A lavish reinterpretation of a classic deck of playing cards. Poker sized deck includes the standard 52 plus 2 jokers and 4 X cards.

Hey Kickstarter community, thanks for checking out the latest offering from BentCastle Workshops, Pippoglyph Playing Cards. We look at this deck as more of an illumination of a classic playing card deck. Work began with the stylized suit symbols. We then extracted the key features and symbols of traditional decks and married them with the suit graphics. The result is a beautiful deck in which suits have cohesive visual identity and the deck has a refreshing new look while retaining  familiarity and nostalgia.

BentCastle Workshops Card Decks 

Ours are 60 card decks printed on top quality linen stock. Quality is very important to us and while do use printers from all over the world, we only use the best. Our 60 card decks consist of the standard 52 plus 4 X cards (one in each suit), two Jokers, a double backed card and a blank. We developed this mixture to make ALL our fans happy. Card players, gamers, magicians and collectors have all appreciated this mix.

Help Pick the Last 2 X Cards

There are two last cards to create for this deck. The X of Clubs and the X of Diamonds. X cards are simply 4 extra cards that cam be used to customize old card games or invent new ones. They can also be used as reveals in card tricks or as game pieces. So far we have the X of Hearts (dragon) and the X of Spades (black knight). Our current leaders are a unicorn (Diamonds) and a griffin (Spade). This is not a contest and the final decision on what to draw will be made by us, however your comments will be included in the decision making process.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

This is a very low risk campaign. We have produced several custom decks and are intimately familiar with the process. Our only concern is the delivery date. We have been a month or two late in the past. While we find that regrettable it is a hazard of not being able to actually place orders or start production until after achieving funding. As always we will keep you in the loop and if there will be any delay you will know about it shortly after the project funds.
