"I wanted to take a new approach on how the cards are used and bring them to a more usable and modern design," he says. I'm not sure how new the approach is for "how the cards are used" — I don't see any Helvetica-based games he's invented — or how much more "usable" these are. (They're certainly more usable than the set of oval-shaped Umbra cards I got as a gift once, though.) I do agree the design is more modern, almost to a fault — I mean, I'm all for minimalism, but something about taking the stem off the club seems a step too far! A nice, graphically strong addition to your games chest, though, and only $10.
