levels in the new Kickstarter project. Can I

Follow the link to find out all about this great new accessory for board gamers. My project is to create GameChips, a customized set of poker chips to meet the needs of board gamers. Many board games use some form of game currency. The problem is that currency components included with games range from ok to terrible with some rare exceptions. Here’s some of the in-box components: Cardboard tokens: Usually you need to punch these out yourself. They get worn out pretty fast, and sometimes they get torn when you are trying to punch them. Paper money: This is probably the worst type of game currency. It rips, tears, and creases. Try taking a game to the beach and watch it fly around. Plastic chips: A little better than paper or cardboard, but these are often very thin and difficult to stack or pick up. Metal coins: Usually these don’t work that well because they are too small to stack. Most don’t have a denomination printed on them. Poker players and casinos found the right solution. They realized that the best replacement for currency is the poker chip. Not only are poker chips fun to handle, but they
