Hi Phill,

Is there any way folks could see more of the possibilities with this deck before launch? This definitely has my interest, but I cannot put my finger on whether I would use this, and in what circumstances.

I think I'm going to do a live on Instagram over the next few days so I can run through some of the possibilities. @phillsmiff1 is the name, it should give me the chance to explain a lot of what the deck can do. But, and this is important, we have only really scratched the surface so far as to what you will be able to use it for.

OK we just smashed through 100% which is IMMENSE, and which means that the project WILL go to print! We're very excited, thanks so much to everyone who has pledged to support the project!

Sup gang!
I'd like to thank everybody for your support of the Identity Deck so far. This is the first project John and I have launched into the community, and to receive so much positive feedback really means a lot to us.
Also, special thanks to Mick Wilson for these kind words:
"I can’t think of a better way to build your confidence as a reader than to use a tool that, not only looks like it belongs, but also has all the hard work done for you, thanks to Luke, John and Phill.
I have only recently added the deck to my Cold Reading lecture as I think it’s one of the best teaching aids available. Not only that, you’re gonna get a shed load of routines that the creators have supplied with the deck, so it’s ready made for magic, mental magic, mentalism and readings. Could one possibly ask for more, NO, not really."

To me, (and many others), Mr Wilson is to readings what Mr Kipling is to cakes, so to hear him talk about the project so enthusiastically was especially encouraging.

A good question I've heard couple of times is "What would I actually do with it tho?"
In the real world, I use the Identity Deck to make card tricks feel like more than 'card tricks', as well as a framework to give readings with a built-in failsafe (often using these ideas in tandem). So any time a spectator picks a card, it can now represent their own personality or their star sign, a friend, a word, an image, and so it has more meaning and significance to them than just being a playing card. To a spectator, Ambitious card routines and triumphs can become friend summoning rituals tailored to them, card locations can be about couples finding each other, Acaan's can become their star sign dealt at their birthday, you get the idea.

Since the kickstarter launched, I've been shown some creative new ways of using the deck we hadn't considered, and it excites me to think what people will come up with in the near future - this deck has already exceeded my expectations and now I'm thinking we've barely scratched the surface.
Many thanks again for all the love for the project, have a great day peeps✌💚

- Luke

There are new stretch goals. Share, share, share! Let's spread the word and hit them for some awesome add-ons.

Nathan's rallying cry seems to have worked, we just hit our first stretch goal and I will be adding options to add the plastic pub-proof deck and the collectors uncut sheets from USPCC to the page later on today. Thanks again to everyone who has got involved!

What happened to the Identity Deck project? Is it on hold?

They sent out a note about things being delayed about a week back

Looks like the printers have it held up still for maybe another 8 weeks due to Covid back log.
Understandable and nothing they can control.

Yep, totally out of Phill's hands and no worries on my end or that of others I'm sure. All good. Smile

Individual decks are no longer an option?
It's all in the reflexes.
