At Cartesian Cards we make cards with an extra dimension. More than just beautifully designed playing cards - all our cards have an additional use beyond just playing card games.

Oh, and we also hold a Guinness World Record.

Cocktail Cards are the ultimate cocktail reference guide. All the cocktails you need to know, and how to make them, in one deck of quality playing cards. From a Vesper Martini to an Old Fashioned, these cards have you covered.

They're regular poker size cards so once you've got your drinks you can get on with the games.

The usual 52 cards of a standard deck, but as well as regular playing card markings, the cards have multiple symbols allowing for all the different games. The dark back of the cards can be used to make the chequered playing board itself!

Oh, and as you might have noticed, the cards are square...

Wine Cards are regular size playing cards with useful and interesting information about wine on them.

Have fun learning about wine, feel more confident buying and ordering wine, and impress your friends! They're also the perfect gift for any wine lovers in your life.

    These were fab, even better than I had expected! High quality, professionally printed, with a great range of cocktail recipes - can’t complain! Bought as an early Xmas present for my boyfriend and he loved them, many thanks :)

  • Deborah N, UK ★★★★★

    These cocktail cards are such a good idea and good quality. I have purchased them for a friend's hen night and will use them for a cocktail making game. The cocktail recipes are easy and don't need lots of ingredients.

    The One Deck is cleverness at its best. It's reassuring to know there are smart humans using their brains to create excellent things like the One Deck.
