post world games is proud to offer three unique and custom playing decks, designed by Ennie and Origins award-winning graphic designer and art director jim pinto. Expertly designed to be collector's items and gaming accessories, each deck is a beautiful and unique work of art.

You can pledge for each deck individually, or for all three as a collection!

The Norse Runes deck is a beautiful set of playing cards that showcase classic art and elder futhark runes, which when combined, serve to make a great collector's piece, or an invaluable gaming aid (for games like Fate of the Norns, Death of Ulfstater or more).

There is exactly one of each elder futhark rune in the deck, allowing you to simulate the random draw of runes from a bag! Simple substitute any blank (rune-less) card from the deck for your void rune and get playing!

 

Featuring art from Eric Lofgren, The Cthulhu Deck is a Lovecraftian themed set of playing cards that make a great thematic edition to any cosmic horror gaming collection!

A great fit for games like Call of Cthulhu or Realms of Cthulhu, this deck really pops in a collection!

Disclaimer

All three decks of cards are printed on a POD machine and do not come in a case or box, unless we hit a very high stretch goal.

We're pleased to offer stretch goals that will give PDFs of post world games productions that you can use with your new cards! None of these games need to be written and will be curated from the existing and massive post world games collection!

Additionally we have new and exciting cards to be added to the decks!

Every $1000.00 over goal we raise, we will give a new PDF of a post world games roleplaying game for each backer to get for free! These PDFs will be delivered immediately upon receipt of funds from Kickstarter!

Check out the updates for more on this.

Additionally, every $1000.00 we add one, new variant card to one of the existing decks we're offering as part of this Kickstarter!

Here is a list of all the cards added and which deck they'll be going into!

jim pinto is a multi-award winning author and publisher of over 100 books, games, and a novel. He's been in the industry long enough to forget how long he's been in the industry. Most of his products are well-received and the first 50 people who back this are regulars who are gluttons for punishment. No. Wait. Quality backers.

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk on this project. The art is all in, the cards are all designed, the stretch goals are all finished or just awaiting unlock. We just need the funds to print and deliver!

Your rewards will go to print and then ship as soon as the funds from the campaign are received.

Alan Bahr is managing this project. This will have zero impact on jim pinto's outstanding work.

What about your other late Kickstarter: A fair question. For this project, post world games has brought in an outside project manager with significant previous Kickstarter experience (and a reputation for on time delivery). All the previous campaigns are on the verge of delivery, so this won't impact those projects at all.

    Custom Deck

    Working with you, I design a completely unique deck of poker cards. Price does not include additional art if it needs to be ordered, but it does include my time to make graphics, and dig up stock art images from my personal library. This is a one-of-a-kind deck. I will never sell this deck to anyone else. I won't even keep a copy for me.

    Includes:
    • Cthulhu Art deck (print)
    • Cthulhu Art deck specific stretch goals
    • all digital stretch goals.
