Forget about your boring playing cards, the Pipmen: World Playing Cards by Elephant Playing Cards you see here is the playing cards you want if you desire for something beyond a game of poker and black jack. What makes Pipmen: World Playing Cards is how each card’s graphics is unique and they come together, much like a puzzle, to form a unique Pipmen World, thus making it the world’s first 54-piece polyptych puzzle with unique connected scenes. Pipmen by itself is intriguing too. In addition to the Pip (which are basically suit symbols on the card face), the cards feature little stickmen figures interacting with the pips to create a unique scene.
While Pipmen is what sets the Australia playing cards company apart from its cohorts, the all-new Pipmen: World Playing Cards is the one that takes differentiation to a new level by giving you the fun of putting together a Pipmen world apart from using them for a round or two of typical card games. Spread across the 54 unique cards that form the beautiful Pipmen world are 158 individual Pipmen, 16 different terrains, 6 UFOs, 5 eagles, 4 skeletons, 3 cows, and 2 rockets.

Something which I have never seen before. And I am not even pretending to be surprised. It is totally unique and definitely a deck that’s worthy of any playing cards collectors’ attention.
