Kickstarter: Metropol NEXT Playing Cards


After a year of hiatus, Metropol Playing Cards is back! Founder Mike Lambert has just released the Metropol NEXT on Kickstarter. The project is seeking $8.5k in funding goal and is currently 34% funded. The modern deck oozes sophistication and style all wrapped in one.


On the design of Metropol NEXT, Mike told Kardify,
I started designing the Metropol NEXT deck a little over a year ago.  At the time I thought the design was finished and was planning to launch it early on in 2018.  Since then my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world.  After taking a much-needed break to spend with family and enjoy this new chapter of my life I decided it was time to revisit NEXT with a fresh perspective.

Mike decided to re-work Metropol NEXT from the ground up.
While I kept the look and feel of the previous design, I revised every aspect of the original including colours, pip placement, court cards, aces, and a completely new tuck design.  I even decided to step away from the 3-letter naming scheme I had been using for all my previous decks, NOX, LUX, DEX, etc.  All this time I had been referring to the new deck as NEX but decided it was time for something new.

Along with a new name, the deck features strong colored faces with bold linework front and back which makes it great for cardistry.


The layout of the all-white pips and indices has been updated as well as the court cards. The aces also showcase a unique design element to help them stand out from the rest of the deck.


The Metropol NEXT deck is quite literally the next step forward for Metropol Playing Cards. Printed by Expert Playing Card Co on their popular Classic finish. Pledge starts at $9 on Kickstarter. Don't miss out!
