It's that time of year again!

Just a heads up that in a few days I will be raising the prices of all the cards (details here).  Now is the lowest the prices will probably ever be again.

I ordered 2 decks about a week ago. One for me and one for my niece. She collects cards and loves nature so it seems a good fit and chance to indoctrinate her. 😁

The order hasn't shipped yet but I am looking forward to getting them. They look so lovely from the pictures.

Then you must have ordered them from amazon since I don't sell the cards for any number less than six.   I send cases to amazon and amazon ships them out one (or two) at a time.  Did you order from amazon?

I just wanted to share some feedback since I've now seen the cards in person.  They are gorgeous.  

I was hoping my niece would like them since she enjoys nature but I wasn't positive since she's 12.  So it was a bit of a chance.  She spent quite some time reading them all with her little interested/enjoying smile on her face and then she enthusiastically came over to show me the Wofati card.  "I want this house; it's awesome!"  I told her it is totally something she can build for herself some day.

I give this book 10 out of 10 acorns!

The Permaculture Playign Cards by Paul Wheaton and Alexander Ojeda are awesome!

I like the cards for the following reasons:
- It's an actual deck of playing cards! It has all four houses of cards and everything from aces to kings are included, and even a couple of jokers!
- The cards are well-organized visually! I like the artwork that takes center stage on every card, and I love the quick and succinct blurbs around the pictures that explain the concept/idea it tries to convey.
- The cards fulfill their intended purpose very well! They contain many different bricks of permaculture and share tidbits of information with people, while you're playing any variety of card game!
- I love how well-hidden the names of supporters are inside the deck of cards!
- I like the breadth of permaculture bricks chosen to be conveyed in the cards! It gives a nice broad overview of permaculture!

We gave these out as favors at our wedding reception. People loved them and thought they were very appropriate given our environmental bent!

I just lowered the price on the cards.   Right now is the lowest the prices will be through the end of the year - and there is a very good chance that i will put the prices back up on thanksgiving (I have not yet decided if I will print more).   This includes the price at amazon.

Gave these out at our wedding as thank you favors. A big hit with everyone! Plan to take a deck into my school for those "inside" winter days so kids can get exposed to the concepts. It's all about influencing them at a young age!
