Crimson.

Back on track. It’s Wednesday.

Name: Dan Sperry’s Crimson Playing Cards
Date: 6.10.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
Sure, it’s a custom deck. But passing that price onto the consumer isn’t always a cool choice. Oh well. I forget. Was it 5, 6, or 7 a deck….only at MJM….hmm..

MJM says limited printing. We know limited means…we made too many so we need to sell them faster…somehow…you could probably get one or a few at this point, nothing special atm.

Personally. I like these. Not because its all red, black and white, or emo or anything. Lets see. Feeling of stock. Is . Really Soft. Softer than bikes. But still with a ‘soft’ snap. Did I mention its soft. Everything else is about average. Probably takes hits and bends more so than other decks. But the one I have open is still in … good life after 1-2 months. Holds together well. Somewhat durable. Unfortunately, it eats heat easy. So protect them/?

Red, Black, and White gets super bias points from me. Hm. You can see…razors… a rose…among other things. The white border at least keeps it from going crazy. Aside from that, fans and spreads aren’t anything special.

Well. I don’t want to use this deck for XCM or everyday use. So I Keep in mnemonica stack. And since that uses so many faros. it’s a plus. Super. 1 the 4 of clubs…2 the 2 of hearts….blah blah blah. Its by Juan Tamariz. Good stuff.

It's Pierrot. The dunny from Devilrobots. With a bunny hat. Under the detective hat.

-Dan Sperry. His acts are quite nice. I don’t have anything against him yet. Unless you count these cards. What…no…just kidding…these cards are alright. But then again. I don’t have much praise for them either. Except for the color scheme. Give me something red black and white, and I’ll buy it. Which means I’m looking at those 09 anglos sometime soon. How’d they know??? Must be real magic.

Absolut Deck

Its Monday, post earlier, since I’m gone during the evening. I find that the average post takes me about half an hour. Not bad for a time commitment of sorts.

Name: Absolut Deck

At the time of this post, Ebay is your only bet. Average cost of these decks is usually sitting in the 10$ range. I was able to get 5$ a deck on ebay…but that’s just me. They used to be cheaper. Supposedly. They probably won’t stay cheap though. Production stopped a few years back and such.

-The Court Cards; they be holding drinks. Difference betweens suits is the pips on their outfits. The Joker’s all out. AoS Is a little on the bold side. Ad Card is a nice addition for ad/collectible purposes.

Absolut : Pips have drink recipes on them.

The finish. Its PLASTIC. Plastic means it basically lasts forever. Unless you’re willingly crimping them. Don’t do it. After a month of use, dropping it on a table, the deck still lands full flat. No odd bends to them. Pretty good if you want to have something to use forever. Pretty bad if you want to do fans and spreads. Pretty good if you want to do cuts and XCM. Pretty bad if you want a non plastic deck. On a side note, the box is kinda unstable. Like the lid. Don’t do box flips. The cards come flying out.

They’re PLASTIC. Plastic is bad.

Blue and silver in a white border. Vodka bottle in the middle. Uhm. That vodka bottle in the middle makes it one way. So do all the clubs and spades running north to south. But that’s not why you’re using them of course. Pretty. I told my friends there were hearts on the back
They didn’t see them behind the vodka bottle. .. .. .. Still. Kudos to Absolut for a good advertising product.

Plastics cards are super thin. In addition they ‘stick’ to each other. Doubles don’t get any easier then this. Well, at least the center double I use.

-Absolut Vodka. I wouldn’t drink these cards, since… I don’t drink. But they have drink recpies on them. 10 of them. Repeated on all four suits. Not that you would use this deck for drinking games or anything. Plasticky. Good for XCM, unless you count fans and spreads as XCM. Rarara…uhhh I personally like them. I don’t need more though since they last.
