Playing card manufacturer Cartamundi has launched three new poker sets to tie in with the 50th anniversary of Dr No. The three sets are a compact poker set containing 150 chips, a wooden poker set with 200 chips (shown below) and a luxury aluminium set with 500 chips, all of which are available from Amazon.co.uk and other suppliers.

Many potential buyers will be disappointed that the compact set doesn’t include images from any of the Sean Connery films on the playing cards, and it seems a shame that the poker sets released to coincide with Casino Royale, have not been reissued.
