Like the vast expanse of the sea, there are many unknown dangers hidden in that deep blue, such as sharks and pirates. Among the pirates, the most feared of all was the legendary Blackbeard. Blackbeard, formerly known as Edward Teach/Edward Thatch, is one of the most famous pirates in the world's history of navigation. And the inspiration for this deck of cards is derived from this.

Black skulls, salt-flavored jewelry, pirates, all have become a form of culture deeply embedded into our consciousness. Pirates are seen in many fields, but there are always some pirate legends who are eternally remembered by people, just like Blackbeard. Whether it is the famous movie, Pirates of the Caribbean, or the comic book, "One Piece," there are characters with Blackbeard as the prototype. This is also the case with this deck of cards.

We put in a lot of work on designing this deck because we love the culture and idea of pirates. We hope you will sense the mystery of pirates in this deck. So, we chose a vintage dark yellow on the back of the playing cards. There are iconic flags, anchors, bow, and weapons as elements to let you sense the pirate's culture.

The front of the tuck is a landmark element for navigation - the anchor. The vicissitudes of brush strokes and broken ropes leave you with infinite imagination.

Is it a sign that the pirates are about to stop the boat for looting? Or are they sailing after success? Is it about to start, or has never stopped? Or is it evidence that has been discovered from the bottom of the deep sea thousands of years later?

The Blackbeard has a design with pirate elements. These include the rudder in the center, the compasses on both sides, the iconic goggles, the iron chains in the mouth, the blue color, and the detailed ripples. All of these make you think immediately about pirates. The feelings you get from this deck will take you to mystery and terror.

The "pirate's vengeance" on the back of the cards tells a story about Blackbeard: in May 1718, he led four pirate ships to seal off the South Carolina capital of Charleston, looted ships in the port and kidnapped many hostages. It also included many members of the municipal government and, as a result, the government had to pay a huge ransom.

In the end he not only had to grab a lot of cargo, but also ransomed enough money to enjoy for a lifetime. So, he was greedy and eager to swallow the property. He set a trap and left his men dying on an island, but he left with 40 confidants. Two days later, these abandoned pirates were rescued by the occasionally passing English Major Bennett.

Blackbeard, who was unsympathetic to his acquaintances, also angered all pirates who had come back alive at the time. They contacted many merchants who had been harmed by Blackbeard, and the plantation owners together found the Governor of Virginia, Stephens, determined to kill the "black moustache" at all costs and determined to revenge him. In the end, there was the famous Black Bearded Commandment.

Joker

The fierce skull with pirate hat on the Joker card is the legend of Blackbeard. The handgun and rudder around him are the marks of his life.

Court Cards Design

The court cards are based on the theme of the whole deck of cards: Pirate's revenge, and it portrays twelve completely different pirate images. They are brothers who were ruthlessly abandoned by the black beard. Although they have turned into a skull, the vengeance is fierce and fierce. The action is vivid, and the gloomy picture gives you a cold feeling.
