Bicycle HERCULES Playing Cards. The strongest deck of the Olympus

Among the mythical characters of all times there is one that stands out for his strength and courage. Gambler’s Warehouse has released a new deck based on this hero: HERCULES.

Hercules is the Roman name for Heracles, son of Zeus, the king of the gods, and the beautiful mortal Alcmena. He is, without a doubt, the most popular of the heroes in the Greek mythology. His adventures became so famous that they spread from town to town and from culture to culture over the centuries. Now, this deck pays homage to this epic demigod in a magnificent creation, full of exciting details.

 

 

This deck depicts the most adventurous essence of the hero with fully customized cards beautifully illustrated by Blackout Brother. The designs are focused in one of the most popular and exciting episode of Hercules’ life: the Twelve Labors. Each one of the court cards represents one of these twelve labors carried out by the daredevil, from killing the Nemean Lion and taking its skin off to capturing Cerberus, the guardian of the Avernus, and take it out from the underworld.

 

 

For this campaign we have created two editions. The standard Edition, Bicycle branded, will have the faces on black background and the tuck case will have inner printing and a custom seal.

 

 

The Limited Edition, will be much more luxurious with faces on white background and a all the extras in the tuck case including three color foil, foiled inside, embossing and a numbered seal.

 

 

Both decks will be printed by the USPCC in a 5000 print run for the Bicycle deck and a 2500 print run for the Limited deck.

The campaign is funded so if you like it, visit the peoject website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
