The Arcana Artifact

Note: New Artifacts are made with cherry wood. No excess force is needed to open the box. You can order Arcana Playing Cards by themselves here (without the Arcana Artifact Box.)

Over three years, we worked with top quality artists to create something classy, mysterious and haunting... something that feels like an artifact stolen from a secret society... a relic from another world.

This deck oozes character and backstory.  It feels somehow... alive in your hands.  Every time I look at it, I discover new hints about its world.

We worked directly with our friends at Theory11 and the US Playing Card company when designing ARCANA, so you know you're getting a no-holds-barred, top-of-the-line quality deck of premium playing cards. 

These cards are exquisite, and you're going to love them.

But for our limited-edition launch, we wanted to create something truly unforgettable.

For an extremely limited time, early adopters can get the full Arcana Artifact experience... and it may in fact be the coolest thing we've ever created here at Scam Stuff.

The limited-edition Arcana Artifact comes in an heirloom-quality locked puzzle box, and here's the important part: we will not give you the combination to get inside.

I know that sounds insane, but this is your test:  by now you've seen 8 years of Scam School lessons on lock-picking, puzzle-solving, and social engineering.

You have all the skills of a modern rogue at your disposal to get this thing open, and you already have all the information you need to solve this puzzle.

And once you open it, you get to join a very special, very exclusive club.

Inside the box you'll find both Arcana Alpha and Arcana Omega, along with an extremely limited edition numbered challenge coin.

This is your Scam School diploma.  Once you solve the puzzle, you'll join an elite league of Modern Rogues.  Those who have put their Scam School skills to the test and opened the Arcana Artifact.

That's right.  The cards and coin are locked away in the box, and we're not giving up the answer to get inside.

But oh the sweet, sweet sense of victory when you unlock your coin and be among the first to see the decks?  You'll never forget that.

More importantly:  if I ever catch you out in the wild with this challenge coin in hand?  I owe you a drink on the spot.  Because I'll know you're a true Modern Rogue.

Oh, man... You're gonna love this, and I can't wait to hear about your adventure with it,

Brian Brushwood
