The World War II Warships Playing Cards is a fully customised set of playing cards designed by Alvin Cheung. This year marking the 75th year since the attack on Pearl Harbour, the deck was inspired by the warships that served during World War II. Each court card is featured by its very own warship and captain, making it a unique and memorable deck of cards.

As the designer, I have always been very interested in battleships. From the shape to the details. It is a no brainer for me to incorporate the warships with playing cards. You can not only admire the intricate design on the tuck box and cards, but also learn about the history of who commanded the ship during the war. This is truly a unique set of playing cards that can be admired and played with.

Extensive research has been made to produce the decks in order for them to be historically accurate. From the names of the captains to how they look and the ship they commanded.

With all these elements combined and the passion for luxury design, I present you the WWII Warships Playing Cards.

  • Metallic Ink on Cards 
  • Gold / Silver Foil on tuck box 
  • Embossed tuck box 
  • Detailed artwork
  • Printed by Legends Playing Card Co.

Each court card (Jack, Queen King) has its own featured Warship and captain, which are all individually hand drawn and digitally inked based on their actual looks.

Again, each court card features her majesty's ship and the commanding officer at the time of WWII. The courts will have silver metallic ink to create a unique shiny effect.

Risks and challenges

This is our Fourth deck of playing cards in the series. With our previous successful campaigns (Four Beasts, Hellsgate and Diamonds, there are minimum challenges with this project. We will be using LPCC's own fulfilment centre, the same as previous projects (they did a great job).

The whole process:
1. Deck gets funded
2. Printing Proofs will be checked
3. Campaign Ends
4. Printing starts with LPPC
5. Decks get shipped from fulfilment centre
6. Happy Backers!

We will also keep in touch via project updates so you can follow everything that is happening with this project, being as transparent as possible.
