    The size of cards

    Post  Violet on Tue Sep 28, 2010 1:57 am

    Does it bug you how the size of different decks vary so much? I have a huge deck which is impossible to shuffle, right down to the really ridiculously miniscule size which you can barely see let alone shuffle, is normal playing card size the ideal size or do you prefer larger or smaller cards?

    That is my only beef about the Sacred Circle tarot - cards too large to shuffle.

    pardon my ignorance folks,
    :blush: :blush: :blush: :blush: :blush:
    but if there is a white band (or whatever colour) around the edge of the cards how bout snipping it off?
    clever clogses like you lot should be able to find ssome tape or felt/ ssliver pen to reseal any edges...

    hi sparkly

    i'm willing to do quite alot of things with my cards but i never ever will cut them...

    and yes size can be problem.. some decks are in good size for shuffling but i feel i miss on the images as there are so many small details that are being lost as too small...

    Hi Norseman
    How do you manage? I tend to put them in a heap on the floor and swirl them around, or sometimes just make random piles mixing them up that way
