The Black Diamond.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! The time when I get to announce the secret project we've been working on all year.
Yes, it's a new deck (with a twist!), and yes, there's a new puzzle box . . . and I'm thrilled to announce that it's our most visually striking puzzle box yet.
You're going to love the way this one looks in your collection.
Introducing The Black Diamond. Check out the launch video:
Not only does the limited-edition Black Diamond look amazing, but it also feels incredible from the moment you pick it up.
At over two pounds of solid stunning black lacquered maple, this is our most robust puzzle box yet, and it's laser etched with symbols, an ambigram, and a cipher that serves as a hint—because there's no visible way to get the box open.
And it gets better.
Inside the box, you'll find Diamond Jim Tyler's brand new premium playing cards: The Diamond Deck. Each deck comes in a solid black tuck case with embossed lettering and geometric foil stamping . . . and the cards are some of the best we've ever seen (because they've got a secret).
The first thing you notice is that the design is top-notch, blending art deco with Celtic geometry. But the twist lies in what you **don't** notice at first glance:
These cards have all been devilishly marked. "This is the best marking system I've ever seen," is the most common response from people who've seen and handled these. The markings are practically invisible when you don't know the secret, and once you do, they are so incredibly easy to read.
Once you see the marks, you can't unsee them! Try it for yourself:
That's the Nine of Diamonds, King of Hearts, and Ace of Spades.
Did you work out the markings? Pretty freaking ingenious, right? And once you see them, they're HUGE! (If you need a hint, just watch the video above.)
It's everything there is to love about the standard Diamond Deck, but presented with precision gilded edges on the edge of each card that give that extra special touch of elegance.
Oh, and there's even a special challenge coin inside from Diamond Jim. Flash it to Diamond Jim whenever you see him in the wild and I'm sure he'll make it worth your while.
