Description

78 cards, packaged together in a 5 piece set. The deck itself is housed in its own two part, lidded cardboard box. The whole set, including the cards, is housed together in a long two part, lidded cardboard box.

The five parts of the set are:

-- The deck itself
-- A very large, full color fold-out
-- A LWB
-- A 150 page, soft cover companion book
-- An additional book, "G: The Royal Maze: Guide to the Game of Destiny," 60 pages, soft cover

The cards measure 11.8 cm tall x 7.7 cm wide.

The card stock is flexible, with a mostly matte finish. The backs are very smooth and slightly shinier than the fronts. The fronts have a very slight texture that you can't see, but can feel if you run your fingers over the cards.

The back design is non-reversible, though you'd have to be really looking at the corners to be aware of whether a card was upright or reversed when looking at the back.

Suits are Serpents (Wands), Pears (Cups), Blades (Swords), and Stones (Pentacles).

The minor arcana just pip cards (non-scenic).

All of the major arcana have been renamed. The major arcana are unnumbered.
