Norman, OK—Denexa Games is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of their bridge-size plastic playing cards.
Denexa 100% Plastic Playing Cards, the company’s flagship product, are known for their quality and durability. Playing cards made entirely out of plastic—as opposed to traditional plastic-coated paper—are waterproof, meaning that dirt can easily be washed off of them, and they are not damaged by drink spills. Denexa carefully chooses plastic stock that resists chipping and cracking, while still being flexible enough to shuffle. Inks are also selected for their ability to bond to the plastic without scratching off.
“We’ve made the most durable plastic playing cards in the market today,” says Scott Nazelrod, President and founder of Denexa Games. “But we want to take all of what makes our cards awesome and make that available in bridge size, too.”
Playing cards come in two standard sizes, poker-size and bridge-size. Both sizes are the same height, but bridge-size cards are about a quarter-inch narrower than poker-size cards. Nazelrod says that quarter inch can make a huge difference.
“While we already offer cards in poker size, some card players prefer bridge-size cards,” he explained. “Bridge-size cards are narrower, and work better than poker-size cards for games like Bridge and Hearts, where there’s a lot of cards to hold. Some players with smaller hands like bridge-size cards because they’re easier to shuffle and deal with. And some players just think bridge-size cards look better.”
Denexa also plans to produce two different versions of the deck’s face side. In addition to the standard card designs, the company is also producing a “jumbo index” version of their cards, which will feature larger print, allowing the cards to be seen better from far away and by those with low vision. On both versions, the face card artwork has been redrawn from scratch, increasing the cards’ eye appeal.
Denexa’s Kickstarter project was launched on November 3, 2015, and will end on December 3, with a goal of raising $4,000. If the project meets its funding goal, backers will receive a two-deck set of the cards for each $25 pledged. Each set sent to Kickstarter backers will feature packaging artwork exclusive to Kickstarter reward sets. After the rewards are sent out, the remaining cards produced will be sold on Denexa’s web site and in retail stores in central Oklahoma.
