What does affect it is that some backs are much lighter and it's gotten to a point where I know when a certain card is on the top of my deck. A player shouldn't have access to that knowledge. Yes, I try to play honourably and not factor that into any decisions I make, but it still affects gameplay.That’s why Vic asked you to contact customer service. Paizo’s CS department is amazing and I wouldn’t be surprised if they shipped you replacement cards if you provided them a list of cards that you can tell apart from the rest with your naked eye so that you no longer have that issue. Their contact info can be found at the very bottom of every page on this site (scroll all the way down into the footer)
I think the problem is when you have at least 3 different shades for card backs then you have no way to know which is the correct shade. So how do we know which ones need replacing? I can take pictures but phone cameras usually have terrible colour accuracy.
