We've come up with some pretty cool deck designs in the past year, but check this one out! The Bicycle Pyromaniac Playing Card Deck by Ana Albares is, one of the coolest (or should I say hottest) so far. The mind-blowing magician on the front of the tuck case is pulling a flaming spade from his magic hat. See the cool transformation of the burning magician to skulls on the jokers below. Even a reveal on one for all you magicians out there.

The hand-drawn master pieces Ana has come up with on the 12 court cards below are amazing.

The back card is one of the most detailed we've come up with. This deck will be printed by USPPC on their classic Linen finish. You need to see this fan spread out in you own hand. Wow!

Slightly changed tuck case. The magicians head was moved away from the Bicycle logo.

 A Note from the artist:

I began with the idea of the flames burning in front of a pyromaniac and thought about the beauty he probably sees in them, maybe as flame dancers, and that is how the fire started.

The main problem with it was how to make each court different if they were suppose to be all in flames, all the same color, etc... So i tried to give each one of them a particular air.

-The club court has vegetal details, the color is a little orange-softer, i tried to make them kinder than the rest.

-The diamond court has little details of jewellery, and more yellow than the others. The queen has a rich organized brench, pearls and a certain desdain, the king is crowning himself, and the jack exhibits himself proudly.

-The heart court is the most simple of the courts because i wanted it to be a little dark and pure as desire.

-The spade court is easier to explain, all of them hold spades, knifes or a spear of fire, the cards have more red to remember the blood or the anger and all of them have an agresive attitude.

The jokers are the magician in the tuck case, is the Pyromaniac who was finally burnt by the flames and has become a flame skeleton devil, who plays with the burning cards coming out from his top hat.

And then all those spades, hearts, clubs and diamonds remain inside of the top hat, with the fabric liner holding them until they come out to play their magic.

This high quality metal chrome flip top lighter is a wick, flint and fluid fuel petrol lighter. (Wick and flint is included, the fluid fuel petrol is not included, you can easily buy from your local stores.) The images have been protected with crystal clear enamel coating, for long time duration. It measures 2.25"(H) x 1.5"(W) x 0.5"(D), and comes with a gift tin box. This is not a cheap paper sticker or dull engraved image. High quality lighter.

Risks and challenges

The Pyromaniac Deck has already been submitted to USPCC for printing. We expect to receive the the decks March 2014 and immediately begin shipping to all our backers. We do not anticipate and challenges with this project.

Thank You to all our past supporters! We expect the The Gods of Mythology rewards to complete shipping to all backers that filled out the survey by 1-7-14. That's more than 6 weeks ahead of schedule!

The Creepy Deck is in the final stages of printing and we expect to begin shipping these early February.

How do we print and ship out rewards so quickly? We have a close relationship with USPCC. They are able to print our designs quickly and we have a state art fulfillment center to quickly ship out our backer rewards. With out you, our backers, we could not make this happen. A BIG thank you to Kickstarter and most importantly all of you!
