Critical Overview Of The Most Popular Playing Cards

May 2, 2008
There are many different kinds of people who purchase playing cards today. Those who want to bring the feel of a casino home, others who want to just get a deck to start playing, and some who enjoy the serious styles that are available. No matter which one is your own preference, Poker Stars Direct offers four different styles that are available with several sub categories within each one.

100% Plastic

There are six styles of playing cards within this category that includes Gemaco, Copaq, Kem, Modiano, DaVinci, and just plain cheap kinds. Obviously, it just depends on your preference, but they are all extremely inexpensive for the normal costs you would originally find in a retail establishment. Definitely the kind you want to purchase when big groups will be playing for hours on end.

Standard

Many people still ask what standard playing cards are and the best example to share is the company Bee. Their are both jumbo styles and regular but most everyone has heard of them before and what their cards offer. If this is the kind you are happy with they offer both blue and red colors to purchase all under five dollars. If a hundred and sixteen years in the business isn't good enough for you, these cards might not be for you.

Licensed

For those of you who don't know what kinds of playing cards these are, they're basically anything that has someone or something on the front. Like, for example, the Doyle Brunson's cards with pictures of him all over the front of each card. Since cards are one of the items which people purchase most of the time, Poker Stars Direct has several of them for you to choose from within their site. Surprisingly, they aren't any more then the regular kinds, which gives them a little more value.

Retired Casino Playing Cards

If you are looking for ones that have been used, these are the ones you want to have. They are a hot commodity everyday and can give everyone a taste of casinos from around the country. Even big restaurant and souvenir companies like Hard Rock Cafe have their own retired cards available to be purchased. You have to keep an eye on these throughout the week because if you blink, they might be out of stock on the Poker Stars Direct website.

Overall Opinion

There are so many choices available here we can't see anyone not being able to decide on a deck to purchase. Some have style and flare, some are traditional, and then the rest are just regular "they do the trick" playing cards to get everyone playing their favorite games. If we remember correctly, there wasn't anything over seven dollars, but you'll have to see for yourself when you get time.

Our favorite had to have been the Doyle Brunson set just because he is a national icon in the Texas Holdem arena. Another one of the many things to distract your opponents if they're for yourself, or just another great gift to purchase some of your friends. Either way, we don't see how you could go wrong, especially with their secure website and information throughout the website.
