BentCastle Workshops: Pegleg Pete’s Deck of Royal Rogues

29 May

These amazing playing cards were designed and produced by BentCastle Workshops (Chris Pallace & Ben Crenshaw) in 2007. The deck has 58 casino quality cards in all, the standard 52 plus 2 Jokers and 4 Serpent cards with X corner indicies. Four oversized indices of each playing card make it ideal for right and left handed buccaneers of all ages. The decks available in Black or Red Back. Poker size.

Playing cards are dedicated to pirates. The design of court cards is especially interesting due to pips incorporated in it. I’ll make some hints. But I propose you to find them by yourself.



It may be reasonable to assume that piracy has existed for as long as the oceans were plied for commerce. The earliest documented instances of piracy are the exploits of the Sea Peoples who threatened the Aegean and Mediterranean in the 14th century BC. In classical antiquity, the Illyrians and Tyrrhenians were known as pirates, as well as Greeks and Romans.

The great or classic era of piracy in the Caribbean extends from around 1560 up until the mid-1720s. The period during which pirates were most successful was from 1700 until the 1730s. Many pirates came to the Caribbean after the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, staying in the Caribbean and becoming pirates.
