Featured Game of the Month for July '08: The Decktet · 7 July 08

July’s Game of the Month is the Decktet. It’s by guest designer P.D. Magnus. The Decktet, like Icehouse or Piecepack, is a 36-card deck containing 6 suits that enables a wide range of game designs within it. Here’s a description of the deck in P.D.‘s words:

“The Decktet is a deck of cards with suits, ranks, and named images. It is structurally unlike ordinary poker and tarot decks, meaning that you can do different things with it.

“The Decktet is a deck of 36 cards. There are six different suits: Moons, Suns, Waves, Wood, Wyrms, and Knots.

“For each suit, there is an ace and a crown. Between them are other cards numbered 2 through 9. These each have two suits. For example, the Market is a rank 6 card with suits Wood and Knots. Suits are not repeated at a rank, so there are three cards of each numbered rank. For example, there are 6s: The Penitent, the Market, and the Lunatic.

“Cross-suited cards give the Decktet a different structure than ordinary poker or tarot cards. In a trick-taking game, for example, it is possible to trump and follow a non-trump lead with the same card.”

There are six different games for the Decktet on P.D.‘s site, and guidelines for using the Decktet as a fortune telling system. Enjoy!
