they are using the same old design again .. i hate the color as well
Are you serious?! I love the green, I think it is very elegant and classy. Also, "they are using the same old design again..." Seriously?! What company isn't using the same old design again? *coughs Dan & Dave cough* I personally love the design of the Blue/Red/Green Crowns. Also, it is the last of that design apparently, or at least colored, I guess...(ooooh! Black Crowns maybe next?! ) Anyways, I think they look awesome, and I am definitely ordering a couple of bricks on *starts singing* Friday, Friday, gotta get down (to buy green crowns) on Friday, I'm looking forward to the (green ones! green ones!) We We We so excited! We so excited! Gonna buy a brick today!

I only have a deck of the first blue version, the box is fine. Do you really care about the box? The cards inside the box are some of the best in the current market.
It’s only natural that any deck of cards will eventually wear out, clump up, etc. They are only paper, after all. With repeated handling, bending, picking up oils from your hands, etc, the performance will diminish. Some decks are clumpy out of the box, some will handle poorly after a day of use, a week, etc. Every deck will eventually fall into the “unusable” category, it’s just a question of how long before it happens. I’ve used Crown decks for timeframes of up to a month without any clumping or handling issues. In my experience, it’s one of the longest-lasting decks out there.
Do you live in a humid climate, or have particularly moist/oily/sweaty hands? Those can be issues that cause cards to clump more quickly than usual.
