Wow, wordpress sure have gotten a few makeovers since I last used it for this blog. Uploading photos was a much better experience than I remembered.
So I’m using my old format of Deck reviews with text and photos. You won’t be seeing too many card reviews here done in video, but thats alright by me.
So, we’re back in 2015, and there’s a lot of decks I’ve missed out on in the past few years. After hours of scanning ebay like the good old days, this was one of my first purchases. Am I supposed to feel bad that I got a brand new deck off of Ebay for less than the kickstarter price as well as the price of the Artist’s website? What caught my attention was the artwork.
You’ll notice that every numbered card is exploding with artwork. My personal favorites are the five and eights.
And the artwork doesn’t repeat across suits either. At least I don’t think they do…
Birds, buildings, and those little matryoshka dolls.
Handling wise, its your standard Kentucky USPC stock. A solid deck of cards. Anaconda dribble was surprisingly easy with this pack, but its probably just cause I haven’t been playing with cards for awhile.
Alright. I’m off for a week or so for a business trip out in Georgia. I went to school out there for my Master’s, and I told myself I wouldn’t go back, and as fate has it, I’ve been sent through there once on a trip to Cleveland, and now I’m being sent there a 2nd time in half a year. WRYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!
One of these days, I’ll figure out how to embed polls, and readers can vote on which deck they want to see a review of next.
Thanks for visiting everyone. Stay tuned for the next mild installment of RamblerKudos
