I’m donating a percentage of the proceeds to various charity organisations. Read more about that in this post.
I am currently in the process of creating a card game for climbers and I want to take you with me on the journey.
So the idea is to make a playing card deck with 52 cards + 3 jokers for the climbing community with caricatures of popular climbers.
Above you can see an example card with Adam Ondra. The cards will have lots of details which are characteristic for the respective climber, like Adams power scream.
Update: I’ve got all the approvals and we are now in the design stage where we finalize the card deck design to make it ready for production. Stay tuned with the card deck newsletter below.
Before going into production, I want to get the approval of each climber because of legal reasons. As you can imagine it is not that easy to reach out to the most famous climbers so that’s why I want to involve you in this process. Please have a look at the following list and reach out to me via instagram (@bestboulders) or mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help to get an approval. It’s nothing fancy, I just need a little message that it is ok to use a caricature of the climber for the card deck.
I’ll update the list regularly.
