Jewels For Your Crown
One of the peasants prayed to the supreme divinity to witness the world of the gods and be convinced of the existence of immortality. The gods, of course, couldn't allow a human into their abode.
But taking pity on the peasant, one of the gods took the cup of immortality and sprinkled it around the world. Falling, the spray turned into gorgeous blue stones - sapphires - and most of the drops, as legend has it, fell on Sri Lanka. The color of Sapphire royal blue prevails in the decks and the boxes are finessed with blue foil overflows. What's more, the cards are designed with all new faces.
Yes, you heard right: new card faces. In our deck you'll see a twist on the classic images of Kings, Queens and Jacks, with the decks representing the opposition of the Kings of East and West - bringing the battles of ancient kings to your gaming table! Backers who opt for the luxury box will receive our traditional box for two decks with dealer coin. The main stretch goal remains halfway.
