The Name of the Wind Playing Cards is a 52-card deck of playing cards by Albino Dragon. Its production was funded via a Kickstarter campaign that became the number one most succesful graphic design Kickstarter project.
There are three sets of playing cards available:
- the Standard Edition deck (red back)
- the Limited Edition deck (green back)
- Taborlin the Great's Magician's deck (this is a marked deck, and it comes with an additional card that explains how to read them)
The decks contain custom court and pip cards for characters in The Kingkiller Chronicle. Author Patrick Rothfuss collaborated with the artist, Shane Tyree, to get the details right in the illustrations.
