BAD ART. Save your money! Get WotC free download! Jun 8, 2007
I don't like to give bad reviews on anything, but I feel that this one is justified and will do someone some good.
PROS: (1) It is universal in that it can be used in any fantasy game. (2) Comes in a box (ignore this site's "Hardcover"; that's misleading).
CONS: (1) Bad, bad art...plain...generic...dull...and yucky. (2) Way over priced for 22 cards (about 2 cards for a buck). This should not sell for more than $5 (and even less if you have a $3.99 S/H fee).
Other options: Wizards of the Coast has a free downlaod of 52 cards (go to the WIZARDScom site and type in "Deck of Many Things"...it should be the first match...scroll to the middle of the page) with solid art work. If you print them on stock paper, you'll be in good shape (even better if you put them in a plastic sleeve). The price of printing all of these is less than a $1...and you get much better art work...and you get 150% MORE product.
Even if WotC did not have a superior option, I would still strongly recommend that you not buy this box of cards.
