Learn About Our Project:

 

My name is Jody Eklund and I'm pleased to introduce you to TITANS, The Robber Baron Edition.  Titans are defined as "one that is gigantic in size or power: one that stands out for greatness of achievement." The men in this deck of cards were referred to as "Titans of Industry".  For over three decades, the rise of new industries and technologies revolutionized the entire world. This made many men very wealthy and with their great achievements, came ruthless behavior an abuse of power. The capitalists of the late 19th century became know as "Robber Barons" 

"Business leaders from about 1865 to 1900 were, on the whole, a set of ... rascals who habitually cheated and robbed investors and consumers, corrupted government, fought ruthlessly among themselves, and in general carried on predatory activities comparable to those of the robber barons of medieval Europe." ~ Hal Bridges

The kings and jacks depict those that build empires through ruthless means and the queens are women that spent their life's energy to liberate those oppressed in many ways. It's a story of juxtaposition; misuse of power and strength from weakness, oppression and liberation...  This is Titans, these are the Robber Barons.

Shipping

I have some GREAT news! Everyone will receive their rewards much sooner this time around. This is because I have switched my Kickstarter Fulfillment from the US to China where the decks are being produced. The only thing is, I need to add an $8 shipping charge for the STANDARD Reward tier ONLY. All other tiers will not charge for shipping because Worldwide Shipping is included in the price of the reward tier.

The reason for this is simple, I am shipping the rewards from China in April 2017 and not the U.S. which will allow me to keep the cost of shipping down and allow me to give better prices overall. International shipping has become almost astronomical when shipping from the U.S. I was able to get much better rates by shipping from overseas. 

Benefits

  • All backers will receive their rewards at least a month earlier
  • Shipping costs are down because I found an overseas shipping company
