Will you be tempted by the metallic gold adorning each card?

At first glance Brimstone Playing Cards look like a black version of any other deck. Upon closer inspection you will see the beauty of the design. The back art no longer features cherubs riding bicycles but demons. The court cards are now red fiends with a penchant for gold. The alchemist symbol for brimstone/sulfur is ornately infused with the Ace of Spades to give this deck a completely unique style. Pull these cards out in front of friends and strangers and they wont be able to keep their hands off of it!

Included in the deck are three gaff cards and a 'reveal' in the barcode

Double Backed  -  A card with the back art printed on both sides.

Falling Diamonds  -  You've broke the deck, all the diamonds fell down!

Reveal  -  Joker holding the Three of Clubs in his hand.

Instead of normal barcode numbers, the prediction  '0 3-0F-CLU85 0'  is printed.

How Contribution Pledges are Utilized

All money raised will be used to produce a limited first run of 2,500 decks commissioned by USPCC. Each deck will have 56 cards, matching custom tuck-box and be wrapped in cellophane. The deck has been shopped around to various online and retail stores and has had great responses with interest of selling the cards! I have spoken to the manufacturers and everything has been green-lit. Your help is needed to get this (and future) custom card decks out there!

Product Quality and Design

The finished product will be made to the EXACT production specs and feel of any standard Bicycle® Deck you would find at a local retail store. Q1 325 paper with Bicycle's 'Magic Finish'.  Designed with Photoshop and Illustrator these designs are made with the highest level of detail. 

Features of the Deck:

   ♠  Standard 52 Poker Playing Cards

   ♥  Two Joker Cards (One with Gaff Reveal)

   ♣  Two Gaff Cards ('Double Backed' and 'Falling Diamonds')

   ♦  Custom Designed Tuck-box

   ♠  Metallic Gold Ink on Every Card  

SOLD OUT!  UNCUT SHEETS!

You asked for it and now you got it! At a $40 pledge this is a steal. Only 35 will be made, get yours now before they are sold out! These are not just prints of the cards but  an actual sheet of card stock!

But wait there's more...

You didn't ask for it, but it's here anyway:  (very) USED decks!

Thanks for making Brimstone Playing Cards a reality!
