    Need a few chips

    I have recently learned that the Wind Creek casinos (the former Crystal and Seaport Casinos) have 1 Florin and 5 Florin chips. I would love to get a few of each. I believe they are only available to locals (maybe anyone who pays in florins?), but you can buy them from players who are using them. A bit tougher to get than most chips, but probably not super hard.

    I am also still looking for a $2.50 Xanadu chip.

    If anyone if in Aruba or going soon and is willing to help me out, please send me a private message. Thank you!

    In case any of you were nervous about helping out a guy who rarely posts, I have been posting on this board for 15 years. I collect all sorts of stuff from the casinos in Aruba going back to the first casino which opened in 1959. I especially like chips and playing cards, but also collect matches, slot cards, business cards, postcards, swizzle sticks, some dice (hard to store) and, well, you get the idea. I have probably had more than 20 people help me out in those years and I believe I have lived up to my promises in each and every case. Yeah, I once had someone never send me the chips she told me she would send, but that was no biggie. Anyway, I pay for everything people actually get for me, add money in to cover postage and even a bit more for their trouble. If you might be able to help (I also don't require any commitment to actually get anything for me, it's your vacation after all), please send me a pm.

    I picked up some chips previously for the chip collector and would possibly be able to help with the HI late next month. The chances of me getting downtown 2 trips in a row is highly doubtful though for any help with the Wind Creek.
    Just finished trip 36 and have trip 37 Booked.

    I won't be there until late December. If you can't get them, remind me mid December.

    I have just found out that the Glitz also has new chips and that there are two types of the 1 and 5 Florin chips from the Wind Creek (one set at the old Crystal and one set at the old Seaport?). Add that to the $2.50 Xanadu chip and the first set of 1 and 5 Florin Wind Creek chips and I am in need of some help!!
