We recently got a chance to try out a few of the decks from this established company. So we did what we do best and played a few card games. We tried out a few decks and handpicked our favorites.
Designed by Kevin Cantrell Studio, these cards were a personal favorite. The deck box is embroidered with really intricate designs. They’re everything a deck of cards should be, but better. With amazing fine print lettering and all around great design this deck is something we’ll probably want to hide whenever the drinking games come out.
Illustrated by Gianni Sarcone, this deck has a unique optical illusion on each card to challenge your perceptions. The box it comes in is a shimering silver with no wording or indication of what will be in the box. A great deck if you don’t mind waiting between turns for everyone to gawk at the illusions in their hand.
Into The Weird
Into The Weird is exactly that. A series of strange and entrancing images designed by Jenny Gebhardt. A series of 54 different cards all with unique designs of contorted human anatomy and other strange illustrations. Given the art-style of this deck it’s great to just flip through and enjoy the imagery.
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the mostly black satin finished tuck box. These cards come with a very nice double headed on the backs and powerful quotes printed on the front. Each card has a different philosophical quote from one of the sharpest minds of recent years, Bruce Lee. For people like me who are fans of Bruce Lee’s body of work then this deck is for you.
