About

About this project

Action Chips

Action Chips is a company owned by Mimble LLC which is owned by myself Michael Kimble. What the chips do is help create a more visual playing field for Magic: The Gathering as well as bring poker chips to the Magic table to shuffle while your opponent thinks of his or her next move.

  • The chips in the video are different from the ones in the description, since the ones in the video were hard to read. I came up with a new, more visible, layout for the chips. They are in the description below.

Why I Need The Campaign

Where I currently get my chips printed only prints the chips one-sided. Since the minimum order to get them double sided, at the appropriate cost per chip to ensure a good profit margin, is 10,000 chips. I need to raise at least $10,000 in order to make one design double sided. Since the +1/+1 Counters are the most popular, that chip will be the first to get the luxury of being double sided.

For each additional $10,000 that is raised another chip will be made double-sided. The order will go as follows:

$10,000 = Plus One Counter Chip
$20,000 = Five Plus One Counters Chip
$30,000 = Do Not Untap Chip
$40,000+ = Backers Vote


One +1/+1 Counter Chip

This chip is for placing +1/+1 counters on permanents, like Creatures and Planeswalkers. Once you have four and you need to put a fifth simply place the +5/+5 Counter on after removing the four you already have on.


Five +1/+1 Counters Chip

This chip, as explained above, is for when you already have four +1 counters on a permanent. Simply remove the four +1 counters and place this +5/+5 Counter on. This way you don't end up with a stack of 10 poker chips on one permanent.


Twenty-Five +1/+1 Counters Chip

Once you need to add a 25th counter on your permanent simply remove the others you currently have on, and place this Twenty-Five +1/+1 Counters chip on.

One-Hundred +1/+1 Counters Chip

This is the ultimate I win chip. Once you need to place a 100th counter on a permanent simply remove the ones currently on, and place this One-Hundred +1/+1 Counters chip on instead.



Does Not Untap Chip

This chip is for consistency of the game. When Tidebinder Mage enters the battlefield and locks down your Siege Wurm you can place this chip on the Siege Wurm so you know not to untap it in your next untap step. 


More Chips on the Way!

I have been thinking of other chips as well to create but don't want to invest money I don't have into them until I have a fully backed project.

Chips like:

Exiled Chip: This chip will be used to easily identify your exile pile.

Poison/Infect ChipThis chip will help you keep track of  how much Infect a permanent or player has. This chip will also need a +5 Infect Chip to allow for easier counting for the opposing player.


Storage

When this campaign is successful I will be working with a poker chip case company to build appropriate cases for my customers to easily store and transport their chips.I currently use dice bags to get my chips from game to game, but I am sure there are other ways to transport them as well.


Ideas are as follows:

- Acryllic Tube with twist-off cap to hold up to 25 chips

- Small case to hold up to 25 chips

- Medium case to hold up to 25 chips, one 20-sided die, and 75 sleeved cards.

- Medium case to hold up to 50 chips

- Medium case to hold up to 50 chips, two 20 sided die, and 75 sleeved cards.


Why Back This Campaign?

As a backer you will receive a discount on the "Plus One Counter" chip as it will retail for $1.25/chip. So what are you waiting for? Back this project and get some poker chips to use during your next MTG session!

Images For Store Owners

Pro's

- Add's a more serious feel to the game

- Gives you something to occupy your hands during your opponents turn other than obnoxiously mixing up your cards in your hand

- When you knock the chips over on accident you can still see how many were on instead of guessing if it's a 12/12 or a 14/14 because you accidentally hit the D20 and it rolled over

- Opponent intimidation

Con's

- Adds more to the playing area

- Cost compared to dice

- Quantity required compared to dice

FAQ's

Q. They take up 1/3 of the card. Is there a way to make them smaller?

A. Since they are real poker chips, I can't, but it is not as big of a deal as you would think. I have been play testing these for months and neither my opponent nor me have been confused as to what the creature is or does.

Q. Do they damage the cards?

A. No, I've been using Dragon Shields during the play testing on my cards and have had no signs of damage to the cards. Just don't slam them down on the cards as that may cause damage.

Q. What weight are the chips?

A. 11.5 Grams

Risks and challenges

As this is my first Kickstarter campaign I can not predict what challenges I will come across, but I can assure you that I am an avid problem solver. I will find the answer to anything that may go wrong with this campaign and will assure you that your investment will be a wise one.
