NEW ACE OF CLUBS
We are introducing a new Ace of Clubs. We loved the skull & cross bones but after completing the artwork for the rest of the aces, it just didn't make sense anymore. The mythological swan - another animal in the kingdom of the Blue Bloods - felt more consistent visually with the rest of the aces and overall look and story of the deck. The skull & cross bones will still be used on the t-shirts, temporary tattoo & patch offered in the rewards (boy are those collectable now!) and will show up as a wild card in the deck. As perfectionists we want the deck to be as good as it can be for you and though a tough final design decision to make at this point, we are confident it is the right one.
And now a little bit about the swan: The swan is the most ancient and powerful of totems. Though beautiful and graceful it is incredibly strong and in mythology it is often a seductive shape-shifter. Carrying the classic Latin phrase "Memento Mori" (remember your mortality) the swan is a fitting symbol for the Court of the Blue Blood Clubs.
