I founded the Indie Game Reading Club in 2010. I've written and developed RPGs since the mid-90s, now I mostly talk about playing them.

Ha, actually a boardgame I don’t have. :-/
You have A Study in Emerald. Stop whining! 😉
Their lockable/stackable nature is important for this project I’m messing with.
Argh no Checkers either.
Too trad for Paul
I have a huge honking bucket of dice with Kanji characters, though. And probably close to a thousand meeples. And cubes and discs and metal money and little castles and toy soldiers and glass beads and blank-sided dice and…
How does the man who wrote for that one RPG not have poker chips?! SHAAAAAAAAME.
Oh I used to have them. Part of my astonishment tbh.
Do you have a Cheapass Game sitting on your shelf that could be hiding them?
Just Kill Dr Lucky.
Do you got the time head over to Target or something like that and grab a few sets. I was surprised to find some decent 11.5 gram sets at a Fred Meyer store close by.
Just use real money.
The real money is in the picture, it’s been transmogrified into cardboard.
Foil wrapped after dinner mints? No, you love in a desert, that won’t work.
Tell you what Paul, I’ll trade you a sack of chips for that Study in Emerald game. 😉
Hm, I know my FLGS used to have the cheap little plastic ones that had interlocking stuff. I mean, they were more little plastic discs than actual poker chips but still.
I got a decent set on discount at Tuesday Morning (or Big Lots, maybe). You can get cheap crappy ones at your corner drugstore.
