This week has been a hectic blur as we work toward moving a number of projects forward. It has been full of meetings, telephone calls, and hammering away at the keyboard. Energy remains high at the office and among our fans. People are excited about the Rifts® poker decks and Carmen Bellaire’s Rifts® Board Game (2017), as well as upcoming releases. Others are anxious to see more movement and material items for Wave 2 of Robotech® RPG Tactics™ – as are we. We also share with you more Gen Con 2016 moments in photos and present you some of what’s popping at Palladium Books.
NEWS! Rifts® Poker Decks available as add-ons for Rifts® Savage World Kickstarter backers
For a few weeks now, Rifts® Savage Worlds Kickstarter backers have been asking Palladium Books and Pinnacle Entertainment to make the Rifts® Poker Decks available as rewards in the Rifts® Savage Worlds Kickstarter. So when Pinnacle approached us to do just that, we quickly agreed.
The two Rifts® Poker Decks have been selling like hot cakes to Rifts® gamers as well as Action Decks to Rifts® Savage Worlds players. Our trial run of 150 decks are nearly sold out in just two weeks since Gen Con, and an order for more has already been submitted so we do not run out of stock.
Both sets of Rifts® playing cards are proving to be extremely popular as they each present iconic images from fan fave covers and illustrations in the Rifts® game series, and can be used as an Action Deck for Rifts® Savage Worlds!
If you want something that visually summarizes Rifts® with powerful images of iconic characters, mecha and monsters, then these playing cards are a must for you. Or maybe you are looking for an attractive deck or two for playing cards, or simply to complete your Rifts® collection. The two Rifts® Poker Decks are handsome, fun, and useful items to own. They are an excellent addition to any Palladium collection and make nice gifts. Both are available from Palladium Books in an attractive, full color box – right now.
- Rifts® Poker Deck Number One (color) – $11.99 – Cat. No. 2575 – available now.
- Rifts® Poker Deck Number Two (line art) – $11.99 – Cat. No. 2576 – available now.
