Kickstarter start date: May 8, 2020

Context:

From scrolling through Kickstarter, I saw that MPC (a company that I’ll later ask to produce the cards for my own upcoming card games such as F0X Trumps and Studio RGB-Newt’s Shipment) had a campaign for a see-through set of waterproof playing cards, and I figured I could grab a deck.

Result:

The cards arrived in the latter half of 2020, and they look like this!
