Innovative Deck Turns Playing Cards Into a 'Puzzle Hunt'


IF you love puzzles AND Playing Cards, the Enigma Puzzle Hunt Playing Cards is definitely for you! This innovative deck is designed by David Kwong (Instagram: @davidkwong), New York Times crossword puzzle constructor & magician, and Dave Shukan (Google Site), master puzzle-maker.


Magic, secret codes, and ciphers. ENIGMAS combines all of these exciting elements within puzzles within puzzles. All these in a luxury deck of a custom themed deck based on an estate shrouded in mystery called Riverbank. According to the Kickstarter campaign page,
ENIGMAS are themed on a fascinating historical place -- a mysterious estate outside of Chicago called Riverbank. Over one hundred years ago, the scientists at Riverbank worked on cryptography projects: the estate was filled with secret messages and codes. And exotic animals like alligators, peacocks, monkeys and bears roamed the property!

The hunt begins with four very special cards found within the deck, each with its own puzzle for you to solve. Solving all four puzzles will unlock an incredible, multilayered, eight-step puzzle hunt. Combine answers from every puzzle you've solved along the way and you will reveal the final, meta-puzzle answer. A true puzzler’s paradise!


The deck is FULLY functional and beautifully illustrator Billy French. Billy has masterfully captured all of the bizarre and beautiful elements into the ENIGMAS design. The card backs are adorned with historically accurate imagery from the Riverbank estate, like its windmill and lighthouse. Owls, representing wisdom and learning, are perched on the bookshelves, guarding its secrets.


The ENIGMAS face cards look pretty much standard and familiar, however, they are far from that. To keep the ENIGMAS deck authentic with its historical past, The United States Playing Card Company has provided the historical artwork for the cards' faces that date back to the early 1900s. How cool is that?! Squeezer Court Cards!


Enter through the gates, guarded by eagles to enter the exciting world of ENIGMAS. The elegance of ENIGMAS begins with the tuck box. It was carefully and meticulously designed to be the perfect home for these beautiful playing cards.



Produced in collaboration with Chris Chelko, ENIGMAS will be manufactured by The United States Playing Card Company using sustainable forest paper, starch-based laminating glue, and vegetable-based printing inks.

NOW on Kickstarter for $15.
