KOI Playing Cards
"Version 2 is a more luxurious version of the original deck, while retaining its artwork style on the cards . The more classy look begins with a very simple white tuck box, adorned only with the word Koi in a raised and gold font. The design on the card-backs is clearly inherited from the first version of the deck, but instead of a white design on a red background we now have a metallic gold design on a white background, for a much more sophisticated look."

celebrates the Koi fish -- a symbol of luck, prosperity, and good fortune in Japan.
The beautiful, eye-catching back design poses two Koi fish in a circular, swimming motion with metallic gold as they glitter against the stark white background. The smooth, even feel of the cards are inspired by the scales of these majestic fish.
In Japanese, koi
is a homophone for another word that means "affection" or "love", so koi are also symbols of love and friendship in Japan.
Includes 2 custom Koi Jokers and 2 gaffed cards.
