Don’t get me wrong, I love roll the dice games like Candy Land, but for some reason it just doesn’t have the same allure it once did when I was 6.
Maybe it’s the fact that I know if I continue on in Candy Land, I’m not headed to Candy Castle, just a sugar crash landing! After years of passing by the poker tables as a innocent bystander, I wanted to play my own hand.
What makes Poker so fun? A weekly tradition for so many? Within 20 minutes of crashing “boys night,” I was hooked. It’s WAY more complex than rolling the dice and leaving your fate in Lady Luck’s fickle hands; poker is a psychological and intellectual game within a card game!
Poker is actually more like many games in one. It’s not just about the cards you’re dealt, the hands you play, the bets you place, or even the other player at the table. It’s a delicate balance of all of these aspects that keeps it so exciting – and keeps people coming back for more.
You might have noticed that we just recently upgraded our poker chips. In addition to upping the ante on new durable material, we’ve made them even more affordable so you can save your cheddar for the pot. Talk about a win-win situation! These new chips are made with clay, the most popular type of poker chip material. Many poker players actually claim that clay poker chips feel and handle better than plastic, ceramic or metal poker chips. They are available with a solid or striped edge, and in 12 exciting colors. Customized poker chips make the game so much more personal!
The best part? You don’t even need to play a hand to enjoy these cool chips! We’ve seen lots of innovative designers and customers thinking past the poker table and coming up with all sorts of neat uses for these chips. Many are using these these customized poker chips as golf markers: the perfect placeholder so you don’t lose your spot if an old buddy is close by. With custom names, dates, and events, these also make memorable wedding and party favors. We’ve even seen them used as drink tokens!
