Does anyone have a pack of these yet? I know they just came out today but maybe someone has a promo deck or something. If anyone has them, can we get a review?

I just ordered some so when they come, I will give my review. The possibilities with these are endless! I can't wait.

If you want to see them or get some, here is the link:

Ordered a three pack this afternoon. Should have them in a couple of days.

Ill be ordering a case... they seem like the kind of deck you could really put a story too. "These were my grandfathers cards" or "I found these in the basement, and they are actually quite magical". whatever whatever.

Its a shame they didn't use the best finish they have (Masters stock). But hopefully the stock is better than the regular bikes us playing card company puts out. The cut usually sucks. Tally Ho's are great though. I bet there just fine!

I was thinking you could get rid of that box, and just beat up an new box (cuts/rips). That might add to the realism. -Jesse

12 decks = $59.95 + shipping ($6.00 for me in alabama) $66 /12 = $5.50 each

This price is not any different than balck tigers in a retail setting. How did you come up with $11 each?
Pay it forward

What I did to make the shipping not an issue is I bought something else that I have had my eye on. (Ghost Gaff Deck-now this is expensive!) So my advise is either wait until you are going to buy something else and then throw the cards in or just find something right now that you want and get them now.

agreed! I just could not see how he came up with $11 each. This deck, as I pointed out is not anymore expensive than some of the others...except Ghost Gaff Deck Smile

One deck plus shipping can be pricey. Better off to buy in quantity.

I wouldn't use them as a bizarrist, if you want to be believed it's an authentic old deck. Although they look awesome, they don't look real. They are neatly cut, all straight and fan in a great way; All the opposite of how an old deck should behave.

But they DO look great!!!

Are these new cards that have a "worn" design? In other words you can't pass them off as actually "old" cards?

Give a new deck a spin in the washing machine and then dip it in tea.
forget fanning/shuffling though!
Double posters should be shot!

No really!!

Well, you could say that it's an old deck that you had re-coated or something.

Laymen may believe a lot of stuff, but I don't know how many people would believe that there is actually a place that re-coats cards Smile

Actually,I just sprayed some old cards with 'Rustoleum'Painter's Touch flat clear coat.They dried perfectly in about 10 minutes smooth flat finish.

I have not seen these cards first hand yet,but it may not be too far a stretch to say you sprayed them for preservation.

I have these on order,and I am working on a routine that includes a couple of other antique objects.The guest's will never have to handle the cards.

Best.

How about saying you magically recoated them using an ancient polymer paint spell you found in a druid's oracle. Yeah, cool.
