    I noticed the CPS chips have pretty noticeable edge beveling. I wonder if that was a design decision, made specifically to minimize the flea bites (which seems to be more prevalent on the "squared" chips)?

    :huh:

    good information and fairly accurate. there are FEW chip makers left in China PERIOD- this includes abs chip makers. when the craze subsided so did the chip makers- my partner was in china overseeing a large project we did for a usa video game manufacturer and stopped by one chip maker we knew and had used- and they were making mops- not one injection molding machine for chips remained. MANY chinese advertised chip manufacturers are NOT manufacturers- the chip manufacturers dont advertise because they dont speak english and prefer to deal with chinese marketing/trade companies as the go- between. we use three manufacturers for chips- and we know all three personally- to the point where they have been to our homes- and we have been to their homes overseas. this bond is what gets things done correctly MOST times- things do happen but for the most part- its worked out for many years.

    So does anyone know of a source of purple blank chips from this set with inventory left? I'm having custom stickers made to add some denominations to my Pyramids set and would love 100 -200 more purples.
