If you didn’t have the chance to buy a Daily Critter playing cards deck on Kickstarter, you can still get one at http://dailycrittercards.com !

We introduce to you a deck of 54 beautifully illustrated, childishly funny, critter puns:

 All the face cards, aces, and jokers have unique puns related to the name of the card.

We wanted to create something unique, fun to play with it and beautiful to look at. That's why we moved away from traditional vector based mirrored cards and gave it more organic and playful look to it.

The deck features 56 cards, including an index card that lists the names of all the 54 puns in the deck. 

The decks will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company, creators of the famous Bicycle deck of cards. These cards are known throughout the world for their remarkable decks and incredible craftsmanship.


I’m Alberto and together with my childhood friend Moo Hyun Chung, we launched a website 5 years ago called: “Daily Critter”. The idea was to illustrate a pun in the form of a fictional creature ( a critter ) every day, for the rest of our lives. Eventually, we realized that it was impossible for it to be daily, we tried for a while ( we have drawn more than 500 critter puns in the past 5 years ), but as you get older, life gets busier. Regardless, we stuck with the name and kept making “Once-in-a-while-critters”. In 2014, Moo came to Korea, so we got together and decided that we should make a product out of Daily Critter. And that brings us to the Daily Critter playing cards, a deck of 54 illustrated critter puns currently being crowd-funded on Kickstarter. We wanted to elevate the quality of the illustrations and make a beautiful deck of cards completely drawn with water colors. But more than beautiful, we wanted to create something fun to play with by guessing the critter puns and also something you can keep playing with as a standard 52-card deck. We are really happy with how it turned out and we hope you are too!
