The number cards still are not good. Is there a special reason why you want to greyed out pips in a non-standard configuration? My suggestion, as they are cards, just copy the standard Bicycle layout. They work well. They are cards.
The court cards are better, but still are the deal breaker. Unfortunately, they don't push me to the "buy" side yet. Any reason why you're not drawing them with a black line? They still look like shapes rather than an image. That's my honest feedback.
The old back design used to really look good on screen, but the print looks dull and the gold color didn't provide good contrast on the dark background.
After trying a few combinations of color change etc., it was evident that the blank space will kill it even if a light background is used. This bcame the basis of updating the card back.
I understand it is a non-standard configuration but once the deck in front, it does take not more than a few minutes to get used to this new layout for playability purpose, and it is still a different and unique design. I'm working with the same designer who worked with me on Ganjifa deck, and both of us, and a few others in our circle are still giving thumbs up on the third iteration rather than the second. In fact, the sentiment that was expressed by RichK after showing a few court cards (second iteration) was expressed by a few close friends as well. All said, I thank you for giving the feedback. I believe this deck has come too far only because there were people like you and others on UC etc. who were there with the critical eye. Thanks for that.
