Kickstarter Digest #3: New Playing Card Projects Waiting for Your Support

New playing card projects are popping up on Kickstarter regularly. RJ Tomlinson (Titanic Playing Cards, Gettysburg Civil Unrest Playing Cards, etc.) presents Pompeii Playing Cards. His custom poker playing cards are inspired by the novel, The Last Days of Pompeii, written by Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1834. Mr. Bulwer-Lytton was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. He devoted his novel to the tragedy of the city of Pompeii, the ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, Italy. It was destroyed and buried under ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

See the playing card project on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Kickstarter Digest #1: New Playing Card Projects Waiting for Your Support

PlayingCardCollector.NET regularly tries to cover the most interesting playing card projects (choices are always subjective) on Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms. Unfortunately, alternative crowdfunding platforms don’t involve a lot of playing card projects, so Kickstarter remains some type of mecca for independent playing card producers.

Traditionally the most interesting playing card projects are demonstrated on the “CROWDFUNDING DECKS” page and have their short introduction on the active pages devoted to different crowdfunding platforms. For active Kickstarter projects this is the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Unfortunately, any changes on the above mentioned pages can’t be automatically reported unlike new posts on PlayingCardCollector.NET. So, only readers who regularly check appropriate pages can find out about new featured Kickstarter playing card projects before a separate post devoted to such project. Regular readers of PlayingCardCollector.NET know that the site tries to propose them extended interesting articles about appropriate playing card projects. It’s clear that such articles demand time and can’t be always posted at the start of each specific playing card project on Kickstarter.

This little collision has been disturbing PlayingCardCollector.NET for some time. The site always thinks about its usability, and tries to provide its readers, its main fortune, with reasonable comfort. That’s why a new category has been invented – “Kickstarter Digest”. This sort of posts should promptly cover all new Kickstarter playing card projects featured on PlayingCardCollector.NET. They will name the projects featured on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.  It doesn’t abolish extended materials 🙂

So, look below at these new projects and check the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Kickstarter: The Four Seasons Playing Cards by Ace Collectable Cards

Ace Collectable Cards (Justin) designed a deck of playing cards, The Four Seasons, to celebrate the four seasons. The four suits of it represent a different time of year while the standard fifty two card deck is used to represent each week of the year. This deck will have also four Jokers representing each season and devoted to four chosen backers of this Kickstarter campaign. All elements of this deck are custom. The designer tried to incorporate a lot of classic symbols of appropriate seasons into each suit of it. Courts resulted to be very emotional characters.

The Four Seasons playing cards are planned to be printed by the Expert Playing Card Company (EPCC).

“There is no season such delight can bring,
As summer, autumn, winter, and the spring.”
~ William Browne*, “Variety” (1630)
