The Atomic Playing Cards are a component of Unseen Terrors: The Bomb, and Other Bogeymen.  They offer a compact, hand-held atomic history, from the early Greek thinker Democritus who is credited with proposing the Atomic Theory of Matter to Robert Oppenheimer who headed the Manhattan Project that developed the first atomic bombs plus examples of atomic tests and images from popular culture.

They were originally presented in the form of a Baker's Dozen, a simple yet strategic open solitaire game on an old-fashion folding wooden card table.

Sets of Atomic Playing Cards are available for purchase ($50 plus $5 Shipping)
