About this deck

Just so that you have better understanding of how I created this deck. This deck is inspired by the ancient Chinese legendary beasts; The Dragon, Phoenix, Tiger, and Tortoise. I have incorporated each beast into a corresponding suit.

Creating this deck was not an easy task, I had to proof read each design to perfect it. Even the face cards spacing and layout was edited more than 10 times. A lot of effort has been placed in designing this deck hoping that it would appeal to you all.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The only challenge is to meet the goal for the minimum amount of each deck printed which is 2,500 (5,000 for both). After the goal is met I will contact USPCC. They will print and ship me the decks. I will then give a call to my monkeys and donkeys to do the packaging and wrapping. Then you will receive this lovely deck!
The delivery date is set to April, just so that if anything happens at any stage from USPCC or delivery I wont disappoint you if I don't meet my deadline.

FAQ

    So if you pledge for 1 deck (£8) add £15 to that which is £23 to get a poster
