flip flop playing cards - worth it or not?

Recommended Posts

So the mini ones are cheap enough - but super mini - are they worth it? Playing cards while drinking and talking is fun - but is it impossible with such little cards? I don't know if it is worth buying the big ones though b/c I'd have to get 72 packs!

Don't do it. We got them and I think DH and I were the only people that used them...and that wasn't even until all our other guests left and it was just the 2 of us.

I thought about getting cards also but to be honest I dont think anyone is going to pay attention to them,,,theres so many other things to do while you're in a different country, that I doubt many people will use the cards.

This is what I was going to say...my sister thought they were a great idea because she went to a wedding in Texas this last weekend and they provided oot bags and had playing cards in there and their flight home was delayed overnight so they spend hours in the airport and she said the cards came in handy...

So now I am going to add them. chances are there won't be flight trouble, but if so it would be nice and who can't use cards at home??

The cheapest I can find the regular size are $2.49, where as the cheapest I can find the mini ones is $0.69, which in my case is a difference of almost $132. Maybe I should just find some other cool cards.

I went to Family Dollar a few days ago & they have the standard size deck of playing cards for $1 each.

FI also has poker parties every now & then & we found multi packs at BJ's. I can't remember how many were in 1 box but I know the price was right cuz he bought 2 boxes.

So you may want to check around.

Oh, also check ebay.

I ordered metalic playing cards from OTC and they were $7.95 for 12 I think. And they are full size. I would def. recommend getting full size cards over the ones the size of your thumb.

I second this. I don't think people will use the mini cards. We also ordered the metallic cards for my daughter's OOT bags and they are nice. However, I ordered the dominoes from OTC not realizing they are the mini version and was disappointed with them.
