I can attest to that I can't play with my Platinum Acetates because of it Love the security ink though, all cards should have it.Once you go bridge, you never go back.
They do look like a good size, not too big but easier to see. I'll have to get my self some for Christmas.I LOVE the large index. I'm not such a huge fan of jumbo index cards. They are just the right size in my opinion.
New players in our league tend to have shuffling issues with the Prestige (or Copags, or Modianos, or Kems, depending on the host), and there's invariably a "these cards are so slippery" comment at some point. But they eventually get used to it.A lot of my players have trouble shuffling my cards. I've always attributed it to the plastic but maybe it's more so because they're unaccustomed to poker sized cards? I've gotten complaints about the "cheap plastic" (one player said "I could bring my good Bicycles") but never the size, but I wonder if they just don't cognitively recognize the size difference and thus don't bring it up.
I have the poker sized version of these. If the bridge size are like the poker sized ones, they are very similar, but are more square. See this post for my review of them. I also have a review of the Fournier "Congress" cards (bridge size/jumbo index) here. In my opinion, they are very similar to the Prestige...perhaps not quite as "gritty".EDIT: Hmm... http://www.playingcardsandgames.com...rd-Index-Playing-Cards-Green-Brown_p_248.html
Any one have any of these? Are they like these "Walgreen's" Bicycle Prestige cards? Are they like "regular" Fournier bridge cards?
