We play all the time, I decided to make something different and simple based on ancient Egyptian characters. So, I replaced the characters in the playing card with Pharaonic characters, for example, I drew King Ramses the Second and the Queen and used some ancient Pharaonic deities such as Hewars, who is the sun god of the ancient Egyptians, and the God Thoth the philosopher and the Lord of Ashmonin. I used line art to match my classic and minimalist idea.

What’s Unique?
Most of the pharaonic souvenirs are pharaonic status, paintings, and ancient Egyptian products with very high quality and some high prices so let’s have simple souvenirs with high quality and a little fun.
