Besides their obvious and intended use for card games, playing cards have a long history of being used for educational purposes, which dates as far as the 15th century. Playing Card manufacturer Shuffled Ink has decided to do their part to help support the fight against the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, by producing a deck of playing cards that shares 52 helpful tips that are important for all of us to know.

The main "How to Deal with COVID-19 Coronavirus - 52 Helpful Tips" deck costs just $12, which includes free shipping within the US. The card backs have cute artwork featuring a doctor and nurse. A matching deck with alternate artwork that depicts a virus is also available for the same price.

Each playing card contains a helpful tip related to the coronavirus crisis, highlighting important precautions you can take, or sharing some other important information that is vital to know in these troubled times. You can even have a completely custom card-back featuring your own brand or image, which may be of interest to businesses wanting to use these as give-aways for employees and clients.

[b]Special offer:[/b] ~US$22 for three decks (includes US shipping) - [i]main deck plus a #SocialDistancing deck and a #AloneTogether deck[/i]

For an extra $10, you can increase your pledge to $22, and score two more traditional looking decks along with your deck of 52 Helpful Tips. These two additional decks both feature standard faces, but convey an important message on the card backs. One features the hashtag #SocialDistancing in large and bold white lettering on the black card backs. The other has a similar look but features the hashtag #AloneTogether, to capture the idea that while some of us may be alone, we are all together.
