THE TORCH RED ENIGMA DECK

THE RED ENIGMA DECK
THE RED ENIGMA DECK

Last year we were successful at launching and funding the first Mexican designed playing cards specialized in cardistry and magic in kickstarter. Since that day we have been working nonstop on getting the first version of our deck known in the cardistry and magic community with huge success, so much that people in the community started to ask us if we were thinking about creating a second version of our deck.

That got us really excited, so we decided to improve on the enigma playing cards, we took the feedback that we got at some community events (like Cardistry Con 2017) and got to work.

We didn’t want to create another simple recolor and we didn’t want to change what made the original deck special in the first place, so we added more features to the deck on top of the feedback our fans gave us.

———————————————————————————

SO WHAT’S NEW?

COLORS!
COLORS!

COLOR

Cardistry and Magic are very visual arts, so when thinking about what would be the best color for the back design, we went for the brightest and most vivid red we could, an amazing TORCH RED.

We also wanted to keep the balance of the colors in the deck so we changed all the black color on the deck of cards to an amazing ELECTRIC VIOLET

NO OTHER DECK USES THIS COMBINATION OF COLORS.

———————————————————————————

THE NEW ACES
THE NEW ACES

 THE ACES

Fans were praising the original Ace of spades that we designed for the Black Enigma deck, so we redesigned the other 3 aces to sport the same kind of style on them.

All of the 4 aces are now custom and sport an all seeing eye.

Check out our add-ons at the end to be able to snag a shirt with one of the aces designs!

RED ON RED!
RED ON RED!

THE TUCK BOX

We also had to upgrade our amazing original tuck box to a full Red on Red tuck box, with foil on the front eye icon and the enigma logo.

———————————————————————————

SECRETS!
SECRETS!

SECRETS

Printing with Cartamundi has allowed us to add 2 more cards to our original uncut sheet.

We are keeping the identity of those 2 extra cards a secret, rest assured, they will be useful cards that will compliment your magic and cardistry needs.

We are also tweeking some of the old secrets our original deck had and adding some more secret sauce on top.

———————————————————————————

STOCK AND FINISH
STOCK AND FINISH

 STOCK AND FINISH

Taking into account all the feedback that we got from attendants of Cardistry Con 2017 and after trying the amazing Small Batch Deck we decided to partner with Cartamundi.

Of course we immediately decided to use the B9 True Linen Finish

———————————————————————————

FULFILLMENT

Last year we were overwhelmed by the amount of packages that we had to send. We learned a lot from the last project, so now we are not going to mess around with the fulfillment, we chose the best guys for this task.

We have enlisted the help of our friends at Art of Play to fulfill all of the orders for the USA and CANADA backers.

Fulfillment for México, Latin America and the rest of the world will be handled by us, Enigma, shipping cost is significantly lower from México to those countries.

———————————————————————————

AND WHAT ARE WE KEEPING FROM THE PAST DESIGN?

SIDE BY SIDE

THE BEST STUFF

We are keeping all the amazing features that you guys loved from the first version of our deck.

Heres the list:

  • Mnemonica stack out of the box!
  • Marking system (Fully marked deck).
  • Reveal Cards (We even added a couple more for our magicians fans).
  • Optical illusion on the back design to enhance movement for cardistry moves and hide the marking system.
  • Bold – retro style.
  • Amazing tuck box.

 ANYTHING ELSE?

We are aiming to make this a limited release starting at 2000 decks (although if we reach some stretch goals that could change a bit).

The velvet surface its stain resistant and the faux leather is also very resistant to liquids so its wood core will be very well protected. This low-maintenance Pad just as our deck its made to last you a long time.

Made to hold 12 decks stacked sideways, once you open the sliding top lid you will have easy access to your Enigma decks or any other decks you desire to keep safe.

Some words from the team at Aeon Magic:

“As an avid playing card fanatic using a white cardboard box to store decks with high value just didn’t seem right to me, I always wanted a nice alternative, but I knew making a box would not quite fix it, others have tried just that, I knew it had to be more than a simple box and then the idea hit me. Frankly I couldn’t be happier with the outcome”

Risks and challenges

Our design its complete and ready for production. The main risk and challenge would be to overcome production time and fulfilment process once the project gets successfully funded. We have spent months studying other successful and unsuccessful Playing Card projects by other creators that have gone before us to learn from their strengths and weaknesses.

We believe that with our new print partner Cartamundi and the fulfillment services of Art of Play we can overcome any kind of problem that may arise.
