Here are some additional details about the cards.

Each card features one element with the exception of the 4 Jokers (3 of them has 4 elements and 1 has 2 elements plus the card maker's company logo). Since there isn't much to say about elements 105-118, they were squeezed onto the jokers. The newly named element 112 (copernicium) is in the 4th edition of the cards.

Therefore:
52 cards x 2 decks x 1 element = 104 elements
3 Jokers x 4 elements = 12 elements
1 Joker x 2 elements = 2 elements
===========
118 elements

The only negatives about the cards are that they're not top-quality plastic cards but rather light-weight cardboard cards with maybe a thin plastic coating. Also, the cards don't come in a hard-shell plastic carrying case, as do the same company's astronomy cards, but just a flimsy cardboard box, which makes it easy for cards to slip out and be lost.

I teach 8th grade science and my kids complete an "Adopt-an-Element" project every year. The Periodic Table Playing Cards are a fun way to assign kids their elements. It allows me to assign them randomly (kids pick a card from a hat) and they are able to learn things about the element they will be researching right away. They especially like the "uses" section on each card which lists a couple of common uses of the element.

I'm a Chemistry teacher at a high school and used these periodic table playing cards as a charming gift to my students of the year. It has gotten "wow this is cool!" reviews from students that have received them and those that wish they had.

The periodic table playing cards are an amazingly fun way of learning about the properties of the different elements. The cards themselves are very high quality and come in a case that keeps them in good shape for a long time. You get two decks of course due to the size of the table. If you have a highschooler who loves chemistry or perhaps is struggling it in, or if your a science major like myself in college and just want to be nerdy, these are an excellent way to accomplish that.

I was very pleasantly surprised with the high-quality feel of these cards. They are nicer than most flash cards. The graphics are very clear and well designed. My wife and I already feel a little smarter about chemistry just by reading the legend card and thumbing through the deck. The color-coding of the cards by series (i.e. alkali metals) is a great way to reinforce that association. These cards would be great for home-schooling too. (Same as Periodic Table Playing Cards )

We got this for our 10 year old and he, his dad (a chemistry major) and I, love them. We even got to stump Dad on chemistry! High quality, great graphics, and key information in nice compact space. Highly recommend.

I almost didn't buy these cards since the price seems pretty steep(around $15 when I bought maybe a little less) but I was wanting some playing cards and since I'm a chemist these just caught my eye. The pros are beautiful cards, double deck for the $, colorful, nice quality - not matte finished but not super duper slick either and not too thin - I was very impressed with the quality of the cards and the look/feel of the cards. the card value is only in the corners due to the element taking center stage but all is readable - no teeny tiny itty bitty print though it has to fit on the card. the only cons are the packaging - not in a clear plastic case like it appears to be in the pictue(the black ghat looks like a case is on the cards themselves)-they come in a cardboard box that opens on the end and 2 other boxes slide out with a deck in each one - the little boxes simply advertise their other decks - at first I thought I had anatomy cards but nope just advertising other decks I could look for and purchase. Also another possible drawback is the visibility- the symbol and card value are large enough print but some of the backgrounds make it harder to see. The samples shown are the black cards with the 'better' backgrounds for that color- the red cards aren't as easily distinguished if you're playing a fast game - and coupled with the busyness of the cars takes some adjusting. my main problems were the red cards on the bright pink and orange backgrounds - other backgrounds they were fine. I've played about 6-7 games of klondike solitaire and my eyes adjusted more and more each round. also as mentioned in the pro-s - the element takes center stage so if you're used to looking at the center of the card for the suite/number, etc you're not gonna have that (can see this easily in the picture). also the back of the box says 1 element per card- this is true for most but the 4 joker cards(2 per deck) DO combine the later elements into 4 per card.

Purchased as a Christmas stocking stuffer for my young, curious son. He spends hours poring over these cards and thanks to them know more about the periodic table at his age (10) than I knew at twice his age. Eliminates the tedium (common at this age) of flipping through a book, but sacrifices none of the information. Highly recommended (for grownups, too).
