1.0 out of 5 starsJust don’t... they’re hard to use.

So the cards shuffle well bc they’re plastic...but the texture of the cards makes it hard to deal them... I do not recommend these. I bought them with the hopes that they would survive if ever wet (strange family, strange circumstances) but they were very useless, as I already said, hard to deal due to texture.
Shipping from China definitely puts some delay on it and took close to a month to receive, but did actually arrive before the estimate and are super awesome. These are some of the coolest cards I have ever purchased, and the writing is almost "ghost" like unless you're viewing at the right angle which makes them almost like trick cards but definitely increases the privacy when playing games. Since they are plastic they are a bit more prone to feeling sticky in humid environments, but nothing that a quick shuffle can't fix to loosen the cards back up again. I'm not sure where the "Gold Foil" part comes in though as there is not any that I can see on these at all.
I paid very little for these cards. Less than 2 bucks. I had over $35 in one order, so they came with free shipping.
I have to warn you that these cards are very hard to read if your room is not well lit. But man they are so cheap and their quality is 100 times better than their paper counter parts. What else can I complain? They feel very similar to paper cards in hands. They are just as easy to shuffle as paper cards. However, they won't wear as much.
I am amazed at how many people are on here complaining about the color of this product. Yes they are a little difficult to see but I am guessing that because the picture looks a little mor like dark grey/silver with black letters/numbers, that you just assumed it was so?? READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION These cards are black! It says it pain as day. No you can’t play them in the dark or by the camp fire as some have mentioned but they are great cards and you can see them as long as you have lights on. Also if you are having a problem shuffling these cards then maybe you need a lesson? I’m not a pro just someone who has owned a deck of cards my whole life and I had no problems. There is nothing wrong with these cards. If you have poor vision, you may want to order a different color for sure. Over all for the price they are great... bad ass in fact!
I ordered two packs of black cards, and they were worth the wait all the way from China! They are nice and thick and easy to hold & shuffle and they're really neat-looking. I like that they can get wet and still be perfectly fine.
I planned on taking them camping, but normally we play cards outside at night and there's no way anyone would be able to see the faces of the cards. But for home use in well-lit areas, these are awesome.
I saved one deck for my husband and me, and the other we gave to my dad and he loves them.
