Recently, I have been playing so many card games with my family. We mostly play poker (Texas Hold’em), so it is important to have cards that are easy to constantly shuffle. Also, it is really great to have cards that make a nice, crisp sound when you shuffle them.
Most of the cards that I used to play with were either standard Bicycle cards or cards brought home from casinos; these types of cards are good, but they are all about the same quality. I had never really considered one type of card to be better than others.
However, these Hoyle Cards are the easiest cards I have ever shuffled; also, the plastic they are made of is waterproof, so you can literally play with them anywhere. Finally, these cards are really cool because you can wash them if they get dirty for some reason.
The only drawback with these cards is that they are slick; because of the waterproof plastic, the cards can slip out of your hands. Therefore, I would not recommend these cards for fast, action card games such as Egyptian War.
It depends what card games you play the most, but if you play poker, I would highly recommend these cards.
