Comments about SPY DECK:

The packaging is attractive, as are the cards themselves, but the cards are so full of information that it's hard to read the number and suit, so they're not really useful as playing cards.

The information is interesting, but not actually useful. The images only preview one card, and I expected the other cards to be more like the previewed card (which was of a Caesar Cipher). The maps were amusing, but card after card of terms and definitions got a bit old.

The recipient seemed to like them, but I doubt they'll get much use.

        Bought this for my dad last year because he loves spy movies etc. He found the cards to be very interesting...and I still catch him flipping through them. Handy for a game also. I plan on purchasing it for my father-in-law this Christmas.

                I bought to give as a xmas gift. I will have them rate after xmas. But I can say that I liked it enough to purchase for them and can't wait to give it.
