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.
The plastic cards are usable and without any major flaws. For those looking for durable use, the strong and water proof material is a good choice. I'm using it for camping and travel so those matter. 2 Jokers are included. Some downsides exist. The symbols are dark, uncolored, and small. The stronger material would make marking cards easy. While wet, the cards stick together and must dry before being shuffled. The only stylized symbol is the one on the Ace of Hearts seen in the primary image. The box the cards come in is hard to open and will fall apart quickly given standard use. And then there is the issue of finger sized rubber scrub brushes showing as the thumbnail picture when this is ordered: I have no clue about that.
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.
