So while back Just Insert Imagination put out an awesome product that they had put a lot of time and effort into. The result is a good looking versatile deck that in my opinion has to be seen in print to fully appreciate. The mutation theme fits will with the look of most any Post Apocalypse setting and was very well timed with the release of the Savage Worlds Rifts Setting.
I have had this PDF for awhile now and its has honestly taken me a while to get around to punching out a review of this product. So why has it taken so long to get around to doing this piece? Well, that answer is two-fold.
First off I wanted to print out a set of the cards and have them in hand. Sadly I ran into several complications between my personal printer not printing a good set. This is more a fact that I am in dire need of a printer upgrade and has nothing to do with the quality of the product. That said if you do not buy the cards themselves. Nor do you have a nice printer, Take the time and run out to your local Staples and print a set of these cards out. You will be doing yourself an injustice not too.
Secondly, I had been asked by Just Inset to Give their cards a review and I wanted to write up an honest review. The guys at Just Insert Imagination send be products because they know that I will be honest and tell you, my readers if there were issues I find with a product. I highly respect that we have a relationship like that. So I waited till I could get a decent print of the cards in my hand before I began the review.
In that time I looked at other reviews and blog posts about the Mutation Deck. And then I stumbled on a blog that blew me away about these cards. That blog can be found Here.
The Thing is I will say up front this blog was written by the Designer of the deck. BUT Wow.. after reading his blog I look at these cards in a whole new light.
There are a few things I can add about the cool way you can use this deck after reading this. But there are a few things that I can add.They look and feel a part of the wasteland. They look of wear is a great touch.The Each of the suites is themed, this goes back to the blog the designer posted. Every card has an ability, Disadvantage or Advantage except the Jokers. The Jokers each have a Wilde Mutation.
To sum all this up, go read the designers blog about all of the awesome uses you can bring to the table with these cards other than just tracking initiative ! Do yourself a favor and pick up the Print on Demand version of these cards!
