About the Decks:
The Janken Deck and King’s Keys are designed to look and play like standard decks of cards but they simply use a different math.
The Janken Deck uses the familiar ranks of Ace through King but has five suits: Rock, Paper, Scissors, Water and Lizard. The Rock-Paper-Scissors relationship between the suits offers new levels of game play or you can try your favorite card games with five suits instead of four.
King’s Keys is a 4x4x4 deck with 64 cards. Instead of a rank and a suit, each card has a number, an item, and a color. A Mediaeval/Fantasy theme is suggested with the four colors representing Kingdoms and using Keys, Axes, Shields and Coins for items, but not all of the games are based on weapons and treasure.
I designed the pips to be bold and easy to distinguish for players who are color blind or need reading glasses (like me). The cards are all poker sized and printed in America on high quality card stock. The cards don’t rely on text, so if a friend can teach you the rules you don’t even need to understand English to play.
Basic games are included in each deck but all of the game rules (over 70 games so far) can be found here on the website. I will test and add new games over time and invite people to share games that they have invented. I will also continue to produce How-to-Play videos for YouTube and the website for people who don’t like to read the rules.
Who are the cards for?
I am unashamed to say that both of these decks are a bit nerdy due to their mathematical structure and many of my buyers embrace the nerd culture. But in addition to those game enthusiasts other excited buyers have been:
Families who game together
People who enjoy a challenging solitaire game
People looking for an unusual gift
People who appreciate the art and history in the face cards and want to support a local artist
Do any of those sound like your customers?
