Says 104 cards (2xregular deck)

I have 6 jokers. Is that 2 too many?
They have the correct green backing

Thanks
Tim

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

It doesn't really matter how many jokers you have since, if I remember correctly, you don't actually use them in the game. The Jacks are the special cards.

Seems odd. You would think they would not want to produce a card that isn't used, just on a cost issue.

The corners are free spaces for everyone. Yes, you did receive 2 extra jokers. I imagine the reason the jokers (cards) are included is that the cards are printed just like a normal deck.

Cost of a normal 54 card deck (i.e. 4 * 13 card suits + 2 jokers), not much.

Cost of a special deck with just the 52 cards you want and to exclude the jokers would be higher.

Thus it is cheaper for them to give you the extra two cards (or in your case 3 jokers per deck, but I digress).

The executive summary:

Cost of two normal decks [b]
