Like many board game expansion cards, are there identifying marks on each (card) deck that separate them between each army? If they were accidentally dropped on the floor and mixed, how easy is it to separate them?

They have different backs that match each army so you have no worries.

That's the first thing I checked.. all 6 decks have identical backs.

Unfortunately no. Other than the two individual king cards and the boxes, there's nothing to differentiate them.

Gotta love that this thread has two conflicting completely 100% opposite replies. This is what I love about BGG shake

I can confirm they all have the same card back and there is no way to differentiate between them. Weird move in my opinion. Either making the card back different or even just a small army symbol in the bottom corner of each card would have really helped.

Sounds like someone needs to write up deck lists for each deck so that they can be separated again if they were to get mixed up.

The only differences I saw were for the light and shadow decks. All spells in the light deck have the 'light' prefix, like 'light salvation' and such and they all cards have light, white pictures instead of the original colors the base game decks have. Same for the shadow decks, but with shadow prefixes and darker pictures.

Other than that, the unique kings are the only differences I spotted.

Since all decks are identical, there is no reason for identification symbols or whatever, as it is. They all have the same cards. And the shadow and spirit decks are easily distinguished by the name and the different art.

The card back is the same because it's intended to allow deck building.

But, as in my original post, if you drop them, or other players shuffle them together, it's gonna take a long time of comparing, sorting to get them back to separate decks.
