ARCANA!!! ON ICE
Arcana!!! on ICE is a full-color 78-card tarot deck by fans, for fans of the show about competitive figure skating.
Most of the cards are currently in progress! Most of them are estimated to be done by June 17th,
I will reveal all card artwork to backers as they come in, and reveal them to everyone when all are done!

This is a for-profit project, and any profit beyond this kickstarter will be split among all 80 artists involved in the project.
Arcana!!! on ICE will come in five different versions, but all decks will be 2.75" x 4.75" cards on 14pt stock with rounded corners. All decks except the holographic version will come shrink-wrapped, and all decks will come in a custom designed tuck box.
All versions of the deck will not be reprinted, though individual card art may be sold by their respective artists.
The versions of the decks are:
- Ice Gold
- Ice Silver
- Gold Leaf
- Gold Foil
The holographic deck is coated with a film that gives the cards a sparkly look, as seen here. Only the front of the cards will be holographic.
The latter three are printed on metal coated paper, giving the entire card a metallic sheen.
The Ice Gold deck will be printed on stock that "appears a warm white pearlescent color and shimmers gold in the light", Ice Silver on stock that "appears to be a white silver pearlescent color and shimmers silver even further in the light," and Gold Leaf on stock that "is a true gold color and has an elegant, beautiful shimmer."
The Gold Foil deck will be a standard deck with the accents on the border and back foil stamped.
Here's the sticker sheet:
And here's the charm:
These are the buttons that are in the button set!
There are also postcard versions of the cards available; these will be 4" x 6" and will have rounded corners. These will feature the artwork without the borders.
The postcard set will include all 78 postcards!
- GOAL REACHED - $14,000 - drawstring bags are added to all deck tiers, and an upgrade to custom printed drawstring bag upgrade added to list of add-ons for $5.
- $16,500 - add Gold Foil Deck to list of decks (a standard deck with foil stamped accents on the borders and backs of the card).
See Update #2 for more info on possible stretch goals!
- Add $25 or $30 to "The Hierophant"/"The Tower"/"The Star"/"The Moon"/"The Sun"/"Judgment" to add a standard deck or a holographic deck, respectively (or $55 for both)
- Add $60 to "The High Priestess"/"The Empress"/"The Emperor"/"The Hierophant" /"The Hierophant(II)"/""The Star"/"The Moon"/"The Sun" to upgrade the postcard to a postcard set! You can combine this with the standard/holograhpic deck add-on if the tiers they're available for coincide.
- For any tiers with postcards of choice available, you can add additional postcards at: $5 for 1, $10 for 3, $15 for 5, and $20 for 10! For Judgment, you can add $50 to upgrade the 10 postcards of choice to the full set.
- Upgrade the free drawstring bag to a custom printed drawstring bag for $5 (available for all tiers with decks).
Note: Forgot to add PDF of deck to The Hierophant (II)!
Arcana!!! on ICE is in no way affiliated with Fun.imation, MAPPA Studio, and the others involved in the making of YOI.
Risks and challenges
Most of the artwork is currently in progress; the deck should be completed by June 17th, and if not by then, it should be completed by the week after, which is still before the end of the campaign! After that, I'll be compiling all the cards into PDFs that are ready to print.
The biggest hurdle will be shipping everything, since I'm packaging everything mostly by myself.
I will be opening preorders for the standard and holographic decks whether or not the campaign reaches its goal. If it does, the extras of the other decks will be put up for preorder, as well, but if it doesn't, the only decks available will be the standard and holographic ones!
The merch will also be limited to higher priced tiers if the kickstarter doesn't go through, and the digital deck will be $10.
