SAGA Playing Cards, Viking Culture Meets Modern Aesthetics


SAGA playing cards are a unique take on the traditional standard deck of playing cards now funding on Kickstarter. The design is inspired by Nordic folklore and mythology, taking the tradition of the Viking era and giving it an elegant twist. 

 

Completely original, yet familiar, SAGA features neo-Norse art style by the Design Imperator team in Scandinavia. The themed attributes of SAGA court design are specifically noticeable in the Norse helmets, hairstyles, iconic shields, and distinctive weaponry and items held in their hands. according to the Kickstarter campaign page,
We call them jarls (not jacks), queens, and kings. You will see more variations of our SAGA face cards in future releases as we will continue to tweak and refine this design as we see fit with every new release.


The team has spent many months trying to design an elegant balance between playable functionality and thematic novelty. Something that is easily recognizable by players but unique at the same time. The result is nothing short of stunning. Three decks are on offer during the campaign: Conquerors, Raiders, and Seafarers. 

Conquerors edition is manufactured with a black matte, raw texture material, and embossed copper foil that envelops the tuck. The unique color scheme for the face card designs matches the hue of the tuck case and card backs. 



Raiders edition is manufactured with a matte red, raw texture material and embossed silver foil that wraps around the tuck. The unique color scheme for the face card designs matches the hue of the tuck case and card backs.

Seafarers edition is manufactured with a matte blue, raw texture material and embossed brass foil that surrounds the tuck case. This edition has a unique color scheme for the face card designs that matches the hue of the tuck case and card backs. 



SAGA Playing Cards will all be printed on M31 linen stock with BETA finish by MPC. SAGA will have the best card handling you’ve seen from a Design Imperator deck to date.

Pledge starts at $15 on Kickstarter. Pledging for 6 or 12 SAGA decks will have a standard box included in your reward. These boxes come in two sizes (fitting either 6 or 12 decks). Also, add ons such as metal coins and deck pouches are available.
