Although we primarily design and publish board games our team envisioned one more project path. Draconic playing cards will be the first of hopefully many thematic playing card decks. We decided to give absolute creative freedom to our artists.
Valentina has always been fascinated with dragons and you can only imagine our excitement when she approached us with her desire to create a deck of cards with her twist on dragons.
Dragons have always fascinated people around the world. They are proud mythical creatures; dangerous and fierce. But they can also be beautiful and elegant. The deck will feature 52 cards and 3 jokers. All the cards are hand drawn by Valentina Barić.
52 cards + 3 customized jokers
- Wrapped tuck + wrapped cards inside
- Custom faces and pips
- Custom backside
Valentina Barić is a cat disguised as a human currently being an illustrator and concept artist from Croatia. She enjoys drawing and painting fantasy landscapes and creatures. Fairy tales and myths have surrounded and influenced her since childhood. Her favorite subject is dragons, since they're the only creatures as cool as cats.
She wants to keep on creating magical worlds and inspiring others with her vision.

What You See Is What You Get – this will be simple, straightforward campaign. We are aware that add-ons and/or stretch goals would increase the funding total. However, we have already thrown everything into this project. Furthermore, because the cards are made in Europe in a small print run, we do not benefit from economies of scale by producing a few more copies of the game. We do not offer add-ons (not even our other games) during the campaign, because we want to keep our operations simple and deliver efficiently. We have a reputation for shipping on time or early, and this is how we minimize the risk of missing our deadlines.
Shipping will again be conducted via regular post service. Tracking is not offered through this campaign. If tracking is important to you, please contact us via the KS messaging system. Same as every campaign, we will fulfill all the rewards ourselves. Since this is EU friendly campaign, EU backers do not have to worry about customs. Shipments to non-EU backers will have 5 EUR declared as the value of the package. That's roughly equivalent to 6 USD / 8 CAD / 8 AUD and should be under the threshold that falls into customs duties in most countries.We cannot be responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities.
The estimated delivery date is October 2018, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. Because of international shipping logistic, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.

Risks and challenges
We are firmly committed to making Draconic playing card deck a successful project and we can assure you that many hours were spent in preparations and planning towards minimizing risks of backing this project.
However, there are still some obstacles we could encounter along the way and are classified as:
1.Delivery date – our current estimation for delivery is October 2018. There is always a chance for delays caused by third parties.
Please understand that this is the last thing we want to happen as our primary release goal is delivery of the game to all backers on time.
2.Natural disasters or “acts of God” – sadly, we cannot take responsibility for such events, but will try to act immediately and sort out damage control.
p.s. There is always a chance for early delivery as we have a 100% early delivery so far.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
