THE WAY FUN SHOULD BE PLAYED

My grandparents taught me cards and some of my best childhood memories into adulthood were around their table. Full of laughter, strategies, wins, upsets and losses. Cards to me is more than just great fun - cards to me meant great memories.

Being visually inclined, I appreciated card design and the characters on the traditional deck. I thought it would be cool if the traditional deck characters were brought to life. I wanted to honor the unique components found on these cards (such as the two eyed jacks, postures and accoutrements, etc) - All needed to be there.

This deck I'm tremendously proud of and I hope you enjoy and future generations as well.

Two Classic Decks we are releasing.

Classic Black and Classic White. Two companion decks
Classic Black and Classic White. Two companion decks

A great deck of cards you can 'feel'. How it handles, its durability and just the sense of quality that gives it that classic edge. Is it important? You bet! The Classic Decks we are releasing check all the boxes and then some.

Risks and challenges

I've evaluated printers that deal regularly and specialize with playing cards and packaging, getting samples, true costs and everything. There often is unknown obstacles which we'll plan to deal with IF or WHEN they arise. As always I'll proceed in a very transparent manner. But fully expect it to be a good ride.
