I bought a Key to the Kingdom deck. This one: http://www.dxpo-playingcards.com/xpo/art/xpokey01.htm

It's a strange little thing. Each card comes with a rhyme. Anyone have it? What do you think?

I have it and it provides endless amusement.
Does your copy have a booklet with the little riddle you're supposed to solve?  It was a contest--someone must have won it.  I can get part of it.  Not a big part.

Mine comes with a little fold-out booklet as well as a proper book. I haven't found the riddle yet. But I'm trying to read with the deck, using the images and the rhymes. Very strange experience.

First you must find the cards mentioned in the Mystery Riddle.  Then you must use these cards to decipher the phrase.  After you solve the Mystery Riddle, rearrange the letters of the words "Spades, Clubs, Hearts, Diamonds" to form a  sentence.  Sentences will be judged according to their sophistication, wit, and relevance to THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM theme.

ALL CARDS TWICE TWENTY-SIX IN NUMBER HOLD
WITH CRYPTIC GUILE THE KEY TO KINGDOM'S GOLD.
FOURTEEN IN THIS ENIGMA, IF YOU PLEASE,
AN INSECT WDDING STARTS YOU OFF WITH EASE;
THE ACHE DISTURBED A MAN'S UNLAWFUL HOUSE;
NEXT RARE BEN'S RHYME, FIVE OPERAS BY STRAUSS;
DARK NEWS FROM 1912, WHEN SUDDEN STRIFE
BOUGHT TRAGEDY, A TANNIN-SHORTENED LIFE;
A TELLINGLY PRECOCIOUS CEPHALOPOD;
A VITAL JOKE, WHERE ZYGODACTYLS PLOD
AROUND THE GERMAN COUNTESS,
THEN A FRUIT
SHARP WORDS DESCRIBED,
CONFECTIONERY'S CUTE
RQUESTS FOR LOVE, WAY IN OF WAY-OUT TYPE;
A VERSE FROM SELFSAME PEN AS CHERRY RIPE.
DECODE THESE CARDS AND YOU WILL FIND INDEED,
THAT SHUFFLING IS, OR SHOULD BE, ALL YOU NEED.
SO ENGLISH YET UN-ENGLISH YOU WILL FIND
THE ANSWER BY APPOINTMENT OF YOUR MIND.
