Since the late 19th century in the US, mob bosses have only allowed the worthy to enter their inner circle. Now with these USPCC-printed cards, you hold the fate of the bosses and their families as it will be your playing card skills that will decide if a family will rise in dominance, or get pinched.
Show who's calling the shots with the MADE Gold Edition and MADE Silver Edition decks. These exquisite tuck boxes are foiled stamped and feature stunning hand-illustrated designs of the power and wealth that is all Mafia.
Gold Edition Tuck Box: The striking contrast of the gold foil stamped onto the black background shows this deck’s crew is living large. The intricate details of the stylized gold design include suit icons as well as artwork indicative of the prohibition era.
Silver Edition Tuck Box: This elegant tuck box features a compelling design of an ominous mob boss housed within a spade stamped in silver foil, encased by a white background symbolic of the secret society that largely works unnoticed.
No expense has been spared with these stylish decks. After all, if you're going to wreak havoc, look good doing it!
Each deck features a pinstripe pattern calling back the era of lavish style and dangerously good looks.
We had to do the family justice by creating cards that capture the lure of their underground world. The face cards are beautifully hand-illustrated with special attention given to each design.
Hand-Drawn Illustrations - Gold Edition:
Ace of Spades: Let the ace of spades with its waiting, smoky figure work its magic and help protect you and your money at your next card game.
King of Spades: This Don calmly puffs a pipe and sips his whiskey on the rocks. Cross this guy at a card game, and his ruthless revolver may seek its revenge.
Queen of Spades: This Mafia’s mistress knows how to get what she wants. She can help you get what you want, leaving your card opponents envious of your plays.
Jack of Spades: This hit man of the deck is prepared to take down any dirty rats.
Hand-Drawn Illustrations - Silver Edition:
Ace of Spades: This stylized depiction features two pistols, two daggers, and bullet starbursts within an artistically designed spade.
King of Spades: The thin mustache and hidden eyes of this regal King says it all. His guarded nature makes him a master at bluffs.
Queen of Spades: The lady of the house keeps the boys in-line with her stylish bob and fashionable headpiece. Exuding status with her ruby red lips and layered necklace, this lady will show you how to win victory with style.
Jack of Spades: Cool as a cucumber, this hired hit man knows how to defend and win in style.
Ace of Diamonds: The shattered glass of this red mobster mobile draws attention away from the bullet holes that riddle the car’s front. Ride all the way to your victory with far less damage.
King of Diamonds: Smoking his cigar with a black overcoat casually draped over his shoulders, this muscle is ready to show he knows how to get his hands dirty.
Jack of Diamonds: This standup friend of ours took a bullet protecting the boss. Loyal like no other, let him work your next game.
Queen of Diamonds: As beautiful as she is deadly, this mob wife is prepared to help you put your best face forward.
The card backs of the Gold Edition feature an art deco design, reminiscent of a 1920’s club ceiling.
The geometric design of the Silver Edition card backs enclose a central pillar that is symbolic of both an impressive city skyscraper and the architecture of a family on the rise.
The culture of the mob is filled with secrecy, but ultimately, you’re either in or you’re out. How could we do a Kickstarter project on the mafia without adding an element of secrecy and give you the opportunity to climb the ranks? We couldn’t. So here is your opportunity to make your way from associate to the boss.

Risks and challenges
We have been in contact with The United States Playing Card Company (USPCC), and we do not foresee any problems with printing the cards, and the Bicycle pre-production team approved our designs. We have history of working with the USPCC on other decks and are very familiar with the process.
We also have a great history of working with a factory to who is very familiar with making card guards and dealer buttons. We use Coins For Anything. Therefore, we don’t expect there to be any problems with the production of these items.
