Card Flash: LUNATICA Playing Cards by Thirdway Industries

Currently being fulfilled by Gamblers Warehouse, LUNATICA by Thirdway Industries is a fully custom deck series with bright colors and illustrated in the playful style of Giovanni Meroni. LUNATICA consists of 4 decks: Equinox, Solstice, Chimera, and Phoenix.

The standard editions, LUNATICA Equinox and LUNATICA Solstice have been designed with cardistry in mind. Both tuck boxes come in solid eye-catching neon colors- bright orange for Equinox and striking yellow for Solstice. Relatively simple compared to Giovanni’s previous releases.

Right out of the box, the face cards are visibly bright AND loud! Both decks feature different face cards and backs.. each with its own distinct color palette. Giovanni did an incredible job with the Pantone® Neon Inks! The color combinations compliment each other really well and are consistent throughout the decks.

The limited versions, LUNATICA Chimera and LUNATICA Phoenix are geared towards collectors. Disappointingly, the cards are identical to those of the unlimited versions. However, the gorgeous tuck boxes with 2 layers of stunning foil (yellow + holographic for Chimera and orange + holographic for Phoenix) and custom seal makes up for that.

If you have backed this project, you will love this deck! The neon colors turned out better than the renders from the Kickstarter project and I absolutely love the uniqueness of the neon colors and Giovanni’s vibrant playful artwork. If you are looking for something bright and unique for your collection or cardistry, LUNATICA is definitely for you.
