Card Flash: The Guard Playing Cards by PlayingCardDecks

Currently in fulfillment by PlayingCardDecks, the Guard playing cards is a classic vintage-inspired deck for the modern player, collector, cardist or magician. Designed by Polish designer Artur Rajch and produced by Will Roya of PlayingCardDecks, the decks were funded on Kickstarter late December 2017. I continue to be impressed by Will's incredible work rate and how quickly the Guard were delivered to backers.

Both the Oak and Slate edition of the Guard are very well done! For me, the Oak edition stands out more due to the use of a brighter and lighter color tone. Both decks feature fully custom and matching face designs but with contrasting card backs.

The card backs beautifully designed with a floral motif, complementing the vintage-style of the deck. The artwork of the courts are gorgeous. The vintage-inspired design has delicate embellishments to charm and delight. Definitely the highlight of the deck for me.

For the magicians, 2 gaff cards were included in each edition. The Oak Deck comes with a double back and double face, while the Slate Deck includes the Contrasting Double Back and Blank Face. Also, a card reveal has been printed on the inside flaps of each of the tuck.

Printed by the United States Playing Card Co. with embossed finish, these decks handles superbly as expected.
