These guys used to have red and white:

I see they only show red and black now but you might email them to see if they can still supply white. But you have to buy a lot of them, more like 80 sets worth rather than 10. But it comes to something like a dollar and a half per set.

A good tip is too look for backgammon pieces instead since they are basically the same thing. Look here for instance http://www.pmpproducts.com/explore/0/ba ... ckers.html

Another idea is to use poker or texas holdem chips,i used to when i did the schools and quite inexpensive too John.
Of course red and black would be ok on green and white boards too.....make sure they are numbered .
I do have a dozen sets of red/white plastic types but i may hold on to them.
Always read "Cannings Compilation 2nd Edition" every day.

Hi All,
Thank you for your assistance and suggestions
I did in the end place an order with gameparts.
Then I heard back from the ICHF who are able to supply these pieces. But it was to late sadly. :(

Perhaps the ICHF could be metioned in the ACF store page for being able to supply these. :D
Tha Checker Mavin has a great article about checker pieces and boards, worth a read :D
