 The Hundred Years’ War is one of the longest wars in history, which lasted for more than a century. Deeply inspired by the dramatic scale of the war, our team has decided to make a project based on the historic events  every single element of our card designs are based on historic investigation and verification.

The collections will only be produced once and will be limited for 5,000 decks only for each edition; Gold and Silver.

Ace cards are delicately designed using symbols and medieval motifs that represent each dynasty involved in the war.

Court Cards feature the major historic figures of the war. We've put real efforts to create a modern interpretation of the medieval costume designs and combine them with traditional court card elements. Court cards depict exceptional details with modern classic features. 

Joker may be a private soldier but his identity won’t be revealed here. 

The back of the deck symbolizes the confrontation of two dynasties. If we reach our stretch goal, the back will also be printed with gold/silver metallic ink.

 Art card and Double back card will be included. 

And here are number cards. 

Absolutely elegant tuck cases will be made from premium stock paper, the same paper used for Artisans deck case by Theory11. The box will be graced with exquisite gold/silver foiling. When the target is reached, the case will add intricate embossing, custom seal and inner print features.

About us 

SPAAAADE&Co. is a small team gathered to make beautiful and high quality playing cards and card related products. We have always aspired for making original decks collaborating with passionate and creative artists. This is our first step and we have made one with Hanuku. 

Hanuku has a deep affinity for classic engravings and enjoys creating detailed and obsessive artworks which made this project possible. (You can see his other works here.)  It has been a real joy to work with him and we are thrilled to share what we’ve come up with. We hope our dedication for last 6 months to finally bear fruits with your help. Thank you for taking the time to review our project.

*The decks by SPAAAADE&.Co will be manufactured by USPCC.

Risks and challenges

As most distributers do, we will print the deck by The United States Playing Card Company (USPCC). They are well experienced more than any other group or person who got funded here. Our project is a challenge for us but a routine for them, and for that reason we chose to follow their guidelines to minimize the risks during production.

The Bicycle® Hundred years' War tuck case is very detailed. The main challenges will be how to let it take shape and come alive just as we imagined it to be. For realization of the box, we are contacting USPCC and are discussing the details.

Another issue is delivering your rewards in a timely manner. As to the shipping, we are quite experienced through e-commerce. Without any delays from the printer, we will get your pledge to you on time, safe and sound.

We promise to stay transparent and open with you. You may also follow us on our social media accounts for further updates.
