Ellusionist Launches Queen Bee Playing Cards on Kickstarter

In a surprising move, Ellusionist has just released their new deck, Queen Bee: Luxury Playing Cards on Kickstarter! After making hugely popular Killer Bee and Super Bee designs in the past, Ellusionist knew there was only one more level that remained unexplored... The revered monarch herself - the Queen Bee. On the campaign page,

Unlike our Killer and Super Bee decks, which feature a faint white halo around the deck's edge - Queen Bees have no border. The Queens spill over the edge in their glorious abundance.


The back design features a classic of borderless decks with repeating bees flying in opposing directions. On the top left and top right corner sports a yellow bee stands out. This little splash of yellow in a sea of black looks stunning in fans and spreads, allowing the minimal design to feel more 3-dimensional. 

The face cards display custom pips that is arranged in a completely custom way, with a hidden hive represented in 1 pip of each number card. This subtle hint is to compliment the Queen's geometric styling. 

Each court card is custom, with connecting hexagons encasing an effeminate design, like honey trapped within a single cell of the honeycomb. The lines are thin and sleek but the aura for each court card is instantly recognizable. 

The striking deck is packaged in a matte yellow tuck box with details on the sides and front debossed to create texture. The back of the tuck is foiled in black stripes featuring the life-giving Queen, taken from the Queen of clubs within the deck. 

Printed by Cartamundi on the E7 card stock. Pledge starts at $12 on Kickstarter.
