About

Hounders are good hearted parody of crowdfunding’s most notorious deck of playing cards NEVER produced. But unlike, that shameful deck, with your help this deck of playing cards will be produced by the Tomlinson Playing Card Company and printed by the Expert Playing Card Company (EPCC). Over the last few years there have been many great playing card projects here on Kickstarter. Unfortunately, every once and awhile there’s a bad apple. Recently the Attorney General of the State of Washington has taken the first steps needed to make one of these bad apples (Asylum Playing Cards) pay for his crimes. While the backers of some shameful decks wait for their justice we decided to offer the next best thing.

In an alternative Universe there’s an animal shelter, a dog pound, if you will. But this isn’t an ordinary run of the mill pound; this is the place where all failed and shameful crowdfunding projects come to manifest themselves into the form of dogs and cats. Yes, I know… weird, but it’s true.

While the deck features mainly dogs, there is one special cat that represents the creator of the most notorious deck of cards in KS history. His name is Uncle Scam and will be acting as the mascot for this parody deck.

Over the coming days and weeks, we’ll be revealing new dogs. We'll also be announcing add-ons and stretch goals shortly.

The Tomlinson Playing Card Company consists of a husband and wife creative duo, Robert and Diane. Both have had several successful Kickstarter projects over the last year. Diane has created Krazy Kats Playing Cards and has just successfully funded a design sketch pad used for sketching out playing cards designs. Robert is the creator of the Unrest Series, consisting of Civil Unrest, Global Unrest and Colonial Unrest. We decided to do this parody deck because the local animal shelter wanted some decks of cards similar to Krazy Kats. We felt that this would be a good opportunity to poke fun at one of the most infamous deck of playing cards at the same time create a new version of Krazy Kats/Dogs. We fully expect to see this project fulfilled by Christmas! That’s right; this would make a great gift (goofy gift) for all your favorite friends.
