Card Game Lauded As Uno With An Edge Just Released
Have fun, and try to stay friends
The Devil's Hand, a card game that is described as the dark side of Uno, just released in the apples+oranges Amazon store today. The brainchild of a bunch of Jersey boys, Devil's Hand promises a unique combination of the traditionally-loved Crazy Eights card game with the manipulation, strategizing, and deception of "Bullshit" (known as "Cheat" in England).
The idea came about when DIGGS, the creator, struck a deal with an 80 year old man named Harold with a large number of excess cards in stock. "Harold was stuck with 18,000 decks of cards – a crazy amount. He used to be in the printing business. I think until he sells those cards, he still is!"
These weren't average playing cards, though. Printed on every single card was an image of one of six famous paintings by Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
Arcimboldo was a 16th Century artist, whose portraits of human heads made up of vegetables, plants, fruits, sea creatures and tree roots made him famous among his contemporaries. "They're kinda creepy," DIGGS confided. "It's no wonder people think he (Arcimboldo) might have been deranged."
But that was the inspiration they needed. Matt and his friends had been playing Crazy Eights with these twisted rules for a long time, themselves. But, now they had a set of cards that truly matched the style of the game.
"We decided to package them together," said DIGGS. "'Cause why the hell not?"
The set consists of two decks of cards, along with the rule book and the tale of how the game came to be. Customers can choose the artwork they like best out of six options – the four seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter), his famous Flora, and Vortumnus, Roman God of the Seasons. All images are available for perusal on the apples+oranges home page.
There is no game box, but items will be shipped together and plastic wrapped for safety.
The Devil's Hand is available through apples+oranges on Amazon starting today for $12.95 with free shipping. Quantities are limited, as once Harold runs out of cards, he will not print anymore.
apples+oranges is a company that rings true to the idiom - all of our products are different and cannot be compared! We pride ourselves in presenting items that are unique and have an interesting background story, like these Card Games.
