A RevK GiveAway

[Update: We have given away hundreds of packs of cards, so I have stopped for now. Thanks for the interest - I am amazed how many requests in just two days]
[Update: Now available to buy on Amazon]

Having spent so much time on these playing cards (drawing the court cards and making code, etc), I decided to have some actual decks printed - a Reproduction 19th Century Goodall & Son deck, printed on modern playing card board. Ivory Graphics have done a good job...

The lack of index in the corner means they are fine for games with cards on the table, but not really that good for when you have a hand of cards. The original deck was 32 cards (no 2 to 6) but these are a full 52 card deck.

They are something unusual to impress your friends and family, and I have decided to give away some to my blog readers.

Just follow this link to request a pack: www.me.uk/cards/ordercard.cgi
(name/address just used for the postage, honest)

Obviously subject to availability, but do have fun and comment here or tweet...
[And yes, I am personally paying for these decks and postage which A&A is handling for me]


The card designs are here...

  1. A 32 card deck would be useless on it's own, but have 2 and you can play Bezique!

    1. To be fair, whilst A&A are doing the A&A (and FB) decks, I'm paying for these reproduction Goodall&Son decks and postage myself as they are promoting my blog.

  5. I've just tried getting the 'AA' cards but keep getting 'Failed - sorry, please check details or contact sales directly.'. Is the offer only on the Goodall cards or is there a problem with a newish (3 year old) postcode not being recognised (fomat NGnn nXX)

    1. May be worth trying again, I see a few errors in a row from Royal Mail: No Response Received from Business Fulfilment System Web Service (Service is Unavailable or Timeout)

  9. Here's a fun game to play with your cards. I played it last year at a friend's house with her kids, they loved it.
