The companion deck to last year's Metropol NOX deck is here!
Metropol LUX classic, the companion deck to last years Metropol NOX deck, features 4 colour suits and is printed on Legend Playing Card Company's diamond finish card stock. You can feel the superior finish the second you take the cards out of the pack!
I received a lot of requests for a 2-colour deck to satisfy the card players out there and I'm happy to present the Metropol LUX red and Metropol LUX blue decks!
Both decks follow the traditional 2-colour deck approach. Clubs and Spades are one colour, diamonds and hearts another. Printed on the same superior card stock as LUX classic, these cards are the perfect addition to your poker table, cardistry display, or magic routine!
The cards are going to be printed in very limited numbers by the Legends Playing Card Company. The LPCC is quickly making a name for themselves with their superior quality finishes, laser accurate printing, and the unique features they offer to deck designers. I couldn't be happier to team up with them for the production of the LUX decks and I know you'll be just as happy with the final product!
Only 1000 copies of each deck in the LUX series will be printed meaning they will be true collector's items!
The DEX set started out as a purely decorative accessory to the LUX deck, much like the laser cut wood and metal designs that are often available with other decks. The set quickly evolved into "trainer decks" designed to help cardists master their skills. They can also be used as dealer buttons, card guards or poker plaques (high value poker chips). These versatile cards are laser cut from fluorescent acrylic (plexiglass) and are a stunning and unique addition to any card collection or poker table.
The DEX acrylic cards are available in decks of 5 or individually.

*Please note, the final colour of these cards will vary slightly from the renders above.

Unlocked at $25,000 - STAX Acrylic Poker Chips
Laser cut from the same fluorescent acrylic as the Metropol DEX trainer decks, STAX are acrylic poker chips (or coins if you prefer). They are the same dimensions as traditional poker chips, though they're a bit lighter. Most importantly though, they've got a great sound when they click together which a lot of poker players will appreciate. If we reach the $25,000 stretch goal, STAX will be available to add on to any pledge. STAX will be available in 3 different bundles:
STAX Sample Set - 1 of each of the 5 designs
STAX 300 Chip Set - 300 STAX chips, 60 of each design
- STAX 500 Chip Set - 500 STAX chips, 100 of each design
Adding extra items to your pledge:
After the campaign has ended I will send out a survey to everyone asking which add-ons they have included in their pledge!
I really want to say that all the backer rewards will arrive in time for Christmas. The mail system tends to get overloaded in mid-December which usually leads to delays in delivery. I will do everything in my power to get as many of the rewards as possible delivered in time for Christmas. To be safe, and to avoid disappointment I want to say that a January 2015 delivery is more likely.
Risks and challenges
This is my second project on Kickstarter. I've been through the entire process of running a successful crowd funding campaign earlier this year including producing and shipping the rewards on time. This time around I'm confident with the whole process and all the steps involved. I learned a lot while producing and shipping my last project and really took my time reviewing what went right and what went wrong with it. As a result, this time around I'm able to offer a higher quality product at a reduced cost! The artwork is ready to go, and I'm prepared to get things moving into production as soon as the campaign reaches its funding goal.
This will be my first time working with Legends Playing Card Company (LPCC) but from the very first e-mail I've had nothing but confidence and excitement in working with this company.
As confident as I am with my side of the project, there's always the possibility of delays in production or shipping. While these delays are ultimately out of my control I will do whatever I can to reduce the possibility of them occuring, and should anything come up, the backers will be the first to know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
