An example of the front and back of SCP-XXXX instances

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe (Pending Euclid)

Special Containment Procedures: All instances of SCP-XXXX are to be kept in a waterproof container which is to be kept in a standard containment storage locker.

Each instance of SCP-XXXX is to be placed in a water-resistant card sleeve and kept in a secure combination locked case separate from other SCP-XXXX instances. Cases containing SCP-XXXX instances are to be kept in a secure storage room.

Foundation personnel are to attempt to confirm the existence of, and track down and contain the two additional instances of SCP-XXXX believed to currently be outside of containment.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a set of 52 Eastern Highland brand playing cards. The cards are the size of standard poker cards1. The back sides of the cards all appear to have a white border surrounding a black pattern. The front sides of the cards appear to be the fronts of random cards of varying types (see experiment logs for complete list of discovered card types). When these cards are shuffled together the fronts of the cards appear to display an entirely new set of cards. This occurs whenever any number of these cards are shuffled together in numbers as low as two. Mixing other types of cards, including cards of the same brand, does not modify this effect and extra cards added do not change or display other anomalous properties. Even with extra non-anomalous cards, at least two instances of SCP-XXXX must be shuffled together in order for the effect to take place.

The anomalous properties of the cards become apparent when the front sides of SCP-XXXX instances are viewed. The front sides appear as the fronts of any type of card that is a similar size. The cards remain in this state indefinitely but can be changed by shuffling them together.
Addendum 1: Experiment Logs.

Addendum 2: During testing researchers discovered that a Foundation access key card manifested among the card fronts. Testing indicated that the key card functioned as normal. Due to the potential threat that a containment breach could present the containment procedures have been updated to improve security. A request to upgrade the object class to Euclid has been sent.

Request Denied. The new containment procedures should be adequate to prevent any threat that this item could pose. -Site Director Hammond

Addendum 3: Additional Research has shown that this brand of cards contain 54 in a set. Two cards from this set are currently not accounted for. It is unknown whether the final two cards exist and if they display similar anomalous properties to the rest of the set. Confirming the existence of these two additional cards and retrieving them is considered a high priority task. Another request has been sent to upgrade the object class to Euclid for as long as it exists outside of containment.


  • Rewrite containment procedures
    • Remember an indecent hasn't happened, Foundation just going in depth to prevent one
  • "The cards are the size of standard poker cards[footnote]", necessary?
    • Keep for now
  • Point of article to show how foundation can get paranoid over little things, Make that more obvious!
  • Fix formatting for entire article
    • Box for Logs
    • Spacing for addendums
    • Paragraphing for description
  • Go more in depth in experiment logs
  • Make description of cards more in depth
  • Why wouldn't addendums 2 and 3 be something that Foundation didn't know already? Add details.
  • Last two addendum try and make two separate points and don't flow nicely, Remove one?
