"That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God." - Albert Einstein 

A DIVINE deck: 

The Divine Playing Cards were designed using a mathematical pattern discovered in 1200 A.D. that seems to be the key to access mankind's creator.

This mysterious diagram is hiding in plain sight everywhere: flowers, shells, waves of the sea, trees, in your fingers, in your ears, and even in the shape of the galaxies. Accordingly to science, this pattern might be a trademark that proves the existence of a creator.

If you would like to own one of the most intriguing decks in the world this would have to be the one. We started designing it after I visited the Louvre Museum at Paris and met the enigmatic Mona Lisa, who was also painted using Fibonacci's spiral. Ever since we have been working day and night to bring to life  a deck with a code that seems to be the "key" to everything.

There is a special "easter egg" feature in the deck that will surprise your friends and guests during your card games. You'll be able to let them find out in a very unique way the answer to the "Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything else".

Playing cards are more than an accessory. They are an extension of your personality. A deck should tell a story. A deck should enchant players, cardists, magicians, and everyone else who holds them. For that reason, we have created the Divine Deck. This deck can't speak but he will tell so much.

About us:

We are passioned about playing cards, magic, and games. We design all of our products in house and for that reason we proudly value quality over quantity. This is our second Kickstarter project. Our most recent project was the Ritual deck that was successfully funded here on Kickstarter last October.

Where your contributions go:

Design the cards, manufacture them in the best world's best manufacturers of playing cards (USPCC), produce limited edition unique rewards (all rewards are made in the USA) and rent warehouse space (to ship your orders as fast as the speed of light!) is a hefty investment. That's why we need you to help us making this project happen!

Risks and challenges

Our previous release, the "Ritual deck" was successfully funded here on kickstarter, and we have not met any challenges during production. For that reason we started shipping the decks to all of our backers one week after we received them from the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC).
Probably the fastest turnaround in Playing Card projects.

The Divine deck artwork is fully finished, approved by USPCC and ready to be printed once we achieve our funding goal. Our schedule from USPCC says that all decks will be ready by the end of March. What could happen? A delay in production from the side of USPCC, however from our experience they ship the decks sooner than expected. With no delays from the printers, we will ship everything in May or sooner.

Thank you for kickstarting our brand!

The Elite Playing Cards team.
