    I just ordered a sackful of gifts from you, but OMG, the portable fortitude cards. I can think of at least five people I need to gift those to. <3

      Thanks for your order Jane! Yes – the Portable Fortitude cards are genius. The only thing is, it’s hard playing cards with them because you just want to look at the illustrations!

      I would think so – I don’t read playing cards myself, but can’t see why these particular cards wouldn’t ‘work’ – unless you didn’t personally like the imagery, perhaps. Or maybe the image would distract or interfere with the reading process?
