Talk about a WILD! deck of cards! Try these HIDDEN IMAGE playing cards on for size! They add a new dimension of fun to a deck of cards that are suitable for all card games. This WILD! "Hidden Image" deck of cards features 54 beautiful illustrations of Wild animals from all over the World. From polar bears and tigers, to snakes and whales. From the tiniest of insects to the larger Mammals, this deck will delight animal lovers of all ages and those that like their cards a little...WILD!
While the deck is called WILD! because it features 54 beautiful illustrations of Wild animals from all over the World, the part that makes even more fun is the fact that have created "hidden images" throughout the deck. For example, if you take the 8 of diamonds you will find 8 diamonds "hidden" on the card face. Or if you look at the 5 of spades you will see 5 spades "hidden" right on the card face! Can you find all of the hidden images?
But that's not all! While we have hidden the suit signs (hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades) or 'Pips' on each card face, we have has also placed tiny little snails (we call it 'Where's Woody') all through the deck - can you find them all?
This is a LIMITED EDITION deck from Newt's Games & Playing Cards and was the first ever custom deck of cards that we published. WILD!
ABOUT THIS TYPE OF 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?

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.
- Wide Format (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
What size of print (a.k.a. index) is printed on the playing cards. This is the actual numbers and pips (hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades). While most folks are used to the "normal", some like their numbers to be a little larger. Please remember that the normal and jumbo size print will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
We will do our best to sort through them and let you know our thoughts or what the manufacturer considers them.
In regards to the "Medium Sized Print". This is something that is unique to Newt's as we try to create decks of cards that have just a little bit larger print, but not to large to be annoying to those who do not like the jumbo print or index.
As always, be sure to check out the actual description of this item to get a clearer descritpion. Should you have any questions please give us a call.
