So, you are here. Our Messenger did his job. Welcome to our Reign, Mortal. We are the rulers of everything around you. We are the Gods of Pantheon.

Here are the last unlocked add-ons and items.

Last week offers!

I just unlocked those two offers. Check the add-ons part for more informations.

Last week offer!  if you want 2 uncuts, they'll cost 75€ USA / +90€ world (instead of 100/130€)

Last week offer! You can add a mixed brick of Dedalo Decks (6 Alpha, 6 Omega) with an awesome discount. Just +105€ USA / +130€ world. Only one per backer.

Pantheon Dracma is available as add-on! Add +13€ to your pledge to have one (USA and World). Persefone's Box already include 2 free coins. Check the "add-ons" part for more informations.

Persefone, the the third joker, is unlocked! Pantheon's 55th extra card, inside every deck.

Pantheon is a limited deck from Thirdway Industries, with a luxurious tuck box and gold foil on card backs. I consider it a spin off of Dedalo, and all the court cards are Greek Gods.

Tuck box Features:

  • Dark matte paper
  • Embossing
  • Double foil outside, Gold and Violet
  • Red inner foil
  • Numbered custom seal (1-1777)

Card Features:

  • 2 Metallic inks on faces, bright gold and bright violet
  • Fully custom: courts, aces, back, box - everything redesigned
  • Gold foil on the backs
  • Limited - 1777 / around 1500 available through Kickstarter
  • NEW - 55 cards (extra joker included)

Here is a picture of the card back, with a lot of gold hot foil - design is updated from the one I posted when the campaign started.

The Pantheon decks that won't be sold on Kickstarter will have a retail of ~65 USD, and will be sold only on www.thirdway.it

Maybe you met some of us in the past. Some of us were in the Labyrinth, a long time ago. Were you there as well?

I'm a daugher, I'm wife. Lost between heaven and hell. Queen of Spring, Queen of Hades - your world round around me.

I'm the Goddess of Harvest, and I lost my daughter. She's been kidnapped by the God of Death. I control the seasons, Winter and Summer.

I'm the God of Art, and I control many things. Music, poetry, art and medicine - everything belongs to me. I'm a master of Archery. Am I also the God of Sun?

I'm the lame Artisan God. I'm not handsome, but I do great things. My wife is the most beautiful Goddess of the Pantheon. 

Pantheon Aces

The Aces of Pantheon represents the divine powers of the Gods. Diamonds represents art, growth and glory - Hearts passion, emotions and pleasure.

Clubs represents wisdom and genius, and Spades the pure power of the Gods and the Pantheon itself. 

The pips have a design who resemble an explosion of light.

Clubs and spades will be made with Gold Metallic ink on Dark violet background.

I'm God of Lightning the God of Gods. There are no limits to my power. All the Gods are my children.

I'm the God of War, and I believe in strength. Victory is for the ones who fight, mortal: audentes fortuna iuvat.

I'm the God of Wine. Come here, mortal! Celebrate with me! There is always a reason to be happy. Here you go, take a glass.

I'm the Goddess of Love. I may be too much to see: I'm too beautiful for the eyes of a mortal. I love strong, bold and handsome Gods.

Watch out, mortal. I'm the God of Death. I don't live with my brothers. I'm just here to find my wife. Have you seen her? 

I'm the God of Sea mortal, and I'm one of the strongest, here. My wrath is feared by everyone. 

Hello again, mortal. I'm the God Messenger, and you're here because of me. I'm the fastest of the Gods, and I protect travellers.

I'm the Goddess of Wisdom. I win battles with strategy and honor. I'm chaste and strong, and I hate my brother.

I'm the Goddess fo Faith, the mother of Gods. My husband is the king of the Pantheon.

I'm the God of Sun. With my chariot, I bring light and life to your world. I'm the only one who can drive it. My son tried, and I lost him.

I'm the Goddess of Moon. I run through the night, and hunt my prey. I love nature, but I don't love men. The only one I loved, died by one of my arrows.

The final gift from the Princess of Hell and Spring. Mortal, you're allowed to bring it back. If you're brave enough.

Persefone's Box is the final reward of Pantheon. It includes:

  • Twelve (12) PANTHEON Decks (retail value ~$750)

and the powerful father Zeus on the other:

Carat Card Case X1

I really like the Carat Card Cases because they allow you to display and protect your best decks without obscuring the design and features of the tuck.

The case is 5mm thick, very sturdy and perfectly transparent. It's closed by 4 pairs of Neodymium magnets (10x stronger than normal magnets).

To add a Carat Card Case X1, pledge +10€ USA or +15€ World. You can add as many Carat Card Case as you wish.

Double uncut sheets

I thought that Pantheon uncut sheet back would be great to see, with all that foil - so I decided to give a very special discount for the ones who want have 2 uncuts instead just one, so you can display both the front and the back. They'll cost 75€ USA / +90€ world (instead of 100/130€)

Pantheon Uncut Sheet 

The Pantheon Uncut Sheet will be a limited item for the Kickstarter campaign. I usually make around 10 Uncut Sheets, based on the demand. If you raise your pledge for an Uncut Sheet please send me a Private Message.

To add an uncut sheet, pledge +50€ USA and +65€ World

Dedalo Brick add-on

This add-on is almost a tradition for my projects :) It allows backers to add a brick of Dedalo Decks with an awesome discount. Just +105€ USA / +130€ world. Only one per backer.

Dedalo Decks

Because Dedalo and Pantheon are related, you can add Dedalo Alpha and Omega to your reward. 

Add +14€ USA / +19€ World for every deck. You can also add Alpha+Omega for +24€ USA / +29€ World. You can add as many Dedalo decks as you wish.

Here are some free goodies for our supporters. Free, even for non-backers!

If you are a proud backer of Pantheon, you can support the project by changing your profile image (Kickstarter or Socials) with our badges.

Risks and challenges

The deck will be printed with Expert Playing Cards Co.
It's a standard procedure and should go smoothly. This is my fifth Kickstarter and I already worked with EPCC for Evil Deck, Delirium, Omnia Projects and Dedalo.

All the layouts are approved and ready to be printed when the campaigns ends.

I am located in Italy, and I can't do the fulfillment directly: I'm using a professional fulfillment center, Gamblers Warehouse. They have already shipped a lot of Kickstarter decks and have a lot of experience in this field.

Of course problems might happen. I can't control other people actions, but I'll follow every step of the process to avoid problems and I will keep everyone updated.

All the elements shown could be changed and improved. Printed colors could be different from the ones you see on your screen.
