Professional puzzle-crafter (and author of the book A Maze of Games) Mike Selinker admits he's never seen a puzzle like this before.

This deck of cards was originally described in the “Zork” text adventure games published in the 1980s. I decided I wanted an actual physical Fanucci deck, even though it has 15 suits, and a total of 174 cards. Then I invented some games to play with it. The deck is currently available through Gamecrafter.
The original ‘Improbable Objects,’ my parking sticker series are uniquely serial numbered parking permits for your car window for places that don’t really exist, like Starfleet Academy, Hogwarts, Oceanic Airlines, Wayne Industries, and many many more. Also found at my store.
Primal Order: The Planes of Possibility
Before Wizards of the Coast made Magic, they made RPG supplements, and I was one of the authors involved with their flagship line. I have the last remaining new copies of the non-system-specific book I wrote about the theory and practice of using planes in your role-playing games. Rated 5 out of 6 by Dragon Magazine.
There's also the Twitter Feed, which is usually the first place new products are announced.
