This deck of 52 playing cards features an illustration of a Singapore icon on each card, such as HDB flats, Gardens by the Bay and an ERP gantry. Favourite local foods, such as chicken rice, chilli crab and White Rabbit candy are also among the designs. The late founding Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew is the ace of spades, while blogger Amos Yee and former Singapore Idol contestant Steven Lim are on the joker cards.
The deck was created by local social media agency Protocol.
Its managing director Kelvin Kao, 36, says the inspiration “comes from a place of deep, abiding love of all things weird and wonderful about Singapore”.
He adds: “It embraces the entire spectrum of who we are and what we have grown to become.”
