Yep, there were a few left after an hour, but they all went in the next 30 minutes or so.

More than 150+150 Red & Black have sold at this point, less than 100 each remain. If not sold by 5PM tomorrow, they will be available during the Player's Edition campaign on KS.

There is going to be an Ambassador's Players Edition on Kickstarter? I must have missed the memo. :?

Here, Mike just said it. And I think Lotrek said as much before.

Although I'm not sure whether they'll keep the $38 price tag.

I believe that a Kickstarter campaign is imminent where the remaining Ambassador Red/Gold decks will be offered.

However it also sounds like that there may be a standard version of the deck available which will be the main focus of the campaign with the Red/Gold decks being add-ons.

Yes, exactly. The KS campaign will be for a standard "player's" edition printed by EPCC. Some Ambassadors decks will be offered as add-ons.

I am really interested to see what EPCC makes of Lotrek's rather innovative deck designs. Is it going to be using foil, or metalic ink or something else? Don't spoil it for me and tell me now. I will enjoy seeing it when it goes live.

Also, just a reminder for those that want to load up on those nice Ambassador Collector decks, you have less than a day to grab them at $38 each. I am betting that is the last time you will see them offered at that price. Also, the 4 deck limit is now off, so if you want to get a brick of each....while they last. I really like the red stock version. it just blows me away.

99% it will be Monday 23 Oct. at 5:00pm EST. It will be a short campaign, not more than 2 weeks (maybe less) and the deck will have some differences from the collector's edition. It will be more suited for playing and/or magicians. I want to combine perfect usability with as much customization as possible, staying within the frame of standard courts.

As I've mentioned before, AMBASSADORS is the first deck in my "Standard series". These decks will all be based on my rendition of the standard courts but each one will be a completely different work in its whole. The Standard series will have two sub-categories, the Collector's edition and the player's edition. The Collector's edition will always be considerably cheaper than the rest of my "homemade" crazy decks.

I thought you stated you weren't using Kickstarter anymore, now all of a sudden you are a launching another project there. Well at least it's an affordable deck.

I wondered since the tuck said Collectors Edition would there be any other editions but I see now that there will be a player's edition. Good thing I didn't go overboard.

I said I won't be using KS to fund the decks I'm printing myself because until I 100% stabilize my production methods I don't want to have people waiting forever to get their decks.

jerichoholic can live without water but not without complaining. :lol:

Is the serial number of the decks followed with the time they ordered (like first person placed their order get 1/100 ...) or it is just random? :shock:

I'd like to get either deck #1 or #100. Beyond that, I don't have a preference.

Always following the time they were ordered but if you ordered within the first minutes, you may get higher numbers than what you would expect. If you consider that a huge number of decks is gone within minutes you understand that between 30seconds there can be 50 numbers difference.
