Demons Descend

ORDER YOUR COPY OF ONI PLAYING CARDS TODAY! Hello everyone! Hope you all have been enjoying the week so far. I had quite the comical ride getting ahold of these, as there was an internal issue at USPCC and they didn’t send the “shipped” notification. After calling the freight company with the shipment number, the rep told me, “Well, they should be at your house… right now.” The FedEx driver was upset that I interrupted his nap (ha!), but we got the boxes where they needed to be. On to the cards. They look amazing, and the edges are rough […]

Art Unleashed — 2016

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

Every year for seven years now, University of the Arts has held their Arts Unleashed gala event to promote established and upcoming artists. Proceeds from the event go toward replenishing the Sam S. McKeel Promising Young Artists Scholarship Fund, which assists students in affording tuition. I had the privilege, once again, of showing artwork alongside many other talented artists and friends. The Illustration department was in full force, and both alumni and faculty (notably department chair Mark Tocchet, professor Matt Curtius, and professor Patch) hung work. Big shout-out to my fellow Illustration alumni — Miguel Co, Kaitlin O’Donnell, James Matusheski, Kayla Miller, and Heather Vaughan. […]

Fifth-Time’s the Charm

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Tuck N Roll - Gaming News

Try, try again. A month ago, Oni Playing Cards successfully raised $5,251 thanks to 189 backers on Kickstarter. Folks who have been following the Devilish Rogue Project (DRP) over the past few years know that we have launched and re-launched the Wiretap (WT) deck line, falling short of the goal four times. So what happened this fifth time? Let’s analyze what was done differently. Subject Matter / Target Audience This was the make-or-break. We had a strong idea of where our audience was, how to reach them, and what platforms they preferred. The WT campaign was geared towards a niche audience. […]

With less than two days to go, Oni Playing Cards now reveals its only stretch goal: the Oni Playing Cards “Life or Death” poker chip. If we are able to hit $5,500 by the end of the campaign, every pre-existing and new order will include one of these chips. All other chips from the production run will be destroyed afterwards, as this will be a Kickstarter campaign exclusive. Get yours today at the Oni Playing Cards campaign! See you around. – Dave

Westeros Reforged

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

Speaking of Game of Thrones . . . Leaves rustle as the breath of fall washes over them, sending them skittering across the pathway into the grass. Seated on a painted bench, I rhythmically tap my foot against the cold concrete and stare off into space twenty feet away. Gentle humming comes from the electrical wires above the train tracks, signaling the approach of my ride back into the city. As the train pulls up and the doors slide open, a thought strikes me. It has been nearly a year and a half since I touched our homemade Game of Thrones Risk […]

What is Dead…

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

Last Friday, November 6th 2015, the “The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors” show had its opening at Milk and Honey in Philadelphia. Among the pieces displayed were cartoon versions of the Brotherhood Without Banners, tarot cards of Game of Thrones characters, and Jon Snow prayer candles. Props to Kate Egan for the decorations/murals, hanging the show, and providing food and drink. The night was less dark and devoid of terror thanks to the efforts. Shout out to all the fellow artists that participated in the show, namely: Heather Vaughan, Miguel Co, Alex Dos Diaz, Nicole DiPonziano, Bob Stokes, Nancy Hill, Caitlin […]
