I have to say for me the redesigned cards are much more disappointing than the cardboard coins. Why oh why!? The original designs were so elegant and clever - and using western numerals! Why redesign them to nonsensical symbols? ++ for 10?
I feel very disappointed for the original (graphic) designer.
The "nonsensical" symbols are Japanese numerals. + is ten, it's written there twice like that Japanese version of the game writing the Western numerals twice. I agree the original cards look better, but the symbols are far from nonsensical.
