UPDATE: ADD $5 TO ANY PLEDGE TO GET PDF DIGITAL COPIES OF EVERY MAZE CARD!

The first attempt at this new venture is THE HEDGE.  Inspired by the world's most intricate Hedge Mazes, "THE HEDGE" features 56 Uniquely Designed Cards with actual, full-frame mazes running THROUGH each of the Kings, Queens and Jacks.  

The specificity involved in making each of these unique tiny mazes (available in 8.5" x 11" full color maze books if you want to give them a shot) was intense.  The designs alone have taken almost 100 hours.  However, the result (I hope you will agree) is a very beautiful and unique deck that looks good enough to hang on the wall, but also retains a traditional look (exact mirror images, etc.) for practical playability.  

  • 56 Custom Cards on Custom Bicycle Brand Stock
  • 2 Unique Jokers + at least one gaff card (to be voted on by YOU)
  • Custom Backs
  • Custom Case
  • Custom Seals

Our initial goal is to break even.  So even though we've managed to get some cool rewards (like Jamie Grant's Anything is Possible Bottles, maze books, and high-quality screen printed posters) we will be rolling out additional add-on rewards as we exceed our Goal!

Thank you in advance for your support!  I apologize for the lack of audio in the video.  I don't have a voice for audio recordings and Morgan Freeman hasn't responded to my Twitter begs for a 30 sec. narrative...

Risks and challenges

I've already been in contact with USPCC, received a quote, and am currently at the pre-press phase. However, if printing errors occur at USPCC (see "Bohemia" Deck on Kickstarter) we could get delayed.

FAQ

  • Yes. I've gotten several inquiries about this. The mazes actually vary quite significantly. Some of them run through the crown, sword, etc.. All of them run through the body. All of them can be completed, but they vary in difficulty from medium difficulty to pretty tough.
