Review link:

Designed in the United Kingdom by Joe White, Contraband Playing Cards were inspired by secret societies, conspiracy theories, and everything unknown.

The tuck case, and the cards within, are all made in the USA on FSC-certified, ECF paper. Secret imagery is hidden within the design: the lines of the inner flap construct (literally!) a face of mystery.

Every single playing card within the Contraband deck was designed from scratch - even the Aces, Jokers, and court cards display attention to detail never before achieved. Over a year in the making - and every minute of it is visible in the final design.

These cards became an instant favorite of mine- I've used them constantly for the past week and they are starting to stick a little bit, but that's to be expected as much as I used them. I'm a sucker for embossing and gold foil, and I'll be ***ed if these cards didn't sell me the second I saw them. Great example of a great box design released by theory11, inside and out (literally) contrasting the usually low quality boxes that I get from Ellusionist decks. Anybody else share that experience or is it just me...

I bought a few packs for a friend's bday.
box is cool.
aces looked good.
faded pips and such look like crap. worst idea I've seen in a long time.
extra cards are a nice touch.
they faro right out of the box nicely.

if it wasn't for the faded faces/pips I'd give it a thumbs up. Hand Crafted Magic
