The Spades depict ancient African culture. The primeval world of astonishing contrasts. There is scorching sunlight which is replaced by the cold scintillation of stars. And the absolute silence of the night is disturbed by a drum rhythm near a ritual fire burning in a boundless desert. The ancient tribal traditions carried through thousands of years live here. The harmony of human and nature give the culture force but sometimes the lines can blur between hunter and prey. Natural instincts will help these people survive with outside forces.
The Diamonds is a fairy tale Japan. It is the country where the sun rises and wind plays in the tree branches. Simplicity penetrates everyday life here. The air is cut by a katana and is filled with a smell of sakura with birds singing in its branches. It is the world of brave samurais, enigmatic geishas who tap their getas and mythic dragons that guard gods’ houses far away in the mountains.
The Clubs embody a medieval culture of Europe. Dark times when legends were written in castles by candle light. Brave knights winning hearts of fair ladies and performing feats, monsters living far away at the end of the world, and magical animals with luminous horns bestowing eternal life fill these legends.
Spicy and colorful India is represented by the Hearts. The stories about charming princesses and brave warriors are told by a sensual dance of graceful interlacing hands. A fragile lotus and a majestic anise-tree, vaporous silk and shining marble palace walls are singing about love, that is beyond time and distance. Any day can become a celebration if it is spiced with flowers, music, and songs.

Risks and challenges
Artwork has been pre-approved by USPCC. Some small design elements may be subject to change based on backer feedback and printer recommendations.
Besides being a super backer, I have successfully completed and delivered several of my own campaigns as well as helping & collaborating with other creators.
I really enjoy the process of creating decks with the artists and working with backers to bring the decks to life. I am in a fortunate situation to be able to cover some of the costs of producing the decks but without the help of the Kickstarter community I would not be able to bring all of my projects to life. Creating these decks is a significant investment of time and money and I am grateful for any and all support.
If there are delays or issues they will be communicated and dealt with in an open manner. As always, I appreciate any feedback. You are welcome to reach out to me directly at any time and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.
