Gold Crown Playing Cards

Today is a good day. Done with tutoring high school geomtery. My student basically wins at geometry now. I’m like…awesome…Also got Copic markers today. Was going to pick some up at AX but didn’t. Got them for about the same super wholesale price on ebay. They’re. Neat. Like little paintbrushes. In marker form. Still sitting around for two orders of sealed retired decks from casinos.

Gold Crown : Back spread. Hard to tell, but those are actually single cards that look like stuck doubles.

These are a step closer to those horrific BCG cards. A good coating of plastick. Limits the things you’d like to be able to do with a  deck of cards.

Well. Its got an all over back. That looks like fish scales or a whole bunch of letter c’s or something. Also Its one way. Also its ugly.

Hot shot cut: ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
So. I actually didn’t think there would be a deck that would counter intuitively go against this move. But. Here we go. Normally you want a hot shot card to return towards you. This card like…does something that keeps it going more forward. Must be the snap.

-Another obscure deck from the middle of nowhere. I mean…the cards don’t even come with a box. Just wrapped in plastic seal. Where…am I going to keep the cards. Oh. Right. I just bought a bunch of rubber bands of varying length. I wonder what effect I’ll use those for. Uhm. Quick bottom line. Don’t use these. I have some other things to get to at the moment.

–Kudos ♪♫
