When Tuckcase.com originally posted about Albino Dragon's The Name Of The Wind Playing Card Project a little less than a month ago they had just met their goal and were just under $30,000 in funding. In a huge push over the last month, The Name Of The Wind Playing Card Project reached their last day of funding today, June 13, 2013, with over a half a million dollars in total backer funds - $589,660 to be exact. With the huge funding, The Name Of The Wind project, broke Kickstarter records for being the highest funded playing card deck. The previous record holder, Jackson Robinson's Federal 52, had a funding amount of just under $150,000.
Huge changes were made at Albino Dragon once the deck reached over a half a million when the owners GAVE partial ownership to project co-organizer and author of The Name Of The Wind novel, Patrick Rothfuss.
The project unlocked all 37 stretch goals that include involvement from Neil Gaiman and Felicia Day as well as a reprint of The White Rabbit deck. The deck and add-ons are slated for shipment in December 2013 just in time for the holidays.
