“The Year of the Snake Limited Edition Octopus Set” is the latest series of the Chinese zodiac theme, comes in two unique designs and is numbered and limited to 2,000 pieces each. The featured snakes on the Limited Edition Octopus Cards are drawn in Chinese traditional art and are paired with colorful and festive backgrounds.
