An Imperial Deck of Playing Cards

Limited to 12,000 decks only and first made available on Kickstarter. This is no ordinary deck of cards but a first of its kind, manufactured by MPC. We broke down the elements that make a great deck of cards and re-engineered it in its entirety from card stock finishing to varnishing used. The card stock used has the perfect balance between the softness and stiffness needed to excel in performance. The new varnishing used in this deck has been in development over the past 2 years and the outcome is truly exceptional. The Chao was designed to closely follow that of a traditional deck of cards in terms of positioning including head facing direction, hand placements and the presence of weapons and artifacts but with a completely China theme.

The Dynasties of China

Over the lengthy span of Chinese history, each Chao (which is the pronounced word for dynasty in the Chinese language) is distinguished by the name and the impact of the individuals that ruled over that period of time. This very special and unique deck of cards pays tribute to four of the greatest and most recognized dynasties in Chinese history – Han, Tang, Ming and Qing. Each dynasty has an outstanding and reputable Emperor, Empress and General, each with their own notorious traits and fascinating stories. The Chao depict these influential men and women that were renowned and celebrated from each of the four famous dynasties.
