Excellent. Wish there was more detail on India, Africa, and Europe, and would be nice to add mountain ranges (since they tend to be connected to rivers) but great either way.

Lacking some important features

This is a perfectly good deck if you specifically want to study the largest of various things (largest discharge river, longest river etc.) However, there are many culturally important rivers that are not that big and this means the deck is lacking some important information. E.g. the deck contains only two European rivers (the Danube and the Volga) - this might reflect the true fact that most of the world's largest rivers are not in Europe but it then misses out on multiple rivers of cultural importance (the Thames, the Seine, etc.) many of which are still the largest in their country.

Overall 3/5, good coverage of most things but I'd like to see many more rivers. There's a distinct lack of coverage in Europe and the US which is where many users might find more interest (personal opinion).
