Piatnik 4-Pip Playing Cards Review

These cards are made in Austria (since 1824!) and are similar to Copag cards in that they are a bit faded in color and the typeface is a bit blocky. They even have the same texture. These cards are a bit thinner than the KEM Select cards but feel thicker. The texture is rather smooth and shiny but overall, the card feels a little papery.

Piatnik cards

These cards win the prize for least amount of slide. The top card does not slide off the top of a deck when placed on a table. In addition, the cards do not slide as easily on the table felt. this is not necessarily a bad thing.

This bridge size plastic case is one of the best that I have seen. It is similar to the Royal case except the lid stays closed without the use of an elastic band. You must turn the box upside down to remove the cards from the box.

These are poker size versions of the Piatnik playing cards that are reviewed above. They are a four-pip design, similar to the bridge size version and they also have the same look and texture. The back design, however, is much more elegant than the brand shown above and has an almost arabesque design. The colors are the same somewhat bland colors as the cards reviewed above. The feel and texture is not bad, similar to a stiffer Copag card.

Piatnik box

The Piatnik 1360 plastic playing cards come in a nice clear plastic box with a serious flaw - they are very difficult to pick up from the table. The top cover extends down over the entire lower deck and when you attempt to lift the box off the table, the entire top lid lifts off the base, leaving the base and cards still lying on the table. You end up turning the deck upside down and lifting the box from the bottom of the deck.

These are Piatnik 2464 bridge size jumbo index cards with a light-yellow background on all the non-face cards. The pips on these cards are very large and dark and are twice the size of the Piatnik normal index deck. The back is rather unspectacular, but traditional. Overall, I like these cards because they are a) large index, and b) have colored backgrounds.

Piatnik box These cards come in a plastic double-deck box. The plastic is more of a softer (Tupperware) type of plastic rather than the much firmer Kem and Copag boxes. You cannot remove one deck at a time, so you must turn the box upside down to remove the deck. I liked this box, the only drawback is that you must use a rubber band to keep the lid closed. The boxes also stacked very well, so you could stack several boxes on top of each other and use one rubber band to keep them all secure. The more that I handled this box, the better I liked it - it was like using a kinder, softer version of the Kem/Copag playing card boxes.

These decks come with 52 cards and 3 jokers. They cost $16 per setup ($8 per deck).
