Frequently Asked Questions
What is the quality of the cards?
These are the finest playing cards available. Our manufacturer has been making cards since 1976 and supplies some of the most recognizable card brands around—Bee, Bicycle, and the World Poker Tour among them. Cards are standard poker size of 2-1/2 inches wide by 3-1/2 inches high. They are casino quality, linen finish, two-ply cards. Cards feature professional photographs on the back and come in a custom-printed, matching box so you’ll be able to use these cards for years. Our cards are in use by tens of thousands of customers on every continent except Antarctica. (If you’re in Antarctica, email now for some free cards so we can remedy that situation!)

I see Planning Poker® cards for up to $17-$20 per deck elsewhere. Why are your cards so cheap?
Mountain Goat Software popularized Planning Poker® as a way of estimating and is far and away the leading distributor of cards. Our cards are the highest quality available but we sell them at a far lower price than others do for two reasons: (1) We buy far larger quantities of cards than others do, which keeps our costs down; and (2) We’re not in this for the money; our consulting services pay the bills so we sell cards as a community service, not as a money-making venture.
