For many taort enthusiasts, a variety of Waite-Smith decks is a foundation for their collection. There are generally two types of W-S packs: those that are recolored using Pamela Colman Smith's original line drawings and those that are completely redrawn with new artwork. The Radiant is a complete redrawing, but not a revisioning, by Virginjus Poshkus. This deck is frequently compared against the Universal Waite, redrawn in colored pencil by Mary Hanson-Roberts. I have no complaints about the production. The cardstock, finish and packaging are of high quality, the standard for products from US Games, and the printing is excellent. My personal opinion is the artwork seems styled for a comic book but that should not be assumed to be a negative observation. "Radiant" describes perfectly several skyscapes and backgrounds. The scenes are lovely and, like many recreations of Smith's line drawings, previously unseen details leap off the cards. The emergence of these enchanting Easter eggs remains controversial among W-S experts; are such features newly revealed or newly created by the artist? Poshkus's inconsistent ability to execute an anatomically correct human figure and face is the single factor that sets this deck a few notches below Hanson-Roberts's Universal. In sum, a fun addition to your Waite-Smith tarot packs.

We had been playing with the 3rd edition dictionary. I was challenged all the time. With the 5th edition I've been able to win a few games because the words are in there!!!

Unlike most poker books, this one focuses on the world of the professional poker player and not strategy or tactics. This is a very entertaining read and will prove to be insightful for anyone with even a passing interest in the game.

As a total card playing novice, whose only experience with blackjack is on TV, this book is a very helpful intoduction. Blackwood says that there is a successful way to play every hand. He discusses basic strategy, finding the best game, team play, tournament play, and international blackjack opportunities. Also recommended is Blackwood's novel THE COUNTER.

Wonderful book with acceptable Scrabble words and their plurals, etc. Invaluable game playing tool. I am playing Scrabble at the senior center weekly. The other game players at my table have been playing Scrabble much longer than I. They have "borrowed" my word-building book often and are planning to buy one for themselves.

I have not quite figured these out yet, but they are quite challenging. Have only completed the first couple.
