to make it more durable and reistant against drop/drip/wear and tear damages use a plastic window sheet an inch larger to protect it.
usable for many adventures
does fit with the official D&D tile sets, so is adaptable
It took a little bit to understand the play (I highly recommend reviewing the demo video on Youtube); but getting into it, I realized that the play and flow is a lot like SPLENDOR, but with more interesting mechanics between fulfilling orders and scoring. There's a LOT happening with each play, and it's a little hard to anticipate what others might do, but still after several plays this DTCards game is on a prized position in my shelf with the $50+ BGG Darlings.
If you like SPLENDOR, check this out. It might be the Splendor-killer....
**The Good**: It is great to have all cards including the latest errata for this enjoyable game.
**The Bad**: Unfortunately, a fair amount of the cards are not centered hence one margin is very small whereas on the other side the margin is big (I am looking at you "Blessing of the Gods"). It doesn't affect game play, but sometimes cards were being replaced just because the original color was wrong (I am looking at you again "Blessing of the Gods"), and you really wonder which one is worst: the off-color (barely noticeable unless someone point it out to you) or the off-centered issue (quite noticeable without any intervention).
I have bought other products from DriveThruCards (GM Apprentice Cards), and these do not have such quality issue, only this gigantic set had problem....
Love this product, love the cover art too. I love this concept, I really like the changing 'battlefield' mechanic - highest card and lowest card wins is fun but what to play when second highest wins... lots of fun bluffing.
I thought the rules were relatively straightforward but after reading other reviews suggest checking out the Cards and Quests YouTube videos to anyone who wants to see how the game is played. "D-Inifinit plays Cards and Quests" is a whole adventure and very funny it is too.
I also have the Cards and Quests Bestiary and recommend you get that too....
Delighted with this product. I have the Cards and Quests rules, which I heartily recommend you check out too.
You can never really have enough monsters in your bestiality and this book does a great job of providing you with new and classic encounters of all power levels. I like the chart at the beginning, in particular, which gives you a feel for the challenge rating as is prevalent in other RPGs such as D&D. With Skirmisher you are always guaranteed a quality product at a reasonable price and this is no exception. I can easily see myself using these monsters in other games even when I am not playing Cards and Quests. Excellent purchase, well done all involved....
-1 for the atrocious cropping that has essentially cut off the top on all cards, with the vast majority having no boarder at the top at all
-1 for the the healthy amount of cards that also aren't centered left to right
-1 for being weak enough overall that I have decided that printing errata sheets and passing those out to players is better than generally using these cards
+1 matching original cards in feel and look in terms of stock and printing
+1 for the speed and efficiency in which the cards were delivered, the shipping and delivery were amazingly fast
i realize they mention a variance in the trimming, but perhaps displaying an example with no top boarder, where the lettering is essentially against the card edge, would help people make a better decision on spending $23....
If you are unfamiliar with the furry fandom, or are new to fandom, buy the second volume first. The first volume did create some fantastic laughs and terrible jokes for one of my furry friends, her boyfriend, her brother, and myself (I am a furry as well). However, my friend and I found this pack to have a little too many strange sexual things that don't represent the entire fandom well. It does have fantastic cards in this volume that are not in the second volume; but, I would suggest waiting for the second volume to be officially released and buy it first....
Excellent set of cards. Only issue I noticed was the cut was not centered, leaving very little border at the top and extra at the bottom. Merely an aesthetic complaint that does not affect the usability of the cards.
A simple and satisfying to play game that uses a neat alternative to rolling dice.
Using cards means players have the option of succeeding when it counts. The battle mechanics introduce a fun meta-mechanic where the players are trying to bluff the GM and guess what they have in their hand.
