There's not enough informations here to tell much.
It would be better if you could post the capx, and tell exactly what you mean by "events don't work".
What are you expecting, what is actually happening ?
One thing you could do anyway would be to use a single "On start of layout" top event, and put the test about the value of "Chips" as sub-events.
It's always nicer to have one and only on "on start of layout" condition in your event sheet.
Make also sure your sprites (3 to 6) are invisible by default.
