SevenAnglo developements

Since the very beginning, the sevens of the Anglo Decks have been special, compared to other deck brands. The original idea was to get away from the one way feature of the traditional seven and have a card that look the same from either end.

When we redesigned the Anglo Poker decks with standard indices, our idea was to make the value of the card more visible. Ironically, we found that the best recognizeability was achieved if we made the pips smaller. With more white space around the pips, they would not mix together when viewed from a distance. We know that people do not recognize cards from the number in the corner or even by counting the pips, from a distance, but they recognize the pattern. When we tested different patterns we found what we think was the best relation between visability and design. However the sevens where not recognized, because the pattern differed from most other brands. So we have decided from now on to print all Anglo Poker Standard Index cards with a new, but more traditional pattern of the pips on all sevens.

The first deck with the new design is the Rainbow Deck. But when we do new batches of the Anglo Poker Edition09 they will also have the new pattern on the sevens.

Yesterday the Rainbow Decks were printed and I held the first one in my hand today.
They are awesome! smiley

52 cards with 52 different colours on their backs. Each card is unique. When you spread the cards in new deck order the spread looks like a rainbow! The jokers and extra joker actually depicts a rainbow.

The cards are the same as the others in the Anglo Poker Edition09. This is the first deck from the 2nd generation, with new but traditional patterns on the four sevens. Each card has its own back colour, slightly different from the cards on either side, but the pattern is the same. As far as I know this is the only deck in the world of this kind. Until today Rainbow Deck meant a deck of cards with all different backs, it was usually a very mixed selection of pictorial and patterned backs. With our newborn baby the word Rainbow Deck has a more literal meaning!

What can you do with it? First of all you can play poker with colour blind people and win every time. Sorry.... But of course you can do some very nice flourishes with this deck. You can use a few cards from this deck for beautiful colour changes in an ordinary deck. You can actually use a few of the cards as a long distance marked deck.

We are waiting for the tuck boxes, the new improved model, but hope to be able to start delivering Rainbow Decks by the end of next week.
