Yesterday the Alleyway Oracles reached the $500,000 mark! You don't want to miss out on this campaign! The original Alleyman Tarot was the highest backed tarot deck of all time and know the creative mind behind it has birthed not 1, not 2 but 3 new and original decks. The Alleyway Tarot, The Oracle of Play and The Oracle of Secrets. Each deck is compiled of mismatched cards made by different artists from all over. Even little ol me has a card from my Unraveled deck included in the Oracle of Play (bottom row in the middle). If you'd like to see some of my Alleyman Tarot or my brand new @publishinggoblin Oracle Dice just ask or check out my other posts to see them both in action. Seriously this idea has got people buzzing and whole communities of creators have gathered to collaborate and grow. It's such a wonderful thing to be a part of. The link to the Kickstarter campaign is below.

You've likely heard of the o riginal Alleyman's Tarot, which is made of over 130 mismatched cards by all different artists. This campaign soon became the highest backed tarot deck ever in Kickstarter history! Decks made up of a melange of cards isn't new but the Alleyman Tarot really brought it into the forefront. There is a group on Facebook that I discovered recently called The Alley where many fans have gathered to swap cards to create their own themed decks which are called Magpie Decks - or Patchwork deck (which I love). I have recently become OBSESSED which doing this myself and have already started to trade a buy individual cards.
This is also a great way to collect your fav cards from your fav decks that you may not have been able to get a hold of. Or are special/rare like this Lovers card of Matthew Ryan Cohn and his wife Regina Marie Cohn that I got from the Oddities Flea Market in Chicago this year.
