Overall good item for emergency bag. Pictures were not the best. Wish they did not include Queen Anne Lace as there is only vague warning about Hemlock. Needs to be more info on how to tell them apart as mistake is deadly. Also, not the most accurate. I am 100 percent sure saguaro cactus does not grow on west coast let alone in the Olympic rain forest as shown on the card. I have doubts about some of the other specified ranges, but as I am not familiar with those areas personally, so I am just skeptical and not calling it an out right lie. The cactus range is a lie. Would be quite interesting hiking in pine and fir forests and seeing saguaro mixed in. They are really fantastic plants, but only ever saw them in southwest. Maybe my card was just a misprint and out of alignment. Bottom line is I would purchase these again. Please don't try to eat Queen Anne's Lace unless you can identify Deadly Hemlock as they are very similar. And if you are looking for saguaro in Washington state, you won't find it.

As other reviews state the info on these cards is really good - what to eat/harvest and some prep instructions. The cards are pretty nice quality and the chain is great. The card game is... well not really a game, but that's not why I got it. I just like a simple picture and identification details. If you are like me you will get more from these than a long boring edibles book. Use these to find the plants, then when you want to explore more recipes or plant details go to the book. I do agree with others that I wish more versions were made. A special deck for just the western and eastern US would be great. Also a fruit specific deck would be ideal.

Don't waste your money. Cards are small and the pictures are out of focus and just a blob. I still had to go to the internet and find the herbs because the pictures are pretty much worthless. I would hate to be in a situation where I had to rely on them to survive. Do yourself a favor and get a good field guide.

These are great. I admit to reading most of the reviews before purchasing these cards and decided to give them a try. These are great!

They came in today and I immediately shuffled through them. They have many of the plants indigenous to my area, which I already knew were useful... but the verbal descriptions of the plant along with the sketch and photograph would make it nearly impossible to mis-identify these edible and otherwise useful plants and flowers.

The helpful hints are awesome too and there are many different ways mentioned for their use which I didn't know.

The fact that they have actual playing card symbols on the underside is amusing to me more than a frustration, because if I want to PLAY cards I'll bring a deck of playing cards, when I want to identify plants I'll break out the Wild Cards. Do not buy these if you are looking for playing cards that are meant to be playing cards. These are meant to be a survivalist aid, the other markings are nothing more than an amusing and secondary entertainment in a pinch I'm sure.

Love the keychain chain that holds them all together because they ARE a slippery bunch, which makes it quite easy to slip through them quickly as you're searching for a specific card. They do not stick together at all like "new playing cards" do. These are really awesome and will be a great tool in any survival/evac kit.

This is a must have item! I've done a lot of bushcrafting and foraging for both dietary and medicinal purposes, and I feel that this is, by far, the best reference for the cost and size. I like that the cards not only give a good physical description and location reference, but they also say what potentially dangerous look-a-likes they may have and how to differentiate. Also, how much is too much to injest and what possible health concerns there may be, as well as what parts are useable and what aren't. On top of all that, it is a functioning deck of pretty heavy duty playing cards. I don't think it would work for poker, since it's easy to remember that Yarrow is the Ace of Diamonds, but it'd work great for solitar or War and similar games. Truly worth it's weight on the pack.

The pictures are horrible quality. I was very disappointed. It's impossible to truly detect distinctions in plants, which may be important in telling the difference between similar plants where even some may be poisonous.

Extremely disappointed in the set. Pictures were worse than poor quality, they were fuzzy, vague and indistinct. My 3 year old grandson could take better pictures. I gave the set to grandson to play with. Info on back was so vague as to be a "they" style. You know, "they say....." Save yourself the money and get "Edible Wild Plants: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar North American Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide Series)."
This little deck of cards comes with a small chain that goes thru the packaging as well as the cards so you don't lose any. Cards have normal markings for a deck of cards so you can play games but every card also features an edible plant. With a picture and description as well as warnings if plant has poisonous look alike. Perfect for a go bag in case if emergency or just to take camping. Great little gift for the scout in your life too. Just wish company offered decks for different regions of US and for areas outside of US.
