Inspired by the incredible NZ nature and traditional culture, this is our attempt to create something fresh, and unique.
From the makers of the Unrest Series of playing cards comes a new exciting series based on life and death. This series focuses on several historical events where life and death was a major factor. In this case, we honor the historic ship known simply as RMS Titanic.
Funded as a Kickstarter project on October 29, 2014 with $37,460 pledged from 582 backers, this was available in a Life and Death tuck options (each with custom stickers for First, Second and Third Class, plus crew) and unbranded version based on the Death tuck and a Deluxe edition tuck. Using the theme of the titanic each deck the Life/Death tucks used a unique and custom variable seal that included the name, age, gender and serial number (ticket number) for each person on board, with their survival or death indicated by the tuck used (Life or Death). An accompanying 'boarding pass' in the form of a custom card with more details of the person were also available for each person. The decks were created and designed by Robert Tomlinson of Tomlinson Playing Cards and were printed by Expert Playing Card Company.
This PCDB Entry is for the Titanic Unbranded Deck which represents the quantity needed to make the 2500 minimum quantity. 276 decks would be printed plus the regular 10% overrun would make a total possible quantity of 526 decks.
Classic Aladdin 1001 Design - Now in White Long hailed as one of the most well-liked and best-handling decks to come from the presses at USPCC, the Aladdin 1001 deck is a thing of pure beauty. Originally designed over 100 years ago and out of print for the past several years, The Blue Crown is exceptionally proud to offer the same elegant design and top-quality handling, now available for the first time ever in a striking white back design. Smooth as Silk Ivory Finish Next to the design, the best quality of the White Aladdin deck is the handling. The stock has a perfect blend of snap and thickness for long-term handling without feeling clunky. The ivory finish gives the cards a buttery smoothness and shine that provides elegance at the card table, sophistication for your magic routines, and makes your flourishes extra bright and eye-catching. Built-in Effects and Extra Video We have built some incredibly powerful features and effects into the White Aladdins - allowing you to perform several different mind-blowing routines straight out of the box. In order to get the most out of your deck while preserving the integrity of these secrets, the bonus video will be offered with all White Aladdin purchases with a subtotal of $20 or greater.

Grotesk Macabre is the evolution of "Grotesque", which was the UC2014 annual deck. Taking this deck as a starting point, I tried to create my own vision of the Underworld. Although a joyful and positive person myself, I had always been attracted to dark themed artwork. I find fascinating how artists throughout the centuries have imagined the world of the dead and how they dealt with the greatest fear of mankind. In Grotesk Macabre I tried to combine the darkest of all themes with the heavy elegance of baroque and the pointy, flamboyant Gothic art.
