Grooving to the idea that playing cards don’t have to be the same, blue and red bicycle decks you’ve seen since the beginning of gaming, mass produced time after time. They can be something more, stylish and functional pieces of miniature art that makes your game really stand out.
While these attractive decks are nice enough to be placed on a shelf and used as a display piece, they are made to be played. We got to check out their #02 deck, which is a darker black and white motif that reminds me of an eclipse. We adore the design and heavy duty, professional quality of the cards themselves. The only drawback of this particular deck is that each of the cards reads from one direction, which makes it difficult to count points when your trying to go quickly when playing games such as blackjack.
Something unique to One Widow, is that each deck comes with the standard 52 cards, plus two jokers, and a blank replacement card to stand in for the “one that gets away”. That lost or damaged card that ruins your game. Then, after putting your spare card in play you can go back to One Widow and grab a brand new replacement. Do we love it? Oh yes, a much better plan then buying a whole new, identical deck to replace a single card. (And why is it that the Ace of Spades is always vanishing on us?)
Check them out at One Widow.
