Psychonauts, a special edition deck from Joker and the Thief in collaboration with Art of Play. Launched as a Kickstarter campaign back in 2021, this psychadelically themed deck takes us on a journey to explore realities beyond the perception of our five senses.
This deck embodies just that, and it's totally psychedelic and totally groovy! Not to copy from the campaign page too much, but Psychonauts is a nostalgic tribute to the 1960s psychedelic movement and the new age of spiritualism. That, and drugs.
The design, by Pedro Oyarbide -- who's designed several Joker and the Thief decks, keeps with the aesthetic style of several of their other decks. The difference here is the vibrant Pantone colors that are used, and the psychedelic art form. Metallic inks were still used to create an eye catching shimmer, in all it's glory.
Fully custom Aces and courts, and custom pips on all of the face cards, there's not a detail left untouched. Even this deck's Jokers, keeping with the standard Joker and Thief motif, take on an inward-journey form and are waiting for us in the spirit realm!
The deck consists of 56 cards:
- 52 playing cards
- Two non-identical jokers; one a joker, the other a thief
- Two ad cards
Where to buy?
Last I checked, you should be able to pick up Psychonauts at Joker and the Thief. The last price tag I saw for this deck was set at $20.00.
