Kickstarter: Bicycle Kingdoms of a New World Playing Cards by Nathanael Mortensen

Nathanael Mortensen created the Dragon’s Hoard project on Kickstarter in the beggining of 2013. Jonas Akerlund was the designer of the game. The project was funded and the game is going to be printed in November, 2013.

This is Nathanael’s second project on Kickstarter. He decided to create a Bicycle branded deck of playing cards which was inspired from his previous work experience with Jonas Akerlund.

Theory11: Rarebit Playing Cards

Theory11 helped to produce a deck of playing cards printed by USPCC for a vintage, speak-easy type restaurant called The Rarebit. Playing cards were designed by J Fletcher Design (Jay Fletcher). The deck was supposed to be used exclusively in The Rarebit’s lounge. But Theory11 was able to acquire a small quantity for themselves (500 decks) and decided to use it for promotional purposes.

USPCC: No Name Playing Cards by Mloong Magic

Today No Name Playing Cards make the headlines on this blog. I was able to get it from JP Playing Cards (find a 10% discount below). This is quite a mysterious deck of playing cards because it’s hard to find a lot of information about it.

In accordance with the press release walking Internet, this is the deck produced by Mloong Magic (China) in cooperation with Cards Dancing. The last one is the biggest Chinese association (more than 1500 members in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong) for the study of card tricks after Finger Dance. They produced the deck in April 2012.

The deck: 52 playing card + 2 slightly different Jokers + 1 blank card + 1 double backer. Poker size. 2500 decks were printed by USPCC (presumably Bicycle stock, Air-Cushion finish). Playing cards have custom pips and indices. Court cards are quite seriously redesigned Arrco standard court cards. The pictures of the tuck case are clickable:
