The Bicycle Pirate decks were designed by Eric Duan aka mloong, and come in a set of white and black editions. Each colour was only printed in quantities of 2500. The backs are one-way because of the symbols of the four cardinal directions, and the Aces of Spades have separate designs in each deck. The white deck's spot cards have certain pips in a light blue colour, and the same light blue is utilized on the court cards along with black and white. Similarly, the black deck's spot cards have certain pips in a purple colour, and the same purple is utilized on the court cards along with red and yellow. However, whereas the court cards of the white deck are symmetrical mirror images, the black deck's court cards are not; they have the purple colour on one side and the more traditional red and yellow on the other. Apart from the colour, the boxes also differ in the map on the front. Distinctly, the corner indices of the cards seem to be slightly farther away from the edge than on a standard deck, and the word "pirate" is misspelled on both of the Aces of Spades. Comes with 2 custom Jokers (one where the mermaid is holding a harp, the other a dagger), custom Ace of Spades, and a double backed gaff card.
