Illuminati Inspired Playing Cards
Besides being a gadget geek, Harry Potter fan and bacon lover I also have a thing for secret societies. Not any kind of secret society but most specific ‘The Illuminati’. I don’t remember when I first heard of them but since then I have read about them in Dan Brown’s book, ‘Angels and Demons’ and in several articles here and there.
I’m such a geek that I carry the American one dollar bill with the All-Seeing Eye on it in my wallet. I live in an euro country so I always have this bill on me for if I happen upon a conversation about secret societies. So far I have used the bill one time to show the All-Seeing Eye on it.
The team at theory11 is also so fascinated by secret societies that they designed playing cards inspired by them. The art on the box, card deck and the royal cards are inspired by a mix of secret societies, magic, hermeticism and mythology.
Not only is the design of this playing card deck very unique and mysterious, the quality is superb.
The box is printed on imported paper 40% thicker than normal tuck cases – and has metallic accents on SIX sides. The art is embossed in 20 locations and coated with a matte varnish to enhance durability.
I can see this card deck being liked by comic fans, the theory11 logo reminds me of a team of superheroes. The themes used in the design of the cards are the same as a lot of comic stories; secret societies, mythology and an awesome design.
This card deck is so nice that I’m inclined to order two, one as a collection item and one to actually use. Playing Texas hold ’em with this set of playing cards would be totally awesome.
One deck costs $5.95, with 6 decks you get 10% off and with 12 decks 15% off, not a bad deal for such a wonderful designed card deck.
