The new year is the perfect time to face your demons, and plenty lurk in "Oni" Playing Cards.
Hi! Thanks for stopping by to check out the project. My name is Dave Boyd, the illustrator and creator of "Oni" Playing Cards. It was an absolute blast to design the deck, and with your support we can make this deck a reality.
If you are interested in more decks in my style, the middle-eastern "Sultana" deck was successfully funded through a campaign (thanks to Ned Redmond and Deco Playing Cards) and can be found at the Devilish Rogue Project's Etsy store.
WHAT IS "ONI" PLAYING CARDS?
"Oni" Playing Cards is inspired by the twisted demons, ogres, and tricksters of Japanese mythology. It draws from the tales of legendary warrior Minamoto no Yorimitsu and his four guardian kings found in the Otogizoshi and Noh theater.
- Printed by the USPCC on Bicycle® stock with a linen finish.
- Fully custom court cards, pips, back, and tuck case.
- Includes a thank-you card for select backers (see rewards).
- Info card with names of all court cards and their historical origin.
French suits pips have been given a Japanese flavor. The spade has been replaced by the monk's spade, a tool used to bury the dead found on roadways. Hearts are now two cherry blossoms in the shape of a heart. Diamonds now sport the look of a decorative yen piece. Kanabo, or iron clubs, round out the set.

"ONI" DEALER CHIP
Add-ons can be added to any pledge level. When adding items on, remain at your desired pledge level and simply add the amount listed below to your pledge amount. A survey will be circulated at the end of the campaign so you can specify what extra items you pledged for.
$5,500 - If we can make it to this benchmark in the final 48 hours, every existing and new order of Oni Playing Cards will include one of these chips, free. They are Kickstarter exclusives, and extras from the factory order will be destroyed. Get out there and spread the terrible news of Oni!
Funds raised from the Kickstarter campaign will go towards covering USPCC printing fees, shipping, prototype and proof charges, and of course my time spent creating the art.
By backing, you are helping my dream to take physical form. Thank you everyone! - Dave
