Märchen Playing Cards
The world of German folklore comes alive in these deluxe playing card decks.
YOu can bring the mysterious world of German legends to live with these beautifully designed magical playing cards. The decks celebrate the Germanic culture from the Brothers Grimm to the cuckoo clock, with elegant designs that will make them a treasure worthy of your gaming table or collection.
The decks are available in two limited editions: a green tuck box representing the enchanted forest of the Schwarzwald, and a cream tuck box standing for the medieval town of Hamelin. The faces of the cards are created in metallic gold inks, protected by a matte finish.
German culture has always celebrated its Märchen (fairy tales)—peasant stories of clever children and evil kings, mysterious maidens and vengeful monsters.
Forge Arts in collaboration with artist Nicolai Aaroe have breathed new life into these ancient legends, bringing to live the heroes and beasts from German myth in gleaming metallic inks.
Whether you choose the guise of safety within the town in the Hamelin (cream) deck or the wilderness of the Schwarzwald (green) deck, a world of magic, intrigue, and wonder awaits.
