Game On: Cyberpunk Playing Cards
“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.
Cyberpunk Playing Cards was created by Elephant Playing Cards which was founded by Ben Jones. They are a small team of designers who are passionate about bringing new and creative playing cards to collectors and players alike. Other cards that the company has created are “Prism Night”, which had incorporated gloss ink onto the cards and tactile layered gloss ink on to the tuck box. The second project that their team released was “Pipmen” which took the creative impulse further with a playfully creative set of unique cards. The aim of Elephant Playing cards is to have designs that are functional and interesting. And their campaign definitely sparked interest.
As a new company Elephant Playing Cards reached out Kickstarter to release their Cyberpunk Playing Cards new cards. The campaign was released on February 9th and was funded in under 12 hours by a landslide of supporters that were very excited about their new project. People were reaching out to EPC saying that they were excited to use the new cards for magic tricks. In little under a week they had made incredible progress and broke the 30k mark. They were able to finish out their goal at 300% and were able to raise over $37,000 from their Kickstarter Campaign.
