Looks like a nice case, but has no carry handle.

And 200 chips is barely enough for 4 people for a decent game. For a real game with 8 to 10 people, you should probably have about 600 to 800 chips, with a larger number of the 2nd denomination (usually red, at least in all the $2/$5 Texas Hold'Em games I've been to). Your mileage may vary.

There aren't enough chips they said, well for a little naughty-time game there can never be too little chips!

"Professional weight" WHAT? Are they plastic with inlays? If they were clay (yeah, right) this would be an awesome deal. I have some professional weight plastic chips that are just crap. Heavy, nicely weighted, CRAP.

There's something about having poker chips that completely legitimizes your card game. It wouldn't matter if you were playing go fish, as long as your using chips it looks cool. Cigars are another thing that makes playing cards look substantially more cool... Those combined with whiskey glasses full of apple juice that would be an adorable picture of the 5 year olds, except maybe candy cigarettes instead of cigars

Woot won't let me have a cool signature

Woot, where is your Christmas spirit? These were for sale at sport woot on 10/24 for $29.99. In fact I purchased two at that price on that day. Why the increase just before Christmas?

On the up side for those that have not seen these, they look so much better than the picture. I would buy again for a gift but why would I do that now and pay more for it than I did just a few weeks ago? However, even at this price, it is a very nice set.

If you know a poker player that you need to buy a gift for, then you probably don't like them very much anyway. Buy them this set - they will hate it. Anyone hosting a real poker game wants a higher quality chip with the amounts printed on them, more chips, and/or only the correct colored chips (green for 25, black for 100, etc). There are some redeeming qualities, as I suppose the red and white chips are good for playing tiddlywinks and the entire set can be sold in a yard sale next year for $5!

Are these part of the Motor playing cards with excessive formaldihyde content- a carcinogen?
There was a major issue from the china manufacturer

Got these last time they were on sale. Great set but not enough chips. I was a little disappointed when I saw a chip set at Wal*Mart with slightly the same quality chips for $30.00 that included white chips as well and seemingly more of each. HOWEVER, this set is awesome. I'd recommend getting 2 for any games with more than 4 people.

Anyone know if the chips are plastic or clay?

These ARE plastic with a metal insert (that you don't see). I've had these chips for ~6 years. They are no where NEAR clay chips but they are decent chips and more than enough for almost any home game. But this offer seems off. Not enough chips, too much, etc.

There are plenty of chips and if it doesn't seem like enough then BUY ANOTHER SET! The price is certainly right! I bought a set a few months ago and love the quality. The box alone is worth what I paid.

Amazon to Collect Sales Tax from Massachusetts Residents. Which means Woot will also I assume.
Under the agreement, Amazon will start collecting the Massachusetts sales taxes on Nov. 1, 2013.

Plastic, my friend bought the same set from Amazon. Chips are not so heavy but are not too light too. For the price its a great set

Do I move or just not check Woot every day. I have a year to think about it

I have some experience running regular home games multiple times per week, using a variety of chips and types of decks.

If you're looking to have home games of more than 3-4 people you definitely will need more chips. The chips themselves are decent enough quality, although I prefer the 11.5 gram "dice" composite chips that you see in similar sets to this.

The problem here is twofold. The biggest being the distribution of colors. Everybody likes playing with a decent number of chips in front of them, no matter what the stakes are. Its no fun when the white chip is your minimum denomination and there's only 50 of them to go around. Suffice that 50 of each means not enough nickels, and too many $5 chips (substitute your own stakes based on testicular fortitude).

What you really want per player are about 20 small denomination chips , 10 medium, and 5 high value chips, plus some super high value chips for when more money gets injected to the game and you need to consolidate. Don't forget you'll also need some extras of each color to make change and add to the game as need be. For small home games, a 300 chip set with an uneven color balance will work (100 white, 100 red, 50 green, 25 blue, 25 black) works a lot better.

In addition, those decks are going to be poor quality paper cards that easily crease and wear. If you just want something for when relatives come over to kill time, fine. If you want to host games and play even semi seriously, you're better off with a $30 set of plastic casino quality cards (washable, won't crease, untearable) and 300-1,000 chips of whatever kind you like. I would research wholesalers and buy my chips by themselves at a bulk rate. I don't need a silly case.

I agree with you on all points except for the cards. I have and will continue to prefer the feel and performance of good stock paper cards. If many games are being played the cost of changing out decks of good stock cards is certainly negligible to the cost of being in the game. I prefer and buy bicycle brand by the case of 10 decks, 5 cases at a time. I guess it is a matter of personal preference though.

@WOOT Come to think of it, WOOT, you should put up cases of bicycle brand playing cards at a good price.
