Some 10's - always fun.

These were some of the hardest because they had so many pips!

But no one has guessed the secret (with proof, not speculation)! I'm so excited to get to it, believe me!

Well, I know it was guessed earlier (by ecNate), and it seemed like a spot-on guess. Here's the proof that what we are looking at is a big picture that is formed when you arrange all of the cards in a specific order:

The "low" hearts that have been revealed occur where stratosphere meets space. I believe these are in the upper-right-hand side of the mosaic, insofar as the grading of the 3H shows the demarcation between sky and space starts in a gentle curve from upper left to lower right, and the AH is all starry space (and therefore, the Ace would appear to the right of the 3H -- the fragment we saw of the 2H makes it obvious that it would fit between the AH and 3H, so that fits with this theory, and implies that the Ace is the upper-right-hand corner of the mosiac).

The lower spades are clearly high above sea level (mountain top on 2S), and while higher spades are also above sea/ground level, I still suspect they are in the second row from the top (and the lower spades and lower hearts are in the top row) given the shading of the blue sky... I believe the shading gets lighter as we get closer to sea/ground level. Witness 10S.

The higher clubs and higher diamonds are *at* sea/ground level, showing the city above the sewer system (9C), the boats upon the sea (7C) and the dunes above buried tunnels (10D). The lower clubs and lower diamonds are *below* sea/ground level, with the AC on the ocean floor and the 2D and 3D clearly deep below ground. Also, note that the right hand edge of the illustration on the 2D fits perfectly against the left hand edge of the illustration on the 3D. Since the 3D is to the right of the 2D, that means the Ace of Diamonds is to the left of the two, which implies that the Ace of Diamonds is the lower-left-hand corner of the mosaic.

So, yeah. There it is. A mosaic. A collage. A big picture.

And, as was also noted, there are a few other decks that did something similar, although none of them anywhere near as colorfully: The Escape Map deck from USPCC and the Unrest series of decks from R.L. Tomlinson (four different decks, each with a different "big picture"). The major difference I see here is that in the Pipmen World, each card has its own self-contained illustration as well as combining to make a larger picture, whereas with the others, the illustration part of each card is indecipherable without putting it in the context of the big picture. Plus, in those other decks, the big picture was in the background, whereas with the Pipmen World, the big picture is front and center.

I like it, and I'm looking forward to getting it into my collection!

Ah, yup. Exactly. I just wasn't sure it would mimic the back of the card, but I thought I was pretty clear they all form a larger picture.

Considering I have the uncut for the first one this would be a natural additional one, especially since as an uncut you hopefully will really see the larger image. As a deck the way they bleed to the edge isn't great, but as an uncut it should be awesome.

Correct! I was hoping it would take a little longer, but Rousselle (and ecNate) have got it :) Pipmen World is made up of self-contained scenes which connect together in series to form a large picture - the Pipmen's World.

And here are another 2 cards to get us started in the second stage spoiler:

So what happens now is that Rousselle gets first crack at directing the spoilers. I will update the front page with the Uncut sheet - but only the parts we have seen so far, and he will be able to pick 2 steps following the yellow arrows (left, right, up, down) and the next cards in that direction will be revealed. I'll have some Pipmen trivia to see who gets to reveal the next ones :)

So, Rouselle, starting at the Ace of Clubs (almost the bottom right) which direction do you want to go?

Wasn't a huge fan of the original Pipmen decks but I'm loving this one.
Can't wait to see more :D

This is cool, Ben, but I wouldn't call it a first (MMD springs to mind). Can't wait to see more and I'll be there at the Kickstarter one Day 1.

You got it! Here are the next 2 to the LEFT: The 2 and 3 of clubs:

8 - 2oC and 3oC (Small).png

The next step will go to the person who is closest to guess the total number of individual Pipmen in the Pipmen World deck! (Hint, its >50, <300)

And for whoever gets it, remember you get 2 steps. So it could be right, up; or left, down; or left left. If we hit one that has already been revealed we'll just skip it and go to the next :)

Also currently locking in a launch date (likely mid Feb) - stay tuned!

145 there are 39 so far by my count and 14 of 52 cards so assuming the same proportion on the rest of the cards I calculate 145 pipmen!

There are in fact 158 unique Pipmen in their world - congratulations RichK!

Just let me know which 2 directions you want to go for the next reveal. I recommend not going down first - I'll give you that one for free :) But you can do whatever you want. If you go down outside the frame you'll flip up to the top row instead :D Or you could even go right and switch over to the left hand side...
