About this project

#OccupyWallStreet Playing Cards

You’ve been robbed by the banks, foreclosed on, and stuffed into a locker full of debt, but you still can’t pick the perpetrators of the country’s financial collapse out of a lineup?

That is all about to change thanks to the #OccupyWallStreet Playing Cards. Now, you can identify the bad guys and make the citizen arrests we desperately need.


This deck of handsome, professional quality, poker-sized playing cards contains images of America’s most hideous Robber Barons, Wall Street financiers and tax-dodging, wage-crushing Corporations. It also features facts and background on how these notable members of the evil 1% have done our nation wrong. It’s a study guide, a novelty game, and a tool for getting to know who we’re up against all in one.

All donations go directly to the cost of printing the cards, delivering them to you, and distributing hundreds of free decks to occupiers WORLDWIDE. When you donate to make this project happen, you get rewarded not only with your #OccupyWallStreet playing cards -- which will be mailed in time for the holiday season -- but with a sense of pride having helped spread the message of the 99% far and wide.

The genesis of the Audacity of Greed deck was the corporate welfare project of the Job Party, started in 2010 to demand a 21st Century nationwide jobs program.  The deck was designed by Just Hit Send. The images of all 52 cards are available for download at the Audacity of Greed website (they are also listed below). When we at the Yes Lab saw the cards on the AoG website, we couldn’t believe they weren’t in print, so we asked if the Job Party would be game to team up with the #OccupyWallStreet movement and Occupy the Boardroom to have 10,000 decks printed.  They were.  Now, we just need one thing: your help to raise the $16,000 it costs to print and distribute them to protesters around the world.
