I haven't seen this deck, but according to the list at http://thoughtprocess.me/boxes/
the Spoof Expansion includes:

Quote:
SPOOFS (18 cards)

- Spy vs Spy (x2)
- Solid Snake (x2)
- Inspector Gadget (x2)
- Condorman (x2)
- Black Widow (x2)
- Austin Powers (x2)
- Archer (x2)
- Agent 99 (x2)
- Agent 86 (x2)


Is that *really* what the cards say? No creative modification to avoid the legal stuff??

yep....

Saar justified this decision saying that this limited run of the Spoof were (at the moment, I think) an exclusive and if he decided to do a retail version of the spoofs, of course he will change the name....

Or something along those lines....

Hm...fine line he's walking, as at the moment people have paid him $5 a deck for cards of Inspector Gadget and Austin Powers, while he presumably hasn't gotten permission from the owners of those properties.

Damn, I wish I'd bought it now! ha.

I didn't want a bunch of silly knockoff cards, but if they have the actual names that's pretty awesome...

Yeah. I was very surprised to see the card names when I opened that set.

Very happy I got them, since I'm sure those names will not last long.

Yeah, I thought it'd be "Sexy Spy" with an Austin Powers-inspired drawing. Or Spy 1 and Spy 2 for Spy vs. Spy.

I wonder how much of the profit on the $275k might go to legal fees.....
