MASTER LIST of Games playable with a MODIFIED (or UNMODIFIED) deck of STANDARD playing cards. PLEASE ADD!
- Glenn Laurent(glaurent)United States
Now most people are aware of the popular geeklist by Sonja of games playable with a standard deck of cards. A very useful list. At the risk of flames of piracy, I wanted to create a MASTER LIST of card games that are playable with a modified (or unmodified) STANDARD deck of cards. Modification rules include (but are not limited to):
Multiple decks of standard cards.
Marking up cards with *simple* symbols, numbers, or letters.
Addition of simple playing pieces (i.e. dominos, counters, poker chips, bits from easily aquired thrift-store games).
Variants of games playable with a single deck of cards.
Games playable with a 5-suit, 6-suit deck (i.e. rage, 6-nimmt, and similar geeklist items).
This list should NOT include the following:
(Standard card games using a single deck of cards)
***Update: as I've been adding games that require two decks, etc..., I've eliminated this restriction and am allowing ALL GAMES (EASILY) PLAYABLE WITH A STANDARD DECK OF CARDS.
The following restriction still applies:
Marking-up cards with large amounts of text (i.e. MtG) should NOT be listed.
Now a word about piracy. Please use this list as a reference to *try* out games that you may find appealing. Many of us waste a ton of money on games we have never played that we've seen on BGG that end up not beoing our cup-of-tea. This list will allow us to temporarily make some homemade versions of card games that look interesting *before* we go out and buy them. Am I making myself clear here? If you enjoy the game -- please, PLEASE support the designer.
Please add and please tip if you found this geeklist useful!
