Gift-time is coming up, and what do you get the card player who has everything? Well, more things for their games room, of course – it’s impossible that they could have everything… Check out some gift ideas here.
Decks and Things
Magnetic Playing Cards
According to the site, Magneting Playing Cards have been in production since 1963. The set comes with playing cards (made from thin sheet metal) and, of course, a board to stick them to.
