The dark masters that control the postal system delivered a strange package to me a few days back. Contained in the package was carved box, inside that box, a set of cursed cards. I am only of the lucky few to have received a set of Alchemy Moon's Elite Cuss Cards, and there are few words to describe it all, so I will leave it to a few pictures to tell the story....

Let me answer your question Gary - there is some confusion over the exclusivity of the Cuss cards. I think that, in a moment of exhaustion I stated that I 'may not' be making any more. Well, to put the record straight. I did make an additional 13 sets, to coincide with the Alchemy Moon Relaunch. I was also under some degree of pressure from people who had become close friends who had missed out on a set.
The situation now is this - there are two set left. One for sale, and one which is my own. There is a third set, the burnt set that is still available in return for, well... contact me if you need to know. That is all! There defiantly are no more complete sets as the printing blocks are destroyed and it would be the end of my sanity to make any more (I do not exaggerate).
Still, I am glad that these photographs have been posted, as this set (along with a second parallel set)represent the pinnacle of the Cuss Cards. Not in the cards themselves, they have always been hand crafted, printed, coloured and finished. However, the boxes have developed over time. Originally just a replacement to the cardboard boxes that the very first sets were sent out in - through to premade plywood boxes.
The final cuss card boxes are true works of art. They are built from solid oak by a master craftsman. And worked to look authentic enough to convince a medieval historian (trust me, I have tested!). There are also, other techniques that I keep close to my chest, that others would find very difficult to reproduce.
So, if we are talking exclusivity,and you have a Cuss Cards set - each one of you have a set that is totally unique - each card is hand painted, each boxes is hand aged with an unique image.
So farewell to the Cuss Cards, but not necessarily to the boxes that contain them.
Making individualised boxes is pretty much how I feed my family these days - not many will realise this, as I do not keep pushing them on the forums. People know where to come should they want them.
