If it’s your preference to tone down the fantasy element of House of Cards, one good way to do that is by selecting a deck of cards whose illustrations fit the tone you want – after all, the card faces are the majority of the visual art you’re going to see during a game session!

EDIT: A couple of technical issues to make note of: first, the pre-order options aren’t consistently showing up on the Parenthesis Press page – some customers have mentioned they only see the digital copies and not the hardcover/softcover bundles. (EDIT 2: This seems to be fixed now!) They do show up at the bottom of the front page on Indie Press Revolution, though, under New Products. Also, I’m looking into whether other shipping options are available beyond UPS, because it can be a bit pricey, I know. Steady on!

A laminator breakdown held things up at the printers, but now physical copies of House of Cards are rolling off the presses, and to celebrate, I’m offering a $5 off sale through the Parenthesis Press page at IPR. You will also always get a digital version to download when you buy a paper copy. This only lasts a couple of weeks (from now until the boxes hit the warehouse), so snag yourself a deal!
