The Legends 202 decks by Legends Playing Cards were a set of 3 varied color decks of red, blue and black. The tuck case featured 3D embossing and a custom die-cut tuck box with interior foil. The cards designed by Mark Stutzman utilized two tone printing. Symbolism was also referenced for each deck with gold and black for the sun and land, silver and blue for the moon and heavens, and red on white for the double crown encompassing upper and lower Egypt. There are only 3,202 decks printed per color of Legends 202 Egyptian Edition. The decks were also hinted at containing hidden secrets, similar to prior decks. While they did include a marking system for identifying cards from the card back, there were flaws in the clubs suit where the 8 and 9 have the same markings on the back (ribs of the hound). This error then caused the 10 to read as a 9, Jack as 10 and Queen as Jack. While the King of clubs returns to the proper markings, this is a total of 4 cards that provide the wrong information. A secret webpage was also made available with clues to this and other secrets: http://legendsplayingcards.com/pages/a6q6wz Legends #202 - Egyptian Edition 1.

Ellusionist information: In 2012, Peter McKinnon and Daniel Madison collaborated on a video project in the dry lake-beds of Las Vegas, not quite realising at that time such a simple meeting of two creative minds would lead them to The KINGS deck. Whenever Peter and Daniel work together, waves are made and a unique creative vessel is opened. The Kings deck is the ultimate representation of their joint creative forces. Peter and Daniel spent a lot of time brainstorming, designing and creating their ideal deck of cards… Cards that would be fit for Kings. Peter and Daniel were meticulous and scrupulous with their requirements for the deck. They tested numerous stocks and finishes until they found and created a unique Kings finish and stock. The cards were traditionally cut to further advance gambling techniques, they are sturdy yet flexible enough for cardistry and sleight-of-hand. They wanted a box that would look like a block of gold - direct from the Kings share - with a deck of cards perfectly designed to cater for both minimalistic beauty and a stunning design, but it didn’t stop there… Peter and Daniel decided to make the Kings deck a secret weapon right out of the box… Readily stacked in Mnemonic AND fully marked so that not only would the performer be able to identify every singe card in the deck by the back alone, but also have the ability perform instant Mnemonic miracles. They added a double-backer and two unique and personalised jokers, and on top of that, they lost the ad-card and replaced it with an Angle Z Gaff card. Two years in the making, Peter and Daniel returned to Las Vegas to celebrate their creation and film a heist that would represent their collaborative brilliance.
WhiteWolf - Premium Vodka that lends itself to design as stark and crisp as the Russian Tundra. Lead designer Mike Clarke took a very different angle with this deck, giving it a modern, minimalist twist. Sporting half-shaded pips and single-line drawing courts, these cards capture the purity of fine vodka itself. A speckled paper overprint on thin cotton stock give match a truly luxury feel with an otherwise austere composition. Although the brand WhiteWolf was created just for these cards, we truly believe that its magic should be bottled. This deck looks like it was created to be sold with bottles of WhiteWolf Vodka, the one deck in the Prohibition Series that comes across as commercial design. If you like the simplicity of the Madison Rounders back design, you are going to love these. WhiteWolf is available exclusively in the Prohibition Box Set.

USPCC made a slight mistake in packaging the decks. They were initially inserted with the front side exposed through the cut out, instead of the backside. Before the packages were sent back to USPCC for correction, backers were offered the choice to take the error deck or wait for the correct one. Approximately 250 backers took the error deck. The precise number stills need to be verified
