Blood Kings V2 Playing Cards
Stacked in mnemonica straight out of the box, these cards ooze sophistication from their warm, blood-red backs.
For this stunning second edition, we've changed the paper vault for these beautiful cards to an under-stated, minimal tuck case, blood-soaked with a deep red Blood Kings logo proudly on the front.
Some Kings like opulence, true Kings prefer power...
The sides read 'Live Like Kings' - Die Like Kings', a nod to the previous best-selling versions and a final goodbye from this influential series.
The Angle Z Gaff is dead, but the double-backer lives on.
Instead, we've added a duplicate Queen of Hearts in each deck that sits proudly on top of your stack. Behind every great King, is a powerful Queen.
Blood Kings. Only in death can they live forever.
Stock up now.
DECK STAYS We collaborated with Dan & Dave Buck to bring you special Kings-style deck stays.
These lazer-etched pieces of solid brass slide inside your box to create a reinforced roll-cage for your tuck.
This helps stop your perfectly finished box from getting bent & screwed up in your pocket. Maintaining the quality of your cards in exquisite style.
A must-have for everyones pocket.
I really like the Blood kings, how they handle and everything, so why only two Stars? The problem is the cut. The face of the cards is not very critical but the back design on my decks is not centered. The white borders have different dimensions which is clearly visible. I've even been asked if it is a marked deck...
Don't get me wrong, I really love the Blood kings but for that price I thought I'll get a better quality
Ellusionist always impressed me with the quality of their card, but this is the first time I'm actually pretty disappointed. The cards are a bit stiff. Now after a week of use they start to feel broken in a little and become more like the Rounders and Artifice I'm using. The red color on the face side is more brownish than red, like dried up blood, which is not what I expected and it gives the cards quite a dirty look. And the biggest let-down is how the cards are cut. I can see with the naked eye how coarse the edges of the cards are and it almost looks like the edges are crumbled. If you ask me, the knives used to cut these cards were well overdue to get sharpened, which makes the deck feel like the edges of the cards are worn out.
They feel amazing in my hands. Nice and broken in when you first open them. By far my favorite deck,
