I ordered 3 of these decks, one to play with and 2 for future use.

This deck is called The Ultimate Deck and it is exactly that, hands down the most beautiful playing card deck I have ever seen. I receive compliments from everyone who handles them, both the cards themselves and also the intricate box they are included in.

You will not be disappointed with this deck!

This Ultimate Deck is the most unusual & unique deck that I have purchased so far . The beautifully embossed black tuck box is elegant and stands alone . I had so much fun looking at each and every one of this creative kaleidoscope of cards . I bought two decks just from how amazing they looked in the D&D shopping ad. The real thing is a pleasure to hold and handles like a dream. Well done D&D !

I just received this deck in the mail a couple days ago. I was so excited about their arrival; I constantly checked the mail box. At first, I couldn't even get myself to open the deck because the box was just too beautiful. Finally, curiosity overtook. The perforation on the stamp definitely did make the box easier to open. I loved how every card was different. I also enjoyed looking for the number of suits in the pictures. You can spend hours looking at the deck and never get bored.

I got the uncut sheet and it is AMAZING. The sheet looks great and comes with the deck, which has great handling.
I HIGHLY recommend the uncut sheet. Any other uncut sheet wouldn't have the amazing color and personality this one has in each of its 56 parts.
Great Product. Very Unique. I LOVE IT.

About two months ago I bought a deck of these cards and got straight down to using them. THEY'RE GORGEOUS! I spent about an hour just looking at them, then another hour playing around with fans, flourishes etc. all are slick to perform, the quality is amazing! They have started to get a bit tattered after months of use but still perform great, which amazes me!
In fact, I love them so much I will be ordering the uncut sheet soon, which includes another deck! (Which I'm absolutely chuffed about) so I will have some beautiful wall art and also a beautiful new deck!
All in all, this is probably my favourite deck of cards ever, which have beautiful design and handle fantastically.
A MUST BUY!

This deck is a must have for collectors. It is such an awesome piece of art containing even more awesome pieces of art. I have the uncut sheet framed and hung near the entrance of my house and it never fails to cause my guests to stop and stare. Having owned the uncut for almost a year now, every time I look at it, I would see something new and wonder how I missed that. Its just like reading a magic book over and over again. I rate it 6 spades

Everything about this deck of cards is beautiful; so much so, that it was days before I broke open the deck. I almost didn't... but I have a philosophy that a thing which is meant to be used, and is not, is an affront to the craftsman. So I cracked that seal.
The box is gorgeous, with its black-on-black raised design, and a gold glyph I keep staring at, trying to read. Even the "tax stamp" is beautiful, and after cutting it, I stuck it back together and saved it.
Then the cards: silken to the touch, each one an individual piece of art. Each one a story to tell yourself as you look over them. I'm not certain you could play with this deck... I, at least, would be far too distracted by the imagery.
Almost immediately upon shuffling the deck, some of my cards became dirty and scratched from the surface I used. And you know what? I'm fine with that. Because they are cards, and meant to be handled.
Anyway: I have a lovely, uncut sheet that is waiting for a frame, and will soon be on my wall.
If you love cards, trust me, order a pack. Use them. Stare at them. Whatever you want. Because they are definitely worth the cost.
I wonder if I can get them by the case?

I have only recently gotten into cards...and have been all over the web looking for unique decks. I saw these and took a few days to consider wether or not to buy them. Finally, I decided that I definitely needed these for my collection! They came the other day and I immediately opened them. I was so amazed by them. They are some of the best, if not the best, cards I have ever come across. I never knew that playing cards could be so beautiful and amazing! I don't want to use them for card tricks as I am afraid that one of my friends might rip them, so I will just use them to show off. Thanks to Dan and Dave for creating such a beautiful deck of cards! I am glad that I got them!

The most beautiful and unique deck of cards. My girlfriend bought this for me knowing how enamored I am with everything associated with cards. The deck is stunning. Each painting or illustration is an interpretation of each individual card, including the two jokers. The tuck case is exquisite. As you may know, the designs are done by an advertising company that makes high end design for alcohol branding. They obviously brought the same level of quality to this project as every other.

If you see a deck similar to this but with gilded edges, say on Ebay or elsewhere, that is the deck sold directly by Stranger and Stranger in a commemorative box for two hundred dollars. This is exactly the same deck, without the commemorative box set, and without gilded edges. It's the same artwork and same cards.

What am I going to do with cards I can't play with? Well, I'm planning to cut my own mat and construct my own gilded frame to display them. I did not purchase the uncut sheet which probably would have been easier to mat and frame, but I feel each card is interesting enough to mat individually. Hopefully pictures to follow soon.

Dear Ultimate,
I think we need to start spending more time apart. Every time I look at you, my mind wanders over your many
various features and I lose track of what I am supposed to be doing. You have a power over me and I need to
begin to figure out how to resist your visual temptations. Every part of you has an incredible story to tell. Did I make a
mistake bringing you into my life? Sorry but I will just have to leave you hanging.
