56 beautifully illustrated playing cards from Dann Kriss Games, printed by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC), designed with a Lovecraftian 1920’s theme and a haunted Victorian flair, each edition bearing the Bicycle logo and Dann Kriss Seal of Quality.

Packaged in two separate extremely Limited Editions, the Elder Sign Edition and the Necronomicon Edition. Only 3,000 decks of each edition will ever be printed, this deck will never be printed again… ever! 

Our third deck, the Unnameable Horrors Edition is also available! This deck can be ordered in unlimited quantity during this campaign, but will only see this one print run before it is also 'retired' from print!

Some great features of these decks include…

  • Limited Editions (only 3,000 of the Elder Sign & Necronomicon)
  • Hand-painted artwork by world renowned artist Ian Daniels
  • Beautiful images taken right from the pages of Lovecraft
  • Custom designed, Lovecraft-inspired Suit Symbols
  • Rich, dark colours
  • Printed by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC)
  • Branded with the Bicycle logo for collectability
  • Air-cushioned (Magick) Finish

Risks and challenges

Ian and I have been working on getting as much of the deck artwork and layout done as humanly possible in preparation for this campaign, and we will continue working on it throughout the length of the campaign. This campaign is set to end on November 1st, so by the time we get all the surveys sent out, collected all the survey responses, and get everything finalized with the printer, we should have everything ready to go to print by mid- to late-November.

Since the printer is the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC), we don't foresee many problems arising in that aspect, as they have well over a century of experience as printing in quality and meeting deadlines. We have still allowed an extended time frame, not listing the reward delivery until March of next year, just in case any troubles arise, but if all goes even relatively close to plan, we should be mailing out by early February.

The manufacturer of the poker chips and box sets is also an experienced company, and we've looked into other companies who have worked with them in the past. They maintain a high reputation, and we feel confident that they will meet any production deadline we have set.

As for shipping out the rewards once we receive them from the printers', we will have all the boxes labeled and ready to go with invoices, so that we can ship out to you as quick as possible.
