Casinoville is an original creation of Bunkle & Pink. However, the first incarnation of the four monk chartacters form Casinoville appeared, in 2003, in an 11-page experimental comic, entitled The Brotherhood of the Four Suits: Cause and Defect, created by Mr. Bunkle. This story was published in a collective comic book, entitled Exit 13, which included works of 10 comic book artists.
The Brotherhood of the Four Suits was the story of an order of monks who effectively control the fate of the planet. The story was fun to read but it was much experimental in nature. In late 2005 Mr. Bunkle showed his work to his friend Mr. Pink (these are not their real names -- duh! -- but since he wishes to remain anonymous, they will be the only names you will know them by). Mr. Pink was immediately impresses with Mr. Bunkle's monk characters and proposed to develop these characters further, into a project. Soon the two began brainstorming, started writing stories, redesigned the characters and developed their personalities, and eventualy Casinoville was born.
In real life, Mr. Pink is a professional card mechanic with considerable artistic talents; his partner Mr. Bunkle is a commercial artist with absolutely no iterest in gambling. In real life they are personal friends and they decided to create a story about four monks that are running a crooked gambling casino, for the purpose of collecting all the money in the world. Together they decided to call this project Casinoville. This site is built as an extention of Mr. Pink's popular card-cheating web site CARDSHARK Online. Some other gambling resources on the web include our other sister site Playing Cards Online for playing card resources on the web, such as articles on the history of playing cards, collection of playing cards, rules of card games and more. Furthermore, for those looking to see live demonstrations of casino cheating and crooked gambling please visit our sister site Bustout Dealer, where you can get information on casino cheating at blackjack.
Some of the other inspirations for this project were Dostoevsky's novel, The Gambler, and Umberto Eco's masterpiece, The Name of the Rose. Some of the monks in our cartoon represent real-life characters. Although some of the stories in our cartoons are loosely based on real-life anecdotes, most stories are pure fiction.
Some of the materials on this site are free. But since it does take a considerable amount of work to put together something like this there is no reason why we shouldn't charge for access to the content. If you are already used to paying for movies, concerts, books, DVDs and all the other media that provides entertainment, you should not have any trouble throwing in a couple of bucks for this.
