Bicycle Mayhem Playing Cards deck by Cardicians

It’s time to support another Kickstarter Project and yes it’s another deck of Bicycle Playing Cards and once again it’s by the Cardicians. I already have their Dark Templar deck and the Steel deck is on the way, but these guys aren’t resting, they’ve come up with another design that looks just as amazing – Mayhem Playing Cards.

This is a great looking deck with deep red colors and impressive intricate designs. It only took one look to add 2 decks to my order. But that’s not all, there are dice, chips, coins, and even a complete poker set. And if you fancy some clothing, they have plenty of shirt offerings. I’m totally on board for this one and wanted to pass it along.

The Princess Bride Playing Cards from USPCC – Kickstarter Project

I just came across yet another fascinating project on Kickstarter and it was funded right out of the gate. And as soon as you see it you’ll know why.

This is for a set of Princess Bride Bicycle Playing Cards and as we all know, The Princess Bride is one of the greatest movies ever made. Nearly 1300 backers would agree and the project was funded in less than 24 hours. Now it simply comes down to choosing how many decks you want.

But there is a slight twist. Stretch goals are on the way with different card backs done by different artists. This should make for some very interesting imagery and some really fun choices.

Since this is a brand new project, you can choose between 1, 2, or 3 decks. The price is a little higher than for other projects, but that’s due to the licensing. Still, this is an incredibly cool deck and it’ll be pretty unique and rare when it’s done. If you’re a fan of The Princess Bride, and quite frankly, who in their right mind isn’t, this project deserves your attention and support.

Anything less would be… well… Inconceivable!

Bicycle Dark Templar Playing Cards deck

I need to step away from Kickstarter. I found yet another riveting card deck that captures great artwork of characters that interest me. For this deck, it’s the Dark Templar. It is indeed based on the Knights Templar, the mythical order that is said to guard the resting place of the Holy Grail. Some say it’s all a myth. Some say they still exist. Many believe they held incredible wealth and vast treasure and may even be responsible for our fear of Friday the 13th. Either way, the story is fascinating and this Dark Templar deck encompasses that dark mystery.

This project has already been funded, but with 24 days left to go there is plenty of time to jump on board, pick up a deck and even grab one of the rather impressive add-ons. Basically you’re paying for the decks themselves, but then you can add on things like the an antique coin (which I really like) poker chips, a handmade Templar Wood Box to hold the card, an entire Poker set or you could even get your likeness printed on a card.

I really like the cards and the coin is very nice, but I have to say it’s really hard to resist that wooden box. It looks extremely nice and would no doubt make a fascinating conversation piece. I will be eyeing that all the way to the end. Funny though, the tiers aren’t all encompassing like other projects. So, if you get the box you don’t get the coin or chips like you do for previous levels. I really wish they’d offer a “total package” so that as you go up the tier you get EVERYTHING that came before it. Sure, you can add those on, but it really should be it’s own reward.

Anyway, another wonderful card deck that will really impress. It too has been added to the list of projects I’m backing. I’m looking forward to their updates and what fun things they have in store as the project progresses.
