Spotted on Kickstarter: Plugged Nickel Playing Cards

Plugged Nickel Playing Cards Kickstarter ProjectWe ran across the Plugged Nicked Playing Cards Kickstarter. It’s not affiliated with Pinnacle or any of the licensees, but it just screams Deadlands with its tag line—”Playing cards based on the Old West. And dead people. But mostly the Old West.”

Oh, sure, you could probably use these cards for virtually any Old West game if you wanted. But you know you’re thinking Deadlands, too. And don’t be a slowpoke—the Plugged Nicked Playing Cards Kickstarter ends this Friday!

While you’re out there (and only if your wallet can take it), you might want to poke around for other great themed decks for your various Savage Worlds games.
