Royal. Stunning. Green.
King Arthur Playing Cards by Riffle Shuffle is a collaboration with Studio Muti inspired by the times of kings, queens, and cavalier knights all the way back to the 5th century’s Britain. The King Arthur Emerald Saga sports a green colorway embellished with gold and green foils embossed both on the outside, and inside of the box.
Inside, the green card back are printed with Bronze Metallic Ink. The overall design of the back is similar to the back of the box, showing a mirrored image of King Arthur riding a horse. The court cards are the pièce de la résistance of the entire deck. The first thing that catches the eye is the unified structure of a gold-lined background running on a diagonal of each of the cards. Throughout the vertical axis of the card run the images of the court members, mirrored on the top and bottom half of the card. Each of the characters is absolutely unique, starting from their face, their attire, all the way to the objects that they are carrying.
The Ace of Spades is completed in different colors for each of the types of deck. In the Green version, the ace has a green background and golden outlines and details. The Joker cards are called “Jesters”. The jesters of the King Arthur deck look more sophisticated as if providing clever advice to our Great King.
King Arthur Playing Cards will be forged by United States Playing Card Company with Air-Cushion Finish on Bee Casino Stock. Limited to 2500 Decks with Foiled Number Seals. Available from riffleshuffle.com for $15.
