Gjallarhorn Baldr Playing Cards
Norse playing cards containing uniquely designed, hand drawn, traditional interpretations of the Viking gods at the dawn of Ragnarök.
The interest in the Norse gods has grown substantially in popularity from the emerging archeological finds, television shows, and Marvel movies. We are learning more about the Viking culture every day and people want more! We decided we wanted more as well – a playing card deck featuring a more authentic interpretation of the Norse gods. So, we went digging into the sagas and decided to create a deck based on the famous final battle of Ragnarök. GJALLARHORN, or the Yelling Horn, is known by many as the horn wielded by Heimdallr to announce the coming of Ragnarök.When sounded, all of the players of the final battle will gather; Odin, Thor, Loki, Hel, Tyr, and many others. Once gathered, the mighty battle will begin. Here, in this unique deck, we have gathered the deities and creatures who will play an important role in this battle. The GJALLARHORN is sounding! Will you join your fellow warriors in battle?
The striking box design of the GJALLARHORN deck incorporates elements from the card back design to create a cohesive deck that is sure to inspire. Each deck comes complete with an embossed Valknut symbol in either Gold or Silver foil.
A deck worthy of the gods! We have taken every step to ensure that the GJALLARHORN Deck will be the pinnacle of quality:
► High Quality 310 gsm German card stock
► Unique Norse mammen art style inspired box and card designs.
► Gold/Silver foiled, embossed tuck boxes
► 100% unique courts illustrated by hand in the Art Nouveau style
