About the playing cards
When it comes to playing cards, we are all used to the 'standard' sized cards. But if you, or someone you know, has limited or impaired vision, these kinds of cards could be difficult to read with the numbers and suits of cards. That's where the Superb Bridge Size cards come in useful.
Each card measures 58mm x 89mm. And as you can see from the pictures, the numbers and suits have a large print. The numbers are big enough to see, as are the suits. There are 2 'jokers' in the pack, marked as 'wild' cards in this deck. There is an extra card in the pack which gives you a bit of information about the cards and the contact details. The numbers can be easily seen and the King, Queen and Jack cards are easy to read too, with the letters standing out in bold red and black letters.
I like the feel of the cards too. They feel soft and sleek to the touch, and are strong enough to bend too. I find them easy to shuffle and deal out. As with all new playing cards, they are quite slippery to use to begin with. But this normally wears off after a few times of playing a few games with them. You can buy this pack of cards in either blue or red. I personally opted for the red pack. The cards are made out of cardboard and are not suitable for children under 36 months.
As I say, these cards are suitable for people with impaired vision and are suitable for children and adults alike. The actual cards themselves are the same size as your standard deck of cards, it's just the numbers and pictures on the cards that are enlarged.

I really like these cards. They're really easy to handle and play card games with. As I said earlier, they are easy to shuffle and deal out. I've played card games with other people too and they thought they were easy to handle too. They are easy to lay out on the table and pick up. If you like to play card games but miss doing so because of poor vision, or whatever reason, then these cards are really good to help you see what you're doing. The numbers and pictures, in both the red and black colours, are big and clear.
When I was looking at different websites to do with playing cards and card games, I was surprised. I couldn't believe the amount of stuff you could get out there and that playing cards is still so popular. There's all sorts of card games and tables etc you can buy. So when you think how a pack of cards have evolved over the years,it just proves that people still enjoy a game of cards. And of course, if you are with a team of players that like card games or are in some kind of club or tournament, I think these cards would certainly come in useful for people. I would highly recommend purchasing these cards, and they are cheap to buy too!

I have to admit that I am finally getting to the part of my life where I may very well need cards this size. I had no idea that they even existed. Thanks for sharing them with us all.

I once saw a group of people playing a card game with an oversized set of cards. These would be useful for many people.

A larger size card would make it easier for all of us that have arthritis in our hands. I grew up playing all kinds of card games, so these would me nice. Thanks, Louise.
