Straight from the fiery pits comes BRIMSTONE playing cards! Sulfur in the air has tainted and twisted the deck into darkness.
764 backers pledged $20,983 to help bring this project to life.

Mailed 200 More Packges!

Posted by Russell Kercheval (Creator)

I'm averaging about 100 per day, so I should be done shipping by Wednesday or Thursday.  International backers hang in there! I know it is a long wait, I am pumping these out as fast as I can (by myself!).  I am learning a lot as I go and next time I ship out cards it should go much smoother!

Speaking of shipping my next deck.... check out the Americana Cards here on Kickstarter! If I reach 250% of my goal before November 1st everyone will get an upgrade to their decks! 

Thanks for all the support!

      Has the US decks all been sent?

      I'm patiently waiting on the 2 decks, one for playing one for collection.

      I'm hoping I didn't miss the package and my house mate's kids got a hold of it.

      Hey Russell, I noticed two things that went wrong with what I got. 1. The cards that I got don't have the brimstone words above the logo that are on the back of the cards and 2. I didnt get any signed deck of cards from you.

      I am still mailing! UGH! haha, customs forms have been taking up most of my time. I have mailed out some of the international ones.

      Have you sent out all of the packages now? Including international backers? :D

      Ahh I see it now, depending on the light a small portion can seem to fade out too quickly. I wonder if that is because of the metallic ink... Luckily it is barely noticeable unless in bright light!

      My deck arrived over the weekend, and overall looks great. I did break open one of the decks I ordered, because I just had to pore over the art on the cards (heck, why buy two if I wasn't going to play with them, right?). Just to point out one thing to you, Russell - it looks like USPCC did cut off the art you had for the Ace of Spades on the sides of the image. Rather than the gold smoke/mist fading out, there is a clear demarcation where it ends (creating the border which holds the corner symbols). It isn't a big deal, but you probably want to keep that in mind for future designs. Still, very happy overall, and can't wait to have some friends over to play - I'm thinking maybe on Halloween, these would be perfect!

      Don and Ken, thanks for the input, this is my first experience with shipping ANYTHING other than an electric bill! I have shipped all 1,2,3 deck rewards in bubble wrapped mailers, and anything more than that have been shipped in USPS boxes. I want everyone to have a great experience with this deck and kickstarter, if for whatever reason your decks arrive unusable, please PM me or email me directly and we'll get you squared away. I am still shipping decks out daily, so if yours havent arrived yet; please hang in there, it will come soon.

      Just received mine, playing Canfield solitaire with them while I browse the web. They really do look awesome and I love the "outline" effect on the gaffed 10 of diamonds, where the fallen diamonds used to hang. Reminds me of when you take pictures off a wall that have hung for many years without a fresh coat of wall paint, when there's a clean void surrounded by a dust/grime halo... :)

      While my cards arrived in great shape, I can understand Ken Grazier's concerns - I was very surprised to hear the contents of the box shifting and to see they weren't packed with anything to absorb impact - even crushed newspaper would do the job well enough (reusing costs less energy than recycling!).

      Got mine today, came out looking great :)

      Got my deck, cards all look amazing. However, the mailer you used got beat up and torn a bit, so my box isn't in perfect condition. A little tear and a bit of a scratch down the face of the box. Not a big deal, but something I figure you should be aware of. Betting it's my local Post Office more than you.

      You've got to open at least ONE deck, people! Collector value be damned - playing cards are meant for PLAYING! ;) (And magic, too!)
