    I've seen a few old TRK hotstamped Pan chips on eBay.
    The $2 Outpost Casino chips I now have were used for Pan, according to the old casino owner.
    What's the betting like in this game?
    I read a description here, but I was REALLY confused. (Panguingue)

    Do bets usually use only one denom chip? So you would need A LOT of chips?

    I would love to find a treasure trove of hotstamped solid Pan TRK's out there, and if the betting was in mass quantities of chips, maybe I have a chance.

    I just read the link for Pan. Uh... Maybe it gets easier to understand once you've played it a while, but I got lost in the instructions. I can't imagine playing that after some drinks have been tossed back. :wink:

    maybe that's why the single denom is used for chips.
    It would be a fricking blur for me too.

    Hey, maybe it's like a limit game in terms of betting?

    I don't believe there is betting involved - just payment from other players when a "meld" is made.

    I can see the dissatisfaction of players having $1 and $2 chips. Easier in the game to see spades and pay 2 x $1 instead of figuring which is a $2 chip. The game probably moves very fast.
