More on Tallies
Tallies vary somewhat, both in markings and in numbers of sticks, so you may find it difficult to fit the set you have to the points so far described. Also 2,000 points is sometimes not sufficient, so it is suggested that a coin is used to stand for a high value token.
Here are some suggestions for tally valuations.
Payments will need to be rounded to the nearest 10 points
If you have two types of tally sets, then you might mix them to allow a higher points allocation (rather than use a coin).
