Blue Blood Playing Cards

Everyone needs at least one quality deck of playing cards. Once you start drinking things that don’t come in Vortex bottles when you play poker you need to step up your card preferences too. The Bicycle two-pack is fine in a pinch, or for a bit of nostalgia, but there are way better looking conversation pieces that come in 52 card packs. Chicago design studio Uusi’s Blue Blood Playing Cards aren’t just gorgeously illustrated and functional, they have a story. They’re going to eventually be printed by the US Playing Card Company on Bicycle-grade stock with magic finish, so they’ll feel similar but with a brand new paint job. What you’re really getting then is 52 different pieces of artwork for $0.22 each that you can also play with. And we though art collecting would never be fun.

Whether you’re trying to refine your archery skills or just get a leg up on the competition when it comes to office warfare, the BB Sniper mini crossbow from Uncommon Carry will fit the bill. Handmade out of stainless steel and equipped with a self-loading chamber, the BB Sniper is designed to hurl projectiles like toothpicks or mini BBs with surprising accuracy at a range of about 30-50 feet. Make sure to schedule some time for target practice because this addictive little crossbow can do some damage. Have fun, but avoid the sensitive areas.
