Wow. That looks pretty cool! Any idea about the age of the deck?

I did found their website online. If they still use this deck, maybe they would be willing to sell brand new ones...? :D

Awesome find, Victor! A very nice deck indeed...interesting that you found it for the Sky Dancer Casino as Dazzleguts posted a deck with the same courts for Casino Regina in the North America thread of Worldwide Time Machine.

viewtopic.php?f=39&t=5413&start=20..

Roope, if they are still are using them, I doubt you could get an unused deck, but you could probably get a used one with the corners rounded off like Victor's. I am definitely interested in finding a deck as I like those courts :ugdance:

My Casino Regina deck came in a plain Gemaco box instead of a casino box, and it was unused. I had a second one that I sold so they don't seem too rare. Both were thrift store finds here in Canada. They have an interesting almost pebbled surface that glides very well.

From what I remember when I first found and researched this deck there were a few different First Nations casinos that used this court pattern. The pattern itself is called Arrowhead due to the spade ace.

Will we be seeing more of this collection?

Nice one, Victor!

For anyone who doesn't know - Canada uses "First Nation" where in the states we say "Native American" or American Indian.

So... you're asking if we can give YOUR thread preferential treatment? :mrgreen:

Seriously though, this is the correct section for it. And the less we put in New & Custom, the more traffic other sections (like this one) will get.

Hi!
It's not really a new deck (although I just added the Icons Imperial recently thanks to Rappy!), I am very excited about this:

Solid mahogany box with lid, made to measure by Lorenzo's friend in Sweden, all thanks to him! Fits 36 decks, tight but not too much and perfect design to put the decks in and out easily. It can be displayed vertically as a shelf if desired.

It's really great! Gonna be difficult to select 36 favorites though.

Every deck I open makes your sealed one more valuable. You're welcome.

Am away from home but wanted to check in here.
Very nice box! I pick up boxes at garage sales and thrift stores but fitting the decks in, and getting them out again, can be a challenge. One that worked especially well is a nice looking long box I found that has a hinged lid and holds one row of decks, 4 deep. I can't remember how long the row is...maybe 8 decks long? The box houses my early fave vintage and antique decks, some of which I recently swapped out. I agree it can be really hard to pick favourites.


Very nice finds jo213. I am curious to see what the Firehost cards look like. If they are open could you show them?


I've found a few decks in my travels and will post them here when I get back.
