The forums dedicated to serving poker chip enthusiasts were a huge help in completing this project as well so it would be amiss if I didn't mention them.
Poker Chip Forum at http://www.pokerchipforum.com/
Chiptalk at http://www.chiptalk.net/forum/
and Home Poker Tourney at http://homepokertourney.com/

Social media played a huge role in our success especially Facebook and Twitter

Thank you all for making this a reality especially for our earliest backers who have been so patient and so supportive (denoted by ** before their names) and our largest donors (denoted by three plus signs after their name).

We will submit the artwork hopefully after the weekend. It takes Kickstarter a little time to collect all the funds from the backers. But we should ship the final product next month. I'm really looking forward to getting this started. Thank you all again.

Help Us Fund Our Kickstarter Campaign!

SALVATORE APODACA - Tuesday, August 18, 2015

This is our first Kickstarter campaign. I'm actually pretty excited about it but we're going to need your help. Of course not everyone needs to seat 40 people for a poker tournament but we are hoping that even if you aren't our target audience for this project you might still pitch in a buck or more.

Check it out...

Tournament Seating System Kickstarter Campaign

We are seeking funding for our newest Tournament Seating Chips. This system helps you to seat players using the tools of the trade – poker chips. Each seat has a numbered chip. Each table marker has a color or theme. So you can easily seat up to 40 players with ease. For random seating you simply lay all your seating chips face down on your main table or a side area and they all look exactly the same.

A player can just pick a chip when he or she registers. The chip will have his/her table color/theme and his seat number. It can be recorded by the registrar and the player can be seated. It's a simple, random and transparent system. 

It's also attractive and a great conversation starter. I mean check out the theme - heraldry. Who can resist dragons, lions, double-headed eagles and sexy mermaids? But really we're just hoping this will help some of our customers who need to seat players efficiently for tournaments or other games.

Check out the artwork and the setups below...

If you are interested in the product or you just want to help us fund the campaign follow the link at the top of the article. Or maybe you know someone who might be interested in this project. You can share the campaign using this link...

Thank you for your interest and assistance.



Best Browsers

SALVATORE APODACA - Saturday, July 04, 2015

Well, we've gotten a few reports of problems from folks trying to place orders. This is not uncommon in this world where there are so many different operating systems and so many different devices that all use different types of browsers. It can get very confusing.

First of all, let's start with the obvious. Microsoft announced this year that they are dumping Internet Explorer. Of course they'll be replacing it with a new browser called Edge but at this point we haven't designed our site nor do we support any Micrsoft browsers. Sorry. So if you do happen to be an IE user you might not be able to place an order. In that case you can contact us via email to place an order another way or download one the more modern browsers below.


These are the browsers we have tested and that we currently support...
Google Chromehttp://www.google.com/chrome/
Mozilla Firefoxhttps://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Apple Safarihttps://www.apple.com/safari/
Opera Software's Operahttp://www.opera.com/

We highly recommend all of the browsers above. My favorite happens to be a tie between Chrome and Firefox.

Now you might ask. Why wouldn't we support Internet Explorer? Well, it tends to require a lot of extra attention that we just didn't have the time to build for. And since it is being put out to pasture we just felt our time was better spent supporting other more modern browsers.We may add some support in the future but right now it is best if you use one of the above browsers. 

Just remember you don't have to uninstall your old IE browser. You can have an extra browser on your system any time. It sometimes helps because some sites just won't work with certain browsers.

If you have any questions or would like to offer us some advice :) just drop us a line. Thanks guys. Happy 4th of July!
