The subtlest and most complex piece on the chessboard, the knight has fascinated players with its leaps and sidesteps since the game was first created. Now designers Daniel Madison and Chris Ramsay and artist Oban Jones have sought to capture the piece’s essence in this exquisite deck printed by the United States Playing Card Company.
The cards are printed with metallic gold ink, bringing Jones’ work to elegant life. The custom joker commemorates the drama of a checkmate, a crow already moving in on the king’s fallen “body.” The tuck box is a classic matte with white gold foil.
A must-have for chess lovers and card lovers alike!
A few surprises lie within the simplistic and classic matte white and gold foil tuck. These hidden features embody the aesthetics and practicality which appeal to magicians, gamblers and chess players alike.
Look a little bit close and you'll see a FULL, updated value and suit marking system for the first time ever on classic knights.
