We are happy to have this guest post by James Milaras from Joker and the Thief. The Joker and the Thief Playing Cards are one of the most impressive decks last year and was featured in our top12 of 2015. In this first look, James shares with us about the new Joker and the Thief: White Gold and the enhancements made to the new Edition. Enjoy!
[Update] The Joker and the Thief: White Gold Edition is now LIVE on Kickstarter!
We’re very proud to announce the launch of Joker and the Thief: White Gold Edition. This is our first launch of 2016!
What better way to kick off this year with a deck that is considered by many as not only effortlessly elegant, but one that adds to the mythology of the original deck.
We’ve specifically designed this deck with handling in mind. The inverted white gold back design makes for a significant reduction in ink saturation. Pairing this with Expert’s durable Classic Finish should result in far snappier, crisper and more responsive cards than our original deck. In saying this, the new version will greatly outperform the original.
We’d like to give a huge thank you to our original backers for getting the Joker and the Thief Playing Card Co. on its feet. You guys will forever be a part of team Joker and the Thief!
Join us on Kickstarter, Friday, March 18th at 6:00PM PST, for Joker and the Thief’s first limited release of 2016!
