    On January 1st, 2005 Greg (Tenpercenter) announced on the 2 + 2 Forum<a target="_blank" href="http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1463514"> (which is down at this time)</a> and also on Texas-Holdem Poker.com<a target="_blank" href="http://www.texasholdem-poker.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=50852"> (see it here)</a> of his desire to share his personal set of custom Chipco chips, The Egyptians with members of the chip community. Greg and Holdem Poker Chips put together a Group Buy (only the second one ever done) at a special pricing and the rest is history! The Egyptians have become the most popular Chipco chip for the home gaming market. It is safe to say that over the last 7+ years the sales have been well into six figures for these chips.

    The Egyptians chips were a groundbreaking set. They offered the first non 39mm chips to the home market. An Octagon $1000 chip and a $5000 plaque. This set opened up peoples minds that you could have more than plain chips in your home game and they all did not have to be round. Now look where we are today!

    As a celebraton of this great set and an introduction for those of you who were not around pre-Chiptalk (is there anyone left?), Tenpercenter and Holdem Poker Chips have gotten together to offer an insane deal.

    The Catch......This is a Re-Group Buy (Pre Sell) of an existing set. To be able to offer these amazing prices, everyone must give up something, Tenpercenter and HPC have to make this offer, and all we ask is you be willing to pre pay for your order prior to production.

    So, no more Fanfare, Here are the specifics
    What: The Egyptians Re-Group Buy
    When: Ordering open May 7th, 2012 to May 28th, 2012
    Order placed with Chipco: June 1st, 2012
    Expected delivery to HPC June 18th, 2012

    Items Offered:
    The Egyptians 39mm Round Site Price = 90¢, Sale Price = 72¢
    The Egyptians Octagons Site Price = $2.50, Sale Price = $2.00
    The Egyptians T Mold Hotstamped Ankh Site Price = 80¢, Sale Price = 64¢ (Any color, any quantity)
    The Egyptian Marker/Medallions Site Price $10.00, Sale Price = $8.00

    The standard shipping rules apply. Shipping is not discounted

    This is a 20% discount over our site pricing and an even lower price than the original Group Buy in 2005!

    Use coupon code ANKH at checkout to receive this pricing before Midnight on May 28th

    Oh Yeah, Medallions! We have not even introduced them yet. Well here they are. They are &quot;Proof Struck&quot; coins that are done from the same dies as original solid Gold and Silver ones were, but done with non precious metals to make them affordable for more things than a fancy card cap. Give them out as tourny prizes (we still have the gift boxes for them available), use them for bounty chips, and of course a marker.

    All Three are 39mm
    The Gold Medallion is done in 'Merlin Gold" (a brass alloy)
    The Silver Medallion is done in Nickel (a nickel alloy)
    The Bronze Medallion is done in Copper
    Each comes polished and in an Ait-tite, display box is optional

    If you have any comments or questions, please leave them here in this forum for me.

    This is awesome! And having the $1000s and $5000s with 39mm and octagon options is fantastic!

    - Can you explain more about and provide pictures of the T-mold Ankhs?

    - What is the octagonal shown with the question mark?

    Thanks for doing this! I still think these Egyptians are, top to bottom, the nicest ceramics ever made.

    We are waiving any qty/color requirements on these. You could in effect make a non denom set of them at 64c ea

    Mystery Chip is just that, something we are working on. Will be released in the future

    Soooooooo glad that I've held on to this set. It's by far my largest and is one of my most beautiful. I'm going to add to it--just have to take stock.

    THanks, Michael. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Question: Any minimums for orders?

    Any chance that mystery chip will be a $25,000 chip? I always wanted a high denom set of these.

    Very, very nice, Michael. The Egyptians have always been one of my favorite ceramic sets. The $5000 chips were used with a friend's original Pharaoh's Club set for a long time, prior to the Pharaoh's Club plaques being introduced, and the $5 chip was used as a bounty chip with that same tourney set. And I've awarded the silver version of the medallion to our league champion on several occasions. All very classy stuff, and at 72c for genuine Chipco's, an incredible deal.

    With no quantity restrictions and the discounted pricing, those T-mold "Ankh" hot-stamps would make excellent roulette chips for some of the folks around here who run casino-night events, in addition to being used as a no-denom cash (or tourney) set.

    Looking forward to checking out the new-material medallions and the unveiling of your mystery octagon.

    Awesome! Those $1k/$5k Octagons, Hotstamped Ankh T-Molds and Medallions are also great additions to any China Clay or Paulson Pharaoh's set and I'll definitely pick up some of these! Sale prices are unbeatable too!:)

    Btw, saw that you introduced the "claypokerchips.org certified" seal on your web page. However this seal should always be associated with a specific set of chips. Showing it on the main page only or permanently displaying it in a sidebar may be more confusing than informing to an uninformed customer ...

    When will the mystery octagon be revealed? And can it be pre-ordered?

    I forgot to thank Greg when I thanked Michael--Thanks Greg!

    Michael, is the " ? " chip going to be a " ? " (like a "show'em" chip), or is it a mystery denomination? Thanks.

    The "?" Chip, or Mystery chip is in development. That is a place holder
    for it for future use. It will not be available for the special, but hope to
    release it soon after if all goes as planned.
