After years of use, my plastic money chips are beginning to deteriorate. I purchased similar plastic chips recently to replace the original, but they are slick and fly everywhere.
These metal chips are much easier to use. They make the game look more Asian with characters imprinted.
I did not experience any odor as expressed by others. I hope over time and use, the color will not wear off.
I would recommend these metal chips over the plastic ones.
There is no Ònifty velvet pouchÓ:but there is a little drawstring bag. I didn't pay close attention to the number of coins - the version we play requires more coins, so I'm ordering a 2nd set. Shipping was really fast!!
Shipping took slightly longer than expected but the coins arrived at a reasonable date. Opening up the package it appeared as if these had been in storage or somewhere for a while prior to shipping as the plastic bag that held the coins looked well worn from the inside most likely due to the coins having been in there and shuffling about for a while. And as to be expected with metal rubbing against metal, the coins had an off smell similar to old change. They also left a gritty feeling on my hands after handling for the first time. A quick rinse and scrub with some dish soap and the smell was mostly gone (the zinc will always have some slight smell to them) and the gritty feeling was gone.
Overall the coins had a rather consistent quality to them with only one of the 141 being bent ever so slightly. This was fixed with some simple pressure. The bag they came with for storage is of a nice solid quality as well so I don't foresee any chance of these ripping out or being lost any time soon.
As a suggestion for perhaps future orders, it would be fantastic if some kind of reference guide was sent along with the coins denoting the typical values for each color. With so many ways to play Mahjong I've had a very hard time finding a straight forward answer to the Chinese scoring system in relation to coin/stick values. Perhaps a small sheet that notes how many coins per person and the total "pot" that they start with, and then that can be broken down into how many coins are paid out when a player wins a hand.
Product is usable and as expected but has a weird smell
Great quality. Very pleased with service.
