Here we are, Humanities Bad Apples. Well, it’s a start anyway. Humans are a complex species; we are enthralled by the best and worse we have to offer. We started this deck as “most Wanted” but we wanted to broaden it so, later on, we can include international criminals. We do need to say, we don’t condone violence, theft, or any other various crimes nor are we here to glorify those things.
History though is full of the best and worst and a million people in between and we’re going to try to cover them all. Also, who doesn’t like to play the bad guy sometimes? if you do, this deck is for you! This is a deck full of the five most wantable men and women… oh… most wanted… well, either way. As a team they are, well, Unstoppable and you can be too!
Al “Scarface” Capone
Al “Scarface” Capone is the first name to come to mind when Americans think of gangsters and criminals. He was an American crime boss who amassed a large amount of fortune and fame during his time as a criminal. Eventually, after seven years as a crime boss, Capone was arrested and imprisoned for tax evasion.
Remember kids, the government does NOT mess around when it comes to getting their money. Al Capone was a money-for-breakfast kind of guy, we’re working on a theory that green and gold were his favorite colors. With that thought in mind, his moves are very clearly as money motivated as he was. Capone can manipulate your cash flow, bribe people, and even make people disappear.
Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are sometimes called the Romeo and Juliette of crime. Bonnie was actually married to another criminal when she met Clyde and started her life of crime.
Clyde, on the other hand, was unmarried but had already been in trouble with the law. Clyde turned to crime to escape the poverty of his childhood. Together Bonnie and Clyde did many unspeakable things and lived a life on the run that ended quite tragically.
Bonnie and Clyde took what wasn’t theirs, they let other people do the work and they got all the goods! They will steal your rival’s health and skip away holding hands.
John Dillinger, as with many bank robbers, Dillinger was compared to Robin Hood because people often see those who have more as villain’s and tend to relate more with people who struggle. Dillinger had the looks and personality to capture a nation and the newspapers of the times wrote many stories about him which helped to grow his public persona.
John Dillinger was a master at deception, what you thought you knew was wrong and his cards are the very same. If you think someone is gone for good, they may just come back. Never expect that you know all the information all the time or John Dillinger will remind you, you might need to look again.
Lester Gillis aka George “Baby Face” Nelson; you know you’ve gotta be bad when you change your whole name to avoid being discovered. Known as someone who had little regard for human life, he left behind him nothing but misery and loss.
Even some of the biggest names in crime wouldn’t work with him because of his violent ways. Oh, and he very famously HATED his nickname. Lester believed if you thought it was yours, it was actually his. His moves make this unmistakably clear.
