Full comparison details between the 'Standard Edition' Decks and the 'Special Edition' Decks from our previous Kickstarter:

  • These Green Dragon 'Standard Edition' decks are not to be confused with our first launch to kick off the Black Dragon Series, when mid way through our very first Kickstarter campaign we introduced Signed 'Unleashed' Special Edition Decks in Black, Green, Silver and Gold which we done to offer backers as collectable items for the series in exchange for helping us reach our funding goal to have a successful first Kickstarter launch for the first deck in the Black Dragon Series of playing cards with the Black Dragon (Standard Edition) Deck. 
  • This Kickstrater is instead for the second 'Standard Edition' deck in the series (The 'Unleashed' Special Edition Decks from first Kickstarter included Unleashed written on tuck box as well as themed King Dragon cards in 4 different colours plus 2 Joker Cards, with all green cards in the deck featuring illustrator Marine Loups signature).  
  • All 'Standard Edition' Decks being launched on Kickstarter 'WILL NOT' feature any Unleashed Markings, Signatures or Themed coloured King Dragon Card Sets that were featured in the previous Kickstarter. (The Special Editions were designed and introduced during our first Kickstarter as exclusive collectable decks for the series to help with raising enough funding for a successful first deck launch for the series with the 'Standard Edition' Black Dragon Deck).
  • All Standard Edition Decks are designed specifically for magic trick performances and are essential to the Black Dragon Series and seperate from the 'unleashed' Special Edition Deck sets that we put together.
  • All Standard Edition Decks include a set of 52 playing cards, 1 Joker card and 1 Gaff Card, plus a Marking System as well as 1 hidden reveal and are pre-loaded decks with several card tricks ready to perform straight out of the pack! 
  • 'Standard Edition' Decks will feature box seal stickers, upgraded card stock options for card magic (Stretch Goals) as well as including upgraded packaging with pealable cellophane wrapping!

 The Black Dragon Series Of Playing Cards are cards reimagined. From Unleashed Dragons, Samurais and Katana blades, to Symbolic Koi Fish representing an ancient legend, these cards have been created specifically for card magic while also being designed to capture the imagination.  

How the Black Dragon Series came to be...  

The first image to take shape, which eventually played a major role in the Black Dragon Series of playing cards, was the "Black Koi" (featured as the Joker in this deck series). It was created by Marine Loup back in 2014 after she felt inspired by a legend about a group of Koi fish. The legend goes that through determination and perseverance, a single black koi was able to swim upstream to reach the top of a waterfall against all odds. It overcame demons that laughed at and mocked its efforts and who had also heightened the waterfall out of malice. According to legend, after reaching the top of the waterfall, the gods who had witnessed the koi's efforts turned the black koi into a Golden Dragon, the image of power and strength. This deck draws its inspiration from this legend and from Marine Loup and her Turning Japanese illustrations, and represents the determination and perseverance demonstrated by the black koi, battling against all odds to succeed.

Only 250 Limited Edition Decks available in this Kickstarter

(Limit of 250 per Kickstarter launch for each subsequent deck in the series until 1000 deck limit reached).
