    So, there is no "M" deck?

    Would I be right in assuming that the "J" deck has 29 cards and would have the same length Straight arrows as the "N" deck? If not, please correct me.

    Compiling Maneuver Decks

    I am making a chart comparing the Maneuver Decks.

    I don't think I own all of them.

    I have:

    A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, K, L, N, and O.

    Are there more? What ships do the go with?
