Exclusive First Look: Dedalo Playing Cards by Thirdway Industries Part I


Here's an exclusive first look of the Dedalo Playing Cards series from designer Giovanni Meroni of Thirdway Industries. Last month, Giovanni posted a teaser on Thirdway's website and provided a few clues about Dedalo. This has generated quite a lot of interest within the playing card community.


For the next 3 weeks, we will be going through the details of each deck in the Dedalo series. To kick things off, we have Giovanni to tell us about Dedalo Alpha:
Dedalo Alpha is the first deck in the Dedalo Series- the main theme is the Labyrinth. The symbology is very complicated. Just for a challenge, I will not spoil the complete story and prefer that people try to guess who the characters represent. For this reason, I've used "King of Taurus" instead of "King Minos" for the King of Diamonds as an example. 
There are two main stories in this deck. Hint... the gods involved in the story will be represented by the Spades courts. 
The above images are Jack of Hearts and the Queen of Diamonds. If you're wondering why those animals, the Owl was the symbol of Athens, and the bull was the symbol of Crete. Finally, the above are images of pips and an Ace of Clubs. Everything, as always, will be 100% custom :)

Join us next week when we look at the second deck in the Dedalo series, the Dedalo Omega! The provisional launch date for the campaign will be 10 June 2016. Stay tuned!
