PIPMEN Playing Cards. The stickmen of the deck are back to stay

Only one month ago, I talked about PIPMEN, a project by Ben Jones (Elephant Playing Cards) inspired by a frantic group of stickmen who invaded a deck of cards.

Ben canceled the project to make some changes and adjustments and has relaunched it with much more strength. So much so, that is practically funded.

Inspired by stickmen, those classic puppets we draw since we are children, Ben has created the pipmen, joining the concepts of the stickmen and the pips of the poker cards.

The original idea and design remain the same, a creative transformation deck where each card is a funny scene in which those small men interact with the pips of the card that are part of their own world becoming “everyday” items .

While numbered cards show pipmen in different (and hilarious) situations, the court cards are a curious reinterpretation of the traditional ones, featuring different characters, each one with their own personality, in curious asymmetrical poses. The jokers are also unique and fun.

No doubt this is a bet by a different, original and fresh deck that will not only add fun to the poker nights with friends, but will also entertain all who can enjoy every one of the cards.

In this campaign both decks, red and black, are offered from the beginning, with the same design and different jokers and back color.

 

 

The decks will be printed by LPCC and the project includes several stretch-goal features like inner printing on tuck cases, embossing, numbered seals and a third deck, the Shadow Edition, that will have a different back and jokers.

This time, the decks will be real so, if you like them, visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
