"Only those who pass the nine tests can enter the Mictlan. Only he who is worthy will live eternally with his ancestors in The Kingdom of the Dead."
Welcome to El Reino de los Muertos - Expert Edition, an artistic and cultural project that celebrates life and death in the Mexican culture. This project is not only a card game, it is a narrative, a desire to recover and exalt Mexican traditions.
In this tribute - to our ancestors and heroes, to Guadalupe Posada and to the great Mexican engravers; to Death, to Life - you'll find iconic characters from Mexican culture, from classics like La Catrina, to revolutionary heroes and pre-Hispanic gods.
We retake iconic elements of Mexican culture, from pre-Hispanic times to the present day, and adapt them congruently to the classic language of the Poker deck, with a deep respect for the aesthetics of our country and the style of the Court card figures.
We created a balanced and eloquent graphic mix that harnesses the power of the traditional aesthetics of the Day of the Dead and expresses itself through the language of Poker figures to achieve a style never seen before in this type of object.
