Treasure Hunting : Thats a lot of good stuff. Sealed Sands, Old Las Vegas Clubs, an opened, but new Golden Nugget etc...

But,,I guess we’re stuck going over something else today.

I forgot where I read this, but apparently Wildfire Casino eliminated table card games or something…i think also two types of manufacturers were used, so this one is Paulson.

Depends on where you go to get this one. Should be available on Ebay. I went to Spinetti’s online and used a coupon to save a bit. 4$ and less @ Spinetti’s. Ebay goes to around 8$.

Different from most cards you’d be used to. Stock is on the stiff and strong end. New from box stack is thinner than new from box bicycles by a bit. Cards are manufactured in .. Mexico, so it’s a good change away from USPC branded things. Spreads nicely. Fans nicely. Giant fans,,,not nicely.

Barely/doesn’t faro backs up due to the stiffness. Almost cut my fingers with the first faro.  Not cool. : ( Faros easily faces up.

Would be a lot nicer with a white border. Personal taste likes the dice and flames and such. Paulson all over back design featuring crossover circles.

Superflip: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
The original idea is that you should only be super flipping with white border cards. For obvious reasons of flashing. Putting that aside, the stock here allows a …heavier landing? Good snap.

Wildfire : Available in Paulson Red and Black
Wildfire : Available in Paulson Red and Black

-Mentioned on decknique forums awhile back, so I decided to finally pick some up. No use picking up a whole bunch if I won’t use them daily. Available in Red and Black. Neat logo/insignia on the back. Not neat all over back design. Made in Mexico for Las Vegas. Face cards have black notches on the faces at NE and SW. Aces have nothces at NW and SE.court cards also look a little…distracted. These notches carry over to spot cards without being placed, leaving an odd index placement towards the center. These cards feel like they have a long lifetime ahead of them.

–Kudos ♪♫
