Where do I sign??

Also, David, is there any indication of what kind of delay you're expecting on the LE Mercury decks??

I'm aware that t's more than likely going to cost more money then, but I'm going to wait until the 8th deck campaign to back these. I know that I can "pre-order" all 8 now, but it just makes more sense for myself to commit later. Great theme and good execution so far from the artist.

Any way we can view those courts at a higher resolution? They look so good!

Looks amazing! Even better than the Mercury IMO.

Unfortunately, no estimate yet. Clove Street has to do some experimentation with settings after discussion with the paper and foil manufacturers. I'm hoping they can find a solution quickly but not sure how long it will take at the moment.

I'm reluctant to post full images at a high resolution to avoid people stealing the artwork and printing knock-offs, but there is that one image of the King of Clubs showing the style and detail that is carried throughout the courts.

Yeah, that makes sense.

I backed the full set on the first Kickstarter campaign, so now it's just a waiting game for me. Do you have an ETA on when the last deck will be out?

All good. I'm more than happy to wait as long as it takes and I'm happy to double-down for Venus. I was just wary of the precedent it threatens to establish.

The plan at the moment is to run one campaign per month and get the entire series shipped out before the holidays this year.

David, just wondering if you are planning to make a limited tier for a full set of only limited edition decks. I saw in the Mercury campaign that the only way to get a full set of limited edition decks is to also pledge for a full set of standard decks but I would prefer to pledge for the 8 limited edition decks alone

He had mentioned in the first campaign that he would sell a few complete sets at the end of the campaign. Other than that one chance, you just have to jump on the limited sets as they come up. I am glad I went ahead and bit the bullet and got a full set of limted and unmited. Unfortunately, that also means I will not get the decks until the very end when the entire series is finished...

The Limited Edition set will not be available by itself (it's only available when you purchase the associated Standard Edition deck/s).

Oh, just the limited set. Well, maybe on ebay. However, it will be a long time and it would probably be cheaper to get a LE and standard set on Kickstarter than purchasing on the secondary market.

I missed my chance on the Venus SE+LE set. The good thing is that all of the SE decks are different colors and easy to get. Once I get my Mercury LE deck, it'll determine if I'll want all of the same colored hologram LE tucks from the rest of the set.

I actually like the SE better since the tuck is black. The LE blue tuck dulls the foil *pop* to my eye.
Move on, nothing to see here.

David - Apologies if this has been asked and answered before. Will there be a way to pre-order a full set of the Limited Edition decks during any of the campaigns?

Edit: I'm an idiot and the answer is literally a few posts above me.

There will be a few complete sets (Standard and LE) that will be available in the final campaign. He has also hinted that he is trying to offer a display case option for those with full sets. Buying the whole series in one go was definitely a bank -buster. But I am glad he did. I would hate to have been several in and missed one or two for whatever reason. That is a challenge on a campaign with several in the series. On the plus side, the early success is speeding the complete development and production of the series. Also hinted at a Pluto or some additional deck after the main series.
