Is $US20 too much for a deck of playing cards styled to look exactly like the pixelated designs in Windows 98 Solitaire? Not a chance. As their creator Evan Roth points out, before the internet Solitaire was the only real distraction an office drone could rely on. So why not give it the respect and immortalisation it deserves with this lovely deck printed on genuine Bicycle playing cards?

A limited edition run of just 500 decks have been produced, so you should go ahead and place your order. If you’re in the market for Solitaire, it’s not like you’ve got much else going on.
