The scorpion is an arthropod, a relative of insects, feared and revered by different cultures, which stars in the eighth deck of a series dedicated to critters. One of the main differences between this deck and the previous ones is the color scheme. This time the cards have completely black backgrounds, with monochrome designs in white and red. The usual customization uses the scorpion to decorate the corners of the cards.
The court cards show the same characters from the previous decks, which have been adapted to the colors of the rest of the deck with this inverted designs.
Two editions of the deck have been made, with the same faces and different tuck cases and backs that keep the same color combination.
Like in the rest of the series, the deck includes two gaff cards for card magic (double face and double back).
The cards have been printed by the USPCC with the traditional cut and air cushion finish in a limited edition of 1000 decks of each color.
Only 200 units of each deck have just been available since the rest have been sent to the members of the Pip Box Club and other distributors. You can get them in a set or individually.
Also, to celebrate the launch, during this weekend, you will be able to buy the set of the two decks with a discount of $6 on PlayingCardDecks.com website. Take advantage to get some more decks from its extensive catalog.
