    Would the following breakdown be viable for a small home micro-cash game?

    75x .05
    150x .25
    50x $1
    25x $5

    Looks good for up to 7 players. I generally want enough small blind chips such that everyone has 12... 8 min.

    Are you ever going to have more than $200 on the table? That bank doesn't even get you $30 per player, and generally you want to have a good bit of head room. I might try to get that to $400 or so if possible.

    I'm trying to work on a similar set, with this ideal breakdown (still trying to get all the chips):
    100 x .05
    100 x .25
    160 x 1
    20 x 10
    20 x 20

    The primary intent for this set is such that it would be used for something like a .05/.10 NL game or a friendly Dealer's Choice circus game and for those games I think the set would work just fine. It could be used for a small table of .10/.25, but I agree - that's a tight fit with a low ceiling.

    Even at .05/.10 NL I think $20 buy-ins are a good possibility, right? 2 per player puts you over.

    I suppose it's fair to assume that some folks run their games with 200 BB buy-ins.

    Hmmm...let's approach this from a different angle. You have a 300pc set to make. Three denoms, four max - but if you use a fourth you can have no more than 25 chips of the fourth denom.

    How do you build it?

    You could let $20 bills play if the game gets big, although I personally am not comfortable with cash on the table. Sometimes it's a choice between that and more chips.

    Assuming 8 players max (NL holdem 200BB buy-in)... and I broke your rules, but here is what I would recommend.
    80x $0.05
    100x $0.25
    80x $1
    40x $5
    10x $20 plaques (or cash)

    If 301 chips is OK (Edit: get 1 less $20)

    5cx80 25cx60 $1x141 $20x20
    Bank $560

    $20 Starting Stacks
    7 Players 5cx10 25cx6 $1x18
    8th Player 5cx10 25cx18 $1x15

    This leaves $20x20 for rebuys

    Doesn't fit. That 25 limit on the 4th denom is entirely non-negotiable.

    Doesn't fit. Both the 4 denom limit, and the 25 max on the fourth denom are non-negotiable.

    80x $.05
    100x $0.25
    100x $1
    20x $10

    $329 total bank. What is your typical buy-in? How many players?

    If the buy-in is 200bb ($10), the starting stack would be:
    10x $.05
    10x $0.25
    7x $1

    This could support 10 players with an average of 8 nickels per player.

    The tens are just used only for rebuys... and you still have a ton of ones for the first couple rebuys.

    I didn't pick up any E&C's, but I did pick up a large lot of LGK's that I'll be keeping some and selling the rest at low cost. I'll be keeping 300, and I'd like to piece together a set of 300 to sell as a whole, if possible - and it may not be.

    I like the direction of these two ideas. I'm not dead set on anything at the moment, and I may just sell at like $6/barrel or $28/rack.

    That explains the 25 chip max for the large denom requirement. Using a $10 max chip instead of a $20 seems more appropriate for this set because a $20 chip is 400bb... that's a big rebuy.

    i would leave out the $25 chip and go with these denominations:
    .10 (starting stack)
    .50 (starting stack)
    2.00 (starting stack)
    10.00 (as many as you think you will need for rebuys)

    you can play .10/.10 or .10/.20 and hope it plays like a 1/1 or 1/2

    75 - $.05
    75 - $.25
    75 - $1
    50 - $5

    Just a thought..

    Allows 8 players to have at least 8 of each denom...

    Gives you ~$350 total bank
