I am certainly not suggesting to buy another game JUST for the chips. But if someone happens to have both, the chips are interchangeable. In some long A&A games, more chips might be handy. You could also use the Warlords black chips as 10s or to mean something else.
Multicolored mini poker chips rock. I use the crap out of them in my own game designs. In Pacific I use orange and yellow chips to indicate damage on installations. I match colors with counters in A&A minis land and naval to use as backings for the micron thin counters, or just by color in very large battles when I run out of counters.
Of course, it might be more trouble than it is worth to sort them or whatever. I know some gamers combine game parts from different games into a big “pool” of game equipment. I usually keep games and their parts separated, so it will take a bit of extra effort to dig out two games to play just one game but wanting extra chips.
Back in the day a friend of mine had a bad habit of “pooling” game equipment. He had a huge collection (thousands) of the airfix/revell 1/72 world war 2 soldiers all mixed together in a freaking tackle box. Most unpainted. It took hours to sort through them when we wanted to table top battle or “enhance” the original A&A. Not a fan of pooling.
Anyway, it was just an FYI.
Thank you for adding another board game to my want list…
