Own complete set of jacks and cards.

I only own several of these because they were being blown out at extremely low prices. It's entertaining, but there's a lot about it that just doesn't work. With several sets of booster packs you can ignore those things and it's pretty fun. Basically it was a promising idea poorly developed and way overpriced.

6 out of 10
an improvement on regular jacks, but suffers from a few overpowered action cards. Easily fixed if you just build balanced decks, and then it's lots of fun.
