First contact with sapient, extraterrestrial lifeforms can be a monumental moment in history or it can be the end of history as we know it. When it happens, reality goes beyond the wildest expectations. The truth goes even deeper, revealing a greater power orchestrating everything.
The Explorers deck explores human contact with an alien civilization through a graphic novel-like visual extravaganza, highlighting the sameness of braving interstellar frontiers with exploration in the Age of Discovery albeit with a twist.
The United Terran Interstellar Administration put together the largest and most complex mission in record time.
I was chosen, by virtue of our neutrality and perhaps my two-facedness and uncanny ability to make the best of any situation, to be the main point of contact when first contact happens. I am also to be the scribe of all mission logs. Lots of trust in me. My resemblance to the Administration emblem might play a part too.
While the mission objective is to establish peaceful contact, will this turn out to be another Columbian Exchange?

At Card Experiment, other than pursuing our vision of making playing cards a medium for communicating, and provoking thought on complex ideas and themes, we are also dedicated to our mission of collaboration and co-creation, especially with artists all over the world, in all our projects.
These beliefs, once again, are exemplified in our current offering, the Explorers deck. In the Explorers deck, we toyed with the concepts of space exploration, first contact, and many other sci-fi tropes.
In terms of visuals, we teamed up with Copete Cohete, a design studio from Mexico City that delves into diverse portfolios and displays unique graphical style, to create amazing graphic novel style artworks that highlighted the intricate ideas that we want to communicate.
In terms of further enhancing the concepts through narratives, we worked with Flagrant Agenda, an apparel brand from Singapore that feature strong concepts behind their apparels, to compose a fascinating story that attempts to connect the various characters depicted in the artworks.
The visuals and narratives are greatly augmented by working closely with The Expert Playing Card Company. The quality of their printing is second to none and the handles and feels that their cards provide have always been and definitely will be the crowning features for our projects and the Explorers deck.
This wonderful collaboration and co-creation of the Explorers deck would be incomplete without your support. We appeal to all of our supporters out there to lend us your helping hands so that we can make the Explorers deck a reality.
Risks and challenges
While the campaign is run from here in Hong Kong and is in Hong Kong Dollars (HKD), the rewards will be fulfilled from the United States by a professional fulfillment service that we have been using for years. Some of the rewards will be directly from us in Hong Kong depending on your location. Either way, the decks will be packed safely and shipped with tracking number. We will make sure that you will receive the rewards you pledged for promptly.
With our experience in producing playing cards, the risks for this project are minimal. Thank you for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
