You can just hear Chandler ask, "Could this deck be any kitschier?" These unofficial playing cards pay homage to the iconic and beloved '90s sitcom, Friends. This cheekily-designed deck of 52 standard-sized cards has four classic suits and is printed on poker-quality material.
For the Friends Playing Cards, the sextuplet is (more or less) coupled off and assigned to the four suits. Ross and Rachel are (on- and off-again) hearts. Monica and Chandler are diamonds, because Monica asked to be diamonds and who’s going to argue with her? Then the ever-quirky Phoebe takes spades, leaving the lovable Joey as clubs. Who else could be the Joker but – “oh, my, GOD!” – the inimitable Janice?
As 2019 marks 25 years since the first episode of Friends aired, there’s never been a better time to deal these cards and whittle away some time with the very best of your friends.
