I think that people are not seeing it. If you type tarot into kickstarter it will not appear in the search results. Kickstarter always shows me random tarot projects when I log in but it does not show me Tinker's. There is either something technically wrong with the way that he set up his project or, what I think, is that the word "damn" is setting off some kind of filter so it won't show up unless you specifically search for it.

I have no doubt this deck would fund itself easily if people could find it as easily as any other deck on the site.

It's slowed right down again. Just 10 days left to go and a quarter of the funds still to raise. :icon_cry:

Why won't people buy this deck?? It's fantastic! I tried posting in other places too but... :icon_e_confused:

I don't think people know about it. He listed it under playing cards, which isn't where most of the tarot decks live. It impedes his search results and especially suggested projects.

I have his trick or Tarot deck, he was going to add on some of his other decks, as stretch goals while we did make goal it was not enough to be able to get a copy of one of two of his other decks at an inexpensive price. Wanted ARTHUR RACKHAM Oracle real bad. Hope he does a Kickstarter for it. 🤞

Well, I think the best way to encourage future kickstarters is to make his current one a success. I think you should get a Tinker's Damn. :thumbup:

I'm SO tempted to back this deck although we're really in money troubles. I love Freder's work, and to have this wonderful deck plus the Mantegna additions... I don't know how to dis-enable myself. But we're oh so cramped right now. What a dilemma. Whenever I see his work, I hear in my head John Lennon's voice singing "the Hendersons will all be there and later Pablo Fanque's fair... don't be late..."

There's only 5 days left :icon_e_ugeek:

I don't know what to tell you. If you can't, you can't, although this is probably the best chance of getting one since it's so freaking expensive to get them from his regular site. I don't really buy very many decks, at least compared to all of you here so when there's one I want I usually don't have to weigh it too heavily. Nevertheless, if this goes through, I think I'll wait until the fall to get a Dark Carnival. I got a Tabula Mundi at the the end of the year, I have a Victorian Romantic coming in the spring, and this would likely arrive in the summer. A deck per season is crazy talk for the likes of me. As I say this I hear you and Charlotte laughing from across the oceans.

I've also spent an entire $6 on a Piatnik lenormand which has yet to arrive.

That's great! Thanks for keeping me posted. I've got a crappy headache this morning and that was a nice touch of good news. He had BIG day yesterday—almost 2k it looks like.
