About

KADAR deck of playing cards Designed by Christopher J Gould

£12,613

With the Kadar Deck, we have broken with tradition and produced a truly original deck of cards.   

We want our cards to look like nothing that you have seen before; this is a deck of cards that instantly stands out from the 'pack'.  

We draw inspiration from the diversity of design throughout the history of playing cards. From the colourful pictorial cards of the 18th Century and the cards carried across Europe by the travelling fortune tellers.  

Our cards look colourful and intriguing. The design of the cards reflects the strange fortune telling cabinets that lurk in the shadows of old amusement arcades, the vivid picture cards we collected as kids and the graphic style of 'Silver Age Comics'. Our cards look vibrant and entertaining, but also hint at a deeper meaning beneath the surface.

Who are these cards aimed at?  

The Card Collector. It is unlikely that you will have such a striking, original and unique deck of cards in your collection yet. Put the Kadar deck out on a table with a few other decks and see which one draws the eye.  

The Magician. As these are a full set of poker cards on the best Bicycle stock, you can use them to perform standard card magic. In addition, we show you how you can take your magic to the next level; investing a simple trick with meaning and a personal connection to your audience. 

The Social Animal. Our cards are aimed at simply making you the most interesting person in any group with something that will draw the eye and everyone's attention. We guarantee it! Also if you put a dime in the cabinets, the cards do something strange and mysterious; something that will draw a crowd of interested onlookers. 

We'd love it if you chose to back our Kickstarter project. When you do you will hold, in your hands, the most original and intriguing deck of cards you are ever likely to possess.

The Plan. 

We are asking for an absolute, minimum target sum to get these cards printed and distributed. In time there will also be a series of stretch goals to improve the quality of the whole experience and to offer you more fun stuff. At the start of the campaign, our focus is on the cards. However, stay tuned and see what other exciting ideas we have in store; there's certainly more to come.
