If you’re like me, you carry a deck of cards with you to most places where you might find yourself waiting for any extended period of time. However, I dislike the plain decks of cards – it is hard to go back to plain cards once you’ve played so many games with beautiful artwork on them. Right now, there is a Kickstarter project up that might attract the attention of gamers looking for a set of playing cards with a bit of a visual twist – Wizard of Oz Playing Cards by LUX Playing Cards.
LUX has successfully funded and delivered other playing card campaigns, and is really excited about this Wizard of Oz set. You have multiple options when choosing your cards with this set, including what the outside box will look like, getting green border/background cards (Emerald City deck), and raised images. These may be better suited for collector pieces than playing, though they look smooth enough to be used in games.
The art done for these cards is by artist Suzanne van Pelt, and you can see large images on the Kickstarter page to see the intricate details that has been put into the cards. Check out the Kickstarter page if you’re looking for a high quality deck of playing cards, are an Oz fan, or both! The project ends on February 21st, so take some time to look at the pledge levels and set up your next card game night!
