When it comes to artificial things it’s all about two things – feel and appearance. If you’re going to play with something that is fake, good tactile response and a lack of defects is the least you demand. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as “natural cards” but just because they’re not real doesn’t mean you can’t demand the best. If cards were plastic surgery, Theory11 would be the Dr. from South Beach with his own television show and Britney Spears on his client list. They are – quite simply – the best. With the Sentinel Playing Cards they have outdone even themselves. They redesigned every aspect of what we know about playing cards: completely original art (backs, court cards, jokers, and everything in between), plastic coating, 909 finish, new box (with metallic embossing). You name it and they redid it. For $6, this is one “upgrade” you can actually afford to foot the bill for.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
