Creating a deck based on a system that is mostly unknown outside of Germany and Austria and add animation? You could view it as a tricky move, but if you’ve already almost sold out your first print run and publishers want to mass market it (2016), maybe not so much. It seems like Kipper, Fin de Siecle, is another one of Ciro Marchetti’s successes – with most likely many following in his footsteps. So, should you try to get one and/or wait impatiently for the mass….
Ciro Marchetti has a new deck coming out at the end of October, so the ones who ordered can expect a deck around the beginning of November. He’s designed an oracle deck based on the German system of Kipper cards. Marchetti’s kept the main system and numbering but added a few cards. Also, the visual setting is in the Victorian age. The designer has done something remarkable though; if you hold your smartphone over a card you’ll get to see an animation.
