I purchased these cards as part of a project I did for my husband for Christmas. They are unique and fun because of the artistry, but also a good quality deck if you're planning to play cards with them. My husband loved the gift. The prints are definitely unique and best for adults. I would recommend these cards.

I love macabre things and although I am not an avid card player I can appreciate these cards. I actually asked for these for christmas thinking If I never used them I could frame a card or two or 52 and hang them on the wall as an instalation. I bought them for a poker playing friend who also loves strange art. Each card is really amazing and I originally thought the cards might repeat but there is a unique design for all 52 cards! The detail and story each card embodies is very intriguing and the art is tasteful in my opinion (there is full nudity). If you can respect unusual art or know someone that would get a good laugh out of these while playing cards, I'm telling you they won't dissapoint. And the quality of the cards is great as well; they are as sturdy if not sturdier than a lot of decks I've come across over the years. Would have been a bonus if the case was plastic and not just the normal cardboard type, but I seriously love them too much to care. I am so glad I accidently found out I was getting them as a gift as well as giving them.
