REGAL PURPLE

The Epitome of Luxury and Extravagance

Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic all of which were the foundations the Regal deck is based off of.



REGAL BLUE

A Reflection of the Sea and Sky

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven its close association with royalty and the royal family, blue blood and such was an easy and obvious choice to make when selecting for our Regal deck palette.



REGAL GREEN

Power in the Form of a Deck

Green is the first color Powell began to design the deck with, it immediately had a tie in mind with the Regal family. Green is commonly associated with money and wealth. Money = Power. Power over everything has always been a hallmark of nearly every Regal monarchy known to man.



REGAL RED

The Heart of Regal Playing Cards

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags. It's richness and connections to romance love and rage that were in every Regal house throughout the ages.



Available in Purple, Blue, Green and Red

SUMMARY: A luxurious playing card look fitting for royalty!

The Regal decks were designed by John Powell, and produced by Gamblers Warehouse in four different colours: green, blue, purple, and red.

The "regal" title of these decks alludes to royalty, and reflects the fact that with these classy looking decks, designer John Powell tried to offer a fresh take on classical styled playing cards. In his own words: "I was really influenced by the classic standard English courts, but I wanted to do them in a cleaner, more sophisticated and regal appearance - hence the name."

All four decks have a similar look and style, the only difference being that the Hearts and Diamonds pips and indices are featured in the deck's colour (green, blue, purple, or red), and this colour is also the main colour used on the court cards besides black/gold.

The card-backs feature beautiful, ornate, and detailed artwork, and appropriately gold is a key colour, both on the card-backs, and also on the court cards. These court cards have a classic style, but using the deck's colour as a central colour gives the cards a unified look that immediately distinguishes them from a standard deck. I especially love how the court cards have over-sized artwork that exudes elegance and class.

The Regal deck is a beautiful and classy looking deck all round, whichever of the four colours you choose. Since purple is the colour of royalty, the purple deck conveys wealth, luxury, and extravagance more than any other colour. The Blue deck features the same back design, but with a touch of blue instead of purple, and this blue colour really complements the gold used throughout the deck. With green pips and indices, the Green deck has a whole different look, but is equally beautiful. The Red deck is perhaps my favourite, because it uses red pips for the red suits, so it is the closest to a traditional deck, but all four colours look terrific.

The quality and handling of the cards is also very high. The Regal decks were printed by Expert Playing Card Company in their Master finish, which is a thinner but more durable card-stock with a cleaner cut and more snap than a typical USPCC produced deck.

Because of the design of the card backs, these decks are also beautifully suited to cardistry. The tuck boxes also look absolutely great! Inside and out, it's hard to imagine how these stunning decks could have been improved!
