Default Plastic Cards

I host a home game once a month or so. Is it worth the extra money to get a few decks of plastic cards instead of the usual bicycle?

It's certainly worth the money to get one set-up and try them out to see if your crowd likes them.

There is no doubt that they will outlast the usual bicycle deck and be more economical over time.

Or maybe 36 decks? (I got them at .30 each in bulk - I'll give some to my friends). Thanks for the input. Love that pic of yours. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I think Copag's are absolutely worth the money. KEM's are more expensive and I don't think they feel that much better than the Copag. Once you've played with all-plastic, paper cards feel awful.

I've used Kems and have some Copags now.

However, if you can get cards cheap in bulk, I've always thought there was something nice about starting the evening by breaking the seal on new decks of cards and playing with them for the evening.

Purely personal preference, here.

The ones that I got claim to feel identical to Kems. 36 packs for $12 - so even if they suck, I can always give them away.

Gotcha

12.95 with $20 shipping. Still, at less than a buck a deck, it's not horrible

Yeah - considering they dont go bad, and a standard deck of bicycle cards is $1.59 - heck - I can give them to my nephews to make card houses out of.
