Cruise ship experiences will be notched up a level on the excitement scale as one new route heads to Antarctica.
Company Intrepid Travel has put together the enviable itinerary for the rote, which sets sail next November.
I don't know exactly when it happened, but eventually they dropped the Bakelite and the convenient packaging for the more modern plastic boxes that store two decks side by side, flat, making them great for bridge or poker night at the house but a lot less practical to carry around without obtaining some kind of separate case of your own.
It was probably for reasons having to do with the cellulose acetate warping if the cards are stored on their edge or something similar.
Anybody that watches e Bay and other sites knows that you see Kem decks all the time shown as "1935" & "1947", when they obviously are not that old. Pretty simple, really, and I am going to give most people the benefit of the doubt, and say it's an honest mistake.
I'll take a shot in the dark and say that Bakelite was used from 1935 to 1950ish, similar plastic cases in the same shape until about 1965, the simpler black plastic flat cases until about 1980 and the slip cases until 2004. There's a three or four digit code on all their Aces of Spades.
The last two digits are the year of manufacture and the other digits are the month.
Many poker players feel that the new decks are inferior to the older ones made in New York before the acquisition - current-issue decks come from the plant at Erlanger, and Cincinnati before that.
Combine that with the abundance of other manufacturers in the game by now and Kem isn't the shining star it once was.
Sometimes it is not, but most of the time, it probably is.
