Re: new Gemaco Gem Pro cards
I played with the Gem Pro's a couple of nights and want to write down my opinion on them:
Pro's: They look good. More important, the printing is coated so it's not gonna wear of easily. They are not slippery. They shuffle easily.
Cons: The sides of the cards get dirty fast. They are a bit stiff and have some memory. There are better cards out there that bend back easier. The worst is that there are tiny fibers coming loose from the sides.
Conclusion: I'm a playing card collector, so I love them for their looks and feel. Are they worth the money? I would say no. For $32,50 you can get a doubledeck of pokersized KEM's wich are better or bridge size even cheaper. If you want Gemaco's (I do), get the 5-star.
