Bicycle Steampunk Playing Cards
Bicycle Steampunk Playing Cards
Offered by Now That's a Deal!
Price: 5.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Stylish not exceptional, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I collect decks of cards, this one has some merit in terms of design but I still feel that not enough was done to make it an outstanding creation. The packaging is well designed as are the card backs but other then that, this is a standard bicycle deck with few distinctive features. If you are seeking more elaborate decks, try some other offerings by Bicycle, like Carnival Inferno, or Tragic Royalty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael is hilarious, 7 April 2014

Here's a stand-up comedian who offers hilarious studies of everyday life through his comedy. I find his brand of comedy very down to earth and incredibly easy to relate to. If you've never seen one of his stand-up sets, this compendium is an ideal starting point. If you're in the mood for some good laughs, get yourselves a copy, you won't regret it!


How to Be a Poker Player: The Philosophy of Poker
How to Be a Poker Player: The Philosophy of Poker
by Haseeb Qureshi
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.76

4.0 out of 5 stars Still digging my teeth into this, 7 April 2014

It's a valid book for any aspiring poker player. The author posits that the book will work best with readers who are a least proficient players, who know they positional play, pot odds, and ev. However I think that anyone with a modicum of interest in poker will find this a very insightful read, definitely worth your time. My only reserve is the quality of the paper on which the book is written. The soft cover copy I bought tends to warp with minimal manipulation, considering that this is a book you will be getting back to, I figured that the publishers could have sought better materials.

Great sleeves for your MTG card collection, each card fits snuggly and allows you to shuffle your card library with ease. It also adds a particular flair to your deck, in line with your personal mana inclinations. They are definitely more expensive than your run-of-the-mill transparent card sleeves, but you'll see and feel the difference the moment you start using them for your own cards.

An Experts Guide to Winning at Gin
An Experts Guide to Winning at Gin
by Cy Rice
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Some great material about Gin Rummy, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finding anything decent about Gin Rummy is difficult. I came by this book after substantial research and I was quite pleased about this find. It's a relatively thin book but packed with strategy tips you will not find easily elsewhere. To win at Gin, you have to forget what comes easily and think out of the box, this book offers good pointers to do so. Obviously practise makes perfect. One amusing thing about this publication is that the author talks about Gin Rummy in 1965 and with few tweaks ti could easily be about No Limits Texas Holdem today. It's hard to think that Gin was in the 60's what No Limits Texas Holdem is today. My take is that as long as there will be willing card players out there, there will always be great games to master. I Just wonder what it will be in 10 years time! However back to this publication, if you are serious about learning some decent Gin Rummy strategy, make sure to grab a copy of this book.
