I don’t post often, but i’ve noticed something when i was last on this board (monthsa ago). The complaint about not enough plastic chips to play with. For some reason it dawned on me that perhaps my group was unique.
Since the first time I ever played, we didn’t rely on chips at all really (except in the very beginning of a game). We used coins. Pennies, nickels, then quarters as substitutes. I’ve even seen the new “sac” goldish dollar coin slapped on the table to represent 100 inf. in a particularly brutal tiff between Germany and Russia.
So we never had an issue with too few chips. I always that it was cool and figured everybody did this until I read this forum. Does anybody else use this method when the chips run out?
