Two Complementary Decks of Playing Cards
Inspired by the Pantheon of Baltic Gods
The aim of this project is to restore the pantheon of the Lithuanian/Baltic gods as a logical and coherent system. Furthermore, the card design also has many encoded meanings and the game is being extended to 108 playing cards - two decks: “The Dark” and “The Light”. These two decks represent the full pantheon of gods and goddesses of ancient Lithuanian/Baltics faiths.
DAUSOS playing cards decks come in two editions. The Standard Edition is the traditional color card solution on a Premium Casino Grade Paper Stock, while the Golden Edition uses gilded edges and monochrome graphics on aged gold ink background, giving the cards a mystical luxury and a vintage touch.
"These decks of DAUSOS are a mythological metaphor of Life and the godly play of eternal forces.”

ABOUT PROJECT DAUSOS
Dausos: The Full House of Gods is an upcoming card game inspired by the Lithuanian / Baltic ancient mythology. These two decks of playing cards are simply designed to take the very concept of card games to the next level and the creators of this game are currently raising funds and support for this amazing project on Kickstarter, where they are welcoming generous pledges and donations.
Lithuanian / Baltic ancient mythology is rich but less studied than others like Greek, Roman, or Norse. However, it is easy to find parallels between myths and characters. It forms an independent original religious tradition. Some myths and memories of which are so archaic that they have remained unchanged since prehistoric times, and are of significance to those exploring the origins of Proto-Indo-Europeans.
