NOTE ABOUT CURRENCY:

As we are based in Sydney; Australia, the project goal and all pricing is given in Australian dollars (AUD). We have included an approximate USD conversion for all the reward tiers and add-ons. The project goal of $12,000 AUD is approximately $9,000 USD.

Medieval Playing Cards is the original deck created by Egor Klyuchnyk from Anomaly world studio in collaboration with Elephant Playing cards.

Inspired by fearless knights, severe lords and gorgeous queens, Medieval is a fully custom hand-drawn deck with one way courts in the original old style of playing card decks. From the card stock to the construction of the tuckbox, Medieval is designed to transport you back in time with a contemporary twist!

These new decks have been created to show all beauty of the Medieval Age and inspired by the great artist - Diego Velásquez. Through this deck we want you to feel this epoch, and experience its elegance and grandeur. We present two types of decks: First, the Silver Unlimited Edition, and second the Gold Limited Edition for those who want to stand out.

 Features of the decks:

  • Printed by Legends Playing Cards Company.
  • Thicker Robusto card stock for a genuine medieval feel.
  • Red wax-style seal.
  • Intricate custom numbered seal on the Limited Gold deck (if unlocked)
  • Authentic out-of-the box tuck flap packaging.
  • Beautiful and Intricate 2-way back design for both decks.
  • Unique coat of arms for each suit- subtle background design.

Note about the out-of-the-box tuck flap

Several people have commented how impractical this will be for continual use - this is not the case! Once the seal is broken and the deck opened, the flap will fold back inside the tuckbox just like a normal deck. It is the same size and will function exactly the same as a normal deck after opening. We have chosen to use this construction method to emulate old-style decks, but with the ability to convert back if you want to. It is unique and looks awesome, but once you open it it will work just like another (but better) deck of cards!

 

 

Medieval playing cards were created with one way faces harking back to the old style playing cards to represent nobility in all their glory. Make sure to click on the pictures for a higher resolution image - you will be amazed at the intricacy and detail in each picture!

Risks and challenges

We have done a lot of research and reviewed several companies to ensure that this project goes as smoothly as possible. In the end, the proven quality and experience of Legends Playing Card Company (LPCC) was a major factor in the decision to produce with them. We have set the delivery date conservatively so as not to rush the production of the product, and have full confidence in LPCC to produce the decks, and Gamblers Warehouse to fulfill them.

Elephant Playing Cards have launched several previous campaigns, and while they were completed relatively smoothly, there may be unanticipated problems which could arise. We have thoroughly prepared for this campaign and will be open and transparent to all backers if any difficulties are encountered. The designs are 100% finished so there should be no delay in sending the digital proofs to the manufacturer, and then onto production.
