Peak Playing Cards beautifully illustrates each of Colorado's fifty-three 14ers, which are mountains rising at least 14,000 feet above sea level.
The Night Deck back features the summit of a mountain peeking through the clouds, surrounded by shining stars. Includes all fifty-three custom designed fronts that feature Colorado's 14ers. Both are symmetrical over the horizontal axis, so nobody will know how you hold the cards in your hand.
All fifty-two playing cards and one Joker have a custom illustration of the peak of the 14er, as well as its name and elevation. The cards are ordered according to elevation; the highest peaks are aces and the lowest twos and a joker. Each card uses clean lines and lots of white space to showcase the modern design of the peak.
- 53 Fourteeners = 52 playing cards + 1 Joker
- The other Joker is a custom design featuring Red Rocks
- One blank card included so you can draw a replacement, should you lose a card
The suits are also a completely custom designed. The font for the pips is modern, thin, and pairs well with the mountain design. The direction of the lines for the hearts/diamonds and clubs/spades lean opposite directions, making it easy to quickly distinguish between suits of the same color. The cards are beautiful to look at, but also easy to play with.
