Combining the world of secret codes and ciphers with playing cards, ENIGMAS are inspired by the mysterious Riverbank estate, where scientists worked on cryptography projects and exotic animals like alligators, peacocks, monkeys and bears roamed the grounds!
Illustrator Billy French has masterfully captured all of these bizarre and beautiful elements into a seemingly regular deck of cards. Unlike ENIGMAS: Blue however, this limited edition deck features an extra layer of embossing and die-cut windows on the tuck case, showcasing the playing card back design.
The cards themselves are adorned with historically accurate imagery from the Riverbank estate, like its windmill and lighthouse, and even feature owls representing wisdom and learning that are perched on the bookshelves, guarding its secrets.
Delve deeper however, and you'll notice two very special cards, each with its own set of puzzles for you to solve. Solving all the puzzles will unlock an incredible, multilayered, eight-step puzzle hunt expertly designed by Dave Shukan, master puzzle-maker. Combine answers from every puzzle to reveal the final, meta-puzzle answer!
