Good looking, but hard to use.
on October 30, 2012
I got these earlier today, and as far as I can tell from using them so far, they are incredibly easy to handle and use.
They look amazing, though that may be personal bias as teal is my favorite color. the "worn" look is quite impressive, though I'd say slightly over-done. I have plenty of actual old, used and worn cards, and they don't even look nearly this worn out. Still a nice look though.
Now the main problem with them I have: The colored diamonds and hearts.
They're teal. This wouldn't be bad, in fact I'd say it's a good thing usually. But they're also very over-worn, as I said earlier. This makes them hard to differentiate from the card itself. It's to the point that I can't tell diamonds from hearts, much less the number of the card, without a good few seconds of looking at it closely.
Overall a good buy, especially for collectors, but probably not good for magicians or actual play.
