CHAO Imperial Yellow Edition Playing Cards

CHAO Imperial Yellow Edition Playing Cards by MPC is a historical deck seeking funds on Kickstarter. This unique deck of cards pays tribute to four of the greatest and most recognized dynasties in Chinese history – Han, Tang, Ming, and Qing. 

Each dynasty has an outstanding and reputable Emperor, Empress, and General, each with their own notorious traits and fascinating stories. The CHAO depicts these influential men and women that were renowned and celebrated from each of the four famous dynasties.

The fourth edition of the CHAO playing card deck series takes on an imperial yellow colorway. According to the campaign page,
Yellow is a very important and traditional color in China and back in the days of the dynasty, yellow was a forbidden color as only high-ranking officials and the Emperor’s body guards with high honor wore this color. The color represents power, royalty and prosperity which we have used in this edition of CHAO.


Inside, each suit i.e. Spades, Hearts, Clubs, and Diamonds reflects one of the four chosen dynasties (Han, Tang, Ming and Qing).

The Chinese Emperors, Empresses, and Generals for the King, Queen, and Jack cards all represent great power, wealth and wisdom, each with different traits and personalities and each dynasty holds its own trademarks to differentiate them from others. Inspired by these different elements, each Emperor features distinct clothing and accessories from their era, Empress’s have different hairpieces and holds the instrument that they played and Generals wear armor and yield the weapon used to fight in their notorious battles.

The 4 custom aces include very detailed Chinese patterns. MPC also added a Chinese dragon on the ace of spades – a symbolism of imperial power and strength.

The stunning tuck box completes the overall aesthetics of the deck and comes in a carefully chosen color to represent Imperial Yellow with embossing and gold foil stamping used to symbolize wealth and royalty.

The deck is manufactured by MPC in China on the M32 linen air stock with the highly sought after BETA finishing. Only 2500 will be produced. Pledge starts at $14 on Kickstarter.
