I ask you! WTF???

Leave it alone, seriously. There are way too many more worthy decks out there.

You, nicky, are an Earth Goddess (subspecies: shopping mall). Warm heart. Funny. It will freeze your bones.

Seriously. I bought it and sold it in short order for exactly this reason. What with being an earth goddess myself (subspecies: goodwill thrift store).

It's all borders and no pix. You really DO need a magnifying glass for this one. If they bring out a mini, I will probably shoot myself.

This thread has been my greatest source of humour for today...thanks Kat and gregory

She's right though. And just imagine trimming this deck....

AAAARRRGH!

Didn't you notice the original poster said they wouldn't buy it UNTIL THEY'D BEEN DE-ENABLED???

You just de-enabled them.

That means they will buy.

Oh, and I noticed that your de-enablement didn't include that they'd have to rush out and buy classical music, Rimski-Korsakov's Sheherazade, because it is programme music to specifically go with the story-cycle that the deck is based on, and no one will ever be able to use it without the right music?

O and nobody mentioned the card backs. For why? Here´s that last 20%;

Yep, you guessed, it those topsy turvy top/bottom LoS duplications of another card. In this case it is the Wheel of Fortune, which - while we´re on the subject of irrelevant - is a pond...

You can't READ to Scheherezade. It's far too noisy.... This is all VERY BAD.....
