I love the artistic decks available from Art of Play, and this is one of their best.
Ultimate deck is truly a work of art - literally! All 54 cards in this deck are unique works of art,
and feature different images by a range of artists. Given all the surprises inside, little wonder
one side of the tuck box says "Relish the Experience of the Bewildered", and the other: "The Marvel
of the Odd Minded Await". The tuck box is embossed, with silver foil, and a custom stamp seal - so
it's a very stylish look right from the moment you first get this in your hands.
The Dan &
Dave team describe the concept this way here: "Every single card in the Ultimate Deck is represented
with a story, incorporating classical art, as well as works from todays leading illustrators."
The deck was the result of a collaboration with award-winning design firm, Stranger & Stranger,
whose name you'll also find incorporated on the intricate back design. Some cards may look a little
macabre or dark, but the majority of the artworks are simply gorgeous and attractive images.
I never really understood the sense of an uncut sheet until now, but decks like this have
convinced me otherwise, and now I can appreciate their value and artistic merit.
in the market for something creative, unique, unusual, memorable, and hard to find or duplicate,
it's hard to think of a better place to look than the decks from Art of Play, and this is a fine
example of their quality. - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
This cards are really beautyfull. But theire is some illuminati symbolism i don't like, a women
hiding one eye, the pyramide with the eye on the packet, and in the back of each card the scripture
that suposedly say illuminate in any sense you look at it is illisible but very similar to the
famous illuminati writing . Then the four of hearts is really a call to pedophilia, it shows a child
girl with the pantie relieved and a big heart in her ass. That's insane but subtelly desguised as a
work of art.
The other cards are realy beautyfull and that's the only deck i know with such
art (there is a card with klimt painting for example) that's why i put three stars, i'll use this
cards for an index and will delete the cards i don't like. I still don't like the back of the cards.
That's wher i have focalised my attention when seeing this.
