...is a photo scanned copy of the deck Kenji (from Aeclectic tarot forum) posted of a Pam A crackle back antique deck.
I don't know if that is Kenji's own deck. But unless Kenji is the one making these decks for sale, someone grabbed the high rez pics and is selling copies. Just wanted to make Kenji and/or the owner of the antique deck aware of this situation, if they don't already know.
How do I know this is the same deck? The three of pentacles has a flaw that also appears on this new deck.
I don't own the Tavern Games deck, so I don't speak from first hand experience.
However, my quick YouTube search this morning provided a hand full of reviews.
The consensus is that it's cheap and nasty, out of proportion and printed on flimsy paper.
People are even GIVING their copy away!
So Kenji need not be too concerned by Tavern Games 2010 rip off, it seems.
But some-one, someday will use his scans to do it 'properly'.
And then there'll be that old moral dilemma...
To buy or not to buy - that will be the question!
I know this is a hot topic, but to my way of thinking, Kenji will own the original.
And everyone else will only ever own a copy.
Will the value of Kenji's original deck go down?
I very much doubt it.
