Killer Bee Playing Cards
PLEASE NOTE: Killer Bees are now expertly printed on Cartamundi B9 stock, with their true linen finish. Same great design with longer lasting stock.
Killer Bees are the mutant hybrid of timid European honey bees and their African cousins.
Like all superhero stories, the Killers were introduced to Brazil by mad scientists to help re-populate their diminishing Bee population.
But no-one could contain them...
In 1957, 26 swarms escaped quarantine and declared war on the western hemisphere.
Danger lurking in the skies, these villains will stalk their victims for up to 1/2 a mile..
We wanted to capture the darker bodies of these cold-face killers in our deck. Creating a harsh black back with toxic-waste yellow honeycomb spilt on the back.
The black faces display custom pips and hold a sinister simplicity. Like something you'd expect to see on a discarded barrel of methylamine.
Killer Bees are the result of an unsanctioned lab experiment when toxic-waste spilled into a delicate hive of Honey Bees.
Get them before they get you.
A portion of each Killer Bee Deck sold is given to the IUCN organization. TO DATE: sales of our Bee decks have funded over $18,000 to support honey bees. Listen to Ellusionist’s Chris Ramsay tell why Bees are so important to us.
Very nice deck i love the bee themed style of the deck. Also the thin stock handles very well,the only negative i would have for this deck would be that the pips and the style of the deck make it hard for people who aren't used to it get confused with which card is which. other than that great deck
Beautifully simple design with the quality you expect from the US Playing Card company. Box has a really nice matte feel to it.
There's nothing bad about this deck. It supports a great cuase, the faces are uniquely designed. The back design is awesome. The stock is soft, the finish is smooth and doesn't stiffen the stock. This is one of the best cheaper decks I have ever handled when stacked up against the bicycle standards.
