War of Currents

Product Description

From the Kickstarter:

"It started with one question:  Why doesn't everyone know who Nikola Tesla is?  

The 'War of Currents' shaped our everyday way of life.  From the light bulbs in your home to the wireless internet at the local cafe.  History books in schools are riddled with Thomas Edison's greatest moments, so where is Nikola Tesla?  Why don't more people know about the 'War of Currents'?

The Idea:

We have always thought the best way to learn something is through entertainment.  From there, it evolved into playing cards.  We thought everyone from all walks of life and passions can enjoy a good card game... why not put a history lesson in a deck of cards?  Well, that's what we did!

The Look:

Our goal was to design a deck of cards that provided a feel of nostalgia, similar to the cards from the late 1800's/Early 1900's.  We wanted to tell the story of the 'War of Currents' with our concepts.

...

During our design phase we looked at a lot of early Bicycle playing cards, photographs, newspapers, patent images, and souvenir cards from The World's Fair of 1893.  We really tried to incorporate as much REAL history and media into the deck.  Even our number cards are modeled after the original Tesla/Edison patent images."
