About

Art in playing cards. That's where this deck began back in 2004. Since then, we at Bent Castle have learned quite a bit about the subtle do's-and-dont's of card design. This will be our 5th deck, and although it has strong roots in the past, this incarnation of the Pippoglyph concept takes all the passion of the first deck and refines it.

Featured are the beautiful suit interpretations. These card graphics are highlighted and fully incorporated into the adornments in all the court cards. Using the suit symbols in this way makes for much greater visual relationships within each suit.

Most of our decks are themed. This is an illumination of card art and traditions. It will be a 56 card deck, printed by USPCC (United States Playing Card Company). The four extra cards are Jokers, updated from the original Pippoglyph deck, and two entirely new cards: a Black Knight and a Dragon. By including the four suited jokers, we are accommodating our following who have incorporated our customary X cards into games and magic. We regret that USPCC will not print a 60 card deck.

Preferences

We have a big decision to make about who prints our cards as we move forward. Once this deck is released, we would love to hear from our friends who have both this deck and our Extraordinary Voyages Deck to learn which you prefer. Please compare the boxes and card stock of each and let us know.

Rewards, Add-ons & Such

If one of our reward packages is not quite right for you, either customize it or add to it. All decks are equivalent and can be traded. NOTE: The Living Dead 2-deck set comes in a single box, so it can only be traded for two decks. At the END OF THE CAMPAIGN, we will send out a survey with questions about your reward package, substitutions, and add-ons. Make sure you have pledged the extra funds for what you want.

Customizing: Trade any deck in your reward tier for another BentCastle Deck (Living Dead trades for 2 decks)

Add-ons: You can only add to rewards of $35.00 or more. There are 3 add-ons.

$15.00 - covers any 2 decks -OR- T-Shirt -OR- 8 X 10 Print -OR- Note Card Set (add a additional $4.00 for international shipping).

$50.00 - Signed uncut press-sheet (add a additional $8.00 for international shipping).

$80.00 - 12 x 16 Signed and numbered limited edition Lumograph (add a additional $10.00 for international shipping).

Overfunding Bonuses

If we can get enough backing we can get a bigger print run. A bigger run makes for marginally cheaper decks for us. We like to thank you for making that possible by adding some bonus rewards for everone above the $10.00 level. 

  • @16,000 - wall papers
  • @ 20,000 - a promotional sticker
  • @ 26,000 - A signature card  
  • @ 32,000 - One cheap deck: add a deck for $5 (limit one per backer) you pick the deck (Pegleg Pete's, Extraordinary Voyages or Pippoglyph II), we pick the color

Risks and challenges

This is a very low risk campaign. We have produced several custom decks and are intimately familiar with the process. Delivery dates are based on our best estimate of the scope of the print job. The level of project funding will determine the actual size of the printing, so when the campaign ends we'll refine estimates and, if necessary, post more accurate delivery dates.
