    I’ve owned 3 critical fail decks not including this one and I must admit this one reigns king. The wording is fantastic, the rules are fair, and the design is on par with anything I’ve seen (honestly it’s better). Be wary however, adding this deck to your game without the critical success deck is the worst critical fail.

    Gives a bit more flavor and hilarity to rolling a Nat 1, and changes it up each time. So much better than always just missing or hitting the wrong target.

    Cards are great quality and make the game more interesting and quicker than coming up with stuff on the spot.

    This deck puts some meaning back into rolling a 1.

    We’ve had some battles completely change direction because a crit fail has had an unpredictable effect. Great for players and GMs.

    Critical Fails add a lot of fun to the game. The deck has a good variety of fails and is well worth adding for your gaming days!

    I’ve seen several Crit fail decks and this one just seems better. No expert opinion, just that it seems more balanced and fun. Plus the multiple levels makes sure things don’t get out of hand.

    Love these cards!

    Adds alot of content to your games and will cause alot of epic and funny moments!

    Nice touch to have different effects on different weapon types; melee, ranged, natural and spells.
    Greatly balanced when it comes to the different level sections the deck is divided in.

    Seen loads of critical fail charts but this is one of the better ones!
    And it is a high quality deck format.

    If you are like me, you want to sleeve the cards for better durability and card size is 63×88.
    (Nord Games please add these measurements to descriptions, it helps people like me 🙂 )

    This is almost a must if you ask me and you wont regret buying these cards!

    Great additional flavour to add to combat. I like to use these as prompts for myself to come up with lots of different results that my players love!

    Holy s*** I purchased this product along with another deck 4 days ago and it just came by right now.
    I am from Spain so it usually takes up to a damn month and this guys made it in four days. They must be actual wizards.
    The cards are AMAZING by the way.
    10/10 on service and product, not even amazon gets me these deals. I am really pleased.
