Explorers by Card Experiment - Now Live (relaunch)

Unread postby badpete69 » Wed Jan 11, 2017 3:23 pm  



Just got an email from Card experiment on this new project

At Card Experiment, other than pursuing our vision of making playing cards a medium for communicating, and provoking thought on complex ideas and themes, we are also dedicated to our mission of collaboration and co-creation, especially with artists all over the world, in all our projects.
These beliefs, once again, are exemplified in our current offering, the Explorers deck. In the Explorers deck, we toyed with the concepts of space exploration, first contact, and many other sci-fi tropes.

We will be launching our first Kickstarter project, Explorers Playing Cards, on January 18, 2017. The Explorers deck would be incomplete without your support. We appeal to all of our supporters out there to lend us your helping hands so that we can make the Explorers deck a reality.

See you on Kickstarter January 18 2017!

I didn't expect to see this happening. Looks interesting and there should be little doubt I'll be looking in on this on the eighteenth. I do enjoy the Sci-fi.

This one is live but again the shipping costs seems rather high and I'm guessing having the project in HKD won't help matters. $45,000 stretch goal for the third deck is probably an unattainable goal as well.

Oh man, how did I miss this the first time? I hope they're going to offer the design with the colour highlights!

Good luck with that, KS is already over saturated with decks and some are struggling.

The first ticks didn't do anything at all. The colors kinda turned me away. The revamp looks amazing. I may have grab these.

I can't seem to find this project, did they fail to launch? or am I blind?

I just got email about it, delayed to now launch May 4:

We will be relaunching the EXPLORERS Playing Cards on Thursday, May 4 at 9AM EDT. There will be lots of Early Bird rewards available!

Below are some of the revamped Explorers features:

EXPLORERS DOMINATION - Red foil tuckcase on thick matte black stock
EXPLORERS REVELATION - Gold foil tuckcase on thick matte black stock

The Explorers deck would be incomplete without your support. We appeal to all of our supporters out there to lend us your helping hands so that we can make the Explorers deck a reality.

It's on. Also no longer 'Bicycle' and Live, so maybe OP and thread title can be updated?
