I had originally given this deck 4 stars. I'm giving it 5 stars based on the update below.
This a review of the deck quality and shipment. I'm not reviewing the game; if you like Speed, you'll like this.
After posting my review, I received an email stating that a deck box was supposed to be shipped with my order. I received a clear, plastic card box about a week later. I wasn't expecting one and I hope this above and beyond level of customer service is just their "regular" customer service.
I also noticed that there is a link for the pdf rules right under Morgan's picture. It's entirely possible that I missed that the first time around.
My initial review of the cardstock quality was based on me just holding the card in my hands. After comparing it to one of my Android: Netrunner cards, they feel very similar. I still recommend sleeving these cards though; multiple games of speed are going to be rough on these cards.
On it's own, I still think this deck is four stars (an option for better cardstock would bump that up to five). After being contacted and shipped a card box - that they could have easily said nothing about - I really want to give a six.
Ordered this pack because I wanted to see quality. Cardstock is okay; better than a standard business card, but you're going to want to sleeve these if you plan on playing more than a small number of games. I'm only bringing this up because of the frenetic pace of this game. I think the cardstock is fine for a board game where you're not handling the cards much.
This is the second POD card game I've purchased (the other was an FFG game), so I wasn't expecting air-pocketed, Bicycle card quality.
The cards arrived in a padded envelope. No card box (wasn't expecting one) and no rules sheet (not surprised, but a little disappointed).
Overall I'm pleased with my purchase; it's more or less just what I expected from a POD format.
This game was OOP for a long time and I'm happy to have it available again. I hope Cheapass Games has a revival here (U.S. Patent No. 1, Get A Life, other non Doctor Lucky/Zombie games) and would like to see old and new games available.
