These cards can't be used to play Backgammon. The cards are numbered 2-12. But in Backgammon, you need each die individually - a 2-6 roll is very different than a 4-4 roll. I was expecting the fifteen combinations of two six-sided dice. And a "1" card isn't included to do a proper 1-6 set either.
This is great, just buy them! I used it while introducing two new players to roleplaying along with a group of players who have experience. I did it for a short campaign and it is just a blast. It really gets new players into actually roleplaying in the game, as using theese cards sort of puts them in the right mindset. Lets them act out their characters a bit before the game starts.
I highly recomend getting and reading "Backstory Cards: Techniques Guide". It is free and gives great tips on how to get the most use out of theese cards. A good tip is to leave the setting elements somewhat open, that way, the players get to build your world with you....

There was a problem with a very low image quality of the print-at-home pdf files. The publisher fixed the error immediately after being notified. Now we can enjoy the fantastic graphics in all their glory. Stellar user service; keep up the good work!
I got this and all of the rest of the expansions / main deck after seeing one of the cards in the Alleyman Tarot. This deck is wonderfully weird and I'm looking forward to using it. The colors are muted and there is female nudity. The only things that could make this deck better are male nudity (Equal Opportunity, eh?) and some pops of color. The base deck along with the expansions allow you to personalize your deck and switch out and replace cards. Looking forward to the final expansion.
I like the tables. I bought the game after these were the standard, so I don't know how they compare to the originals, but I'm sure they are an improvement. They are easy to read, and a great compliment to the game.
The heavywieghts are my favorite division. If you love boxing, then you have to have this set. I am glad that this set came in my bundle. The cards are well made and I like the design over the original game.
This is a good way to start your game off. It has everything you need to get started. The only compaint I have is that they need to put in a simple game board. Luckily, you can find one Board Game Geek that works perfectly.
