The first item I reviewed was the Splash Jack Royal cards. These are very unique cards, they float! The cards are printed on what seems to be thin Styrofoam. I think these cards would be great for playing by the pool, or hot tub. Perhaps you are like my family and accident prone. I can’t tell you how many decks of cards we’ve ruined by knocking our drinks over. We don’t have to worry about that any longer with these waterproof cards. They come in their own zippered mesh bag for easy storage.
The other item I reviewed was No Stress Chess. My husband likes to play chess but I had no idea how to play. I figured this game would help me learn the game. I have to say it was much easier to understand the rules of the game with these cards. They teach you as you go along on how to play. Plus one side of the board shows you how you are allowed to move your chess pieces. When you get the hang of the game, the other side of the board doesn’t show you the moves anymore and you are on your own. I feel this is a great game for a beginner in learning the game of chess.
