Unanchored Standard Edition
The tuck case is my favorite of all of his decks so far. A deep blue, minimalistic design with a single anchor on the front. Broken, to pieces.
The cards themselves are printed on USPCC Premium Crushed stock with that sweet, sweet magic finish. The back design is speckled, as if an anchor exploded across the entirety of it. Unlike Ryan's other decks, this one doesn't appear to be marked. At least, it fully passes the riffle test and I see no discernable differences between different cards.
The faces are pretty awesome, in my opinion. Each card features a broken pip and it somehow just "fits" into the design. The only routine idea I've come up with so far, utilizing it, is using it as a one-way identifier because even with the Threes, where the broken pip's in the middle, it's craftily broken in such a way that it's one-way and not symmetrical. I'm sure there's other uses too, but this is my initial thought.
There are also some gaffs included, mostly focusing on duplicate cards and who doesn't like duplicate cards right?
The deck consists of 56 cards:
- 52 playing cards
- Two identical Jokers, except one has a 3 of Spades on it's back
- A duplicate 7 of Hearts
- A duplicate 2 of Clubs with a custom "hand" on it's back
Where to buy?
The deck is not currently for individual sale, the 'official' release is still pending. However, if you pick up a collector's bundle you'll be able to get one early!
