If you are looking for a unique deck of cards then this is it! It is a Limited Edition deck called, "The Chamber of 52 Cards". The deck is based on the Music of the rock group, "GENESIS". With the 55 cards (52 normal and 3 jokers) you get awesome illustrations that are based on the music, the fans and the world of the progressive rock band, "GENESIS". The fun part is that the artist actually hid all the hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades (a.k.a. The Pips). Can you find the pips and other hidden features in the deck?
The artwork is by UK Playing Card Artist, Peter Wood.
This is a standard, poker sized (2-1/2 x 3-1/2) deck of cards that is suitable for all card games.
Limited Edition means there were only 500 decks printed worldwide!

About Semi-Transformational Art
This type of art isn't really new as it has been around since the late 1800s. We just love this type of art so much that we continue to create more decks with it. In the "old days" this type of art was called "semi-transformational" but we call it "hidden images". "Semi-transformation" just means that the suit signs or "pips" are hidden in the picture...which is exactly what these decks do. They are 'transformed' in a subtle and fun way just like they did in the late 1800s.
Are you good enough to find all of the hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades?
PLEASE NOTE: Genesis name and songs are copyright Genesis & Virgin/EMI Records. This deck of cards is meant to be a tribute to Genesis and their work from a die hard fan...Peter Wood.
Playing Card Features
In the US the standard names for the size of decks would be "Bridge" or "Poker". Both of these decks can be used for most card games. The only real difference would be that the "Bridge" size decks are 1/4" narrower than "Poker". Otherwise they can be used for pretty much anything. Please read the description of this item for more information.
- Poker Size (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
This has to do with the actual size of a deck of cards, not really whether or not tradional games can be played with it or not. While here in the US we call most decks either "Poker" or "Bridge" size, most of the rest of the world would call them either "Wide" or "Narrow", respectivily.
Many times the "narrow" decks were intended for ladies or children because it was easier for them to handle. While the "narrow" are considered the standards size in most of the world, here in the US the "wide" are considered the standard size.
Please check actual description of the product to see if normal card games can be played with this particular product.
