There are a few really nice decks we’ve not featured before that are currently available in the UK. Let’s start with the Nightshade Limited Edition deck.
As it’s name suggests it is a limited edition of only 5,000 decks so should be fairly collectable. But just look at the gorgeous colours! The court cards are nicely tinted too – and apparently the actual design is a bit of a mystery! I think this looks fantastic, and only £8.99.
I’ve recently enjoyed watching Spectre (the new Bond movie) and this limited edition Espionage deck would fit in well to that world! There’s a smart embossed tuck case and metal/ink printing on the cards. It looks great and handles well, but isn’t guaranteed to give you a license to kill! £18.99
And if you like this new foil treatment on your cards, check out what happens to a classic Rider Back when it gets the Luxe metallic look.
And for another ‘new technology’ on your playing cards, have a look at the Grid 2.0 Limited Edition UV ink deck.
This isn’t a new deck – but a really cool way of displaying/storing your prize deck. Have a look at these Acrylic Playing Card Cases. These would look so smart on your shelf. £7.99 (but with reductions as you buy more than one).
(They look especially nice with the new Luxx Palme decks in them!)
Final mention this month goes to the Elemental series. Pictured here is the Elemental Wind Deck – a striking and refined looking deck with an almost fractal like back design.
The series also includes Elemental Fire Deck and Elemental Earth Deck, but I think the Wind is the nicest – and not just because I’m a Gemini (which is apparently a wind sign!). They’re all very collectable and a reasonable £8.50 per deck.
That’s our selection of the latest Bicycle cards for this month. Seen any we’ve missed? Or got strong feelings about these? Let us know!
