  • Charm gets you quite far. Guile gets you the rest.
Are there multiple versions of the Sharps decks? I see them named 'Sharps' and also see 'Private Reserve' used for the Sharps decks as well, are these all the same deck, or have there been different versions between pre-releases and other available decks of Sharps?

I'm pretty sure the full title is "Sharps Private Reserve".

Oh ok, so there is just one Sharps deck, the Sharps Private Reserve? I wasn't sure if they had made different print runs with different sub names
Kickstarter completely revolutionized the way I waste money.

Per the email, these are the same original decks printed 1 year ago. There was only one print run of each color.

Now that I finally was able to buy Sharps... How do I get my hands on a few Purple v2 Legends?

You don't.  It's a black deck in just the right light to make it appear purple.  We've seen such photos before.

The box art says "Sharps Playing Cards", I'd guess the "Private Reserve" part is just to be clear that they are not meant to be sold publicly.

I agree. When you consider quantity sold, time frame it took LPCC to sell them and the select customers that were offered to buy them, the name "private reserve"  is appropriate for this deck more then any deck I've seen to date.

The LPCC releases till date have been exceptional, to say the very least.

Seeing as Black Friday and Cyber Monday are pretty much the time of the year where the playing card companies tend to launch either new decks or some sort of weekend sale, I just wanted to ask whether LPCC has anything planned.

The (supposed) "big boys" (Ellusionist, Theory11, D&D) don't have anything that interests me in the slightest. It's only CARC that has some exciting releases. If LPCC has anything planned, then I'll try eBay off some more more USPCC decks before Friday in order to raise more funds :D

The answer to my question above is YES, there will be a black Friday sale at the LPCC site.

If you check www.legendsplayingcards.com you'll find the following text:

"Get ready for our Black Friday super sale on NOV 27th, 23:00 GMT"

I'm very much looking forward to it! In all honesty, I think my entire card budget is going to be spent on this one -- I'll pick up EPCC's Zen decks some other time.

Looks like a Chinese role playing card game (difference between 3 & 4 Kingdoms?). Interested to see more and the potential artwork associated with such a game.

Yea, I think there could be a copyright/ trademark issue there. No it doesn't say Bicycle, but one could be confused thinking it's a "Bicycle" brand or something.

Yes, but that's USPC allowing it.  Not an outside company.

Were any of you confused as to whether this was a deck of Bicycle branded cards?

Probably not. The big letters that say "LEGENDS" gave it aways, huh?

Maybe you thought that this might be another company's deck that USPCC printed, but so what?

One design element that is roughly the same is likely not infringing USPCC rights.

You're right.  But in trademark law, if a company "waters down" its own trademark by allowing alterations, it weakens the protection the trademark would receive in a court case over infringement by similar-looking products.  It never helps when the trademark consists mostly of lettering - no one has a trademark on the alphabet.  Hence the reason McDonald's refers to their logo as "the Golden Arches" rather than "the letter M."  Shapes are one thing, letters quite another.

I don't see what the issue is. Legends have been using that same lettering and placement ever since they released their first Legends branded deck.

So far there have been 3 Legends branded releases... and no such issues.

The first additions have similarities, but the letter frame is different, and the scroll ends are not even close.

This one the letter frame and scroll is almost exact to Bicycle.  We all know the difference between Bicycle and Legends. For someone that doesn't, there could easily be some brand confusion. I think USPCC could easily have a case against this. On the other hand, If I'm Legends, and I'm trying to make my own brand. Why would they go with anything close to the Bicycle logo?

I'm guessing that this "Day of the Dead" deck is a custom order for an independent designer, and not one of the LPCC in-house decks.

In which case, I'd also guess that the independent designer was the one who chose for that particular look with regard to the Legends branding.
