The Latin Quarter Playing Cards and Gaming Chips

1 point

There are so many cool things in this campaign that I want to talk about all of them at once, but I have to pick something, so let's start with the 10 gram, 39mm ceramic gaming chips. Gaming chips, and not just Poker chips, because you can pick your own denominations, choose to have the value on both sides, and have a 20 value chip instead of 25, if that works better for the games that you play. 100 chips, in mix-and-match denominations in increments of 20 chips, are $50. 

And then there are the cards. Printed in the USA on premium crushed stock, with a 2-way back design featuring metallic gold ink. The courts feature filigree embellishments to the pips and are enhanced with the same metallic gold ink. The Latin Quarter deck with acrylic deck protector is $14. Three decks and three acrylic deck protectors are $36.

The campaign also offers razor-edged casino dice with gold stamping, deluxe wooden cases for the chips, and uncut press sheets that would look amazing on your wall. Check out the campaign before it ends on January 6, 2020.

About the Gaming Chips

The Latin Quarter gaming chips are 10 gram, 39mm ceramic chips. You can create your own set by choosing stacks of 20 at a time of only the denominations you want. You can also choose to have the denominations on both sides, and a plain or branded edge.


Here are the denominations available (plus the 20 chip, above):


Imagine how fantastic these would look on the table during your next game:


About the Playing Cards

The cards are printed in the USA on premium crushed stock by the United States Playing Card Company. They have an embossed finish, also known as Air-Cushion, Cambric, Linen or Magic. 


The backs of the cards have a 2-way design featuring metallic gold ink. 


The courts feature filigree embellishments to the pips and are enhanced with the same metallic gold ink.


The Aces are custom designs with matching filigree:


The tuck box is printed in the USA by industry favorite Clove Street Press, on a smooth finish midnight blue card stock. It is hand assembled, and features 2 foils including a matte gold and uncommonly used matte red foil.


About the Wooden Case

A set like this deserves a case to show it off. The wooden case holds 500 chips, 2 decks, and accessories. It is made in the USA of solid American hardwood.


The case is available as an add-on, so you can get exactly the set you want.


About the Dice

The dice are razor-edged casino dice, made in the USA with a piano black finish and gold foil branding.

I love these, and they kinda make me wish I hadn't just dropped some fat stacks on Roxley's Iron Clays.

I like the curly design on the edges, the color palette, and the denominations.
