About Our Cards

The Time for a New Game is Now!

Ever wonder why women are underrepresented in a deck of cards?  Why the King has a Queen, but the Jack has no peer?  We did.  So, we dug into the history of playing cards to find a female equivalent to Jack. No luck.  Introducing Dawn, the new female face card, and the logical complement to Jack.  We challenge you to play your game of choice with the complete deck.  How does it change the way you play?

p.s. If you want to maintain a 13-card suit, take out the Jack for a change! 

p.s.s  The Full Deck, by FullDeck Cards LLC, contains 56 cards plus 2 Jokers.  We added a fourth royal, DAWN, to the traditional 52 card deck.   

p.s.s.s. Our cards are printed on casino quality paper with a linen finish, for long lasting play.  Made in the USA.
