The Inspiration for this project has been an interesting one. So many of my decks in the past have centered around a theme or a specific moment in History. Because of this, I have always had historical characters to feature in my decks depending on the theme.
For this project, the beginnings were a little bit different. Many times between projects I will spend a few days just gathering reference and pouring over tons of beautiful images of art and other things that I might find inspiration from.
As I was searching for a creative direction for a new project, a song began to play on my playlist that really caught my attention. My wife sometimes calls me a nerd in my choice of music. I enjoy listening to all types of music but when I am working I seem to find the most focus listening to instrumental music from cinema, games, and other types of media.
This song captivated me, and it was the catalyst for the entire project. I put it on repeat and listened to it to all day while creating a completely new set of court cards from the images of, what I would describe as a mixture of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. The designs that transpired over the course of the day were promising to me, and most of very different from any of my previous work.
The title of the deck was actually derived from the title of the song that sparked it, Invocation.

The cards were great and the design is super cool. The only problem was the bottom piece holding the box together, the glue unstuck. But that was probably my fault.
Let customers speak for us
This is one of the best appearing decks I own. On the downside, they do seem to be a little thinner(?) than a normal deck, which could lead to them bending easier. Shuffling definitely feels like you are shuffling thin cards. They are amazing looking, though, and that is why I bought them. I mainly wanted to keep them in my bag for practice with false shuffles and one handed solitare when I'm traveling, so we shall see how they hold up. I may just keep them in my display of collector decks that don't get much use. I'm amassing quite a little collection thanks to Kings Wild Project! Either way, my recommendation is to definitely buy this deck! You will love it!
These cards are beautiful and classy. Easily my favorite deck.
Excellent artwork, including the case.
Beyond my expectations!! Amazing details are a feast for the eyes. Most entertaining and satisfying luxury deck I’ve seen so far.
These cards are gorgeous! I don’t think they could have done a better job. Perfection.
I got my cards in 4days. They were very nicely packed. P.s nice attention to detail with all product I received. The art work was awesome!!!
My dad is a Marine and I bought these for him as a gift. Awesome quality and almost to nice to use. I believe he has his in his display cabinet at home with his other Marine memorabilia. Great job KWP.
It is the little touches which really got me. Each suit has a different map behind the pips. The artwork is incredible and all who's seen my desk are impressed with the overall look. Keep up the good work!
I cannot really find the words to describe how beautiful and unique the artwork is on this deck of cards!! I am a huge ancient History buff and I completely appreciate this deck of cards!!!
As the title suggests , and I only bought the standard edition.. just beautiful!
These cards a so well made. The art is beautiful, and the card quality is absolutely amazing. For some strange reason, mine smell like wet dirt? But I will not hold it against them because of all the effort and hard work that went into them.
Love the design!
I like them. Next time, include a card with Bridge scores...
Wonderful artwork. This deck is a great reflection of a great story.
Beautiful deck of cards, great addition to my playing card collection.
