In April of 2008, theory11 set out to create the next standard in playing card design. Their focus was dual: design and quality. The deck had to be the best of breed in both categories.

Bicycle Guardians playing cards are theory 11's second deck.

On the design front, theory11 teamed up with WA007 - one of the most respected, avant-garde design studios in the nation - and worked side by side tirelessly for weeks. Hundreds of hours were spent tweaking and polishing the design from the ground up. Over 17 rough draft concepts and prototypes were produced. The final result is a mix of modern core structure, contemporary style, and a touch of theory11 signature grunge.

theory11 has set the bar high month after month, pushing the envelope with each playing card release from Guardians to Monarchs to Steampunks. We don't rest.

It started with an idea born 30,000 feet in the air. On a flight back to New York City from Magic-Con, theory11 CEO Jonathan Bayme made a quick sketch on his iPhone. Over the months that followed, theory11 refined the concept with illustrations prepared specifically for the deck after hundreds of pages of research on the history of magic, hermeticism, secret societies, and mythology. The result is jaw dropping.


Printed exclusively in Q1 quality on the casino web press at the United States Playing Card Company, under strict supervision from senior press technicians. They've been called "the world's finest deck of cards."
