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 Relaunch: Bicycle the Lumberjacks 2nd Ed. Playing Cards by Vadim Smolenskiy
Vadim Smolenskiy relaunched his Bicycle the Lumberjacks 2nd Ed. playing card project on Kickstarter. See the main article devoted to this project. Any changes in design? The Jack of Spades was granted with a stein of beer. I think the design is nice and doesn’t need any changes. It only needs enough attention from playing card collectors.

Preview: Blackjack Casino (Final Fantasy) Playing Cards by Laura Wilson and Fangamer.net
This Blackjack Casino Playing Card Deck is devoted to a role-playing video game (RPG), Final Fantasy VI. The game was the sixth title in the Final Fantasy series. It is also known as Final Fantasy III for the US version. Final Fantasy VI was published by Square (now Square Enix) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) platform in 1994. SNES is a 16-bit home video game console developed by Nintendo that was firstly released in 1990 in Japan. Later it was ported for other gaming platforms (for the Wii’s Virtual Console in 2011).
Final Fantasy VI was directed by Yoshinori Kitase and Hiroyuki Ito. And it was the first game in the series which didn’t involve its initial producer and series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi.
The game’s story is focused on a rebel’s struggle against an imperial dictatorship. The Empire is the most advanced nation in this game. Its opponents are the Returners, a rebel organization trying to vanquish the Empire and free its territories.
These playing cards were designed by Laura Wilson especially for Fangamer.net, a site devoted to celebrating and encouraging the art of gaming. Each element of this deck is custom.
This deck isn’t the first one from Fangamer.net. Earlier they produced Zelda Poker Playing Card Set (The Cards of Legend) in cooperation with Nelde (nickname), an artist from Switzerland. The set, Red and Blue Decks, was devoted to the Zelda series of video games.
