OMG please be Metalluxe.... :drool:

@TwoPieceFeed - Innovation is an important value, but it's not the only thing that matters in a project, in my opinion.
I've did a lot of different projects oriented on innovation, but this time I wanted to do something different: the idea here was to see what would happen if I decide to make "old", never published decks, with all the experience I've maturated in those 4+ years of playing cards design. With a new back, box, printer, story ... I had a lot of fun, and hopefully backers will have too.

Anyway - "New" projects will come, "Delirium: The Lost Decks" is an exception :)
I've started a new one, but it's an Odissey and it's taking ages...

Thank you for your kind words and feedback! It's always useful.

I'm happy you like Pantheon & Eva, are probably my favourite ones as well.

@Vasta - I'm not considering Metalluxe for this project - but it's definitely interesting for a future project.
I have to ask USPCC about that --- to be honest, I know just a little about Metalluxe and I need to gather informations before launch a project that include it - so far I know only that it's awesome and expensive!

Question, on your TWI website, were decks like Eva, Pantheon, etc. the same price when you launched or these are marked up now of the stock you have left?

@Myv - you can see the all the "launch" prices on the campaign pages :-)
Usually, my decks cost a lot less on Kickstarter - I do that on purpose because I think that backers deserve the best offer possible, since they're giving me money in advance, without know how the deck will turn in the end.

Pantheon, for example, was €23 on Kickstarter (free shipping within US) and $65 on my site (plus shipping).

I usually don't allow preorders on Limited Editions until the Kickstarter is delivered (for example, Lunatica Chimera/Phoenix editions are unavailable for now) - when I publish on my site, the prices are already the "retail value". Sometimes I also raise prices of the limited editions a bit when I'm really low stock.

I can control the price of Limited Editions since I don't wholesale them (of course some retailers can buy them on Kickstarter and resell later).

I hope it helps! :-)

Myv, it's best to get decks during a launch/release as the aftermarket is harsher on the rarer limited edition decks.

But generally you can still find the most common decks at fair prices after campaigns are over, maybe a few dollars more.

Again a nobrainer for me, i like the decks from Giovanni a lot.

Yes, all the decks have a similar style, but every deck is different except the 2 limited decks of the Lunatica campaign and now the Abolute deck where it's a tuck swap. For me this is NOT that "same old, same old" as there are so many creators who uses Standard faces (maybe recolored) and just work on a back design + Ace and Jokers, or those creators who do one deck with 2-3 different back colors.
So bottom line for me is that Giovanni puts a lot more effort in his decks then others do, while almost no one is complaining about their work :roll:

The color for the ascension card backs are crying out for metaluxe!

Anyway I’m just happy to have gotten in on time to snag one of the last early birds :)

No coin this time?

@Azid - Thank you for the positive and kind feedback! I really appreciate it!

@Mankin @Robinsonwood @Serubi - Thank you for your support and kind words!

@Jufin - Ascension back work better with inks because it have super thin details that won't work with foil and it have 3 colors (dark metallic blue, metallic azure/silver and bright gold) - if the metallic inks will be like Eva, I think it will be really nice anyway :mrgreen:

Oh, since you and @Vasta made me curious, I've asked USPCC about Metalluxe yesterday, and they already responded.
There are some things I have to understand better, but so far I like what I saw about it. There may be a Metalluxe TWI deck in future :-) Thank you for the hint, guys.

About the coin .... Soon ;-)

@Portcullis - Hints? What hints??? :uggrin:

The Odyssey would be a cool theme for you to explore, I'd prefer the Book of the Dead.

Well you've kinda already done Greek -- not to death, and there is BUCKETS of source material, so I'm not complaining as such -- Egyptian just seems like a natural progression. I'd actually love to see you take on Sobek.
