SCP Playing Cards V01 have been deigned by Gavriel Discordia with a standard playing card deck in mind (in Ascending Alphabetical Order). The four suits being here replaced by the Foundation Logo, for Foundation Staff, taking the place of Spades. And the primary SCP Object Classes; SAFE - EUCLID - KETER ( Hearts - Diamonds - Clubs). With Anomalies on the Suit Cards matching the SCP Class they respectively belong to. We aim to respect the lore as much as possible.
Featuring: An alternate version of the SCP Logo, with original design elements for the playing card back. AND FOR STYLE, there are 'Anomalous' Cards randomly inserted cards with various states of simulated 'Damage and Decay'. The amount of which increases as you move from Foundation to SAFE to EUCLID to KETER Class cards.
Our approach to this Projects design elements is based on the idea that Foundation Staff in training would likely have these sort of cards to pass the time, and to better familiarize themselves with the Object Class System. Of course, any lab accidents, containment breeches, etc, would result in various mishaps with these cards, giving them a 'well-handled look' that we have simulated here. Expect around a dozen or so cards to have these 'Anomalies'.
Finding them and imagining what happened to them is part of the allure of this deck of cards. We won't spoil all the surprises included in the design of these cards here, so you have something to look forward to when they reach your hands. Surprises are fun!
NOTE: There are no Standard Red and Black cards in this deck. In games where these colors are a factor; Foundation (Black) and SAFE (Yellow) can serve as 'Black Cards', while EUCLID (Green) and KETER (Red) can serve as 'Red Cards'. However, with 4 different Colors, this deck can also be used to play 4 color games as is! (PSA: Don't Gamble, It's Bad!)

ABOUT THE SCP FOUNDATION
Operating clandestine and worldwide, the Foundation operates beyond jurisdiction, empowered and entrusted by every major national government on Earth, with the task of containing anomalous objects, entities, and phenomena from extra-terrestrial, extra-dimensional, and other extra-normal plains of existence. These anomalies pose a significant threat to global security by threatening either physical or psychological harm and disrupting normalcy.
Our mission is three-fold:
SECURE - The Foundation secures anomalies with the goal of preventing them from falling into the hands of civilian or rival agencies, by acting to intercept such anomalies at the earliest opportunity.
CONTAIN - The Foundation contains anomalies with the goal of preventing their influence or effects from spreading, by either relocating, concealing, or dismantling such anomalies or by suppressing or preventing public dissemination of knowledge thereof.
PROTECT - The Foundation protects humanity from the effects of such anomalies as well as the anomalies themselves until such time that they are either fully understood or new theories of science can be devised based on their properties and behavior.

ABOUT THE SCP WIKI CREATORS
We would like to thank the entire network of Wiki Authors and every single Artist that has developed depictions found across the internet, that set the stage for the development of these characters, in name and appearance.

"That's right, this Playing Card Deck is actually a warm up to something MUCH larger! Something I have been working on for 10 years, without even realizing it until a few months ago. I have kept an extensive file of SCPs that I found particularly interesting and over the summer of 2019 I had a eureka moment as to what I could do with with this list. So if you want a small glimpse into what this Game entails, you have to do your part to make this project a success, by Pledging and Sharing this project." - Project Leader, Dr. Gavriel Discordia

Risks and challenges
Discordia Merchandising and its sister stores Populous Ephemera and Discordia Culture Shop have fulfilled a collective 8000+ orders with over a decade in business. We design and manufacture a wide range of products and have done Pre-Sale Kickstarter projects like this one 8 times before. Let us make cool things for you!
We have had good results with printers from the Asian market and anticipate a quick printing and delivery process. However, this is our first experience getting playing cards made with this particular printer. So our estimate is delivery by Jan 2020. Accounting for the time of this project, the two week delay of funds by Kickstarter, and Printing Time, we are confident this is a sound estimate. That said, we are working to deliver before new years day.
