Unboxing Malifaux - Classic Fate Deck

There are now quite a wide variety of Fate Decks available for the game of Malifaux and though I don't have them all I like to do overviews of the ones that I do. As with anything opinion on styles of art is somewhat subject so I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions about whether you like them or not...

This particular Fate Deck comes in a fairly standard card container. Here's a picture of the case art before we look at the cards themselves... well as a picture of the card rear which I'm obviously only going to need to show once...

The cards themselves are an actual card material rather than the somewhat slippery plastic that some of the other recent decks have been made of.

The Red and Black Jokers

The Suits
The one to ten cards are fairly standard with the card symbol simply being repeated the appropriate number of times and the eleven, twelve and thirteen numbered cards rather cleverly have the number also appear as a J, Q or K for the Jack, Queen and King. Each suits eleven, twelve and thirteen cards are different but are in a classic card deck style rather than being a Malifaux related picture of some kind.

Here's a picture of each suit in turn with a close up of the picture cards below each.

Though it's easy to miss there are also markings for Weak, Moderate and Severe in the card borders on the bottom and top edges. You can see the tiny dashes in the close-up pictures below.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

    1. Card. Not that super slippy plastic that the last few new decks have been made of.

  2. Except they claim it's plastic on their website. So frustrating

  3. Hullo,
    I realise I'm something of a Resurrectionist on this thread, but could you possibly give the dimensions of an individual card?
