Hello all,

The Seasons decks were originally going to be sold/funded through Kickstarter, but as some of you are aware... this is not the case anymore.

I've been informed that a deal has been struck with fullboatdealer and AceKing to be EXCLUSIVE distributors of the Seasons decks.

More info soon.

I heard this is the first and last deck from Alex Chin, which is unfortunate.

I am honestly not a fan of the fact that he teamed up with resellers. His pricing was going to include free shipping when he was going at it solo. I doubt AceKing or FBD would go with that model.

I'm picking up a set of them from Alex himself if he ends up selling the cards on his personal site - they are pretty cool and supporting a fellow artist is a must.

I have since gotten over this, but....I am with Alex. I was way excited about the Kickstarter on this one and he pulled it like 3 days from launch (don't quote me on exact date). I felt like I had just gotten screwed out of the chance to pay what they are worth and without shipping. These guys are resellers, come on now. I'm a reseller, I know how this works lol. I still feel like we have gotten the short end of the stick, but like I said, it is what it is.

Oh for sure, Ev. I still want to get a couple sets, I am just a little bitter that I will now be forced to be gouged in order to get some. I also like KS for first projects because it makes me feel like I actually helped the deck in some fashion. Getting stuck having to go external to buy a deck doesn't leave me feeling anything but, "There goes another $40 I could have spent in gas or food" lol

This deck design is pretty enough that for me, I don't care where or how they decide to sell it. I just want a set, at any halfway reasonable cost really. Sure hope they become available soon!

I'll definitely buy it.
But I remember they announced that they won't use kickstarter, but ebay to sell it.

Indeed, Phantom. That fact was covered in the original post, thus striking the rest of the posts to follow and people voicing how they are a little let down by the kickstarter not happening. It is like they sold their soul to the devil in hopes of making an extra penny, as opposed to putting in the hard work that follows simply designing a stellar deck.

How can you not buy these cards? I havent heard a single person say that they don't like them. And I think they're gonna have Aristocrat Stock and Magic Finish! Just like the Vortex deck.

Who said they were not going to buy them? Maybe it was a rhetorical question that I took as an actual question? Anyway, I fully intend on buying 2 sets...one for show and one for tell (get it?). I am just not happy about the way I am going to have to go about getting these. They claim the reasons for their actions is to get the decks to us quicker....fishy if ya ask me

it does seem fishy but i do know that aceking packs them well and better then some main sites i get decks through so i am good for that. i will try to get a brick when i can depending on price. i am trying to get more of a deck so i can do youtube contest and stuff. and for my collection also.

I am sure Aceking does just fine. I have almost bought from them many a time, just have never done so. It is not a problem with the actual resellers, that I have. It is merely a let down of expectations. I had my sights and hopes set on the Seasons deck when I first caught wind of them...I have all but let them go now, due to the extreme disappointment of no KS and the lack of disappointment by Aether.

Guess there won't be any uncut sheets for sale? Or do the Ebay sellers sell that as well?

That is actually a good question. It would be even more disappointing if they don't do uncuts. However, I really don't see a reason for them not to do so. I remember seeing somewhere that they were selling art prints. This deck is very elegant and artsy, so they would be fool not release uncuts. I don't see them bein cheap though.

They are $15 a set, which is cheaper than this vortex deck. I don't think they are expensive.

That's actually not a bad price, makes 2 sets (4 Decks) affordable. Where did you Get the prices?
