Default Presenting the Art Fighters Playing Card Company

For those who don't know it yet, we are going to produce playing cards!

You may actually wonder: "But Mark, it says 'Art Fighters'. Isn't that kind of negative, like crime fighters, who fight the crime? You don't fight the art, do you?"

Yes and no. We indeed fight for the art instead of against it, but in order to do so we also fight against the art the way it currently is. Almost every deck we will produce will have a special meaning based on the overly commercialized world of playing cards.

The decks will be sold in a Kickstarter-kind of way, in which we will take preorders and have the decks produced as soon as we reached a specific amount of orders. The preorder goals will be fairly low so that people don't have to wait for ages before they receive their decks. This however also means the decks won't be supercheap (but not superexpensive either). As always, we tend to break even.

The AFPCC website with more information is coming soon. Stay tuned!

I'm disinclined to believe the latter statement.

my reason would be the easiest reason there is: because i don't have the proper form of payment. i can only buy stuffs like cards and gimmicks through real life exchange of money and item. and thus, making it impossible for me to actually GET anything more than a cheap item from the store

Well, you could always pay us through Western Union, though I think their service would cost more than the items unless you order quite some things at once. Easier (though WU is rather simple) would be to know someone who does actually have access to a proper form of payment and paying that person in cash yourself, I guess. Or send us a letter with cash (exchanged to Euros or exchange service costs included).

Just three options, two of which would definitely work for you, or anyone else for that matter.

And you can always get a junior credit card. Most of them are completely free, and you can use them at paypal with a small ammount of money, so it's relatively safe. Mine's just arrived, waiting to get my paypal validation. Then I can finally buy Interception. AHHHYEAH

I get my mother to buy things with her credit card and I give her the momey there and then, she then uses the money to pay the money that was used from her credit card.

Thanks you guys for telling me those options... but apparently... they all have one big flaw that makes my life only half as enjoyable as it should be: my parents.

The culture here states that the child must obey the parents or the guardians, and it's been drilled very deeply into my mind, and as of lately the restraints they put on me is increasing, thus making it virtually impossible to do such a thing like buying new stuffs unless they say it's OK to( and, they say No to any purchases that could possibly hinder my studies, which, in their mind, is related to magic)

I'd highly reccomend you going and getting a job, so you can manage your finances on your own.

Good ol' cultural differences. Sometimes you'd forget that they still exist.

I could never imagine living in such a culture, at least not without doing things my parents wouldn't allow. I probably would've gone to the nearest WU bank to send some cash for downloadables so my parents would never figure (hey, that's just me.. don't actually do that).

But yeah, back when I was 16 (and even a couple of years before that), I had to work next to the study in order to make my own money, and then I could spend it on whatever too. What about you ask your parents for some magic/card-related things for your birthday or any other present-receiving day you got there?

If it were me I'd just call in a passing UFO and get a one way ticket to the Bahamas!
