I finally received my advance copy of the reprinted 2nd edition!
The box issue was addressed and the cards came shrink wrapped so they no longer float around in the box where they can get damaged.
The problematic black edging is gone and now they have silver gilding which looks really nice! It was a total surprise to me. The black edging had made the cards stick together and when you peeled them apart it was getting damaged, and it also seemed to be easily damaged no matter what. The silver doesn’t have that problem, the cards are easily separated and shuffled and it seems a lot sturdier.
Another thing I noticed in the recalled set was that there was different shades of black on the card backs but in this one there is no evidence of that, everything is uniformly colored.
Overall I would say that I’m really happy with it!
You can order the new decks now straight through Schiffer:
They should be available again through Amazon again in a few weeks and also through your local sellers.
When I get more decks in I’ll offer some hand signed copies. I’ll update here when they are available.
Thank you to everyone for being so patient!!!
