The Pharaoh's Club poker chip line came to an end in July 2009 when the
original Paulson version was discontinued. Pharaoh's Club chips are one
of the most successful and widely known lines of fantasy casino chips
ever. In order to keep the Pharaoh's Club chips in reach of
the average home
player we chose to build the new Pharaoh's Club clay chip line.
The new poker chip continues to be produced as true compression molded
clay. Now the Pharaoh's Club will have a unique custom mold and larger
inlays (something we always wanted in the "perfect world").

I haven't been on much anymore due to family and work, but I still wanted to share. My father-in-law passed away early this morning.

He was transferred to a rehab facility last week,... [Read More]
So I am looking into commemorative chips for The Shootout at the Post II next year and contacted CPC.

Now I can split that order up and get a portion of them as commemoratives and the rest as something else but this will definitely put a kink in future commemorative orders as I don't necessarily need or want to pay for 300 chips every year.
Does anyone have any creative ideas? I had... [Read More]
Our past three calendars have featured scans of individual chips below the fold. I've really enjoyed seeing all the chips that have graced these calendars and want to thank everybody who participated.
Unfortunately, because of an RSI to my right forearm (not carpal tunnel but similar), I won't be able to process the images for the 2015 calendar. I'm hoping that one of our members will be willing to take on this task.
Using Photoshop Elements, I adjusted the color, brightness, and contrast of the provided scans as... [Read More]
