Are the green/brown cards the same card stock as the red/blue cards?All of my Bicycle Prestige cards were purchased for $5/deck or less. Either from Walgreens BOGO (poker size, regular index) or Amazon (two decks unboxed, bridge size in either standard and jumbo index). I prefer the bridge/jumbo versions.
Even though I have both, I've never directly compared them (and haven't used any poker size cards in our games for several years now).Are the green/brown cards the same card stock as the red/blue cards?
It’s a bit more involved. They are two distinct styles.Are the green/brown cards the same card stock as the red/blue cards?
Exactly the info I needed, thanks. I have played with both styles before but it has been a while. You pretty much summed up what I seem to remember. It’s a shame Amazon doesn’t have bridge size standard index in stock or that the jumbo index doesn’t have the yellow around pips for non-face cards.It’s a bit more involved. They are two distinct styles.
First there are the Bicycle Prestige Dura-Flex they sell at Target, Walmart’s, etc. These are the ones in the black box and have a different back design in red and blue. Then you have the Prestige that come as a two deck setup in green and purple.
The two feel different. The Duraflex type and are very very close to the feel of a paper card. Smoother and satiny in texture. Very flexible and only come in poker size.
The two deck Prestige setups feel exactly like Fournier cards (because they are) and have a rougher texture. Similar texture to a DaVinci card but a bit more flexible like Copags and more of a plastic feel than the Duraflex . Now to make things more confusing these deck were made in poker size as well as bridge and in jumbo or standard index.
The artwork in both is very similar and mimics Bicycles spore cards.
Hope that helps.View attachment 235166
Right on appreciate it. I'll probably stop by Walmart first to see if my opinion on plastic cards have changed before spending a lot on a deckA really easy to source quality plastic card I have tried is the Ace plastic cards available in red and blue at Walmart. They are made by Cartamundi. Also nice and available at Walmart are the Bicycle Prestige and they have a very nice box.
Now, if you are ok moving to the ergonomically superior bridge sized cards (y) :thumbsup: they are many option but you will have to order on Amazon or elsewhere online.
Here is the best deal in plastic cards I know off https://www.amazon.com/Cartamundi-100-Plastic-Setup-Standard/dp/B06Y3F8CST
Do you like standard or jumbo index?
