5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and practical, but a bit flimsy perhaps., 18 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Golden Universal Tarot Deck (Cards)
These cards were quite nice. You get the basic image of the Universal deck but then this additional richness of the black border and gold in places. You get the gold on some of the features of the main image, or as a dotty background, and on the corner motif and number at the bottom. The backs of the cards do not have any gold - they are a black background with a heavy goldy-mustard colour leafy swirl pattern. Yes the gold isn't uniform and looks 'flaky' in places, but I think that adds to it. It doesn't look or feel too opulent or vulgar. With that slightly flaked/used look I wouldn't be afraid to use these as my everyday deck, but they are still quite beautiful for a Universal-style deck of cards. I think the black border works well, regardless of the gold.
They are your standard sort of card size - possibly a bit more long-and-thin than some squarer decks. They fit in the hand nicely.

I'd say that perhaps some people might be expecting a slightly thicker or stiffer card, given the gold/special aspect of the deck - whereas they are in fact standard, fairly thin and bendy cards. The edges will separate a little or peel or catch and look worn after a while.
If you are after a fancy display deck or something to look grand or big or to use for show - these aren't the ones. If you want some practical, usable, everyday cards that are a bit different and pretty, these are the cards for you.

Personally I think they are worth it and are the nicest deck I've had so far, hence the 5 stars. I've no desire to buy another deck or change.
