While this isn't the typical flashy cardistry deck that I tend to prefer, this deck of cards is nicely made indeed. The tuck case especially (not something I tend to care about) is a joy to look at and handle. It has a great matte finish, beautiful metallic ink that shines with the light (and more so than just about any tuck case I've ever seen, considering the interior is wall-to-wall metallic ink), and the back is even embossed top to bottom! The cards themselves are as advertised - luxury casino-style playing cards. I tend to think of them as my "cool cards for everyday", rather than strictly for cardistry like with Virtuosos, Orbits or the like. I suppose I would say that these are a more "casino" version of Cherry Casino cards. Give them a chance!
