China has become a major player when it comes to producing odd shaped decks. Some have been commissioned by publishers from other countries.
deck is one of a series of 5 different "holidays" decks. They
were all printed in China and published in the USA in 2002 by Fundex
one was named "Easter" and shows a bunny on the backs. The
design "explains" the chosen shape.
another deck from this series. It's titled "Halloween" and
shows a ghost on the backs.
Each of these decks
consists of 52 cards, 2 jokers and an extra card. The deck can be used
to play all regular games, but the extra cards also give the possibility
to play a special game for 3 or more children. For this deck the game is
called "Scary Eights".
