BICYCICLE TOMB OF CTHULHU Playing Cards. Mystery engraved on stone

Lovecraft and his fantastic world seems to remain an inexhaustible source of inspiration for new playing cards designs. The last one is BICYCLE TOMB OF CTHULHU.

One of the first companies that created card designs inspired by the myth of Lovecraft was 4PM in their Mythos: Necronomicon deck. Four years later, Playing Cards Dot Net releases Tomb of Cthulhu, that was actually conceived as the first one in the Mythos series.

The atmosphere of the deck is dark as a tomb, with engraved stones that hide the ancient secrets of the mythical novelistic god. All cards have been customized with special suits and mystical backgrounds. The court cards follow the traditional pattern but customized where everything is surrounded by a dark and disturbing aura with illustrations full of symbols and an ornately decorated tuck case with a custom seal.

The deck will be Bicycle branded printed by the USPCC in a limited run of 2500 units.

The campaign has already been widely funded and there are only a few days left so if you like it, visit the project website and raise your pledge to get this deck at a fairly reasonable price.

Good luck!
