Hey gang,

Once again my pal Will Roya has got another awesome deck on Kickstarter - the colors and artwork are stunning!

Check it out! Smile

Parrot Bicycle Playing Cards - Standard & Extinct Edition
2 full color art decks featuring over 200 parrots from around the world. Available in standard and extinct editions. Limited edition!

Image


Introducing the remake of the original parrot deck! This deck is even more intense than the first deck - while the original featured 52 unique parrot species, this one showcases well over 200.
The deck is also in glorious full color, both front and back. Each card is richly illustrated with 1 or more parrots. In another improvement, the deck will also be printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

Nearly every genus from the Psittaciforme order is shown in the cards, which are organized by region. The Spades show parrots from South America, The Hearts show parrots from Australia. The Clubs feature parrots from Indonesia and the Pacific Islands, and finally, the Diamonds show parrots from Africa, mainland Asia, and the Philippines (there's a bit of overlap between the Clubs and Diamonds).

STANDARD EDITION...

The standard edition features over 200 parrots in all, ranging from the majestic Black Palm cockatoo and Hyacinth macaw, to the world's tiniest parrot, the Buff-faced Pygmy parrot.
Every card has a unique illustration, with 1 to 10 parrots on it, corresponding with the card number. The courts are illustrated in the classic style with mirrored faces.

FULFILLMENT...

By PlayingCardDecks.com with a safe delivery guarantee and emailed tracking.
International customers are responsible for any custom fees and taxes and will need to be very patient with delivery times as we are seeing some shipments take up to 4 months
.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES...

Artwork has been pre-approved by USPCC. Some small design elements may be subject to change based on backer feedback and printer recommendations. Besides being a super backer, I have successfully completed and delivered several of my own campaigns as well as helping & collaborating with other creators. I really enjoy the process of creating decks with the artists and working with backers to bring the decks to life. I am in a fortunate situation to be able to cover some of the costs of producing the decks but without the help of the Kickstarter community I would not be able to bring all of my projects to life. Creating these decks is a significant investment of time and money and I am grateful for any and all support. If there are delays or issues they will be communicated and dealt with in an open manner. As always, I appreciate any feedback. You are welcome to reach out to me directly at any time and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner. Back with confidence!

Sincerely, Will Roya
