I bought this deck to use for playing card divination--it's quite simple to do. You can use your usual tarot associations (sans majors) or simply search the internet for sources of information. This deck is absolutely lovely for divination. I used a 5mm corner rounder to get rid of those sharp corners (which might be authentic, but poked me when I shuffled. I briefly wondered if that's where the game Poker got its name...)

The deck is beautiful and so affordable. Don't hesitate, it's a great buy!

Cool, but No Jokers 10 Aug 2012
By LokRobster - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I really like this deck, got it for atmosphere/effect for an RPG [Deadlands Hexslingin'] - note that even though there are 55 cards in the deck, there are no Joker cards. Of the extra 3 cards, one is an original-styled Ace of Spades [kind of bluish ink with an eagle and stars], and the last two are a fairly interesting history account of L.I. Cohen and his card-making business.

I had a friend color up the "history lesson" cards as jokers, so this will work for me, but I figured potential buyers should know that there are no jokers here...

Awesome Cards!!!!!! 23 May 2010

These playing cards are the perfect deck, for any re-creator. Plus they are good for kids learning to count. They are coated so they don't stick.

Very Nice Antique-Look Cards 25 Jan 2013
By Stephen Mann - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I run a Weird West RPG with a card-based mechanic and I'm always on the look-out for atmospheric card decks to dress-up the game and give the players a little value added enjoyment.

With these I reckon I've hit some sort of sweet spot. The pip printing looks like it was done on a low-budget press (but wasn't), the court cards have a one-way up, crowded artwork feel. None of the cards has an index in the corner, and those corners are square rather than rounded. The backs are also very olde-worlde in look. 10/10.

I'm dropping a star because there are no jokers in the deck, and I need them. There are a couple of cards with a printed history of the deck on them and I'll write "joker" on them, but it won't be the same.

Faro Cards 28 Nov 2011

I purchased 2 decks of the Highlander Cards for my Faro Bank, once I recieved them I found them to be very slippery, other than that they are great! Aside from the coating they are very historically accurate.

Unique deck of Cards 24 April 2011
By Lucy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Wow, they really used to play without the numbers/letters written on the cards - it takes some gettin' used to. It's a neat deck of cards though and an enjoyable experience. This was a birthday gift for a 13 year old and he loved it!
