House of the Rising Spades

From the mind of Lorenzo Gaggiotti of Stockholm17, the House of the Rising Spades is an exquisite deck inspired an esoteric realm full of mysteries built for cartomancers, cardists, magicians, collectors, dreamers, and card enthusiasts. The beautifully illustrated face cards have no standard index, particularly the spot number cards (2 to 10). Recently picked as 52 Plus Joker's 'Deck of the Year'.

Bags of Bones

Mad kings, assassins and a headless dinner guest are all denizens of this dark and droll universe. Bag of Bones offers an entertaining mix of eccentric character and macabre humor!

Haunted 8's

If you’re not already in the spirit of Halloween, then this spooky deck is certain to get you in the mood. Ghouls, Goblins, Headless horsemen, Zombies, Scarecrows, Pumpkins and more...! All packed into the October Kings Wild Shorts deck recently delivered to subscribers. A fun-filled deck brimming with artistry and ingenuity for All Hallows' Eve. The theme, colors, spooky characters and design elements that make up Haunted 8s came together perfectly!


This fascinating deck series has more sci-fi feel to it and a sinister and darker look to it. The neon inks certainly bring up a Sci-Fi feel to it. First glance, the theme of this deck you might think that this deck has a Sci-Fi theme, but designer Giovani Meroni added a Mythology twist to it. The courts feature the Gods of Space, that left us after creating the Universe. Spades are the Gods of Void, Clubs the Gods of Materia, Diamonds the Gods of Energy and Hearts the Gods of Life.


Designed by Abraham Sanchez, Skelstrument is an intriguing deck featuring the human skeleton and musical instrument. Every element from the pips, Courts and card backs have been artistically drawn marrying the human skeleton, music, and the visual representation of sound. The purple and black bar on the card faces creates an incredibly striking design when the cards are fanned, squared or flourished... tying every card together like notes on a sheet of music. Definitely a fun deck for the Halloween season.


Seafarers by Joker and the Thief is a nautical-themed deck designed by Gustavo Magalhães. The intricate artwork on the card back not only incorporates symbolically and thought-provoking imagery, but they also maintain a timeless air. The court cards are all completely custom and the themes from the back design carry over and give life to these oceanic royals. They are unrestricted by borders, taking full advantage of the space of the card. Each suit tells its own story, with each jack, queen, and king being thematically and symbolically linked.
