THE GUARD Playing Cards. A classic design with an exclusive secret

A few weeks ago I told you about the present and future releases by Will Roya ( Will has recently (and successfully) launched his new decks: THE GUARD.

Designed by the Polish illustrator Artur Rajch, the faces have a traditional appearance in the numbered cards and in the decoration but show at the same time a more contemporary look on the facial expression of the court cards.



That classic inspiration is also present in the backs, full of ornaments and with flat colors.



A set of fun jokers complete this deck that is endearing and, thanks to the pips, indexes and numbers, is also perfect for playing games and magic routines.



Two editions have been created for the campaign: Oak and Slate. Both share the same illustrations in the faces and differ in the backs and tuck cases. One of these editions will be exclusively limited to the backers of the project, so it won’t be sold later by any wholesaler or any store and will be used exclusively in promotional events. Something that is interesting and novel in this initiative is that the exclusive deck won’t be revealed until the end of the campaign to prevent the acquisition by people interested in their re-sale.



Both decks will be printed by the USPCC in limited print-runs of 1000 units. In addition to tuck revelations, both will include gaff cards for magic routines.

The campaign is widely funded so if you like them, visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
