I KNOW!!!

The thing I'm afraid of now is I'll finally get it - take a look through it - and decide I like my Classical better. ROFL I mean the biggest reason I was going to get it in the first place was to compare the two. Because of what sapienza says about the facial expressions I got curious.

But whatever I think of it - it's staying with me forever!!!!! What with going through all this to get it???? It's never going anywhere else!!! LOL

What's the difference, if any, with the different Ancient Italian boxes?

Here's the one Bob has at Carta:
http://www.carte-karuta.com/catalog/...products_id=47

And here's one shown on amazon (I've also seen it other places as well):
http://www.amazon.com/Ancient-Italia...4565855&sr=8-2

And then there's this one. Is this even the LS deck?

Glad to hear your deck is on the way faunabay.

As for the boxes, the third one is the box both my copies are in, and yes, the are Lo Scarabeo. I've wondered myself about the different boxes too.

Lucky you!! And how sweet of Debra!

R.e you links. the one you'll probably get is the last one. That is the most common box for the Ancient Italian. I have three copies of the AI and two of the boxes are this green one with the Chariot on the box (I also have one with the Star on the cover, but I shalln't confuse you more; it is a Spanish/ Portuguese edition).

The first link you post is exactly the same deck. It just includes the title card. That thing with the Italian flag and the King of Wands is not a box, it is the title card.

The middle one you post Ive never seen in the flesh. And anyway, it is $147 so you don't want that one...

This deck is on ebay just now and shows yet another box which I've never seen.

I assume the cards are all the same on the inside though
