Designed to resemble an ancient book, its features include a book spine, blood-stained leather binding, and frayed paper edges, and wear-and-tear that look like you have the book itself, sitting on the shelf.

The court cards include characters such as Beowulf, Wiglaf, Grendal, Hrothgar, and others. Each card is designed with an intricate wooden design with gold foiling to emphasize the classical and ancient nature of the story.

I got these for my friend who loves magic tricks and the Beowulf legends. The cards are expertly designed with a lot of references, and they feel great in the hands. 10/10 he absolutely loves them.

Beautiful but...

Sticky. Gorgeous and unique art, but I unfortunately did not enjoy handling this deck. It has an odd shiny finish that prevents the cards from shuffling well. They want to stick instead of sliding against each other, and the deck offgasses significantly. Unfortunately it was a disappointment and I gave it away. That said, if you collect primarily for visual appeal the Beowulf deck is certainly stunning.

My new favorite deck..

This deck grew on me very quickly. At first glance I felt that this deck was dark and that might make it hard to see, but seeing these playing cards on my game table (red background) looked amazing! Fresh out of the box it is difficult to fan out the deck. The new cards feel glossy and that creates a little bit of friction when fanning out on the table or game mat, but see noticeable change after a few game nights! Really love the detail of the box and how it opens and the look of these cards front to back. Job well done!!!
