With the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 and some predicting that it could mean the end, this Doomsday deck of cards will help players forget their troubles with each hand.

Manufactured by classic card maker Bicycle, the Doomsday deck features contemporary designs that emulate Mayan art and incorporate a number of sugar skulls throughout to add an end-of-days-esque feeling. While it may appear to be a bit morbid at first glance, the beautifully designed cards make a perfect addition to any card game with friends.

The Doomsday deck is designed by Diamond Jim Tyler and is described by Bicycle as in line with his other designs, "that are intrinsically magical to inspire his performances and to reach the subconscious of his spectators." Grab a deck before the Mayan calendar finishes for a little end-of-the-world poker. Stats for Apocalyptic Playing Cards Trending: Older & Chilly
