We are relaunching the project with a more reasonable funding goal. The first shipment of 1000 decks of Double cards are being printed and will ship in a week or so.
Each Double card has two values on the face. You can choose one that works best in card games. Double cards can be played in many card games. You can also invent new games with Double cards.
How did this idea come along?
In card games, we want more aces, kings, and queens… etc but don’t want to hold many more cards. So we combine two decks to one 52-card deck. We have a customized computer program that randomly pairs two values on each card. Because the pairing is completely random, each deck of Double cards is unique. There are more aces, kings, and queens... etc high value cards in one deck. There are greater probabilities to have better hands in card games. By design, Double cards can effectively prevent many card cheating techniques such as counting cards, marking back cards, and even hidden marks only visible by special contact lenses.
Traditional playing cards are printed with thousands of copies on one printing run. We don’t want to print Double cards the same way because we kinda like the uniqueness of each deck. Ideally, we would like to only print one copy for every deck. But to maintain reasonable pricing points and balance the costs, we will have to cut down other expenses and print some decks with small numbers of copies.
Face card artworks - Cartoons & Joker
The thirteen cartoons we select to illustrate the face cards for the first edition are interesting, cute, simple, funny, and happy. We love them and hope you like them too.
QR codes incorporated to the designs
If you accidentally mixed two different decks of Double cards, there is little chance you could correctly separate them. We incorporated QR codes to the back card designs just in case that happens. This is another innovation we are proud of. Also, the QR codes help us track the numbers of decks that have been printed.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge lies in the process of printing that runs really short for Double cards to preserve the uniqueness for the decks. We will work closely with our printing partner to optimize the process and bring this innovation to life in the best quality possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
