Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks yet again. It’s been a busy few weeks for me here but rest assured I have more coming. I have a lot of reviews in the ether waiting on a few details from creators so I can make accurate posts on the decks.

I will hopefully have some reviews for you next week.

Until then,


Fournier – Edicion Recuerda – Fundacion Reina Sofia (Remembrance Edition – Queen Sofia Foundation)

IMG_20170710_160011So I wouldn’t normally cover something quite like this but I received these cards as a momento from a transfer student that we had staying with us from Spain. Hence the Spanish. Sorry if I translated that incorrectly, Ines but I truly do appreciate the deck of cards.

Texan No.45 “Palmettos”

IMG_0701For the first post in the return to Deck Review I have decided to go with a deck that is uniquely Canadian.

Back in the 1970’s the International Playing Card Co. based out of Windsor, Ontario (and now Brampton, Ontario), designed and released a deck of playing cards that was not only uniquely Canadian but confusingly so. They launched the Texan No.45 decks lovingly nicknamed “Palmettos” in blue and red. Continue reading “Texan No.45 “Palmettos””

Reviews a Coming

IMG_0700I know this is starting to sound like a broken record but I wanted to let you know I have several reviews in progress but as part of the site’s reboot I am trying to dig a little further on these decks and contact creators about their decks.

Sometimes it takes some time to communicate and due to the nature of my job being a truck driver I am not available to post these reviews while I am on the road during the week.

Upcoming I have an oldie but something unique to the Canadian market. I also have a deck by Jackson Robinson of Kings Wild that’s his take on an older style USPCC deck.

Thanks for your patience once again.


Deck Review Update

Hey guys. I wanted to say hi to all the readers of this website. I appreciate all the continued support. It means a lot to me to see this blog get as much traffic as it does.

Obviously you have noticed a lack of updates here and this has been for a good reason. While I have not lost  interest in playing cards my focus has  shifted to my new technology/gaming website RedBlueGreen.ca. This is a bit of a rebirth of a blog I ran about 10 years ago. On my new website I record podcasts with some friends and write about news and products we have used. Feel free to pop on over and check the new site out. 

As for Deck Review I plan in the near future to bring this site out of hiatus and back to a semi-regularly updated site. I have hundreds of decks to review and would love to share my thoughts on them with you all. 

Again, thanks for hanging in there and I hope to share some more with you soon. 


Denexa Adventurer’s Pack

IMG_0588A rather new player in the playing card arena, Denexa has been producing plastic playing cards for the past few years and are trying to move in to the big time with the likes of Bicycle Prestige, Kem and Copag. Can they bring a good enough game to compete? Let’s take a look at an Adventurer’s Pack produced by Denexa.

FULL DISCLOSURE: Scott Nazelrod, President of Denexa Games contacted me and asked if he could send me a deck to review. I agreed and so here we are. Continue reading “Denexa Adventurer’s Pack”
