If you are buying this deck to play card games, and you are looking for something different, and seashells appeal to you, then this deck is a good choice. The quality is very good and Virginijus Poshkus's colored illustrations are lovely. It is fun to pull this deck out and listen to the comments and compliments.

Nevertheless, if you are a student of mollusk shells, amateur or professional, then you may have some disappointment with this deck: only common names, in English, are used to identify the shells; ten of the illustrations of the gastropods are reversed, making them sinistral specimens, which coil the wrong way. We could temporarily delude ourselves by believing that they are rare freaks, but that fantasy does not last long once the idea of sloppiness or ignorance, on the part of the illustrator or the layout person, comes to mind; the Golden Cowry illustration is the ventral side, cheating us of the splendor of the richly colored orange dorsal side, from which the cowry gets its name. Illustrated this way, the stand-in for this card could have been a Map Cowry, a Little Deer Cowry, or any number of other similar cowries that sport a plain off-white base. The effect is largely the same.

It would have been nice if each shell had printed, along with its name, from where in the world it comes. Even general localities would be a plus: "West Indies", "Australia", "India", "Japan"... After all, the title of the deck is "Seashells of the World". Even the most casual of shell enthusiasts would likely find this information edifying, interesting, and even inspiring.
