I was very much looking foward to this deck. I'm going to use it, however I feel a little disappointed in a few different ways.
First, while I've not looked through the enitre deck and 100 doesn't divide evenly by 3 perfectly, it seems like there are three copies of nearly all of the cyphers in this deck. Perhaps if I had read the description better I'd have noticed? In any case, there's a lot of duplicates aside from the numbers on the bottom.
I believe it was a great idea adding d6 and d100 rolls on the bottom of these cards, but I feel they missed a real oppertunity in not putting d20 rolls on the cards. While the GM doesn't roll in Cypher and I love that about the system, having d20 rolls on the cards could have been great for times when there's a group of people who want to play but forgot their dice. Or when rolling dice is less practical than drawing or cutting cards.
If this deck had d20 rolls on it, for example, I could pack the deck of cards and take it camping, and while on the car ride there (as long as I'm not the one driving) I could have used this deck, alone, to draw random d20 rolls for the players in the car. Or, at a picnick table the players could cut for a d20 roll. With 5 sets fo d20 rolls in a d100 deck, given time I could divide the deck up into 5 decks and let the players shuffle and draw themselves.
Giving us d6 and d100 rolls was smart. Leaving out d20 rolls I feel was a major missed oppertunity.
Sure, sure, its rare people will be without dice, but then why bother putting d6 and d100 rolls on the cards at all with that attitude?
I may buy other Cypher decks, and look forward to using this one. But, I find myself less excited about this than I had anticipated I would be, now that I have it.
Hopefully the edit and add in d20 rolls for future purchasers. (I would go as far as d4, d8, and maybe/maybe on d10... because they're not used in Cypher and this is indeed Cypher specific. But d20 is the core die to Cypher, so it does seem a miss opperunity.)
If it was only the d20 misisng thing, I'd probably gave this 4 stars. However, between the d20 missing when the idea crossed their mind to add dice, and the fact that there's so many repeats of the same cards aside from the numbers on the bottom making it seem the main reason for 100 cards is the d100 roll... I feel its a 3 star product. Though, I hope to have a lot of fun using it and perhaps my feelings will improve over time.
