We are looking to fund the printing of the Deck of the living Dead. We have had the design and artwork for the deck done for some time, but the funds to produce it have been elusive. This deck is the latest from Bent Castle Workshops a tiny independent publisher (mainly Chris Pallace and Ben Crenshaw) who, up until this point, has been able to self fund their labors of love.
The cards will come in sets of 2 decks. Each set has a deck with black backs and a deck with corpse green backs. Both decks have the same faces.
Here is the king of hearts. Note that he is still the "suicide king". All standard deck features have been retained. We have also designed the deck with 4 oversized indexes so it's easy to use for both right and left handed players.

The aces are ornate iron cemetery gates. The number cards continue that theme and incorporate the unique suit icons we developed for this deck.

One other feature unique to Bent Castle decks are the X cards. Both this deck and our Pegleg Pete's deck of Royal Rogues have them. They are four extra cards, one for each suit, that can be used as you wish. Use them as wild cards in classic games. Make-up new games. Substitute them for other cards, like 8's - so crazy eights becomes crazy reapers. Or use one as a reveal in your favorite card trick.

THE RETURN ...

Many of you may have noticed this is a second attempt at funding this deck. This time we are looking to raise $9,500 dollars. We can get it done for this because we dropped the print run from 5,000 sets to 2,500 and we got a couple of retailers to make large pre orders. I would also like to thanks all of those who supported us in our last attempt. When that failed it was all your words of encouragement and ideas that helped us retool and try again.

OVER FUNDING BONUS

For a little added incentive if we get above 14,000 we will give a extra Pippoglyph Playing Card Deck to everyone receiving rewards 3 - 9 and two extra Pippoglyph decks for those receiving rewards 10 - 13.
