[Buyer's Guide] Dead on Paper/Chris Ovdiyenko

Unread postby Justin O. » Wed Apr 12, 2017 3:45 pm  

Dead on Paper productions from Chris Ovdiyenko is one of my favorite designers (Oracle was the first Kickstarter I ever back, and if you look closely at the bottom of the 'Yes/No' gaff card there is an easter egg there I am rather proud of) with an immediately identifiable 'etching press' aesthetic the lends so much to his decks making sure they are consistently community favorites.

Dead on Paper/Chris Ovdiyenko decks:

Calaveras
Calaveras (Bicycle Branded)
Calaveras (Midnight)

Oracle
Oracle (Bicycle Branded)
Oracle (Shadow Edition; of 666)

Arcana (Light; of 7000)
Arcana (Dark; of 7000)
Arcana (Expansion)*
Arcana (Light; Full Tarot; Gilded) (In Production)
Arcana (Dark; Full Tarot; Gilded) (In Production)



* Arcana Expansion deck is not a playing card deck. It is the remainder of the tarot cards not included in the poker decks but needed to create a full tarot deck. each one includes the remain tarot cards for both the Light and the Dark decks.
**If anyone has a complete list for other designers/companies feel free to PM it to me and I will start a thread for it!**

For Arcana decks, there were 14k total decks manufactured (7k light, 7k dark). Of these, 4,200 of each color (4.2k/7k) received an official numbered and signed backer card, but there were a total of 7k printed for each color. For the uncut versions of the deck, 60 uncuts of each color (light/dark) were produced. Direct communication with artist (Chris Ovdiyenko) is the source for the numbers.

An unknown number of expansion decks were printed which contains both light and dark versions of the Major Arcana tarot cards. This deck is for those who desired a complete tarot set when combined with the light and dark main cards from the respective decks. In addition, there was made available 2 custom 2-piece boxes to hold the full tarot set of each color. This allowed purchasers to manually remove the cards to combine cards from the Arcana deck for light/dark and the respective light/dark cards from the Arcana expansion deck, this then creates a full tarot set that is then stored together as a new complete tarot deck with this sturdy 2-piece box.

Oracle Shadow had 666 printed.
