    I think the other version of the river queen with the steamboat would be awesome.

    I also voted for the river queen. There's a simple elegance to that design that I like.

    Voted Circus Maximus. Pretty much sums up my weekly game.

    Kings Crown is way overdone and The River Queen needs the Boat IMO.

    I agree.

    This design came after speaking with the die maker.
    Because the design space is only 7/8", I'd need to have a custom die for every denomination. Custom dies run $120 each. With the simplified version, he can make a die with interchangeable numbers for $120 plus $10 for each value.

    Voted Riverboat design, also think added stylized steam boat image would be better.
    ...Just found out that Circus Maximus gambling tokens actually were made more than two thousand years ago:)

    ^This. The crown in king's crown may loose some detail in the hotstamping. A river boat if done right would look super cool.

    The die maker approved the River Queen design with the smoke stacks.
    The dies will be ordered tomorrow.

    Very very nice classy design.
    at the same time connects to the "shady" origins of poker, riverboat gamblers

    If the additional 10$ are paid by the buyer can we get higher denoms than the 500 or is there not enough space?

    btw: Samples arrived today. thanks!

    This is now the 2nd request for higher values. Let me check with the designer and die maker and get back to you.

    I'm considering adding in $1000 if it fits in the design space.

    Are there any other higher values you'd like me to consider?

    for me a 1000 chip would be the highest denom maybe not for the others.
    honestly I am not yet sure if I tend towards a cash or tourney set. It was rather a general question as for people looking for a tourney sets also the lack of a 25 value chip for example would be a pity. If the buyer would pay the additional fee (or split between the buyers) could other values be considered ie 50c 10$ 25$ etc.

    For me T25 to T1000 would be enough.
    I hope to get a solid tourney set as well as a spotted cash set.
