It’s been quite a while since we featured a deck of cards here on the pages of The Coolector and given our proclivity for all things sci-fi, it stands to reason that the ones that force their way into our purview are these excellent Lunar Saloon StarDeck Playing Cards which will unquestionably be to the liking of anyone with science fiction leanings.
Lunar Saloon is a Minneapolis-based creative studio of Alex and Meg Griendling and they work alongside a number of different of different creative talents across multiple fields to create awesome looking wares like these StarDeck Playing Cards. Striking, well-crafted and dripping in sci-fi goodness, they’re a real triple threat as far as we’re concerned here at Coolector HQ.
To the Moon and Back
Each of the four suits with these gloriously illustrated Lunar Saloon StarDeck Playing Cards is an iconic sci-fi trope: namely, Space Marines, Robots, Aliens, and, last but not least, a dastardly Mega Corporation. These first rate playing cards are printed by the United States Playing Card Company on high-grade Bicycle paper so there will be a real tangible quality to the touch and they will ensure you’re playing poker, blackjack and whist well into the future.
The illustrations on these StarDeck Lunar Saloon Playing Cards are bold, vibrant and instantly recognisable albeit not representations of classic characters like Luke Skywalker or Ripley from Aliens. If you like your sci-fi and find yourself on the hunt for a new set of playing cards in 2017, these would certainly be our pick here at The Coolector.
Clever design features abound with these excellent looking playing cards from Lunar Saloon and they have reimagined each card, from bespoke illustrations on the face cards and joker cards to understated tweaks of the suit symbols and numbers to deliver the sort of aesthetically eye-catching playing cards that we’re such big fans of here at Coolector HQ.
Stars in our Eyes
Whilst Lunar Saloon are a design studio that we’ve not encountered before here at Coolector HQ, they’ve planted themselves firmly on our radar with these cracking StarDeck Playing Cards. Overflowing with visually impact science fiction inspired designs and made from first rate materials, it’s easy to see why these playing cards came to fruition off the back of a highly successful Kickstarter campaign.
We love science fiction wares – be they big or small – here at Coolector HQ and these brilliant StarDeck Playing Cards from Lunar Saloon are exactly the sort of thing we gravitate towards because not only are they exceptionally eye-catching, they are also impeccably well made from the finest materials.
