Steampunk Playing Cards




These cards are just AMAZING! They handle great, and they look even better. A joint creative collaboration between the United States Playing Card Company and theory11 and designed in Romania by Alex Beltechi. According to theory11's marketing material, the paper used on the tuck cases did not exist. Bronze paper was made from scratch in order to perfectly print the ink that covers its surface in 19th century Victorian machinery. The boldly stamped, debossed elements cast shadows of illusion and create a perspective of depth and weight.

Opening the box, you will discover 52 pieces of machinery. The depth of the playing cards is fittingly unreal. So unreal, it beckons you to stare at it's seemingly infinite array of detail. Designed by Alex Beltechi and constructed of 12 million 3D polygons. The back design consists of ascetically pleasing gears and motors. The Jokers are morphed into jet turbines of steel. The Ace of Spades is a window of opportunity to witness the gears of intricate beauty and complexity. However, the court cards are standard and recoloured just to suit the theme of the deck.


Handling feels like a dream! It's heavy stock and smoothness makes shuffling, dribbling and fans easy. Making it well suited for card flourishing. With the unique design, if done right, will sure to attract attention while flourishing.

Pros: 
- Amazing detailed design
- Very good handling
- Beautiful bronze box

Cons: 
- Standard court cards
- Cards should have metallic ink to match the box

Overall: 
- 4.5/5
