Well, history is repeating itself, this time with their latest launch: A Singapore Airlines limited-edition poker set that has everything you need for a round or two with your poker kakis — and plenty of photo opps so you can flex on Instagram.
That is, if you can get your paws on the poker set in the first place. Pre-orders for KrisFlyer members opened on KrisShop yesterday (Nov 16) and was meant to run until Dec 15. However, it was sold out in less than one day by 4pm yesterday.
Priced at $318, the exclusive poker set comes encased in a cool, rather retro-looking black leather carrier with batik prints subtly embossed on the front.
Inside, there are two bespoke poker decks, one dice shaker, six gold aluminium dice, and one dealer/player button, blind buttons (one big and one small) and 350 poker chips (100 gold, 100 blue, 50 purple, 50 red and 50 green). The various elements in this ornate blue-and-gold poker set comes embellished with Singapore Airlines’ signature batik print and travel-related and aircraft elements and emblems. Fancy.
Poker diehards can top up $45 for a batik-printed non-slip poker mat that comes with a carry case, or buy it for $59 on its own.
While it's currently sold out on KrisShop, there are other ways to snag a set if you're really desperate. Carousellers have already put them up for sale since yesterday, listing them at $750 to $800 per set. That’s about two-and-a-half times the original price.
But hold your horses — don’t need to nego for a fast deal on Carousell just yet. KrisShop was originally slated to open pre-orders to the general public on Nov 18. 8 Days has reached out to KrisShop to find out if more sets will be available for pre-order. Watch this space for updates.
[Update: Pre-orders for the poker set are back on for KrisFlyer members. More details here.]
