"It's about injecting new blood into the original Empire deck, and Lee explains the thinking behind this sequel as follows: "I've spent the best part of the last year designing a brand new edition that embodies the very same epic values, obsessive detail and powerfully dramatic story telling design of its predecessor. However, the Bloodlines take the bold graphic style that the Empire series has become known for, and pushes it even further. They each stand strong with a unique style of their very own. Inspired by the beautiful, ornate and elegant stone engravings that emerged during the rule of one oft the most powerful Empires in history. These were times when legendary wars for world domination took place, courage was celebrated and honour was earned on the battlefield." -Ender's Game Review, Reviewer
Greatness runs within.
Inspired by a legendary age, where great honor and victory were won on the battlefield. In Emerald Green, the Bloodlines is the latest iconic deck in the Empire Series from Kings & Crooks. Designed by Lee McKenzie, it's a fearless deck that kicks dirt in the face of the playing card norm. It's also the daring successor to our treasured, ultra-rare and highly coveted Empire Playing Cards.
No detail is left untouched. From the epic and ornate engraved-style backs and striking custom-illustrated court cards, to the elegant, completely re-imagined pip design and iconic Ace of Spades. A courageous, custom-illustrated deck with powerful story-telling design guarded edge-to-edge by its pioneering signature Empire band.
Shielded in a velvet-soft, pure white case and adorned with a bold, precision-embossed wrap around design, the box itself is a beauty to behold. Crowned with glistening silver foil accents and a custom closure seal, the Empire Bloodlines is made for those who know that greatness is achieved by choice, not chance.
