Hey, all you poker fans out there! This is the ultimate deck that you've been hoping for!
The BLIND DECK!
The cards background:
As the concept of augmented reality (scanning a symbol with your phone to create an image, video and much more) becomes more and more popular - we felt that playing cards (specifically) poker, would work amazingly well as a new strategy. So, the blind deck was born - creating a scannable deck, where all you'd need to hide from other players is your phone's screen.
Think of the PokerZaps blind deck with the power of Augmented Reality and your smartphone to play poker as Minority Report meets Texas Hold-Em.
You get a faceless deck of beautifully-crafted cards that you place face-up to your opponents (this has never been done before). You scan your dealed hand with your phone to reveal your cards (only you can see them) and you play poker as usual.
The cool part about this deck is that you are openly revealing your cards, but only you can see them (on your phone).
To bring the cards to life, simply download a free app to your smartphone.
Never again will you have to worry about people sneaking a peek at your hand.
The card production:
We will be printing these cards using 330 gsm with full color. The cards are smooth and amazing to handle (though they will be on the table most of the time, instead of in your hands). These full-color cards measure 2.5 by 3.5 inches (poker size). All in all, these cards are exceptional and unique in all respects.
What you are getting here:
To celebrate the release of the first ever augmented reality card deck, we have created something very special - right here as part of a Kickstarter project. You are essentially getting your hands on a piece of history, a deck of cards that may have potential investment value as this will be the first batch run ever. Details as follows:
1. “Pre-release Edition” gold foil stamped tuck box.
2. A completely unique deck of cards which is similar to the standard cards that we have all come to recognize and love but without "the hide."
3. 52 cards:
i. Ace to king for all 4 suits (52 cards)
The funding goal is kept very low to make this project affordable to a large group of backers. This will also give backers a more guaranteed chance to get their hands on these limited edition cards. ***Note - the early bird gets the best price! And the early-bird rewards are very limited!
The Rewards Breakdown:
After our special pre-launch campaign of our PokerZaps branded cards (limited edition) on Kickstarter, if it's successful, we will be selling our standardized version of these cards on a variety of ecom sites. We are confident on the success of our own brand of cards as we have spent many months developing, learning and investing a lot on resources to produce top quality playing cards. So, we hope you will support us!
We will also be releasing many more Kickstarter campaigns in the AR venture - so, stay tuned!
PokerZaps is a never-before-created card deck - unique to you. Never again will you have to hide your cards or hide your muck. Back PokerZaps today!

Risks and challenges
As we are producing these decks of cards in an outside production facility and distributing though our own fulfillment center, the only risks and challenges that we may encounter on the way are system breakdowns, which we are still able to control except for a some time delay.
Other risks out of our control include natural disasters and postal service strikes, which shouldn't happen, hopefully.
We hope to make this backed fulfillment run nice and smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
