Little Deck of Horrors
I received my order today. I was surprised to see that the deck opened from the side (think Nocs Gen 2). It is something that I was like "meh" at first on, but then after looking over the whole box I really enjoyed the almost VHS tape 'feel' to the looks. Each face card depicts famous monstrosities that we all know and love/fear. The overall aesthetic of the cards feels very retro 80's horror film which is a nice touch.
Overall, the deck handles well. The cards I'm assuming are manufactured by Cartamundi as they came pre-wraped in cellophane and have an almost greasy feel to them. The stock itself is very thick, so I have high hopes they will last for quite a while. I'm not certain I'm a fan of the stock yet, but so far so good. They look amazing for flourishing and magic and would be perfect for performances on Halloween due to the aesthetic appeal and potential story telling attached.
I highly recommend you pick these up if you are interested in something different to add to your collection, if you are a fan of old school horror movies, or are looking to try something different then the normal USPC stock.
I finally got these in the mail today. The backs are not the best, but still decent. I'm also not a huge fan of the box opening up from the side. I like to keep the boxes pretty clean and the tab that keeps it shut is already creased from opening it up maybe 3 times. What gets me is (1) how slick the cards are. They are the slickest cards I own. It's been a struggle handling them up to this point, but overall I feel it will make me a better handler. (2) The face cards look absolutely sick, each depicting a different famous monster. I absolutely love these cards and have no regrets in snagging them.
