I keep a running list of the most funded playing card decks of all time on Kickstarter. The project for Azure Dragon & Time Machine Playing Cards has already shot up into the #10 spot on this list, which is a phenomenal achievement. And it still has almost three weeks of funding remaining. Here's a complete list of all the projects that have raised more than $250,000.

1. $2,143,826 - Vivid Kingdoms by Ten Hundred (2021)
2. $630,300 - The Name of the Wind Art Deck by Elodin Enterprises (2017)
3. $589,660 - The Name of the Wind by Albino Dragon (2013)
4. $564,558 - MINT 2 by 52Kards (2018)
5. $477,229 - Jerry's Nugget by Expert Playing Card Company (2019)
6. $393,000 - The Eye of the Ocean by Stockholm17 (2021)
7. $364,000 - The Photography Deck by Travel9to5 (2020)
8. $321,052 - Anubis & Osiris Shadow by Steve Minty (2021)
9. $287,813 - The NOC Luxury Collection (Gold, Silver, Bronze) by Riffle Shuffle x House of Playing Cards (2020)
10. $272,810 - Azure Dragon & Time Machine Playing Cards by ARK Playing Cards (2021)
11. $271,484 - The NOC Luxury Collection (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald) by Riffle Shuffle x House of Playing Cards (2021)
12. $265,200 - Arrow & Shield Playing Cards by Card Mafia (2020)
13. $250,887 - Kingdom & Kinghood by Artisan Playing Cards (2021)

The reason for the success isn't surprising. This project was created by Danny (ARK Playing Cards, Artisan Playing Cards), who specializes in extremely lavish packaging. Each of his first three projects was been more successful than the previous one (Card College Playing Cards, Tempo Playing Cards, and Kingdom & Kinghood Playing Cards) and his fourth project (ARK Light Playing Cards) was also a success.

Now with the Azure Dragon & Time Machine collector's box sets he has stretched the boundaries even further, with some truly "next-level" tuck boxes and packaging.

AZURE DRAGON

This deck takes its title from one of the four divine beasts found in Chinese Mythology.

The innovation here is a stunning tuck box which incorporates the art of paper carving, effectively turning it into a mini art sculpture using intricate card cutting.

This deck is only available as part of one of three boxed sets: a Classic Collector's Box Set (1000 only), a Black Gold Box Set (500 only), or a Walnut Boxed Set (300 only).

TIME MACHINE

This deck is full of baroque-style artwork and steampunk elements, and features time-related images like a clock, hourglass, cogs, and compass throughout.

The tuck box is packaged inside a remarkable display box which has a unique turn-table style folding mechanism [animated gif]. But that's not all, because the tuck box you find inside also features an ingenious design, with a self-flipping multi-page mechanism [animated gif]. Meanwhile the back design incorporates a flip-book animation feature [animated gif], and the cards also employ extensive use of foils [animated gif]. In other words: tons of features.

This is also available only as part of three boxed sets: a Classic Collector's Box Set (1000 only), a Dark Flare Box Set (500 only), or a Walnut Box Set (300 only).
