Hello from Belgium

Unread postby kat11366 » Thu May 25, 2017 12:01 pm  

I've been interested in playing cards for a long time, but never got around to collecting them...till now and stumbling upon this forum has definitely wet my appetite .
Next to find heaps of interesting info, I hope to be able to lay my hands - literally- on some decks I really like...and I am discovering more and more of those.

Heya Kat!

If you are going to buy some stunning playing cards I do recommend:
http://jpplayingcards.co.uk. (located in Leeds, UK)
https://www.cartesmagie.com. (Located in France)
https://spielkartenshop.com. (Located in Germany)

With them you should get shipping cheap and all of them have a wide variety of selection. One deck that I would recommend getting is Stockholm17's Gemini decks as they honestly are the best designed decks I have ever seen. But the selection of amazing decks is a large one at the market at 2017 and you should find some of them from those sites to start :)

Also I recommend cheking out the Buy and Sell section of UC, as some members there sell decks for very competitive prices and you might find decks that are out of stock on many sites.

Cheers and welcome!

I dream of a world where wars are fought only by having dance offs. I also dream that a Finnish playing card designer would exist. The former seems more likely to happend.
