Butterfly Playing Cards Black & Gold (Prototype)

Butterfly Playing Cards Black & Gold (Prototype)

$ 29.95 EUR


The Black and Gold edition features shiny gold foil on all of the court cards, the Ace of Spades, one of the two jokers and of course, the back design. All four aces have large custom centre pips in the theme of the floral back design. It contains a double-backer just as the other two Black Butterfly decks. The boxes features a subtle reveal that will not be reprinted in the Summer 2019 Crowdfunding edition. It has been tested on these prototypes and will be replaced with a different effect as it needs further development. All Butterfly Playing Cards Black prototypes have been printed by Cartamundi with the True Linen B9 finish.

Only 500 gold foiled prototypes exist. 250 were gilded to test compatibility of gilded edges with the magic features of the deck, and 250 were left non-gilded to compare advantages of both versions. The gilded decks proved functional and have been used to promote a Kickstarter campaign that launched on July 2nd, 2019. 200 of the non-gilded Black and Gold prototype decks were available for sale in April 2019 for only 24 hours and will never be reprinted.

All prototypes are marked on the backs and come with no instructions.
