i thought maybe 16 as they cant buy matches to bet with
looks a pretty good set for price, ordered and heat
has anyone got this already? i want to know what the quality of the chips are is like?
Chips with everything.
Link not working
Have Argos pulled it?
love poker but as a dinner party game there's always a couple of people who dont know how to play, it takes to long to explain and gets pushed aside when the booze is flowing. Stick to the uno, jenga and strip twister!!
Thank-you. Love a friendly game of poker.
Its a good price but a word of warning: 200 chips don't go far, if you get 7 or 8 for a game you'll struggle for chips as you 'chip up'. Also they don't appear to be numbered, a real pain. Thirdly, cards will be paper not 100% plastic and so will not last long at all.

Good for £10 but if you are serious about playing regular home games forget it.
I play alot, we normally have 6 people a game. I know what you mean with limited chips but for casual players its fine. If you were serious why would you pay a tenner for a set..... (maybe because you lost it all from betting?)

if you zoom in close enough, you can see they are numbered, thats the key problem with most cheap sets. these seem ok, and if there similar to most sets around that price, thats great value for money, and the chips should have a weighty feel.
Just ordered, heat added!
Hot deal! Cheap as chips!!;)

The mistake that they always make with these sets is that you get the same amount of chips for each denomination. The balance is all wrong.

I take it you didnt bother looking at the pic then?

worth it for the case alone
Would have been better if they had a fifth different coloured set of chips, to allow for an additional denotation (think that's the right word) in chip value. Maybe it's personal preference, but once blinds have raised high enough, you find the small value chips pretty much redundant and it's a pain pushing massive piles (ha! "massive piles") of them back and forth across the table.

that said, this is great value for the price, and therefore: hot!
The chips are the usual 11.5g plastic ones you get in all these type of sets. Decent enough.

As someone already mentioned, this set isn't really enough for a 7 or 8 player game. Especially if you plan to allow re-buys or top-ups. I play a 7 or 8 player home game most weekends and you really want one of the 500 chip sets for that. Argos do have a 500 chip set but it's WAY overpriced at £40. Ebuyer do pretty much the same 500 set but for a far more reasonable £16 (+ delivery).

Dunno if these are numbered but, personally, I prefer it if they're not .... so you can decide on your own denominations. Not that big a drama eaither way though really.

Oh .... and the card will be plastic coated rubbish. If you are shuffling properly (ie. cut shuffling) then they won't last a game. I know cos all the people in my home game tried with the free cards we all got with our poker sets and they all went in the bin. 100% plastic is the only way to go.

OK price for what it is but a bit small for a proper game and the ebuyer 500 set is better value.
Awesome deal! Ordered..! thanks!

Learn the rules? ... yes.

Learn how to play well? ... no.

People play completely differently when they actually have to pay money for their chips. Same with all the poker sites. The play chip tables are great for learning the rules but not for how to play well .... becuase it costs you nothing if you lose. You find that out quick enough when you start playing for money though.

(PS .... amazing the difference an extra £3 discount makes! Only reached 80 degrees when it came up a couple of weeks back! - https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/200-chip-leather-poker-set-was-34-99-now-12-99-argos/958380#comments)

300 chips with aluminium case for 9.99 (RRP 39.99) @ amazon looks like better deal to me. It has all that is being offered by the above deal and more chips.
