About

The 2nd Edition Lumberjacks will be back for a re-launch! 

For updates on progress follow me on Twitter or Facebook

If you want to order the 1st Edition deck, visit the site!

The Lumberjacks are back and fully redesigned for the 2nd Edition! Although paying homage to the original deck, there are many significant changes throughout the tuck and cards. The Ace of Spades on the front follows in the foot steps of the "Standard Bicycle" deck and many other decks that feature it on the front.

The back design also pays homage to the original. Both the 1st and 2nd edition have trees, axes, leaves in the corners, and a caption. For the 2nd Edition, the leaves have been revamped, the rope replaced with a woodgrain border, the axes are incorporated into the tree and a new caption is added.

The axes have been removed from the top of the tuck and replaced with a two-man saw (that is also featured on the Jack of Hearts and both the Jokers). On the sides, the old rope has been removed and replaced with the woodgrain mentioned earlier and a small text change.

Fluorescent blues and reds replace the traditional black and red suits. Each suit features 3 redesigned court cards portraying and older king, beautiful queen and a younger jack. The 12 court cards have a fine woodgrain border and their respective suits in the right hand corner.

The Lumberjack Aces. The Ace of Spades and Clubs are shown as trees that haven't been chopped down yet. While the Ace of Hearts and Diamonds are shown only as leaves, representing trees that have already been cut down.

King of Spades; the only king that doesn't hold an ax. Instead, he is wielding a one man lance tooth saw. 

Queen of Spades; the worker. She is the only queen that carries an ax. In a standard deck of playing cards, the queen of spades is the only queen with a "bed post" in the frame.

Jack of Spades; the slacker! The only jack that isn't holding a tool. I think I know who the queen of spades got her ax from! Later pictured on one of the two Jokers.

King of Hearts; known as the Suicide King because of the sword through his head. This is a result of centuries of bad copying by card makers where the king's axe head disappeared. The 2nd edition king of heart goes back to a time when he carried an axe.

Queen of Hearts; the tree hugger! Not too thrilled about all the trees being cut down and shown protecting the tree.

Jack of Hearts; shown with a two man saw and the hard hat that all the jacks wear. He is also later pictured on one of the two Jokers.

King of Clubs; wielding the double-edge axe that's featured on the backs of all the cards and tuck.

Queen of Clubs; the helper. Women lumberjacks would help carry the fallen trees.

Jack of Clubs; shown with an ax slung over his shoulder and the hard hat that all the jacks wear. He is the only jack wearing overalls.

King of Diamonds; sporting the awesome beard and wool hat that all the kings wear. The only king with his hand on his suspender.

Queen of Diamonds; another helper. Women lumberjacks would help carry the fallen trees.

Jack of Diamonds; the only jack holding rope. The knot in the rope is called an alpine butterfly knot. Butterfly knots are used by climbers. Earlier lumberjacks climbed trees to top them.

 All of the suit pips feature fluorescent blues and reds in place of the traditional black and red colors.

Risks and challenges

Possible production delays aside, all artwork is finished, approved, and ready to submit to USPCC.

To get the Lumberjacks printed and shipped to you as quickly as possible, for now, I'm not offering t-shirts / dice / chips or other complicated reward tiers that would make the distribution process take longer.

I want to keep it as simple as possible: support the project and in return I'll send you an awesome deck of playing cards!
